Origami is a Japanese word which means ’Paper folding’. It is a craft that all ages enjoy doing . By this technique one can create objects and shapes on paper by folding without using scissors or glue.

This is taught in schools from lower classes because young children can learn about basic concepts in Mathematics like lines, planes, shapes ,and their relationships.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Principal’s Note
“Where love and skill work together, expect masterpiece!” goes the
famous proverb by John Ruskin. The adage is the guiding factor for The
Hindu Senior Secondary School, Adyar that is in its 31st year “Loving,
caring and nurturing talent is what we believe in, it has provided us
with wonderful results so far.  We don’t follow a rigid system in the
school at all, and believe in giving our students full freedom. The
school believes in gearing up to equip the students to adapt to the
current technological revolution that is taking the country by storm.
The school was established in the 1978 under the auspices of the Hindu
Education Organization, the school follows holistic approach towards
child development & follows a CBSE syllabus, it is most popular for
mixing academics and extracurricular activities in equal proportions.
The ideals of The Hindu Senior Secondary School at Indira Nagar are
based on imparting value-based education to the next generation.
noble ideals of our ancestors and basic principles of the society are
taught so that the social, intellectual, spiritual, physical traits in
children go through comprehensive development. “Many of our teachers
have been with the school since its inception, and have helped the
students provide consistent results year after year. We also ensure
that our cultural activities benefit our students by developing their
organizing skills.  The school has always had a good record in sports,
too.   The Hindu Senior Secondary School does not insist on taking in
only toppers, and that the heterogeneous student population is the
school’s identity. All the students are offered opportunities to
perform.  People seek the school as it plays a major role in fostering
the fine arts talents in students.  Our approach is what keeps the
students rooted to the school forever. Frequent brainstorming sessions
and inter school discussions among the teaching faculty are conducted
to tackle any speed breakers in the academic mainstream or
co-curricular activities.
“We believe in creating achievers in all
walks of life, it is this philosophy of ours that has ensured that our
alumni are spread across various fields, including sports”. To make an
interactive environment for students beyond classrooms, the school
also allows constant junior senior interaction among its students.  We
have noticed that students tend to look up to their seniors and are
very receptive to their ideas and advice.   We as teachers, are
constantly keeping in pace with that curiosity.  The Hindu Senior
Secondary School is one that does not believe in hanging on to old
values, it changes them with the time, and this philosophy has
definitely kept it in good stead.
