History

Our School History:-

The great “Danveer” Rai Bahadur Ch.Malha Singh had long been maintaining a primary school at Indora which was opened in 1875 by English Govt. All most the expenditure was born by him. But generosity could not satisfy his desired to spread the education. for this purpose ch. Sahib purchased 50 canals and 5 marlas land for school building from ghasita & charta of Indora for rupees 382 on 29-02-1916. Foundation stone for establishment of school in the memory of ch. Sunder Singh father of Ch. Malha Singh was laid by Col.Buck the then Dy. Commissioner of Kangra Distt. in 1916.
In 1919 R.B.Malha Singh expressed his desired to handover the then existing Primary school to Rajput committee if they could properly look after it accordingly Ch. Kharak Singh Hony. Magistrate, R.B.Ch.Lehna Singh, Thakur Kirpa Ram and Thakur Singh came to Indora, Ch. Narain Singh also joined him. The idea to raise this school upto high school was discussed and committee of 16 leading Rajput were formed with it Ch. Malha Singh ji its president and Ch. Khark Singh its manager. Ch. Malha Singh promised that he would give Rs. One Lakh in addition to school building and its equipment and so long as Rs. One Lakh was not deposited in the bank; He would bear all the expenditure. In 1922 Rs. One lakh was placed in P.N.B. Lahore middle school building was ready in 1920and the high school building was in progress. Masons were Mohamad Ali and Jan Mohammad it took about three more years to complete this historical school building. The school building was comprising of ten rooms (25×20) A hall (50×30) three godowans , two hostels , ten staff quarters , two kitchen , one dining room, two tuck shops and paccca well and kacha tank . up to 1921 it was rajput middle school & 1923 24 it was Sunder Singh Malha Singh (SM) Rajput High School. It was recognized in 1924 and First matric batch was out with good results. Fourteen out of seventeen students passed with good marks.
Ch. Malha Singh showed keen interest in the functioning of school. According to him as most the committee members were outsiders and their interest steadily declined except Ch. Kharak Singh , TH. Kirpa Ram, Ch. Narain Singh. So Ch. Sahib formed another committee / Trust named S.M.S. D.Rajput High School with the objective to raise its status to an inter collage level. Ch. Sahib promised to donate another One Lakh Rs. for it. But the dream of collage could not be fulfilled during the life of Ch. Sahib.
. The S.M.R. High school was handed over to H.P. Government in April, 1971 and it was upgraded to Senior Secondary School in 1986 by Himachal Pradesh Government. this school was renamed as Govt. Sunder Singh Malha Singh Senior Secondary School Indora in 1990 in everlasting memory of Ch. Malha Singh. His statue was also installed in this School campus by Then Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh Hon’ble Virbhadra Singh Ji on 22 Feb 1989.
