Whenever I have read any part of the Vedas I have felt that some unearthly and unknown light illuminated me says Henry David Thoreau an American Thinker. This became true when the students of Chennai Public School chanted Vedic Mantras in an inter-school Vedic Mantra Chanting competition conducted by D.A.V. Group of Schools. The competition was held in four categories at D.A.V Girls Senior Secondary School, Gopalapuram. Students of the Dept. of Sanskrit wholeheartedly participated in it. It was an outstanding performance by our students since it was not just chanting alone they were expected to be thorough with the meaning of each Mantra. Many at times in the Senior Category they were asked to say word by word meaning of the mantras which was indeed a difficult task. In Group B (class I – III) and in Group C (class IV – VI) we were one among the top three winners and in Group D (class VII-IX) all the three winners were from our school. Thus CPS Students proved that they will never lower their goals to the level of their abilities instead raise their abilities to the height of their goals as said by Swami Vivekananda by bagging 5 prizes. Kudos winners. You made us proud once again.
Christmas is the festival which inspires the spirit of sharing and caring. Soaking in the spirit of Christmas tiny tots of CPS celebrated the festival with enthusiasm. The pre primary blocks were beautifully decorated and everybody was dressed in red and white (Santa’s favourite colours). The students sang melodious carols and danced beautifully to wish their teachers and classmates. The significance of the festival was explained to the students through the Christmas story. To inculcate the spirit of sharing they made tiny Santas & Christmas trees and exchanged among their class mates as a small Christmas gift. The boundless joy of celebrating the festival was visible on the faces of all the children.
A goal without a plan is just a wish. Chennai Public School has played a pivotal role in securing admissions in World Class Universities for its students. To continue this tradition, a career guidance program was held at CPS, Anna Nagar.
CPS exposed its senior secondary to a whole world of possibilities through a student–friendly interaction with delegates from the most prestigious National University of Singapore – Mr. Rajaram , Office of Admission at NUS and Mr. Paramasivam visiting Professor in the field of Engineering. These students were urged to explore the various aspects of studying abroad. Emphasis was on individuality and creativity that would lead to a variety of courses offered. CPSites utilized this opportunity to the hilt as they took their foundational step towards their aspirations and dreams.
The able representatives were successful in simplifying the understanding of the foreign university systems and drew an easy comparison between home and foreign university systems. The information provided gave the students a thorough walkthrough of the universities represented. With no second thought , the students agreed that it was a horizon widening experience and such initiatives are truly a harbinger of an array of prospects to the student fraternity.

Everyone makes mistakes, especially in the process of learning something new. Sometimes, these mistakes can be discouraging, especially if they are hard to erase. But, when it comes to working with a lump of clay, a child can easily correct the mistakes. It’s easier for every child to learn and keep trying new things when they know that clay modelling mistakes are not permanent. The recently held “Dummy Dolls” day at pre primary, motivated the kids to show their creativity and ideas in creating new objects out of play dough. They figures created by their tiny hands were cute and lovely to watch. Each did a model and carried home to show their creativity to their folks.
