“Just as two wings are essential for a bird to soar high in the sky, two wheels for a cart to move, so also two types of education are needed for man to attain the goal of life” – Sathya Sai Baba
In common with all the Sathya Sai Schools around the world, the Australian Sai School combines the five Human Values without any compromise of the mainstream syllabus set by the Board of Studies. This “combined education” (also called ‘integral education’) prepares the child both for a rich inner life of joy and harmony with an outer capacity of action. The child develops a strong sense of personal responsibility grounded in an authentic self that is autonomous and yet strongly connected with the family, community and culture of origin. Such a child is better able to chart individual course through life with a well-developed inner compass. The training of the mind and heart that will make the right choices starts right in the kindergarten and the primary school.
The school focuses in bringing out character in children through the integration of human values into the school curriculum. We believe that education should not only promote academic excellence; education needs to incorporate values that promote healthy relationships; a vital component in the life of a child. We believe that the end product of education is character, the most valuable asset a person can have. In an atmosphere of love and mutual respect, each child is encouraged to excel and aspire to achieve his or her full potential.
