Student’s life modelled on the ancient Gurukula Model
The students are regularly exposed to the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi, and the institution strives to shape its students into fully integrated human beings with a harmonious blend of cognitive, affective and psychomotor skills, combining modern scientific temper with ancient spiritual wisdom. More than the curricula, it is the kind of life students live within the campus, modelled on the ancient ‘ GURUKULA SYSTEM’ and modified to meet contemporary challenges that helps them to imbibe those values which the institution fosters as its mission goal.
In a gurukula model, character formation is through living in close contact with monks and other dedicated teachers and staff. Values are thus caught rather than merely taught. Students are trained in community life, and this is possible because this school makes residential schooling a compulsory feature. Every morning and evening the prayers are conducted in a hall. In the hostel, a self-help system is followed to impart the sense of dignity of labour. Students are involved in campus cleaning etc. Retreats and religious discourses are also conducted periodically. Social service activities are encouraged by involving students in the extension activities of the Vidyalaya.
