"Education is the manifestation of the perfection, latent in man".

Education is not only a means of guiding young intellectuals onto the path of success, but also the doorway which leads to the blossoming of a young individual’s identity. I feel immense pride as I say that our school has been involved in this supreme endeavour during the last ten years, successfully blending academics with the cultural and athletic skills of the students.

Jnanadeepa School, Javalli, a unit of Jnanadeepa Vidya Samste, was founded on 16th June 1999, by Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Education (SAFE), Shimoga. The school aims at its primary objective of nurturing local talent and providing complete education to the students of the Malnad region, thereby providing an ideal atmosphere for achieving excellence in every walk of life. Our school, affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi, creates opportunities for students to even appear for competitive courses like the IIT and NDA, and later on get trained to take up All India Civil Service Examinations like IAS, IPS etc.

By striking a perfect balance between the physical, mental, moral and spiritual faculties, we assure the parents that their children are in SAFE hands. In order to simplify the teaching-learning process, all possible facilities are provided to the students including an advanced English language lab, a well-equipped Computer lab, a unique and demonstrative Mathematics lab, three well-maintained Science labs, a full-fledged library with over 10,000 volumes and a Multi-media Resourse Center with hi-tech gadgets. To polish the co-curricular abilites and talents of the students, special training is provided to them in Bharatanatyam, Drawing, Music, Dramatics, Karate, Bandset and Meditation by trained experts. To adequately enhance the sporting talents in the school, a sports specialization programme has been introduced, which brings out the champions hidden in the young athletes. The programme has achieved impressive results; as over 250 students of our school have played at the National level in different events, which fact goes on to suggest that one in every seven students of our school is a player at the National level. Whether it be the fifth consecutive victory in the South Zone Handball tournament or the consistent excellence in chess, our students are second to none in their sporting abilities.

Since our students are our treasure, we take utmost care to maintain them in good health by conducting annual health check-ups in the school. Skilled and experienced pediatricians provide their assistance to this programme and the health records are maintained as long as every student is a part of the institution. Other special programmes like the Eco-Club and Honour’s Club, form an integral part of the school agenda. The Green Earth Eco-Club aims at a clean, green and serene environment and the school takes active steps to instill this caring attitude towards nature in the students, through informative activities based on topics like afforestation, rain water harvesting, global warming etc. The Honour’s Club recognizes, appreciates and encourages those students, who with their sheer hard-work and determination, consistently excel in academics. The school also provides the students with a mini-democratic government, wherein the school administrative body is chosen by every student citizen. A student parliament is elected every year as per the Indian electoral system and the eight elected members handle the execution of the school policies.

Travel and exploration are the best and most practical means of gaining knowledge. Keeping this fact in mind, every year the school arranges special educative trips and excursions for the young curious minds. The students of Std V are taken to the Nature Study Camp of 2 days and 1 night duration, which is spent entirely in a thick forest, providing the students with a thrilling trekking experience, that lasts for a lifetime. Educational Excursions are also arranged to different places in and out of the country for the benefit of our students. For the primary school students a trip is organized at the local level, whereas the students of Higher Primary are taken to important places of historical and tourist interest in and around Karnataka, spreading to its adjacent states. A more extensive excursion is conducted every year for the students of high school, wherein they travel to all nooks and corners of the country and even experience the unique opportunity of visiting neighbouring countries.

Our institution has always maintained the highest regard for the supreme purpose of education as mentioned in its motto: “Sa Vidya Ya Vimuktaye”, which means, “That which leads to liberation is education”. We celebrate every regional, national and international festival in the campus, in order to spread the sense of oneness among the children; and occasionally conduct rallies and camps on topics such as Communal Harmony, Blood donation, Aids awareness etc., which help to instill human values and social awareness in our students. Every possible effort is taken to send out into the country, young, vibrant and responsible citizens, who can blend material success and fame with spiritual wholeness and personal integrity. The expectations of the parents maybe high, but the school authorities and the staff members constantly strive to bring their dreams into the light of reality. Ours is a growing institution completely dedicated to the cause of Education and improving educational standards. By the committed work of all our young staff members, the constant support of the parents and authorities, and above all by the grace of God, our school shall achieve much greater heights in the coming years.
