—– Dhruva Bhat ( 2010 ) 

I studied in Hongirana for 9 years. I joined Hongirana from the beginning, which was started with just 52 students. We all have seen the efforts put by Shobha madam and Ravi sir, to provide excellent education in rural area. I’m proud to be the part of Hongirana family.

—– Sumukha Bhagi ( 2012 )

Hongirana ensures all-round development of the student. Students are encouraged to participate in curricular activities like sports, cultural events, adventure camps, field trips, etc.. Of course, that motivation and support from teachers guarantees excellence in academics….

—— Vivek Jadhav ( 2015 )

Hongirana, The place which brought out my inner talent. Which supported me to get back. Which inspired me to fight back. At last I realised it is not a place or not just an education institution.. It’s my family, where there is still care for me.

—– Shravya Sagar ( 2016 )

“The work of today is the History of tomorrow and we are its makers”

Juliette Gordon Law


Bharat Scouts and Guides with a membership of about 5.7 million is one of the largest non-governmental, non-political, voluntary and educational youth organizations in our land and is a mammoth resource pool to undertake massive transformation. Understanding the strength of this, National Integration Meet has been organized by BSG from 30th January to 3rd February, 2017 at Jeedimetla, Telangana to instill a feeling of togetherness or oneness towards one’s own country irrespective of one’s individual differences with regard to religion, region, race, culture or caste.

A week long National Integration camp got off to a colorful start at STC, Jeedimetla, Telangana. As many as 351 participants from 20 different states took part. We proudly admit that our Hongirana School of Excellence was the only institution chosen to represent Karnataka in such a nationwide integration meet.  Enthusiastic 8 Guides and 8 Scouts represented our school accompanied by a Guide Captain Mrs. Shilly Jose and Scout Master Mr. Girish.

The inaugural function had guides presenting dances depicting their culture and tradition of their respective states.  On the following days, State exposition, Festival of India, Exhibition, Food Plaza, Folk Song, Folk Dance, Face Painting, Integration game competition were conducted.  In such a wonderful forum, the participants of our institution secured First place for Folk Song, First place for Face Painting and Second place for State Exposition.

Away from their familiar predictable environment, the students stretched beyond their pre-conceived limits to assist in the success of the greater goal as a team.  They experienced how to overcome challenges through problem solving, leadership, persistence, self-determination, team work, readiness for service and care for community.

The National Integration Camp provided the students with an opportunity to understand the culture of other states, to embark on the need for maintaining the integrity and unity and to inculcate patriotism among the youth.  They shared their culture, food habits and learnt a lot from the camp.




Bhoomi R P of Class IX said, “It was one of my life time experiences.  I was greatly supported by my teachers and friends during the activities which came like a lightening in front of us as we hardly had time to plan for the activity”.


Aniruddha of Class IX said, “An on spot challenging competition was the face painting.  I am happy to say that I took it as an open challenge and gave my best.  My experience in Yakshagana helped me a great deal in this”.




Mrs Shilly Jose opines, “It’s a life time experience for me as well. Most of the students felt very happy to get a group of polite and helpful friends from different parts of the country and got an exposure to know their tradition and culture.  I am really thankful to the Institution for providing us with such a great platform”.

It was a heartfelt pleasurable welcome of New Year 2017 at Hongirana Hostel.  It all started the night of 31st December 2016 where the students were given an opportunity to exhibit their innate talent.  After the special dinner for the day with desserts and sweets, students from all the classes from Class V to II PUC came up with a wide range of cultural programmes and welcomed the New Year with great splendour.  The programme list comprised of skits, dances, songs, fashion show etc.  The fashion show by the girls was unique and commendable because it was the first time that the residential girl students came up with such an amazing show.  The young ones performed skits which had moral values.  The residential teachers also took part in it and motivated the children with their inspiring words.  They also entertained students with melodious songs.  Exactly at 12.00 am there was a camp fire and with a great cheer they all wished each other and retired to their dorms at around 1.00 am merrily.


Faizan Z N of Class VIII said “Institution gave us a wonderful platform to organize the cultural programmes to welcome the New Year.  PU brothers were the masters of the ceremony.  The students of class VI and VII performed skits which had moral values.  Ramp walk and skit by Sisters of PU was really praise worth.  As an outcome, most of us gained confidence over the stage.  We got to know about the hidden talents of each one of us.  This kind of opportunity will enrich us with new experience and creativity.  The dinner was very sumptuous and ultimate.  We all danced around the camp fire heartily and forgot our houses for a moment”.


The warden Mr. Rajesh shared his opinion as “We gave an opportunity to the children to exhibit their talent.  They proved their ability by grabbing the opportunity given.  The students enjoyed the food arrangement to their heart’s content as we had taken special care.  The teaching and other non teaching staff coordinated very well.  Totally it was a memorable event”.
