Education in Human Values

Education in Human Values supplements secular education by addition of spiritual inputs. Children are encouraged to understand and imbibe 5 fundamental human values ie. Love, Truth, Righteousness, Peace and Non-Violence.

We use 5 techniques Prayer & positive thinking, meditation, group devotional music, story telling and group activities in the period earmarked for this purpose. We make an effort to integrate value inputs in curricular, co-curricular and extra -curricular activities. Our focus is on practicing these values rather than, knowing about the values.


Besides regular daily 20 minutes period for every class, there are other processes to reinforce the value system among students :

  1. Guided visualization is a common practice once a week in Bal Mandir. Mass meditation & bhajan singing, where all the students of the main school gather, are done once a week.
  2. Students of class VIII go to Puttaparthi to witness excellence in Sports meet there, around Makar Sankranti, every year for a period of ten days and participate there in various activities that strengthen their spiritual foundation.
  3. A seven day residential camp is organized from 2nd to 9th May every year to impart the knowledge of ancient Indian Culture, understanding of different religions and teachings of great scholars. It is advisable for every student to attend this camp at least once in school life. It is compulsory for all students of class XI who have not attended any camp, to attend the current camp. Normally it is recommended that students of class VIII should attend this program. Those who join class XI after the summer camp have to attend this camp in class XII.
  4. Students of class XI visit Puttaparthi during summer holidays. These visits supplement our value education program and form a compulsory component of curriculum.
  5. In order to experience the values in action, every student from class V onwards is expected to do at least 40 hours (40 Credit Points) of community service. A score card has been given to every student. Whenever he/she does some good\deed like helping poor, Narayan Seva, Jal Seva, visiting orphanages, old homes, hospitals of critically ill, teaching students etc., makes an entry in this card. This card is collected by school once in six months and results are recorded in non-academic performance evaluation from time to time. School organizes community service projects from time to time. Students can participate in these projects. Additionally, they can do at their own, to reach 40 credit points level. Any backlog in one year is carried forward to next year.

It is essential that values being imparted at the school are reinforced by the family and social environment and parents have to play an important role in facilitating the same. It is expected that parents will conduct themselves in a manner that they is able to become true role models for their child. Wherever, this is not possible, they are expected to at least make sure that these values are not contradicted at home because this confuses the child.
