INTRODUCTION Hari Om! “In all worthwhile undertakings, there will be risks of failure, of disappointments, of even disaster. To face them all with inner poise and firm faith is to discover the glory of final victory.” Swami Chinmayananda The ideology of nurturing the young minds with Gurudev’s vision for the youth which percolates into their hearts, is the footing for the art of man-making taken up by Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Kannamaly. The proclivity for holistic development of the child, sensitizing about the Indian culture, fostering fraternity and fierce patriotism, yet performing for the goodwill of the world selflessly makes us School with a Difference. The sevabhav is woven into the curriculum and minds of the children so subtly yet firmly that they become the way of life for them. Unravelling the spirituality and kindling the inner divinity, to awake and rise to lead from the front is what is expected from Chinmayites. From the humble beginnings twenty-five years ago, Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Kannamaly has walked the path of education carving its own space and name in true Chinmaya culture. The Silver Jubilee celebrations - “VISION 20-25” spanning across five years, are illuminated by meaningful themes each year. This year we begin the saga with ‘Green Campus’. We strive to etch our name in gold when it comes to man-making. With the plan for future well in sight and positive collective influence, we ready our students to take the leap forward and embrace the world as eligible citizens who are the torch-bearers of Gurudev’s vision. We are blessed to have Gurudev’s benevolence and vision to guide us towards excellence. In His service always, Unto Him, Our Best! CVK | 5

The term Students At- Risk no longer applies exclusively to the students who may be likely to experience academic failures or are likely to drop out of school. The term will now also include the students who are at the risk of developing mental health problems. 3. Once face- to -face classes start tending to the mental health of the students and don’t be in a hurry to teach and finish the syllabus. Give at least 15 days for the students to readjust. During this period try to identify the students at risk. 4. Schools have the responsibility of identifying the students at- risk and teachers are best placed to do this as they have regular interactions with the students. CVK | 26
