Malayalam will be introduced as an additional language from Class III onwards for students of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Pattom, from this academic year.

The Director of Public Instruction (DPI), Kerala, who is the chairman of the managing committee of KV Pattom, has asked the school authorities to introduce Malayalam in the curriculum which till now was available as an additional language only from Classes VI to VIII.

“The objective of this initiative is to ensure that students in Kendriya Vidyalaya are introduced to Malayalam from an early stage itself,” Director of Public Instruction Sheikh Pareeth said.

Some Kendriya Vidyalayas here, such as KV Pangode, have introduced Malayalam from as early as Class II.

Kendriya Vidyalaya Pattom principal S Neerada said the school was prepared to implement the Director of Public Instruction’s directive without any delay.

“We are quite happy that students will get a chance to familiarise themselves with the language right from the primary stage itself,” she said.
