Bethlahem students embody faith academia and tradition; and we hand it down to a new generation of young men every year
A school is not its building, or infrastructure, or playground or science labs. A school is not its syllabus or staff or head. A school is an atmosphere where each child discovers his own special talent and begins to believe in himself. This belief is not based on rank, or exam results, or first place in a quiz, or the fierce love of competition.The first principle of true teaching is that nothing can be taught. The teacher is not an instructor or task-master, he is a helper and a guide. His business is to suggest and not to impose. He does not impart knowledge to him, he shows him how to acquire knowledge for himself.
The Theme of our School is "Arise and Shine". Bethlahem Matric School was born in June 2003 with about 475 students and staff strength of 40 to spread the light of knowledge to the needy. Today Bethlahem caters to the need of around 4787 students with the utmost involvement of more than 300 dedicated staff. A well-designed architectural marvel with adequate open space for children to feel 'free and liberated' and an aesthetically designed campus with ample landscapes clubbed with amenities of international standards, an ideal location to pursue quality learning. The campus is scientifically planned, artistically designed and precisely constructed to meet the demand in grooming global citizens.
The School has been christened with name Bethlahem, the birth place of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who spread the message of peace and salvation. The Dream school has grown in leaps and bounds by the priceless effort of Mr. Gerald Selvaraja, the correspondent. To make his dream a reality, we have a team of hardworking educational calibers comprising of Director / Principal, Chief Administrator, Vice Principal, Academic Advisors, Academic Supervisors, highly qualified and experienced teaching staff and well trained non teaching staff.
The campus of Bethlahem covers an area of more than 12 acres with lush green environment and spongy lawns. The hills at the background adds beauty to the entire campus. The first building from the entrance is exclusively for kindergarten. The fabulous multi storied building is entirely for the seniors. The last building caters the primary students.
