Teachers and Parents as Positive Role Models

The influence of parents on children’s minds is very significant. It is actually the primary and predominant influence on children’s personality and behaviour pattern. If a teacher is dedicated and pure, thousands of children will be improved and the nation will gain from educated men and women of character. If parents and teachers set the right example, the students will automatically blossom into models of excellence.” ~ Sathya Sai Baba

Perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of the SSEHV philosophy is that it expects a tripartite relationship between pupils, parents and teachers. As well as emphasising the need for pupils to learn to value themselves, their parents, their teachers and their peers, this programme also encourages parents and teachers to act as positive role models for their children and pupils respectively.
