‘It is only through the long and arduous process of tolerance and discipline is true greatness achieved”

Sports and games are an indispensable part of School education. The Penielites actively participate, as it gives them a chance to break free from the monotony of a daily routine and identify innate layers to their character. This plays an important role by making students collaborate, communicate, interact and work in teams.

The students are trained by the physical instructors and actively involve themselves in various team and individual sport. They performed incredibly well and brought laurels to the school.

Those who have taught many people to do what is right will shine like the stars forever”- Daniel 12:3

Peniel Mat. Hr. Sec. School was founded by the (Late) Mr. John Kesari, an educationist in fervent pursuit of everything good and noble. Established in the year 1981, it sprouted from his strong desire to impart value-based education to those in and around Pallikaranai and to inculcate within children the importance of virtues, cautioning them against the dangers of an uneducated mind.

The shuttles of His (God’s) purpose move
To carry out His own design;
Seek not too soon to disapprove
His work, nor yet assign
Dark motives, when, with silent tread,
You view some sombre fold;
For lo, within each darker thread
There twines a thread of gold.
Spin cheerfully,
Not tearfully,
He knows the way you plod;
Spin carefully,
Spin prayerfully,
But leave the thread with God.
                                                            –Canadian Home Journal

One of  Mr. John Kesari’s favourite poem expresses most beautifully his unshakeable faith in his creator – the beacon of light during tumultuous days. Today, decades later the school stands tall with 47 educators teaching the students sincerely and efficiently. Our school has been providing integrated education for more than three decades to eager students. We continue to carry our beloved founder’s vision in our hearts, and with the blessings of God march forward to fulfil it.
