fulfilling the school philosophy of promoting moral character, intellectual ingenuity, and global citizenship.

About Gurukula

Gurukula (Sanskrit: गुरुकुल or Gurukul) was a type of residential schooling system in ancient India with shishya (students) living near or with the guru, in the same house. The guru-shishya tradition is a sacred one in Hinduism and appears in other religious groups in India, such as Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism. The word gurukula is a combination of the sanskrit words guru (teacher or master) and kula (family or home).Before the British rule, they served as South Asia's primary educational system. In a Gurukul, the students living together are considered as equals, irrespective of their social standing.They learn from the guru and help the guru in his everyday life, including carrying out of mundane daily household chores. However, some scholars suggest that the activities are not mundane and very essential part of the education to inculcate self-discipline among students.

Vision

To ignite and empower young minds and from a community of lifelong learners and doers, with infallible values of integrity and compassion.At the end of one's education, a shishya offers the guru dakshina before leaving the gurukula.[3][4] The gurudakshina is a traditional gesture of acknowledgment, respect and thanks to the guru.

Values Action

At Gurukul, we believe that the best education is one: that inspires children with the desire to explore and learn; one that suggests, rather than preaches where children are encouraged to become both independent and interdependent learners, with a strong spirit for collaboration which creates a stress-free environment.
