Harmal Panchakroshi Shikshan Mandal(HPSM) is a non-profit society actively involved in imparting quality education to students hailing from the village of Harmal (Arambol) and surrounding villages in Pernem Taluka of Goa for more than four decades.
This educational society was founded in 1967 with a mere enrolment of 26 students. Increase of enrolments in subsequent years led to the addition of a 3 storied building with 36 classrooms and a hall. Presently, with our yearly enrolment crossing 1400 students from nursery to higher secondary, the Society has again identified the need for additional infrastructure and undertaken construction of a three storey new building in village Harmal, Taluka Pernem, Goa which has almost reached completion.
HPSM now intends to focus on creating quality teachers for the future. The profession of teaching though respectable is not popular with today’s generation who choose more glamorous careers instead. HPSM’s Ganpat Parsekar College of Education endeavours to offer an integrated four-year course in Bachelors in Science (B.Sc)/Bachelor in Arts (BA) with Bachelor in Education (B.Ed).
