TIRUCHI: The Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, Tiruchi, has entrusted the management of RSK Schools to Global Indian Education Foundation (GIEF), a Singapore-based non-profit education foundation, having close ties with the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan.

Nandakumar, Director Academic and Shailesh Temurnikar, Trustee, on behalf of the GIEF, in the presence of BHEL Executive Director V. Gopalakrishnan. A BHEL release said the appointment of the GIEF was made as per the recommendation made by a committee constituted by the BHEL, in view of the decision of the Montfort Brothers to hand over the responsibility at the end of the current academic year. The GIEF runs leading international schools in Singapore and Malaysia, besides running four CBSE schools and providing management services to 10 other schools in India

The six-member committee comprised three senior teachers, A. Rajagopal, Judy Sebastian, and Daphne Freeman, the secretary of the Parent-Teachers' Association, S. Shivashankar, an Advocate, and two members of the BES, R. Shankararaman, Senior DGM, and Prakash Achan, AGM.

The GIEF's plans include introduction of school management software and offer of a full scholarship inclusive of fees, boarding and lodging, to one student of Standard X every year for study in Singapore up to Standard XII. There will be no change in the fee structure and teaching staff opting to continue under the new management will enjoy the existing facilities.

However, the GIEF will appoint a Principal of its choice.
