HISTORY / THE FOUNDERS
Bhagirathi Educational Society is a registered charitable educational society founded under the aegis of Bhagirathi Devi Charitable Trust which was established in 1959. The FOUNDERS, Smt.Bhagirathi Devi and her sons, established a Trust to promote and provide quality education to girls specially from the weaker and the under privileged segments of society.
The Late Smt Bhagirathi Devi and her sons belonged to the illustrious industrialist family of Panna Lal Girdhar Lal Targittiwale having their principal business activities in Delhi. The vision of the deeply religious lady was to uplift the weaker society girls by providing quality education to them. This vision was laced with passion and devotion, and her sons contributed through an admirable sacrifice of their time and money to establish in 1959 the Bhagirathi Devi Charitable Trust.
Towards this goal, Smt Bhagirathi Devi donated her house where with 60 students and 3 teachers the vision took shape in form of Bhagirathi Devi Arya Girls Sr Seconadary School. The single storied structure is now a three storied building with over 400 girl students and a staff strength around 35. In 1986 a primary school, Bhagirathi Devi Girdhar Lal Primary Public School, was established.
The founder Principal, Mrs Vimla Kapil with her extraordinary zeal and admirable devotion set an exemplary school management system and led to its remarkable growth.
Late Kishan Lal Chandiwale whose financial support and guidance gave immense growth to the fledgling institute.
Late Krishan Kumar Gupta who put put his personal work and health aside to attend many problems faced at every stage by the school.
Mr.Satish Chand Khandelwal has been a constant pillar of strength with his ability and keen knowledge to steer the schools during their formative years and has guided the institute in the right path.
