Namaste.

Namaste.

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 believe in VASUDHAIVAKUTUMBAKAM, the world as one family.

The culturally immersive experiences and opportunities for exploration that we provide 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 towards living harmoniously with nature aims to encourage students to use their knowledge, experience and skills to live in a nature-friendly, sustainable and peaceful manner.

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 to achieve them. 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 for parents to allow the space for children to stumble and self-correct their course rather than providing solutions directly.

Having said that, we believe that raising children is a shared responsibility. Habits and values are caught and not taught, and children learn values from parents, teachers 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 the well-being of the child.

We are together in this journey and we are looking forward to making this experience a meaningful and joyful one for the child and for all of us.
