Balvikas classes are conducted during
school term time, every Saturday, from 11:00am to 12:00pm in Temple’s Community
Hall. Children from age group of 4yrs to 15 yrs are all welcome. Balvikas
classes are divided into 3 groups. Children will be divided into appropriate
groups according to their age and ability.
The main aim of the Balvikas is to foster character development, knowledge of Hinduism, discipline and cultivation of humility, respect, core human values & selfless service.
Our syllabus is based on the framework of Shri Satya Sai Balvikas, as taught in India. Weekly lessons are planned by the selected teachers, which are inclusive of shlokas, bhajans, stories and games.
From 2010, Balvikas will introduce exams (before summer school holidays and before Xmas break) and tests before the end of every school term.
The hallmark of Balvikas is that the programme is conducted by teachers who have tremendous commitment, knowledge and faith in God. Active participation of children in bhajan singing, dance & play, during temple’s event will help in boosting their confidence.
