Education

The children of Gokulam – Bhaktivedanta Children’s Home are given a complete education, with special attention given to each child’s needs. Eight teachers work with the students at the Bhaktivedanta International School located within the orphanage. Classes include English, mathematics, science, health, physical education, art, computer skills, classical dance, music, and crafts. The children also participate in games, public speaking, sewing, dramas and other fun activities. Courses are taught in Sinhala, Tamil and English, giving students an exceptionally comprehensive background.

The school currently has five computers, with qualified teachers holding classes for students age six and older.

Each child is placed in a class according to their skill level, and curriculum is based on current standards of education as established by the International Schools Services.

Education would not be complete without field trips, so the children go on picnics, to temples, and to notable places of interest such as Kandy on a regular basis.

In the future, the Bhaktivedanta International School will expand to include the following resources:

  • An Information Technology center with the latest software
  • A laboratory equipped with science and technology supplies
  • Television and audio-visual aids in each classroom
  • An auditorium for performing arts
  • A new playground
