Jai Sai Ram
It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce that we have started our virtual SSE classes following the great response we have had from our recent audio SSE classes taking place from the last few weeks.
Please provide us your feedback on your experience so far and how we can improve this better and we would love to hear from you.
If you would like to join your child’s virtual class, please feel free to send us an email and we can get you started quickly. We are hopeful this will help all children and the entire Sai family to keep connected spiritually and will have a positive impact during these tough times.
These are extraordinary times which demand extraordinary measures, and we the gurus of SSE are wholeheartedly committed to sustaining our children’s educare and spiritual learning, as the best we can. We, the Gurus team are ourselves going through loads of training sessions on how we can improve from our end and conduct these classes in the most creative and interactive way as possible. Our ability to do this will naturally be influenced by the health of the SSE teams themselves and of our families too. We are also learning as we go along and making changes to provide the best. We are sure you’ll be able to support us as we will work together as one big Sai Family.
“Unless Knowledge is transformed into wisdom, And wisdom is expressed in character, Education is a wasteful process. If education confers this gift of transformation, Then life will become peaceful, happy and Full of mutual help and co-operation. “
Educational activities include the teaching and practice of the five universal Human Values: Truth, Right Conduct, Peace, Love and Non-Violence.
Objectives of SSE
Sai Spiritual Education (SSE)is the primary basis of the great movement to restore righteousness in the world.
The aim is to guide and mould children from an early age, so they acquire and practice the right values in life, and learn to live with discipline and simplicity.
SSE Classes start for a child under the age of 4 years in our Playgroup class where in the children sit in with their parents, grand parent or guardian. The children then move onto a classroom set up which is our Nursery (Age 4-6 years). They then move on to Group 1 (Age 6-9 years), followed by Group 2 (Age 9-12) and finally complete the course at the age of 15 in Group 3 (Age 12-15).
Then they can progress to Group 4 which was previously known as LOTUSS [Life’s opportunity to Understand Self and Spirituality] program which is for young teenagers aged 15 to 18 years old.
Apart from having normal lessons, the children also take part in extra activities. They are: Workshops, Study Circles, Library, Assembly, SSE Bhajans, Rehearsals for Celebrations, Fun Days, Sports Day, Service Activities
