From the Principal’s Desk


Welcome to Chettinad Harishree Vidyalayam, Coimbatore – a school that stands as a beacon of innovative education and a nurturing environment for our children. At CHSV, we believe that education should be a journey of self-discovery and holistic development, where students are encouraged to savor the richness of an “unhurried childhood.” We embrace a unique philosophy and approach that encompasses socio-emotional learning, green education, wall-less education, and Purna Vidya, all while offering the globally recognized Cambridge Assessment International Education Curriculum.


In a fast-paced world, we recognize the need to slow down and allow our students to explore, learn, and grow at their own pace. An “unhurried childhood” is at the heart of our philosophy. It’s about providing a stress-free, joyful, and balanced childhood, where students can cherish the process of learning, nurture their natural curiosity, and develop a love for knowledge that lasts a lifetime. Our pedagogical practices are carefully curated to aid the transformation of our learners, preparing them for life’s challenges.


We understand that academic excellence is just one facet of education. Our Socio-Emotional Learning program equips students with essential life skills, fostering emotional intelligence, empathy, resilience, and effective communication. Through our Green Education initiative, we encourage students to connect with nature and understand their role in preserving it. They learn the value of sustainability, conservation, and responsible living. Our Wall-less Education approach takes learners beyond the classroom, promoting experiential learning through field trips, outdoor activities, and interactive projects. It fosters creativity and critical thinking, encouraging students to learn from the world around them. Purna Vidya, or “complete education,” is an integral part of our curriculum. It’s a blend of ancient wisdom and modern knowledge, providing a holistic education that nurtures the physical, mental, and spiritual dimensions of a child’s growth. This program helps students stay rooted in their culture and heritage while embracing global perspectives.


We understand the importance of offering a curriculum that prepares our students for a global future. The Cambridge Assessment International Education Curriculum is designed to provide a world-class education, equipping students with the knowledge, skills, and values they need to succeed in an increasingly interconnected world.


At CHSV, our commitment to academic excellence is combined with our unwavering dedication to nurturing well-rounded individuals who are ready to make a positive impact on society.


We look forward to partnering with you on this incredible educational journey. Together, we can help your child grow academically, emotionally, and ethically, and become a responsible global citizen while staying grounded in their roots.


Thank you for choosing Chettinad Harishree Vidyalayam, where every day is an opportunity for our students to learn, explore, and thrive.
