CHSV Assessments

Our Approach to Assessments

At Chettinad Hari Shree Vidyalayam, we recognize that teaching, learning and assessment of that learning are fundamentally interdependent. Learning outcomes include knowledge and understanding of a subject as well as development of skills. Assessments are both formative (that is “assessments for learning” – these are on-going assessments done during the entire term to assess and assist students’ progress in building understanding, skills and knowledge) and summative (that is ‘assessment of learning’- to assess students’ achievement of understanding, skills and knowledge).

Our assessment approach recognizes that learners

  • have different learning styles
  • have different cultural experiences, expectations and needs
  • perform differently according to the context of learning
  • need to know their progress, achievement and areas in need of improvement in the learning process.

Coastal Clean Up

Coastal Clean Up

September 9, 2018  

All of us find it extremely disheartening to see the beach polluted with garbage. So, when we heard about the clean-up at Besant Nagar beach, the students of classes IX, XI and XII jumped at the chance. This event was organised by the Indian Maritime Foundation in collaboration with the American Consulate. Many students from various schools and colleges participated in this event. Everyone worked together to pick up as much garbage as possible to clean the beach to our maximum potential. We all are grateful for having been part of this event since it gave the opportunity to help create a change.

Celebrations and Festivities

Celebrations and Festivities

Onam and Krishna Jayanthi  

To celebrate Janmashtami and Onam, students put up cultural programs with dances and songs depicting the life of Lord Krishna, his antics and amazing feats. A traditional dance of Kerala and a song were performed for Onam. As an addition to the Janmashtami celebrations, there was an inter-house Matka Breaking event held, symbolising Lord Krishna and his friends stealing butter. The students formed human pyramids to break the pots. The event was extremely joyful and entertaining to watch and be a part of.

Students of the Primary celebrated Onam by decorating their class rooms with flower carpets.  The Pookalams outside every class was a sight to behold and the fragrance, welcoming. Discussions on the festival and its significance added to the celebration.

Ganesh Chathurthi

To celebrate the spirit of Ganesh Chathurthi, we the students of middle school, decorated our classes with flowers and kolams. A beautiful Ganesha idol was brought in and we performed pooja and offered delicacies that we had bought from home. Students learning sculpture made eco-friendly idols of Lord Ganesha during their classes.

Teachers’ Day Celebrations

Teachers’ Day Celebrations

September 5, 2018 

Dear Colleague,

Times have changed, so have generations

And you have taught them all

Gen X,Y & Z ;

But one thing remains true and undefeated

Your strife to change the pupil to a scholar.

Imparting is not a career, it is not a profession, not an occupation

For what would you call something you do with dedication?

It is a promise, a pledge you make to yourself,

To create a better tomorrow through your novice.

Tamizh Day

Tamizh Day

August 3, 2018

Tamizh Day was celebrated in honour of the birthday of our school’s founder Rajah Sir Muthiah Chettiar. The event started off on an auspicious note with the lighting of the kuthuvilakku and a speech by the chief guest Ms. Anita Kuppuswamy. This was followed by an array of mellifluous songs, inspiring speeches and graceful dances by the students. The highlight was the engaging debate between the senior students on the topic ‘Did the invasion of the British impact the Tamizh culture favourably or adversely?’ The adjudicator added to the celebrations by reciting an inspiring ‘Thirukkural’.

Relief for our Neighbour

Relief for our Neighbour

The students of class 11 wished to provide humanitarian assistance to the victims of the Kerala Floods. Students from classes 6 to 12 were involved in this initiative to render the maximum help possible. Non-perishable materials and medicines were the need of the hour. Each grade level was requested to contribute one item. The 11th and 12th grade students collected, segregated and packed these items in boxes. These boxes have been sent to Kerala through NGOs. We sincerely hope that the efforts taken will make a difference.
