Nestled amidst a green canopy, Christ King Girls’ Hr. Secondary School is situated on the Velachery-Tambaram highway, just a few minutes away from the Tambaram railway station.
Our school, founded by the Apostolic Carmel Sisters, was recognized as an English medium school in 1940. Aiming to educate and empower the girl child, our school provides a strong foundation and helps in paving their way to being successful women. From a meager strength of 87, over a span of 82 years (1935-2017) we have now progressed to nearly 3000 pupils on our rolls ( std VI to std XII).
Humanistic and holistic education for all is the magical chant of Christ King Girls’ Hr. Sec School. We strongly believe that the values gathered in life, the kind of person you become and the aspects of life you have grown strong in, are what really matters. Special emphasis is on punctuality, personal hygiene and keeping the environment clean. Learning is through building confidence and self esteem. Life skills are taught through flexible, innovative programs. Communication skills are developed through regular assembly programs and participation in various cultural activities.
With Sr. Maria Karuniya A.C (Sr. Mary Helen Mercy ), the present Headmistress at the helm, the teachers and students are encouraged to step out of their comfort zones to take up challenges and opportunities to bring out the best in them.
Opportunities are provided to the students to learn various extracurricular activities like Folk Arts, Music, Karate, Bharathanattiyam. They are also encouraged to pursue sports interests like Football, Athletics, Kho-Kho and other sports events.
The students of our school excel in academics and co-curricular activities too. The training they receive during their stay in our school helps them to adapt themselves to the changing world they live in thus bringing about changes to the society as they serve as selfless Doctors, highly qualified Engineers, service minded IAS officers, Teachers and Mothers.
Our school has built up a reputation for providing quality all round education to the girl students of our locality and beyond. With the blessings of Christ King our patron, in the footsteps of Venerable Mother Veronica, we strive to move forward in serving the society.
