Welcome to Govt. Victoria College

Few colleges in Kerala can boast of a tradition as rich and varied as Govt Victoria College, Palakkad. It has established itself as one of the most distinguished centres of higher learning in the State. Although the college was started as a Rate School way back in 1866, the institution rose into prominence as a college of renown in 1887 when a great philanthropist, Sri Nellissery S. Narayana Iyer donated land gratis for the construction of this noble alma mater. Since then the college has had a tradition of principals who were excellent academicians and administrators and students who were always eager to strive hard in the pursuit of knowledge. Today, Govt Victoria College occupies a peak of prominence among the cultural landmarks of this scenic district, if not of Kerala. It is spread over a campus of 25 acres punctuated by the imposing buildings housing various departments. The clock tower in the campus, the popular college maidan with its Victorian giant tree offering shade to one and all, and the towering Sri M. Krishnan Nair Gate, are just a few of the major attractions of this college.

Principal’s Message


Labunter et imputatur which is Latin for the moments slip away and are laid to your account is our college’s motto, a line picked up from a popular saying for a sundial, describing our own mortal lives. But it can also be seen in a more positive light, as each moment we experience is a cherished memory special uniquely to ourselves.

Government Victoria College, Palakkad, one of the oldest and most prestigious institutions in the state of Kerala, is one such sundial, which can give its students and teachers many cherished memories if we choose to listen, understand and work together not only towards the betterment of the College but also towards society and more importantly creating a positive change in each individual life that we may come across.

My ethos as a teacher is not just to teach students out of textbooks, but to mould and to prepare them for the real world, to teach them to keep calm, think clearly and to jump any hurdle that may stand in their way. I hope my new colleagues, supporting staff, students as well as their parents help me in my endeavours making it our collective mission to ensure growth and success at our college so that it may shine out as an example to every coming generation.
