MANIFESTATION OF INDIAN RULES & TRADITION IN A MODERN
Situated alongside the majestic Ganges
amidst the verdant environs of Chandannagar, Ganges Gurukul
offers a unique experience in education. The school aims at
academic excellence integrated with a firm grounding in Indian
culture and tradition. When Indian education in the third
millennium is veering away from the riches of an Indian cultural
ethos Ganges Gurukul endeavours to rejuvenate the harmonious
personal relationship between the 'guru' and the "shishya'.
the Vedic Age of Indian History a child left the abode of his
parents after the 'Upanayana Sanskar' or sacred Thread
Ceremony'. Thereafter he resided in the house of his preceptor, a
house that became his school. In the Gurukul System the 'shishya'
implicitly obeyed his guru's commands and treated him with divine
reverence. He studied the "vedas', committed it to
rote by a special method and performed daily devotions. Every
effort was made to keep alive the child's natural curiosity for
new knowledge and learning. A close 'guru-shishya' rapport
ensued and the 'shishya' learnt as much by example as by
Ganges Gurukul strictly adheres to the ancient 'gurukul'
system in letter and in spirit. The school prides itself in
teaching through joyous participation in individual and group
activities leading to the shishya's pride in accomplishment. As a
preparation for life the 'shishya' develops the habit of
co-operation, service, social sensitivity humility and altruism.
school takes immense pride in upholding a tradition of excellence
in education taking special care of slow learners and under
achievers. It ensures that the child is not left to fend for
himself, overburdened with cumbersome and non-reflective homework.
At Ganges Gurukul we celebrate harmonious community living in
consonance with the manners and mores of Indian culture and
tradition. The aesthetic, affective and co-curricular activities
of the school facilitate the all round development of the child
generating social and intellectual compatibility
