‘The Bandivali Vidya Mandir Trust’ was founded on 10th June 1963 by the educationist Late Shri Vasant Vinayak Dewoolkar with an objective to impart education to economically backward and needy children. In June, 1963 educationist Late Shri Vasant Vinayak Dewoolkar started a school in Jogeshwari and at that time there were 28 students in the school. Then in the year 1965, the number of students increased thus to accommodate them the trust built a ground structured building in P. P. Dias Compound at Jogeshwari (East) also the trust got permission to conduct the classes of 8th to 11th std (S.S.C.). In the year 1969, as per the demand of parents the trust started classes from 5th to 7th std as well as the number of students increased to 500 to 600. Then in the year 1970, as per the need of the parents trust started a new school section at Shiv Tekadi, Majaswadi,Jogeshwari (East). Also, post year 1985 the trust started to impart pre-primary and primary education. Later, on 23rd September, 1998, our founder member Shri Vasant Vinayak Dewoolkar passed away and Mr. Purushottam Vasant Dewoolkar was appointed as the managing trustee by the trust unanimously.
In the year 2000 we renamed our schools as under :
- School at P.P.Dias Compund, Bandivali Vidya Mandir no.1 was renamed as ‘Late Vasant Vinayak Dewoolkar High School’.
- School at Shiv Tekadi, Bandivali Vidya Mandir no.2 was renamed as ‘Dosibai Jeejeebhoy High School’.
We have been imparting education to around 1200 students currently.
Since, both the branches of our school are ground structured buildings, the trust looks forward to build a multi storied buildings for both the branches in the near future so that more facilities can be provided to the students.
