A building exclusively for lower classes with 18 class rooms has been dedicated to the memory of Dr.Vengudi Ramamurthy. Not to leave out the earlier President of an organization, a building had been named after Sri.A.Ramaswami Sastriar. Sri.C.R.Pattabi Raman who was the President for more than 20 eventful years had office in 1998 and a building with 21 class rooms had been built and dedicated to his memory.

Again an earlier President Dr.P.S.Srinivasan who had constituted substantially to the growth of the organization is being remembered through a building put up in his name.

The year 2002 was eventful in that the school had made its entry into the cultural arena.

The legendary Headmistress Parvathammal but for whose efforts this edifice would not have grown so fast, was sought to be remembered through an emotional dedication of a building named after her. This building was built with accommodation for an ATM at the entrance. The rest of the building was occupied by the branch of the Indian Overseas Bank as extension counter for some year. Thereafter since we needed more space for the school we had reclaimed it and the building it presently used by the Higher Secondary School.

One other important feature is the introduction of a training centre for exposing the teachers to modern methods of teaching besides teaching by various expert faculties invited from colleges and universities.
