Bal Vikas
The Sanskrit word “Balvikas” means “blossoming of the child”.

Classes

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. 
These classes are completely Free and all teachers teach on voluntary basis.   

Aims

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.

Syllabus

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.

Methodology

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.     

Rules for children

  1. Discipline should be adhered at all times.
  1. Respect all Teachers and obey them.
  1. Treat all children equally (no finger pointing or telling others what to do).
  1. Dress code - White top / shirt / t-shirt.
  1. Regular attendance is vital.

Rules for parents 

1.       Parents have to inform the Head of Balvikas in advance about any absences.  Any missed work should be copied by the child ASAP. 

2.   Parents have to ensure that their children bring books / folders / pens etc. 

3.   In order to encourage self- dependence & confidence in children, parents will drop off & pick-up their children from the main door of the community hall.  Parents will not be allowed to join any classes. 

4.   Parents are encouraged to ask their children what they have learnt in the Balvikas session and make sure that any given homework is completed by their child/ children.
