History

TML Inc. wanted to provide religious and secular education for students in San Fernando. The Prince Albert Street Mosque agreed to loan the mosque hall for an initial period of five years. On Monday the 19th January, 1953, TML Primary School opened its doors to 37 children at the Mosque Hall at Prince Albert Street. The first Principal was Mr. Murtuza Baksh. The enrollment at the time was 37 and there were 5 teachers including the principal. The late Moulvi Ameerali blessed the school. The formal opening was done by the then Minister of Education, Mr. Roy Joseph. Mr Noor Hassanali, then Magistrate for Victoria and former President of the Republic was the first Recording Secretary. The first Manager was the late M. Y. Khan who was the Imam of the mosque.

 

On Wednesday the 6th of November, 1991, the school moved from the Mosque Hall to its present location on Farah Street.

Mr. Harry Narine and his staff occupied the new school with 386 pupils. The Present Manager is Mr. Sharaze Muradali who has been the Manager since 1976.

Some individuals who were instrumental in acquirinq a new location for our school were Mr. Nabab Ali and others from the TML Council and Board as well as Mr. Shamshad Ali and Mr. Harry Narine, Past Principals. 

 

Individual classrooms, playing area , library , Science room and Resource room were some of the new facilities enjoyed. Today the school has air conditioned classrooms, computer room , a refurbished washroom for boys and girls, covered assembly area and a building next door to do the Visual and Performing arts.

 

In 2013, TML Primary School San Fernando celebrated it's 60th Anniversary with the present principal Mrs. Camille Hosein.
