Vth Chinmaya Parichaya - Orientation Programme for New CV Teachers
The 5th Chinmaya Parichaya - Orientation Programe for New CV Teachers was organised by CCMT Education Cell from 16th to 19th May 2017 at Chinmaya Gardens, Coimbatore. 125 teachers from 36 CVs and Vision Schools participated enthusiastically and were guided by Swamini Vimalananda and a team of CIRS teachers headed by the CVP Director and Principal of CIRS, Smt Shanti Krishnamurty.
