I am very glad and appreciate your decision in selecting our school for your child’s education. I welcome you and your child to Velammal Vidyalaya, the first CBSE school incepted by the Velammal Educational Trust. As the Chairman of the Trust, I am very delighted to exchange my thoughts with you. I would have liked to do it personally as done in the past but due to time constraints, I feel this message will serve the purpose.
I hail from a very poor family from Sivagangai, a backward district in Tamil Nadu. I had my education in a local Tamil medium Govt. School, obtained a Civil diploma from a Polytechnic, did my B.E from an Engineering College, worked in Government Service for a short while, tried several businesses and also headed a Civil engineering company.
With this background it is only because of my belief and perseverance that I could create and today head, as the Chairman, an Educational Trust with 75,000 students and 8,000 teaching and non-teaching staff in 27 educational institutions. The question that always arises in my mind is, if I could succeed with the help of my dedicated staff, then why not my students?
My answer to this question is always YES! To achieve success, my belief is Dream Big, Think Differently, Focus Intensely, Work Consistently and Learn from the past failures. So our Trust in its journey plays a very vital part in making successful global champions. All that we expect from our Velammal parents is to do a continuous follow-up of your child’s progress in all his/her endeavours.
In this electronic and fast-paced age of competition, children are achieving very high distinctions, but the greatest support they require from you parents is in instilling human values, Indian culture and heritage, the secret of hard work and achieving ethical success thus creating a happy and successful life. This can be done only by parents and the institution. We are ready. I hope you are ready too.
Come let us join together and start our journey…
