"Developing creative expressions through play and learn method."

Gurushishya Parampara

Gu" means dark and "Ru" means light. So, "Guru" can be roughly translated as darkness to light, or possibly one who leads from darkness to light. The Guru is a teacher who guides the Shishya's (student’s) life or a spiritual mentor who leads the shishya from blindness or ignorance to bliss, wisdom, and enlightenment.
The Guru-Shishya parampara has been an inevitable part of education in ancient Indian culture. This involved the tradition of a living and learning relationship between the Guru and the Student (Shishya), signifying the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual bonding between them.
This strong bond between the Guru and the Shishya enables the Guru to become a mentor who leads the Shishya from ignorance to wisdom, and enlightenment. Guru-Shishya proximity thus is not only a part of our social order, but also a milestone in the life of a human being in society. The living science of education i.e. Bio Psycho-Psychic Science in our culture, has been long lost due to ignorance of the people in this era of modernization. The revival of this spirit and its practice in the field of education at all levels is the urgent need of the hour. MAEER strongly believes in the virtues of the Guru-Shishya parampara and has nurtured a dream of molding future citizens by equipping them with the latest instructional technology in the ambience of the Gurukul System.
This is the sole aim of establishing the project of Vishwashanti Gurukul, which is akin to an ashram on the beautiful banks of the Mula-Mutha river. Here, immense care has been taken to ensure the emotional, intellectual and spiritual interaction between the students (shishyas) and their respected and revered Guru.
A unique blend of the ancient Indian Guru-Shishya Parampara with the modern methodology of instruction amongst the state of the art infrastructure is the essence of Gurukul.

Learning at Gurukul

One of the objectives of education is to inculcate in children, the appreciation of beauty and to help them develop a sense of aesthetics. A lot of emphasis is placed on the Fine as well as the Performing Arts. In primary school, compulsory exposure is given to art and craft, music, dance, dramatics etc. In Middle school, each student chooses one or two areas to develop expertise in, and skilled guidance is provided on a regular basis.

Visual Arts
This is a compulsory subject from Nursery to Grade 8. In grade 9 and 10, the students can take up Art and Design as a subject in Group 5 (creative and vocational). In the IBDP level, the students can take up Visual Arts as a subject in Group 6 (Arts). The students are exposed to variety of materials and techniques to create meaningful works of art. Modules are taught using a variety of teaching and learning methods including lectures, workshops, participation in various competitions, exhibitions in the school and in the city, etc. for a holistic growth. The students also appear for the Elementary and Intermediate Drawing grade examinations, conducted by the government of Maharashtra. Also we have recently set up a Paper re-cycling unit to create awareness among the students about re-cycling, which is the need of the hour. This forms a strong basis for the students who want to take up a career option in fields related to Visual Arts, like Fine Art, Architecture and various branches of Design, and also as responsible citizens.

Performing Arts
Performing Arts is offered as a subject up to grade 8, and also as a hobby. The students can opt for any one from the Music and Dance. The Music domain comprises Vocal and Instrumental training. The students can opt for instruments like piano, drums, guitar, violin and Tabla. They can opt for dances like Bharat Natyam, Kathak and Contemporary. They learn singing, playing simple musical instruments and dancing, right from the primary school, helping them to appreciate a mix of Indian and Western music and dance forms. Our final goal is to create well-rounded, thoughtful and independent music makers, dancers, choreographers, etc. The performing arts section is more than experiential, hence we offer opportunities to create, recreate and appreciate satisfying musical and dance expression. The students also appear for examinations in music and dance conducted by Trinity and Gandharva Mahavidyalaya. The students show case their creativity in various in house and city based performances and also in various competitions.

Students are surrounded by classmates who want to go to universities abroad for their higher education.
The classmates are in boarding school because they want to be there. They want to learn. They want to be successful. Most schools are rather selective on academic achievements about who they admit. But Vishwashanti Gurukul harps upon the readiness of a student to work towards excellence, give his/her best and bring laurels to their name and school. Being willing to work hard in class and play hard on the playing field is all part of the college prep package Vishwashanti Gurukul boarding offers.

International curriculum broadens the vision of students
International schools in India strive to create students who are knowledgeable and open-minded enough to be cross culturally aware. An international curriculum enables them to enhance their perception of a world sans boundaries and develop a holistic mindset. Learners at top international schools explore concepts, ideas, and issues that have local and global significance. In so doing, they acquire in-depth knowledge and develop understanding across a broad and balanced range of disciplines.They understand and express ideas and information confidently and creatively in more than one language and work effectively and willingly in collaboration with others.
