LATE SHRI PANDURANG RAYA BHATIKAR
1906 - 1987
Bhatikar Model High School (formerly known as Model English High School), was established by late Shri Pandurang Raya Bhatikar in 1935 and operated from a rented premises with just four benches and
twelve students. It was an arduous journey for a fledgling school but the Founder braved all odds to earn respectability for the institution he had founded.
Devout to the core, late Shri Bhatikar firmly believed that education and education alone could lay strong foundations of a prosperous future for Goan youth. True to his principles, he often imparted free education to many a needy student, and assisted hundreds of students, enabling them to complete their schooling and earn a respectable livelihood.
LATE SHRI RATNAKAR P. BHATIKAR
1931 - 1999
Late Shri Ratnakar Pandurang Bhatikar was among the first Goans to acquire a Master's degree in education. Brushing aside the lure of a stable and rewarding job, he joined his father when the school was passing through a critical phase in the early 50s. After his father retired from service, he took charge as the Head Master of the school. During his tenure the school attained heights of glory in academic and co-curricular achievements, and emerged as one of the top schools in Goa.
Gentle and compassionate, he nurtured and led a team of dedicated teachers and established a highly successful educational institution upon the foundations that his father had laid. For his contribution to the field of education in Goa he was awarded the National Award for Teachers in 1985.
