Al-Hilal English School is a not-for-profit school in Manki, Karnataka, which was founded in 1989 by late Mr. Sawood Hajika, and is managed by the Tarbiat Education Society. The school started off as a private venture but eventually partial control was passed to the Government. It covers ages 3 –18.


The late Mr. Sawood Hajika founded Al-Hilal English School in 1989. It started with a block accommodating Lower Kindergarten and Upper Kindergarten. The campus was expanded over the years in line with the increasing population. Now it is LKG to 10th Standard and is set to have a block for pre-university college within the campus.

The population of Manki, Honnavar is 11,000, but the people were lagging behind in educational opportunity compared to surrounding places such as Bhatkal, Honnavara, and Murudeshwara. That changed when the school was established.


The present strength of the school is 450 students.

Buildings and grounds[edit]

The school has a school building of 8000 square feet, a play ground, a mosque and a residential building for teachers.
