The centenary year gives us an opportunity to look back and celebrate the achievements of the first hundred years. It is also the time to make sure that the school is well-placed for the start of its next one hundred years.
GUPS, Naripparamb is very proud of its academic tradition over many years and it has always been regarded as an outstanding school of the locality. The school has played and continues to play a critical role in the development of Thiruvegappura, specifically in terms of providing the nation with "intellectuals with human values and ethics" from a Government school system.
I have come to know that planning is underway for the centenary celebrations. Therefore all the old students and friends of the school are encouraged to keep up with latest developments by reading the blog: http://gupnariparamb.blogspot.com/
I wish all the best for the celebrations and feel that old students and former staff should provide recollections of their time at the school.

It is a historical fact that the famous Sanskrit scholar, Thiruvegappura Anayath Krishna Pisharody, was considered as the Guru(teacher) of Manavedan Raja, the then Zamorin Raja of Kozhikode. It was he who conceived the classical dance drama "Krishnanattam" based on his text Krishnageethi. Mahaakavi Ulloor has mentioned about this in his Kerala Sahithya Charithram(chapter 33). Manavedan Raja has mentioned about his Guru Anayath Krishna Pisharody in his text Poorvabharatha Champu. A commentary to Poorvabharatha Champu, Krishneeyam, was composed apparently by Anayath Krishna Pisharoty.
The place is famous as the birth place of world famous Magician Prof.Vaazhakunnam Neelakantan Namboodiri, Chenda maestros Thiruvegappura Rama Poduval and Sankunni Poduval, poet and Shaakunthalam translator Cheruliyil Kunchunni Nambeesan, Bhagavatham exponent Vazhakunnam Vasudevan Namboodiri and Scientist Dr.T.M.K.Nedungadi, a student and close disciple of Nobel Laureate Prof.C.V.Raman.
Recently, a young and dynamic Ayurveda Physician, Dr.N.N.Devan has started an Ayurveda treatment Centre "ASHOKALAYAM". In a very short span of time the centre has become very popular due to its unique specialities. A lot of famous people from all over the world is coming here to get pure and traditional Ayurvedic treatment.
Thiruvegappura is also famous for its historical importance. The Raayiranellur mountain temple -where Naaraanathu Bhraanthan(The lunatic prophet-one of the great twelve sons of Vararuchi) lived and taught his philosophy to the society in his own way- and Bhraanthaachalam temple(The main dwelling place of Naaraanath Bhraanthan) are historical attractions of this village.
