ABOUT Vaasavi

Arya Vysya Samajam, Pondicherry was established on 29th October 1933 and it was registered under the French Act as a Society for the welfare of the Pondicherry Arya Vysya community people. In the initial years Arya Vysya Samajam was concentrating mainly to provide educational assistance to the economically weaker section of the community.

Arya Vysya Samajam, Pondicherry has few properties in the heart of the town donated more than 100 years before by the philanthropic community people. One such property is two acres land at Muthialpet where the school building is now constructed. The land was vacated after a long legal battle with unauthorized tenants during the year 2002. A society that does not give importance to education cannot progress and therefore the elders of the community decided that they should do something to the society in the field of education which will not only help our community but also others. An Educational trust was formed on 6th June 2010 and the same was registered with Income-tax Department as a public charitable trust.

The school construction work was taken up during January 2011 and the first phase of 10 class room construction was completed during March 2012 and the school was inaugurated on 22nd June 2012 by His Excellency Dr.K.Rosiah, Governor of Tamilnadu in presence of His Excellency Sri Iqbal Singh, Lt.Governor of Pondicherry, Sri N.Rangaswamy, Chief Minister of Pondicherry, Sri T.Thiyagarajan, Minister for Education, Pondicherry and Sri K.Lakshminarayanan, M.L.A, Pondicherry. The Chairman in his welcome address stated that the building construction of the school will be taken up in stages and the entire building construction will be completed by the year 2017. The school building construction is completed now and all the necessary infrastructure required up to 10th Standard is provided as per CBSE affiliation rules and regulations. This was possible only on account of the liberal donations given by our Pondicherry Arya Vysya community people.

The School is growing from strength to strength and even though we have classes only up to 6th standard the total student strength has crossed 1000 during the current academic year. We have 44 spacious class rooms, an air-conditioned library [1500 sq.], composite lab, math’s lab and modern toilet facilities and R.O drinking water. The Trustees are putting forth their best efforts for the further development of the school and their main aim is to provide quality education at an affordable cost to one and all.
