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