Today, the education imparted to our children is almost solely limited to what Sri Ramakrishna characterized as ‘education for bread and butter’. Students are led to believe that by developing the ability to gather, store, and retrieve vast information, they stand educated. But, Swami Vivekananda points out, “Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested all your life. We must have life-building, man-making and character-making assimilation of ideas.”

Mere academic knowledge without deep rooting in moral and spiritual values will only fashion lop-sided personalities who may become rich in material possessions, but will remain poor in self-understanding, peace, and social concern. Emphasizing this fact, Swami Vivekananda said, “Excess of knowledge and power, without holiness, makes human beings devils.”

As an earnest step towards achieving the goal of sensitising and strengthening our children throughout their school days in terms of values such as patriotism, sharing, contribution to the society and tolerance our school imparts Value  Education. This includes a number of programmes that directly expose our children to the fundamental values referred above. The children are particularly exposed to the teachings of great men who have stood for the highest values throughout the centuries.
