M.CT.P. Chidambaram - SecretaryThe years go by and our School continues on its onward journey. We can all look back, with pardonable pride, and view the progress made so far and achievements gained against many odds.
There is a well-known saying that if you feed a man you are only taking care of an individual, but if you educate him you are taking care of a whole generation. After reaching the Silver Jubilee milestone, the School did not lie on its oars or bask in past glory, but decided to strive harder and soar higher and higher in the realms of education and service to the society.
This has found expression in the form of the 'International Baccalaureate' (IB-Geneva) programme being implemented as an alternative school finishing diploma at the 11th and 12th standards. Considering the need for preparing the students to meet the present day challenges, we have thought it fit to launch the IB programme in our School. Taking into account the vast size of our country, there are not too many schools who have launched this programme in India. The IBO Geneva, Switzerland has granted us authorization to deliver the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. We are the first Indian School in Chennai to offer this international programme as of June 2009.
The main feature and the USP of this programme is in its global and state-of-the-art approach to education. Apart from preparing the students for seamless entry into streams of higher learning in India and aboard, it is unique, in the way it enables and catalyses students in being able to study and learn whatever they want to pursue, on their own steam. It sparks off the students in their quest for knowledge and literally delivers the world at the feet of those who enquire. It provides them simple tools on how to gather information and process it on almost any subject they wish to learn more about. It makes the student self sufficient and confident to face the world. We expect students to take advantage of this opportunity in large numbers.
