PON VIDYA MANDIR SR. SEC. SCHOOL, the dream project
of Pon Foundation came into existence in the year 2009.
The beginnings though modest, the goals are big. The
aim of the foundation is to design an institution which
would in future become a beacon for excellence in education.
The philosophy of the school believes in the holistic
development of every child.

Individual attention is given to the pupils with the aim of chiseling them to be confident, inspired individuals trained for leadership and for shouldering higher responsibilities in life.
Our endeavour is to equip every child with all the life skills necessary for a scintillating future and to face the world with self esteem and self confidence. Hence our mission statement is "Let Every Child Blossom."
The school aims at developing the total personality of the child to make him/her a better citizen of tomorrow, by imbibing in him/her the qualities of leadership, reverence for Indian culture, regard for elders and respect for the noble ideals and norms of society. We are of the firm belief that as an institution dedicated to the cause of education, we must help children to:
- Have a sense of pride in our rich cultural heritage, ancient wisdom and value systems that will go a long way to face the challenges of tomorrow
- Recognize their potential and shape them into confident, responsible, balanced and multifaceted individuals with well-groomed personalities
- Set high ambitions in life and encourage them to passionately pursue their goal with steadfastness
- Become lifelong learners, gain knowledge, think, question, apply, innovate and be in control of their lives and at all times
PON VIDYA MANDIR SR. SEC. SCHOOL has been started with a great passion for providing quality education for the children in and around Karur. We have been providing a competent environment that facilitates the children grow confidently and gracefully.
Children are precious gifts of the Almighty. Every child in Pon Vidya Mandir Sr. Sec. School matters a lot to us. We are happy that our parents have welcomed our mission and vision and have joined us in this mammoth task of bringing up the children..

CBSE Vision – “The CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) envisions a robust, vibrant and holistic school education that will engender excellence in every sphere of human endeavor. The Board commits itself to provide a stress-free learning environment that will develop competent, confident and enterprising citizens who will promote harmony and peace”.
The method of evaluation would be Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE). Our school is committed to the academic transcendence of all our students keeping in mind of all norms laid down by CBSE.
Chinmaya Vision Programme
The Chinmaya Vision Programme (CVP) has its roots in Poojya Gurudev Chinmayananda's vision of education. Swami Chinmayananda was not only a legendary saint but also a visionary with a clear insight. CVP insists on "Yatha Dristi Thatha Srishti." To one whose vision is narrow, the world appears narrow and on the contrary to one with a vision, infinite are the potentials in the world. CVP aims at gifting our children with the right vision and right attitude to make them achieve success with greater peace and happiness and ultimately transform as ideal citizens displaying the role of humanity on the earth.
The programme is indeed a comprehensive educational strategy identified under four heads:
• Integrated Development of the child(i.e. physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual )
• Indian Culture
• Universal Outlook
Swamiji saw children as builders of future. He designed and organised CVP to teach children principles of our religion and culture and help them realize their innate potential in the light of dynamic spirituality.
Today's academic education is merely 'a lot of information' on many subjects. But, in reality, education has the larger purpose of transformation of the individual. Hence CVP's 'education with a vision' becomes more relevant in the present scenario.
A judicious combination of academics and cultural and value education is the purpose of CVP. The programme complements academic excellence by giving the child an added dimension of learning values to make Vidyalayas true vidya- alayas i.e., temples of learning.
CVP aims to lead all children to evolve with outstanding and lasting character and achievement. CVP is concretisation of education with integration of intellectual and spiritual development with a perfect blend of patriotism and universal outlook.
Enshrines the philosophy of education
Nurtures physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual growth
Helps discover inherent divinity
Integrates and exposes to Indian culture
Creates dedication and commitment
Imparts universal holistic view of life
Unfolds the child to blossom
CVP will be implemented in our school from this academic year which will have a significant bearing on the children in their successful future and a harbinger of good fortune.
WHY PON VIDYA MANDIR SR. SEC SCHOOL?
There are umpteen reasons for the parents to choose Pon Vidya Mandir Sr. Sec. School as an ideal school for their children. We have listed a few amongst them.
- Well-qualified, well trained, committed teaching fraternity.
- State of the art infrastructure in the form of well-equipped labs for science and languages.
- Opportunity for the students to realize practically the theoretical concepts learned with hands on experience.
- Abundant opportunities are provided for the students to showcase their inherent talents in ways of club activities and General Assemblies.
- Student-centered learning focusing on the needs of learning styles, placing the teacher as an adept facilitator of learning. Accordingly suitable modifications have been incorporated in the design of the curriculum, course content and interactivity of courses.
- As seeing visually what they learn will enable the students to gain knowledge what long hours of lecturing cannot do so, field trips are a part of our curriculum. The field trips are for all grades, well designed with hand-picked locations and spread throughout the academic year.
- No formals for students from Pre Primary upto grade V.
- THE HINDU READING PROGRAMME:
Staying abreast with current affairs, both nationally and internationally is of paramount importance. To ensure our students are enlightened in current affairs we have subscribed to The Hindu student edition. We have developed a unique method wherein it is mandatory for the students to find answers to questions based on a particular day's newspaper and submit to class teacher. Prizes are awarded at the end of each month for students who have submitted the answers regularly throughout the month. This is to make the students develop the habit of reading newspapers regularly which would reap them the benefits later on in their career as after all, ‘Rome was not built in a day.’
- Every child on stage:
At Pon Vidya Mandir Sr. Sec. School every child is important. As a proof of this it is seen that every child pursuing studies at Pon Vidya Mandir Sr. Sec. School is on stage during the school events such as Sports Day and Annual Day. Every child is given an opportunity, on a rotational basis to present the Thought for the day, render Thirukkural, readout the day's headlines which would be instrumental in liberating them from stage fear. To promote communal harmony and unity among all, we also make children to read from The Bible, The Quran and The Bhagavad Gita.
- A well knit and well maintained fleet of buses for a safe and comfortable transport.
- A perfect, comfortable hostel facility with all required amenities, separate for boys and girls is available where the parents can absolutely leave their children in our reliable care. The students are adequately taken care of and also have the privilege of having study hours under supervision of teachers.
- All work and no play make Jack a dull boy. Sports are imperative in any educational institution to have fine musculature and a supple body. Moreover, to develop a sound mind, a sound body is essential.
- Growing children require regular physical exercises, games and sports, not only to enhance their vitality but also to develop team spirit and sportsmanship. Valour, courage and fortitude to face adversities in life are also inculcated through sports.
- Children are budding scientists and our aim is to ignite their minds, to promote scientific temper, our school organizes carnival of eureka to bring out the latent talent and bringing out the curiosity of the child. Here we give opportunity to the child to explore the scientific world.
- Our children are inspired by exposing themselves to child prodigies to show that age is no bar for achievement. We also instill the never die and never give up spirit by associating with great people.
