SAI SPRIRITUAL EDUCATION (SSE)
The SSE classes for Children focus on the study of Sai Baba’s five human values: Truth, Peace, Love, Right Conduct and Non-Violence. Classes include Mantras, Devotional Singing and Universal prayers from all religions. The classes are fun and interactive and children learn Baba’s teachings, participate in skits and play value games. An important part of the curriculum is Unity in Diversity and children are familiarized with basic principles of the major world religions. Field trips include environmental projects, charity craft projects such as making Valentine cards and Easter egg baskets for underprivileged children and seniors, and trips to various religious sites such as temples, churches, mosques and synagogues.
