Newcastle Sai Centre - Formal Education 

Sathya Sai Education in Human Values (SSEHV)

The SSEHV work in Newcastle has been in progress since 2004 and the SSEHV resources and their programmes are recognized by the Newcastle Education Department. With the approval of the Education Department, a half day training event took place in 2004. Since then, a number of schools have received the initial introduction and have been implementing the program me.

In October 2007, about nine centre members successfully completed the SSEHV Foundation Course. Several members will also proceed to undertake an OCN (Open College Network) course which is accredited by the Open University.

 

SSEHV Day in June at Newcastle (article from Love & Light Newsletter July 2009 issue)

Two schools in Newcastle have adopted the Sathya Sai Education in Human Values programme for the last three years. One of these schools held a human values event on the 19th of June for the whole afternoon. The parents were invited to the event and they turned out in good numbers. The programme was attended by Mr. Rob Alderman and Mrs. Carole Alderman from BISSE, Mr. Neil Bisarya (Region 5 SSEHV Co-coordinator) and Mrs. Madhavi Majmudhar from Newcastle.

The PSCHE ( Physical, Social, Community, Health and Education  classes ) co-coordinator in her introduction told the parents, “Your children receive education in this school. Children do not just need the reading and writing skills but they also need good values in their life to have good habits and good manners. For this reason, we have adopted the Sathya Sai Education in Human Values programme in our school for the last three years. This is a non-religious programme. Children will show today what they have learnt,”

There was a display of children’s drawings on human values from each class and prizes were awarded for the best pictures in each class. Each child participated in the event and certificate for participation was given to each child. Children from foundation stage to year 6 presented songs, role-play, dance and  poem. The programme was a huge success.”

The SSEHV team hopes to extend its work in future to include SSEHV after school club and related work in community.
