We feel very proud & happy to place before you a brief resume of the origin, history, development of schools and educational activities from year to year, from decade to decade of Camp Education Society, Pune - 1.
At the time when the need for education of the children of the masses and need for school for the purpose was very keenly felt, a band of social thinkers and leaders of community in the Cantonment, where education was confined to a few missionary schools conducted by philanthropic persons from Christian and Parsi communities, came together and established Camp Education Society in Pune Camp in the year 1885. Amongst them prominently the late Shri. Rajanna Lingoo Polas, the late Shri. Balkrishna Sayanna Motadoo, the late Shri. Gangadharbhau Mhaske and the late Shri. Lokhande took active part and started a Marathi Primary School in Camp area of Pune. The efforts of these leading men were blessed by the great social leader, Late. Mahatma Jyotiba Phule. A tiny, fragile, attractive and fascinating branches under the shade of which thousands of boys and girls were receiving drops of nectar of good education day after day.
