The highly anticipated Inter-House Matka Breaking event saw students from the four houses of grades 9-12 vying to break the pot first. With just a few days of practice, they were able to build pyramids and break the matkas deftly, all in a matter of seconds. Individual events were also conducted and students participated with equal enthusiasm. All the corridors were lively as the whole school gathered to cheer for their houses during this adrenaline-pumping event.

Navarathri Celebration

It was a time to celebrate and come together as a class before we went for our term break. The whole school ushered in Dussehra, dressed in colourful, traditional attire, dancing to the rhythm of dandia music. Students of classes VI – VIII and IX to XII had dandiya sessions in separate venues. The day was even more special as our teachers also danced with us.

Akka Anna Day & Pot Luck

Akka Anna Day & Pot Luck

The potluck happened in the comfortable environment of our own classrooms, having invited those we are thankful to – our annas and akkas – to come and eat with us. It was definitely a humbling experience as we served them food we had brought from our homes, ate with them and laughed with them. It has become one of the many meaningful traditions at Hari Shree.

The evening of 4th September turned out to be one of the most pleasant and memorable days of this year. The teachers of CHSV were felicitated with the Service Award for completion of fifteen, ten and five years of service with Hari Shree. The teachers were also treated to an amazing variety of programmes by the faculty themselves, followed by High Tea in the Dining Hall hosted by our director, Smt. Geetha Muthiah. Who says teachers cannot have fun? We almost fell off our chairs laughing during the play, mesmerized by the music program presented by the Junior Campus teachers, and participated enthusiastically in a Music Quiz event. The dancing damsels of CHSV provided a visual treat for the finale. On the whole, the teachers went home that day with fond memories. - Charukesi Acharya

UTSAV

Culture is an inherent part of learning at Hari Shree. 

UTSAV is a salutation and celebration of our culture.

The session by the Dhananjayans, on the culture and traditions of our country, marked the beginning of the Utsav celebrations this year. The students of grades VI to VIII were the lucky audience for this session. Ms. Seethalakshmi’s session on the mouth-watering flavours of our forgotten, traditional food – Parambariya Unavu, was indeed a treat to the ears and mouths of the young grade 6 students. Indian ethnicity is woven into the very fabric of our living. Mr. Amarnath oriented the students of grade 7 on the Indian Weaves and Prints. The World Craft Council also conducted a workshop for students on weaving and craft using palm leaves. Erika acharya and Bhuvaneshwari acharya facilitated sessions on block printing using vegetables & paint and tie and dye, respectively. Ancient temples are not just places of worship but also well planned sites of conservation. Ms. Chitra Madhavan brought out the designs of water harvesting in temples.

Thamizh Dhinam

Hari Shree’s founder, Rajah Sir Muthiah Chettiyar’s 115th birthday was celebrated as Tamizh Day, with a lot of fervour. On this day, students and acharyas involved themselves in various performances. The students witnessed a dance called Pinnal Kolattam, in which the dancers gracefully move with colourful ropes to tie and untie various intricate braid patterns. There was also a very insightful skit. The performances ended on a fun note, with an energetic debate on the topic, ‘Kind Teachers or Firm Teachers?’, followed by a session with Mr. Ka Pazhaniappan, our chief guest, who spoke in praise of the Tamizh language. Overall, it was a grand and memorable celebration. Our Tamizh Day celebrations happened on August 7th, to celebrate our founder’s 115th birthday. The chief guest for the day was Mr. R P Shravan. We were treated to dance, music and drama performances. A few students gracefully danced to the famous song, ‘Kumi Adi’. Through a short skit, we learnt more about the lives of Avaiyaar and Bharathiyar, some of the most famous Tamizh poets and writers. It was a really fun experience.

Inter House Events

Inter House Events

The inter-house quiz on the Indian Independence Movement was conducted for the students of middle and high school on the occasion of our 73rd Independence Day, focusing on the period between 1855 and 1947.

The pin-up board contest saw the students and teachers of the four houses working together with passion, talent, sincerity, enthusiasm.

To commemorate Tamizh Day, an inter-house debate was conducted on the topic, ‘Kind teachers or Strict teachers?’.  The teams were a mix of teachers and students, ready to represent their houses and win. The debate took many interesting turns until the conclusion was decided by the judges. Although strict teachers are what we need, kind teachers are preferred.
