Welcome to the Ganapathy chettiar vidyalaya cbse School Annual Report – 2019, a platform to communicate directly with all of you, our respected Guests, Well wishers, Benefactors, Parents, staff members and students. With delight I present this Annual Report which enumerates the labour of love, activities and achievements of the school during the academic year 2019-2020. Our enrolment has an upward trend, reaching nearly a three hundred students this year as more and more parents flock to this temple of learning making Ganapathy chettiyar vidyalaya as the first-choice for their wards.
Academic : The Academic Journey, 2019-2020 of GCVCS with our Staff, began when the old and the new staff members met together for the annual institution planning on 14th May 2019. We bade farewell to our new staff who joined the institution this year. We wish them well in their respective responsibilities.
Our pupils of Class I to VII walked into the school with new energy and enthusiasm to commence the new academic year filled with new dreams and surprises, on 6th June 2019 and were warmly welcomed at the school assembly and then initiated into the entire year’s programme by their class teachers.
Staff Development Programmes: Professional on-going learning of the staff is a key for quality teaching-learning at Ganapathy chettiar vidyalaya as it is the core of all that we do. This has ensured the development of skills, knowledge and understanding of the curriculum and current trends in teaching and learning. The staff participated in a variety of professional learning opportunities. Before the new academic year commenced, the entire staff had a day’s session on “Classroom Management” by the Vice Principal and another day on “Innovative methods of teaching” by our Principal . Twelve staff members are undergoing a year-long training programme “English Encounters” by Correspondent.
Education for Growth of the Inner Spirit: Daily Morning Prayer and assembly is one of several important and good practices we have at GCVCS. Each class prepares well for it with a specific theme with motivational thoughts/talks, abbreviation, G.K , Thirukkural , Current affairs and news.
GCVCS has always created an open and loving atmosphere within and around its campus, where all are respected and loved. In this era of doubt and communal disharmony, we help our students to live in love and harmony respecting one another’s faith and beliefs by celebrating in a grand manner the major religious festivals like Ramzaan, Diwali , Pongal and Christmas with meaningful prayer services thereby fostering unity and tolerance.
Academic Excellence and Intellectual Enhancement: True Education means training in excellence, which makes a person passionately desire to be a perfect citizen. We believe that learning takes place all the time and everywhere. The guided library period every week awakens in them a taste to value books and creates a desire to read good books, and not just depend on the internet for their assignments. Every exposure/interaction is an opportunity to learn, only if we are interested in improving and exploring.
Competitions and activities organized offer opportunities for students to learn the values of teamwork, individual and group responsibility and a sense of culture and community. Extracurricular activities provided a channel for reinforcing the lessons learned in the classroom in a real-world context, and are thus considered an integral part of a well-rounded education. Realizing this, opportunities were provided to students to take part in a number of activities and competitions-both intra and inter school. A Quiz competition was conducted for Our Students of grade V , VI & VII by Our Principal at school premises. Essay writing, Elocution and Folk Dance solo competitions gave our children a platform to display their talents and abilities.
The Sr.KG children celebrated Krishna Jayanti enthusiastically and it was a delight to see the little ones with flower baskets in hand, preparing the beautiful flower carpet along with their teachers at the entrance of the school. Their Green Day celebration was exciting and purposeful.
The Jr.KG children celebrated Colour display, nature observation, Apple crushed activity and vegetable print with the help of their teachers.

We celebrated in a simply manner National Day such as Independence Day , Republic Day and the World Environmental Day at our school campus along with our student and staffs support.
Experiential Learning through Club Activities: At GCVCS, we believe that extra-curricular activities greatly enrich the school experience of our students. The students can gain skills that may develop into lifelong leisure pursuits through various Clubs like Eco Cub, Science Club, Fine Arts Club, Literary Club, Health and Wellness Club and Young Global Citizen’s. We also provide a vast range of additional programs to support the students’ academic, social, cultural and physical development.
