VALUES PLUS PROGRAM

BY NIVE( National Institute of Value Education ) , a division of ISKCON

The school works in collaboration with NIVE, an initiative of ISKCON Bangalore, which has designed a curriculum based on the set of values recommended by the NCERT. The aim of NIVE has been to empower children to be able to decide and make conscious and valued decisions.

The V+ classes are interactive and the mentors of NIVE use well-mapped lesson plans to help students connect to the message within. Students are encouraged to apply it in their own lives, through small activities and initiatives. The program also incorporates Moral teachings through Vedic stories inculcating Indian values and culture.

For Grades IX & X, the programme helps to explore the fact that science and spirituality can coexist and converge to give a cogent worldview that inspires an enlightened and enriched living.

Akshaya Patra School visits by students

“Action speaks louder than words.” The quote stands true in all aspects; whether it is to inculcate good manners in children or to imbibe the good virtues of kindness, sharing and to be thankful for what we have.

In the true spirit of the Gurukul tradition of value based system of learning, the students of classes 6 – 10 were given a hand on experience of doing something for their less fortunate friends by The Akshay Patra Foundation. They were taken to BBMP Government schools within Bangalore, where they served the mid-day meal to the students of the Primary classes, which is provided by the Akshay Patra Programme, in association with ISKCON.

Not only did the children learn a great deal from the experience, but they also enjoyed their interaction and play with their little friends. It was an enriching experience to see these children happy and content with what they have, something we fail in.

The Akshaya Patra Foundation School Visits by Students 2016 -17

Students got the opportunity to visit the mega kitchen at The Akshaya Patra Foundation which serves thousands of children every day. After a tour of the state of the art kitchen, the students along with their teachers and Values Plus team went to the government schools where mid-day meals are provided. There the students learnt the value of humility and compassion, as they got an opportunity to serve lunch to those children. After a happy interaction with the school children, the students reflected their experience of compassion through a collage showing gratitude.

Annual Homas

Special Homas are performed by the students of New Horizon Gurukul under the guidance of priests where the students are taught the rituals and prayers invoking Lord Ganapati, Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Saraswati. This is a special feature of Gurukul wherein every student gets an opportunity to imbibe our great culture and traditions.
