SOMAIYA VIDYA MANDIR LAXMIWADI is a symbol of progressive and quality education. Our motto is: ज्ञानादेव तु कैवल्यम् । Knowledge alone liberates. Liberates from poverty, from hunger. Also to liberate one from the attachments that bind us to small-mindedness. Knowledge also provides opportunity. To make the life lived more meaningful. In the service of one’s family, one’s community, one’s समाज, country and indeed the world. Bearing in mind that there is no religion other than the life lived in the service of humanity. न मानुषात् परो धर्म:। We will strive to provide access and opportunity to build a more inclusive society.
Mahatma Gandhi said, “True education must correspond to the surrounding circumstances or it is not a healthy growth”. In our school, children will gain an all-round education and achieve their potential not just in the academic field but also in the field of sports and creative arts.
Our school is scaling new heights with excellent and reputed professional training our children in a range of co-curricular activities like Kho-Kho, Kabaddi, Volleyball, Cricket, Badminton and many more indoor and outdoor games.
Most importantly, at the school, we are a team of dedicated teachers and staff, committed to the welfare of the children in our care. For us teaching is a passion. The importance of instilling good values in our students is our prime objective, so we try to hone the talents of our children in a manner that they reach up to their optimal potential.
In the process they acquire skills necessary to build as well-rounded a personality as possible. We are fortunate to enlist a team of committed and passionate teachers who nurture our students on this path.
We encourage questioning as we want them to be agile in their thinking. We stroke their spirit of discovery and enquiry. As Einstein remarked – ‘Education is not so much the feeding of facts into the mind as awaking of curiosity in the soul’. We want our students to be lifelong learners.
Our aim, importantly, is to make education a fun-filled, enjoyable, learning and growing experience on the solid foundation of values. We believe it is important to create an environment where students look eagerly forward to come to school. We want them to have fond memories of their time spent with us, long after they have left the portals of the school.
