Radhakrishnan, Aikiyam's Principal
Each of our principals since the opening of the school more than thirty years ago, namely André, Roy, Mike & Sue, Anna, and Shankar have contributed to the growth of the school both in numbers and in quality, and each has added some special characteristics to the overall program. We remember them all with gratitude and appreciation, even as we celebrate the qualities of our current principal Radhakrishnan.
I am very humbled and honoured to introduce myself as the new Principal in charge of Aikiyam School, Auroville and to continue with my role in this excellent school community. I can assure you that I share in this school community’s dedication to caring for our students every day, while providing them with a meaningful learning environment
The 2022-2023 school year will mark my 25th year in education. I have served as Trained Graduate Teacher in Aikiyam School from 2009 to March 2021, and Principal in ALM Matriculation Higher Secondary School from 2004 to 2009. I also have been teaching science since I began my teaching career twenty-two years ago. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science Degree in Zoology, Bachelor of Arts in English and a Master of Arts Degree in English, Bachelor of Education and Master of Business Administration Degree in Education Management. I received the Certificate of honour from the Government of Tamilnadu for the good school management.
I firmly believe that every child can exceed and that the cooperation between home and school builds trust and self-esteem in students. So our students can use their highest potential to shape their future, consequently, the future of our community and our nation. With my goal of advancing the culture of excellence here at Aikiyam, I am devoted to continually exploring new ideas to meet the needs of all students and to interact with parents and community members more efficiently.
