1981 JR School was founded by Dr. Rajcoomar Jhurry and started its activities in a small garage, giving courses only in design and building drawing.
Late 1980's The School provided training for corporate bodies such as General Construction Co Ltd with the introduction of the General Course in Construction. Dr. Rajcoomar Jhurry was the only employee doing all the tasks and processes for training Since then, JR School has expanded its portfolio of courses from Construction and Built Environment to Management, Tourism and Hospitality, IT, Beauty Care, Sports and Education.
1990s Very quickly, JR School which was originally spaced in a garage was becoming too small for the growing numbers of students joining this institution over the years; a building was thus constructed and courses were classified under the different academies - See Section Academies.
1998 In its quest to adopt international best management practices, JR School became the first educational institution in Mauritius to be certified ISO 9001:2000 by SGS. Now it has upgraded to the ISO 9001: 2008 Version.
