My Dear Parents, Teachers and Students
“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all”. These are the words of the Greek philosopher Aristotle. I am proud indeed to say that this is what we at SBV follow.
“Excellence in academics” is our prime concern though sports and games and other extra curricular activities to form an integral part of SBV. We endeavour to give every child who enters the portal of our school, “a holistic education”.
“Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up, with goals so strong that obstacles, failures and loss only act as Motivation”.
We approach our responsibilities with a worldwide perspective instilling creative thinking in students and widening their knowledge, vigilantly safeguarding them against the inroads of all deviations.
SBV prides itself in offering the state of the art facilities for academics, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities paving the way for education for life and not just for the present.
“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel- Socrates”. So let’s keep the flame aglow together!
It is our deep conviction that education needs to be a joyful experience that facilitates the growth and transformation of young minds at their impressionable age and fortifies them with the required knowledge and skills to face challenges of the competitive world. Our vision is to develop students in following:
- The Art of Relationship
- Mastery in Communication
- Clarity of Values
- Passion to make one’s life count
To provide the ambience and atmosphere for an enjoyable, purposeful,meaningful and useful study through value based and practical methods in Sri Bala Vidyalaya.
