  1. This petition is an outcry that pertains to the recent shocking developments at the prestigious Carmel Higher Secondary School (henceforth be known as CHSS), Nagercoil, Tamil Nadu, India. CHSS is one of the best Schools in the district of Kanyakumari if not in the entire state of Tamil Nadu. The institution is aided by the Government of Tamilnadu in terms of funding and functions under the patronage of The Society of Jesus (Jesuits). CHSS caters not just to the academic prowess of the students but also is a powerhouse in the sports front at the district level. Having said that, in recent times information has surfaced that the management of CHSS are fiddling with the idea of conceding one of the playgrounds in CHSS for commercial purposes for the construction of a marriage hall. If the said marriage hall becomes a reality, then that would mean a direct infringement upon the rights of the students to have a peaceful & unperturbed ethos within the premises of the school. Moreover, such a move would leave a painful impact on the sentiments of the students , alumni , teachers and the people of Kanyakumari district. The management of CHSS needs to understand that playgrounds are meant for students to play and the same should not be subject to commercial affiliations. The name Carmel is synonymous with affordable education and fierce budding sportsmen; let the management not tarnish that legacy by yielding to the commercialisation of the school premises. To many Carmel is not just a word , it’s an emotion. The management of CHSS need to consider this petition as a collective request from all the students and alumni and purge the intention of constructing a marriage hall in the school premises. Thank you.
