“True morality consists not in following the beaten track but finding the true path for ourselves” – Mahatma Gandhi
These words are more pertinent and relevant to our institution. Keeping this as mantra, our institution has always stood in the forefront in envisaging and implementing novel and innovative concepts and ideas. In other words, it has been a pioneer in ushering in new schemes to realise the objectives and goals set by the founding fathers of PSG & Sons’ Charities.
The following are the “several firsts” of our school in Coimbatore:
Introduction of co-education
Employing a lady instructor in Physical Education (Mrs. Singh)
Laying Basketball court and introducing Basketball game
Introducing the scheme of “Hobbies for all” (every student was made to spend two hours per week) to foster innovation and creativity
Introduction of engineering education at school level in 1948
Introducing Tamil as the medium of instruction. The government enforced Tamil as the medium of instruction throughout the state only in 1938. Even before that, the school had started teaching Chemistry in Tamil as a pioneering effort from 1929. Madam Annie Besant appreciated this effort and wrote in her “New India” in praise of this
All these pioneering endeavours have brought laurels to PSG Sarvajana Higher Secondary School from time to time.
