The Vasai Vidnyan Adhyapak Mandal was established in 1994 – 95. In this year, the curriculum for std IX underwent a change. The teachers, students and their parents were excited about the new curriculum development. This was introduced by the government through teacher training programs during the vacation.
But many teachers expressed the opinion that it would not be proper to rely only on government training and a collective effort should be made by the teachers to better themselves.
Mr. Mukund bhide, Mr. D.D. Ingale, Mr. Deepak kulkarni took the lead and a meeting of Vasai Taluka Vidnyan Adhyapak Mandal was convened on 11th july 1994 under the chairmanship of Shri Chougule. The mandal was thus formally established. Mr. Bhide, Mr. D.D. Ingale and Mr. Deepak Kulkarni were elected as president, secretary and treasurer of the mandal respectively.
The other office bearers were Mr. Y.N. Patil, Mr. A.M. Patil, Mr. Jawale, Mr. Bhole, Mr. Kasar, Mrs. Neeta Shinde, Mrs. Kalpana Patil, Mrs. Vasantha Madhavan and Mrs. Rashmi Churi.
The inauguration programme of the mandal took place on the 3rd and 4th august 1994 and was graced by the then zilla parishad president Mr. Babanshet Naik and the education officer, education department, thane. Gradually, the secondary science teachers of vasai taluka enrolled as members of the mandal.
Taking into consideration the needs of science teachers and students, the programs of the mandal were chalked out in accordance with the objectives laid down and co-operation of the education department, management of schools, headmasters, science teachers and personalities in the field of science was sought.
Since the activities of the mandal began in 1994 – 95, monetary transactions were obviously executed and hence a need was felt to register the mandal as a charitable organization. Hence, vasai vidnyan mandal trust was registered on 5th november 1999 with the charity commissioner, thane. The registration number of the trust is e – 2110.
