Pastoral Care

At CISS, our pastoral care program is intricately woven with the foundational values that define our school community. We believe in cultivating an environment where innocence and wisdom coexist harmoniously. Embracing simplicity, dignity, and joy, we encourage our students to navigate the world with a discerning eye, intuitively distinguishing between right and wrong while acting upon their benevolent awareness.

Compassion and joy are at the core of our values. We instill in our students a profound sensitivity to the needs and feelings of others, fostering friendships (dosti) and a deep spiritual connection to the Self (bhakti). Through the practice of meditation, our students experience inner silence, profound joy, and a sense of oneness, enriching their overall well-being.

Humility and respect are pillars that shape our school culture, too. We teach our students to carry their success and achievements, as well as their failures and shortcomings with lightness, recognizing difference as an opportunity to create harmony. Decorum, dignity in behavior, and a profound respect for the benevolent care and guidance of teachers and elders form the cornerstone of our community.

In fostering introspection and resilience, we guide our students to reflect on their mistakes, learn from them, and embrace challenges as opportunities for growth. Courage and virtue are celebrated virtues, as our students develop a sound understanding of right and wrong (dharma) and embody integrity, honesty, and a commitment to justice (imandari).

Generosity and collaboration are woven into the fabric of our community. We encourage students to find opportunities to express love and joy, forgive the faults of others, and master the art of diplomacy. Our students stand up for themselves without aggression or domination, promoting a culture of understanding and collaboration.

In essence, our pastoral care program reflects the holistic values that define CISS, ensuring that every student not only receives academic excellence but also blossoms into a compassionate, resilient, and balanced individual prepared to navigate the complexities of life with grace and wisdom.
