Genesis and Inspiration
The Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School was inspired and initiated by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba Himself. He is its life and soul, motivation and goal. Under His direct guidance and loving care the school embarked on its mission of moulding young minds on the 15th of June, 1981.
"Character Development with Academic Excellence", has been the governing principle of all endeavours in the school. The school at every step, big or small, is guided by the comprehensive educational philosophy of Bhagawan Baba who emphatically advocates "Education should be for life; not for mere living".
The relentless pursuit of the school has been:
To lay the foundation of a noble character in the young minds by instilling in them the eternal and universal values of brotherhood, patriotism, sacrifice and moral integrity so that they grow up as ideal leaders who can shape the destiny of the nation and the world.
True education should produce balanced personality in whom intellectual, emotional and spiritual values are harmoniously developed. Therefore, all the learning programmes in the school are structured to inculcate in the learners the qualities of:
- Self-confidence with faith in God.
- Academic excellence.
- Communication and social skills along with analytical abilities.
- Maintenance of a well-nourished, healthy and agile physique.
- Inculcating an affinity towards a disciplined and regulated life.
- Instilling the value of selfless service to the society.
- Harmonising positive thoughts, words and actions.
- Respect and regard towards Indian culture and way of life.
- Upholding reverence for parents, elders and dignity of all men.
