Expanding Upon Our Vision
"Our mission at the Bhaktivedanta Swami Gurukula (Hare Krishna School) is to foster the spiritual, intellec-tual, and emotional develop-ment of our students…"
We provide a safe and nurturing environment, where students are recognised as spirit souls, with individual needs.
With a foundation in ancient
Vedic spiritual teachings, which emphasises devotion (Bhakti yoga), and the values of com-passion, cleanliness (of body, mind and soul), dedication and integrity, we encourage students to express themselves though writing, art, song, music, dance, sports and drama.
To ensure the wellbeing of students we implement a proactive behaviour manage-ment program, and offer additional support through the student support chaplan.
"…Centred in the teachings of our founder Srila Prabhupada, and supported by contem-porary and evidence-based teaching methods,…"
We offer a diverse learning environment, with an
emphasis on the NSW curriculum. As part of our teaching philosophy we apply a number of research-based literacy and numeracy programs, and are dedicated to using best instructional practices. For students who are struggling with their literacy, we provide one-on-one targeted intervention support programs.
"…we strive to assist students in reaching their full potential as open-minded, inspirational and thriving contributors to society at large, with a firm foundation in the values of compassion, cleanliness, self-regulation, and integrity."
We aim to provide students with an understanding of their spiritual essence, and the spiritual essence of all other beings. With an emphasis on the idea of service (to the divine, to oneself, to one another, and to the earth) we encourage students to actively be of service to the world at large.
We strive to prepare student for life after school through work experience (High School), through field trips, school camps, and a pilgrimage to India (High School)
In addition we offer individual support to students throughout their schooling. In high school the students are introduced to the Tree of Life program, which aims at providing students with tools for leading a fulfilled spiritual life in the material world.
