From the Principal’s Desk



Chettinad Hari Shree Vidyalayam was started with a vision to provide a space for our children to feel happy, loved and cared for, while they learn. As we grew and evolved over the years, so did our vision. We aspire for our students to transcend their personal needs and embrace VASUDHAIVAKUTUMBAKAM, the world as one family.

The culturally immersive experiences and opportunities go beyond celebrations of festivals and permeate into all that we do, to help students understand ‘why we do what we do’. With a combination of our strong ICSE and ISC curriculum, the progressive approach and the global outlook to learning, we strive to provide a strong foundation and life-long love for learning. Our approach aims to encourage students to use their knowledge, experience and skills to live mindfully, respecting everything and everyone around us.

The best learning takes place when the learner takes ownership of learning. Our goal is to inspire our students to take up responsibility for their learning by encouraging students to inquire, explore, reflect, set their learning goals and work towards it. The projects and assignments are designed to allow for independent learning and the mistakes made in the process are considered as opportunities to learn. Hence, it is important to allow the space for children to stumble and self-correct their course rather than providing solutions directly.

We believe that raising children is a shared responsibility. Habits and values are caught and not taught, and children learn values from parents, teachers, peers and society. We believe in a culture of tolerance and mutual respect and ensure that all stake-holders are heard and treated with respect. As a school, we understand our immense responsibility towards the development of the child and every decision we make is made keeping in mind the well-being of the child and the community.

We look forward to a meaningful and joyful learning journey!
