SSEHV not only equips students with the knowledge and skills they will need for living, it prepares them for life.


The SSEHV pedagogy is experiential, transformational and integral. This is possible thanks to five basic teaching techniques, which embrace body, mind and soul. They are:

Silent sitting

Story telling

Quotes and Prayers

Group Singing

Group Activities


  • Silent Sitting, known also as “Tuning in”, develops the capacity for concentration, intuition, creativity and quietude. It turns the mind within and enables children to connect to their true divine nature.
  • Story telling captures the imagination, engaging the intellect in a dynamic process of transformation. It provides models of human behaviour, faith and wisdom.

  • The use of quotes, popular sayings and universal prayers is uplifting and inspiring for children. It stimulates good thinking and fosters personal reflection and common sense.

  • Music speaks the language of the heart. It transcends the artificial barriers of social diversity and creates unity. Group singing opens the heart and promotes cooperation, harmony and joy.

  • Group activities are a means to put human values into practice. This creates unity in thoughts, words and deeds, and builds a wholesome and integral personality.


By integrating Human Values into the normal school curriculum through an articulated pattern of lesson plans or and by developing extracurricular activities in which the values stand out, SSEHV familiarises children from their early years of schooling with the sense and meaning of Human Values and the importance of living up to them day by day. This results in the blossoming of a harmonious character, in which head, heart and hands work in accord, revealing a deep unity within oneself.

There is a key to reach this state of inner unity. A key that all children and young people have in their hands and can learn to use by simply turning it inwards. In order to do so, they have to acknowledge the role of the heart, and to abide by its loving counsel, fostering purity, integrity and self-confidence. When the heart or conscience approves our thoughts and the intentions behind them, we act with virtue, determination and courage. When our practice of “turning this key” is done repeatedly, as we search for what is right and what is wrong, it becomes engrained in our subconscious and builds a habit, which finally creates a good character.
