We are a forward-thinking school aiming to prepare our children and students for a rapidly changing world by equipping them with critical thinking skills, global perspective, and respect for core values of honesty, loyalty, and compassion, leading to personal, physical, moral and spiritual development. Developing these skills is the corner stone of the education
We at Chinmaya commit to educate the whole child and honor the diversity of each individual intellectually, emotionally, socially, physically and spiritually by developing in each member of the student community the ability and passion to work wisely, creatively, and effectively for the betterment of humankind and implement the Chinmaya Vision Programme in its entirety.
Looking back at the saga of the school, it is worth recalling the humble beginnings the Vidyalaya had. It was on December 30, 1968, when Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda was at Thiruvananthapuram for conducting a yajna at University Stadium, that Sri. A.S Menon, the then President of Chinmaya Mission, assigned the 51 cents of land that belonged to Balaniketan to Central Chinmaya Mission for starting a school. Swamiji wanted the foundation stone laying ceremony to be held on January 1, 1969. He had a novelty in whatever he did. In his usual style he said, “We must have a golden trowel and then auction it. That will give us the seed money for the event.” But when the difficulty of acquiring a golden trowel in such a short time was conveyed to Swamiji, he retorted, “Old are always useless, I would like to see some young guys.”
The imperilled teaching learning process has opened up new vistas of learning environment both to students and teachers. We believe that capabilities and capacities of the student could be bolstered with the unique Chinmaya Vision Programme and the grace of Almighty and Gurudev. We envisage a learning environment that upholds the 21st century skills: Critical thinking, creativity, Collaboration, Communication and digital. Time to act is now as the corridors of unfathomable experience is waiting for you!!
The Vidyalaya, ours is trying its best to help our children achieve the academic brilliance and imbibe the cultural values as well. The changing waves in education and mode of learning was indeed a boon, helping to develop useful life skills, leading to a new perspective for a better future. Let us lead and prepare tomorrow with commitment efficiency, accountability and compassion, with an inner equipoise to face all the challenges of life with a smile keeping in mind our motto “Keep Smiling” to guide the future world with the right vision.
