“What do we lose by another’s good fortune? Let us celebrate them, or try to emulate them, that should be our desire and determination.” - Sri Sathya Sai Baba
Sathya Sai School considers recognition of students’ achievements as the foundation to construct a sense of themselves as successful. Achievements also provide a tangible evidence of our students’ hard work, discipline, and awareness of the importance of values and character. Every year, from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8, they receive awards that recognize their personal as well as academic growth. In the last week of June, a special assembly is held to acknowledge the dedication and determination of our students to uphold the vision and goals of Sathya Sai School.
The following two most coveted awards given in each grade represent the two wings of Human Excellence, i.e. Character and Academics.
M.O.D.E.L3 Award is given to a student in each grade who exemplifies the five Human Values through their Thoughts, Words and Actions. The acronym M.O.D.E.L3 stands for Motivated, Organized, Disciplined, Exemplary, Loving: 1) Love for God 2) Love for Learning 3) Love for Humanity and Nature.
