Educare has two aspects, the worldly and the spiritual. Worldly education brings out the latent knowledge pertaining to the physical world. Spiritual education brings out the inherent divinity in man. So, both worldly and spiritual education are essential, without which the human life has no value.”
The school’s motto itself - Satyam Vada: Always speak the truth, Dharmam Chara: Follow the path of righteous conduct, highlights the school’s commitment towards cultivating a sense of compassion and sensitivity towards one and all by following the righteous path.
The guiding principles of the term Sathya Sai Educare in context of education are:
“Whoever tries to understand the Human Values of Truth, Righteous conduct, Peace, Love and Non-violence properly, who practice these values and propagate them with zeal and sincerity can alone be described as a truly educated person.”
Education in Human Values, which is our strongest prowess, supplements secular education by addition of spiritual inputs. Children are encouraged to understand and imbibe the 5 fundamental human values of Love, Truth, Righteousness, Peace and Non-Violence. To demonstrate and explain the 5 values, we use and implement the 5 techniques of prayers and positive thinking, silent sitting and meditation, devotional group singing, story-telling and group activities during a specific session earmarked for this purpose.
We also ensure that we integrate the fundamental values with all curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. Our focus is on creating an environment that helps students to inculcate the human values in their daily routine and chores as against merely possessing a superficial knowledge of these values.
In addition to the daily academic sessions, we have come up with the following practices to be followed by students to come in touch with their spiritual self and to reinforce their value systems:
It is imperative that the values that are imparted at the school, are reinforced by the family and social environment too. It goes without saying that parents have a crucial role to play in facilitating the same. Our aim is for our students to receive the best of both worlds and become role models for their generation, by implementing the values taught at both, home and school
