Why not create value in every
aspect of a child’s education?

Objectives

  1. Children to become courageous
  2. Children to become compassionate
  3. Children to become wise
  4. Children to become happy

Following concepts will be introduced in order to realize the above objectives.

Primary School

Unity

“The type of unity aspired to is not a mechanical uniformity, imposed or coerced from without. Rather, it is unity that has at its heart respect for the diverse and unique qualities of each individual. Such unity arises, when people ‘treasure each other as unique and irreplaceable individuals, and try to bring out the best in each other.'”

Good Friends

“People affect each other in subtle and complex ways, and it is important to develop the ability to discern the nature of that influence. ‘Bad’ friends are those who encourage our weaknesses. A truly good friend is someone with the compassion and courage to tell us even those things we would prefer not to hear, which we must confront if we are to develop and grow in our lives.”

Gratitude

“Gratitude is the key to unlocking a more open and rewarding perspective on life. Feelings of appreciation are always accompanied by the elevation of one’s state of life and the broadening of one’s perspective. And, the more our life expands, the more profound our sense of gratitude becomes, to the point where we can feel appreciation even for the problems we face in life.”

Creating Value

“We can create value at each moment through our responses to our environment. Depending on our determination and direction, the value created from any given situation can be positive or negative, minimal or infinitely great.”

Tools or methodology to be used:

  • Story telling
  • Games & Simulation
  • Role playing
  • Reading of autobiographies
  • Screening of short films and discussions

“The type of unity aspired to is not a mechanical uniformity, imposed or coerced from without. Rather, it is unity that has at its heart respect for the diverse and unique qualities of each individual. Such unity arises, when people ‘treasure each other as unique and irreplaceable individuals, and try to bring out the best in each other.’

Treasuring Diversity

“‘Its very important to recognise human diversity. The real meaning of humanism comes down to the tenet of treasuring the individual.’ In treasuring human diversity we are not changing ourselves into something which we are not. Rather, it is a matter of bringing forth those positive qualities we already possess.”

Friendship

“People affect each other in subtle and complex ways, and it is important to develop the ability to discern the nature of that influence. ‘Bad’ friends are those who encourage our weaknesses. A truly good friend is someone with the compassion and courage to tell us even those things we would prefer not to hear, which we must confront if we are to develop and grow in our lives.”

Win or lose

“It is only when we push ourselves beyond our limits that our success becomes meaningful to ourselves and respected by others. Living a ‘safe’ existence in which we merely abide by society’s rules is to shirk the bigger challenges involved in living in a way which both maximizes our positive, creative influence and actively tackles those forces which cause suffering and abuse.”

Human Dignity

“Given the mind-boggling number of life-forms that fill the universe, human life is a rare privilege with special responsibilities. Ultimately, human dignity is rooted in the idea that we are able to choose the path of self-perfection.”

Methodology

  • Maintaining diaries
  • Debates
  • Small discussions/ Brain storming
  • Skits/ Small plays
  • Dance drama
  • Reading of autobiographies
  • Screening of films and discussions

Senior Secondary School

Many in body one in mind (unity)

“The type of unity aspired to is not a mechanical uniformity, imposed or coerced from without. Rather, it is unity that has at its heart respect for the diverse and unique qualities of each individual. Such unity arises, when people ‘treasure each other as unique and irreplaceable individuals, and try to bring out the best in each other.’

Interconnectedness

“When we realize the extent of the myriad interconnections which link us to all other life, we realize that our existence only becomes meaningful through interaction with, and in relation to, others.”

Accumulating Treasures of The Heart

“Meaning of accumulating treasures of the heart is one of ardent commitment to  self-development while also seeking to ease the suffering of others and  bring happiness and benefit to them.Thus polishing your character in turn.”

Oneness of Body and Mind

“To understand that life is the unity of the physical and the spiritual. To view all things, whether material or spiritual, seen or unseen, as manifestations of the same source of life. The physical and spiritual aspects of our lives are completely inseparable and of equal importance.”

Peace and Human rights

“If we lack the courage to confront evil acts, or tendencies toward hatred and discrimination, both within ourselves and in society, they will spread unchecked, as history shows. Martin Luther King, Jr., lamented, ‘We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.’

Anger Management

“The key to the transformation of Anger lies in self-mastery-channeling the energy that has formerly been directed toward winning over others into winning over oneself. This begins simply with the humility to respect and admire what is praiseworthy in others.”

Methodology

  1. Class discussion
  2. Brain storming
  3. Small group discussions
  4. Situation analysis and case studies
  5. Plays

We will also use relevant short films and documentary films to make the concepts clear.
