Origin & History

    Green Land is a Premier name known for its excellence and quality education, run under the aegis of Sant Kirpal Vidyak Mission (Regd). The first prestigious Institution Green Land Sr. Sec. Public School saw its inception on 13th April 1992, Near Jalandhar Bye Pass, Ludhiana. The Foundation Stone of this Co-Educational, English Medium Day Boarding Institution affiliated to CBSE was laid by the most noble and honest personality, Sh. Ram Labhaya Rudhra whose dream was to start a school ‘with a difference’. Living by his ideals, a day-boarding Institution was established. Our beginning was small, but the dream was big and vision broad. The mission continued to grow under the Chairmanship of Sh. Rajesh Rudhra who is also the Director of the school. The escalating reputation and demand led to the establishment of four more Institutions in the city, Green Land Convent School- Dugri, New Subhash Nagar, Jodhewal Basti, Sec.-32, Chandigarh Road and Civil City Haibowal. The unique day boarding system caters to the need of the parents who believe that academic excellence plus value education with minimum burden on them is what they require.

    Our Institutions were the first to introduce ‘No Home Work’ system where the students don’t need to carry heavy bags. Our commitment to excellence, ban on tuition system which discourages mercenary attitude amongst teachers has made us most sought after.

    The Chain of Green Land Schools owes its success to the blessings of Sant Kirpal Singh Ji Maharaj, and the Trust which runs these schools is also named after Him. Being an ardent believer and worshipper of Sant Kirpal, the Chairman Cum Director Sh. Rajesh Rudhra named the Trust after this great Guru.

    Sh. Rajesh Rudhra started Green Land Sr. Sec. Public School with very limited resources. However, he always had the broad vision and noble ideals of the Founder President Sh. Ram Labhaya. The dedication of Sh. Rajesh Rudhra , his determination and endurance helped us soar high with mighty speed. It will be appropriate to say that Mr. Rajesh Rudhra is an Educationist to the core of his heart. This extraordinary brilliance of running Green Land Schools actually runs in his blood as his paternal grandfather Sh. Mukand Lal Rudhra was an able administrator. He was running a school very successfully before Independence in Sabour near Gujrat now in Pakistan.

    The sacrificial nature of all who were and have been associated with Green Land helped touch the zenith as we gained a massive applause not only in Ludhiana city but also all over India. Laying of foundation stone by the founder President Sh. Ram Labhaya Rudhra was in itself a pious beginning. The traditional, ethical and moral values he inculcated in his son Sh. Rajesh Rudhra helped in accomplishment of his dream for academic excellence combined with character moulding, personality development, spiritual education and perseverance of culture and heritage. This has been the mission of Mr. Rudhra, Sh. Ram Labhaya wished to establish a corruption free school where children are not cheated. Sh. Rajesh Rudhra efficiently gave a shape to this long cherished dream by establishing ‘No Home Work’ system where the students don’t have to grope for private tutors. He has given the best infrastructure in his schools. He has always endeavoured to make Green Land a second home for the students where teachers act as parents taking part in the great task of Nation building. More significance is attached to moral values and preservation of culture.

    A team of well wishers and mentors have always supported the Management and Staff of Green Land in letter and spirit. Mr. N.S. Kalsi Joint Secretary, Ministry of Home, Govt. of India was a great source of inspiration when the inception of this school took place on 13th April, 1992. Professor Gupta, Professor Satish Sharma, Principal Mehta formed the advisory body and gave their valuable suggestions. Sh. Chhote Lal, Vice Chairman, Mr. Ravi Kalra, Secretary of the School, Mrs. Sawdesh Chopra, Justice H.C. Modi, Justice Sudarshan Modi, Mr. S.K Sharma, Mr. Vijesh Kalra, extended their support and co-operation in every possible way.

    In the administrative field Mrs. Poonam Ohri (Principal) worked towards the progress of the Institution from 1992 to 1997. Mrs. Baldeep Pandher joined as the Principal in 1997 and since then she has put in her best to provide quality education under the able guidance of Sh. Rajesh Rudhra. Ms Vinita Sanan, one of the oldest faculty members worked with diligence and dedication as a Headmistress before she joined one of the branches as Principal. Many other senior members-Mrs. Naresh Bala, Sr. Sec. Incharge, Mrs. Ruby Sharma, Headmistress, Mr. P.K. Ahmad, H.O.D. Physical Education and Examination Incharge, Mr. Rajinder (Accounts Officer) have supported the organization in totto. Mrs. Poonam Satija, one of the Co-ordinators in the Primary Section and Mrs. Harpreet, an EX-PET also made valuable contribution during their tenure. Mr. Shabad Rudhra, joined the Green Land family as the President of the Trust on 13th April, 2007. Mrs Usha Rudhra, General Secretary of the school has always been a great pillar of support for the administration and teaching faculty of Green Land right from its inception. Mrs. Vijayata Rudhra, Topper in M.A. English from Punjab University, Director Green Land Convent School, Dugri joined Green Land family in 2007.
