Gurukul emphasizes on self-discipline as well as aims to make its students responsible and independent. The senior students are given responsibilities, form a part of the school’s disciplinary committee and are involved in the taking decisions regarding the school and its students.
Students are taken to various industries as field trips with the aim to make Education more interactive as well as interesting. Students understands the concepts taught in classrooms better when they see them for real rather than imagining them. Such as – Parle, Plywood, Paper industries and Agriculture.
Gurukul aims at instilling values of service towards the environment and the less fortunate children of our society, in its students from the very beginning. The school has adopted the Sai Village near Kashipur, where the students are taken from time to time to distribute their old belongings and say a silent prayer of thanks to the Almighty for being fortunate enough to have been born into well to do families; bringing about a sense of humility and selflessness.
The students are active in raising awareness on issues which are a potential threat to our environment – Global Warming, Pollution & Deforestation. The school has taken out rallies, participated in Afforestation Campaigns and promoted the use of paper bags in line with the Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan.
The Gurukul system of education emphasizes on qualities such as ‘simple living’, ‘discipline’, ‘loyalty and dutiful’ and ‘quest for learning’. The objective behind naming the school, ‘Gurukul’ was to impart education using the most modern methods of teaching while laying importance on our culture and values, making it a ‘Temple of Learning’.The logo, the bell was chosen after a lot of thought. Symbolically, the body of the bell represents ‘time’, the tongue of the bell represents ‘Goddess Sarawati’, the Goddess of Learning and the handle represents ‘Prana Shakti’. Since Gurukul emphasizes on ‘time management’ and the ‘importance of knowledge’; the bell represents the school and all the values it stands for.
