Prajna (Wisdom), Karuna (Love) and Samatha (Equality) are the three inspiring words in the motto of the Siddhartha Senior Secondary School which is true to the spirit of the motto.
The foundation was laid to the Siddhartha School in June 1981 by the educationists and the philanthropists of Vellore town who founded themselves into a registered body known as “The people’s progressive society”, with Mr. R.P. Ulaganambi, M.A., B.L., Former Member of Parliament as the FOUNDER – PRESIDENT.
“Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man”, says Swamy Vivekananda, “Education is an all round development of the whole personality of man and ability to adjust himself to environment”, says Gandhiji, keeping these high ideals in view, the Siddhartha Senior Secondary School is imparting sound and qualitative education for the past 37 years in a laudable manner.
Catering to the needs of the children of vellore town and surrounding localities, the Nursery, Primary and Secondary sections of the school were started with modest strength of 85 students on 5 June 1981 by “The people’s progressive society”.
The school follows the central pattern of education formulated by the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi, keeping in view the needs of the children of the employees of the Central Government whose parents are liable to be transferred any where in our country. We develop a sense of National Integration among our students.
“Education is drawing the innate potentialities in the children”, says Gandhiji. Having this ideal in mind, we have introduced sports, games and work experience in our school citizenship training, moral instruction first aid and social service are also part and parcel of our school curriculum. Besides the academic Subjects to our students to exchange their views freely, we have arranged literary associations for them to become good orators, able administrators and responsible citizens. Indeed we are happy to give all opportunities to develop all around personalities.
After careful observation of the activities of our school during 1981-83, the Central Board of Secondary Education approved our syllabus up to VII std and granted full-pledged affiliation up to X-std in 1984 and up to XII std in 1987. The foundation for our new spacious campus of SIDDHARTHA on by-pass road was laid by the Hon’ble Minister for Education and culture, Government of India Mrs. KRISHNASAHI on 28.01.1987. Subsequently when the first-phase of our school with all basic facilities was completed we shifted in June, 1987. The senior secondary class (XI & XII) were started in 1987 with Mathematics science and commerce as optional subjects.
Nearly 500 students are studying and 60 Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff are serving in our institutions at present.
We wish to bring to the kind Notice of the parents that we have recently shifted our school venue to the spacious, comfortable calm and congenial school venue at No.30, Vasantham Nagar, Phase 3, Sathuvachari, Vellore – 9. We have also entrusted the management in the strong hands of ‘PEOPLES’ PROGRESSIVE TRUST so that the school would be grown into a full-fledged senior secondary school, with enough class rooms, laboratories and sports grounds for different games.
May we also bring to the kind notice of the parents that because of the four lane road in National High Ways, there was heavy traffic, and as the school was by the side of the by-pass road many hurdles and accidents have happened and the safety of our school children has lost its importance. So we have created A new Trust bought about 4 acres of land constructed enough class rooms and laboratories only to improve the standard and quality of Education imparted in our school. We assure that this change of venue and the management would definitely go a long way in providing all kinds of facilities, so that the future
young generation would make use of all these opportunities provided, and become a disciplined, patriotic, dedicated, the most sincere, hard working and responsible citizen of our Mother Land INDIA
