Velammal Vidhyashram is an unusual school as its liberal curriculum sets it apart, to focus on the study of the mind. Examinations are important and we do value academic success, although we fully accept that students mature at different rates, and that there are many indicators of success at school besides examinations.
Parents sometimes feel obliged to give their children extra coaching outside School, in order to give them a “competitive edge”. Although it is not our business to instruct parents in the choices they make for their children outside School, we do not approve of this. Children need to be given some time to themselves. A childhood crammed with study is not a good one. Life at Velammal is busy, and the children’s days tend to be very full. From early on, boys and girls are encouraged to be self-sufficient, and take responsibility for what they do. Velammal Vidhyashram is a remarkably friendly place and teachers are always happy to help the students manage their time.
Looking forward to see your child grow with us at Velammal Vidhyashram.
