School Motto, Emblem, Badges and House System

BADGES:

AVM Group of Schools subscribe to inculcating values that will help our Students grow up to be responsible members of the society, in order to install this spirit in them we have recommended our students to wear the following badges daily as per the prescribed schedule:

Please note the order in which the theme badges have to be worn weekly:

1. Togetherness

2. Peace

3. Be Indian

4. Environment

5. Joy

We believe that:

Joy is the one of the most important emotions in the life of our students so that they have a happy and satisfying feeling while they are in school.

Peace is important for the youth of tomorrow to realize the value of maintaining peace and harmony around themselves so that they grow up to create a world free from disharmony and disturbance.

Be Indian is important for our students to realize and understand that being Indian is about devotion to one’s own country and showing concern for its defence.

Environment is important that with the harmful effects of global warming and climate change,it is absolutely imperative for young minds to understand their responsibility in taking care of the environment and preserving the natural resources.

Togetherness is important to develop in our students the value of this feeling of togetherness, as members of a large global family.

THE HOUSE SYSTEM

One main objectives of the House System is to foster in the student a sense of collective responsibility and solidarity at the same time kindling and developing the social qualities latent in every student though healthy competitions among the four houses in GK., Debating, Sports etc.

Each House is headed by a House Mistress / House Master (a teacher), a Prefect and a Vice-Prefect (Students).

The system of prefect body, managing the four houses, helps to develop a spirit of team work, co-ordination and inculcates a sense of responsibility.

From the galaxy of our ancient sages we have chosen the four houses patrons viz. Patanjali, Dronacharya, Ved Vyas and Chanakya as they were origanal thinkers in various fields like Yoga, Art of Military Science, Philosophy, State- Craft and Economics.

Members of each of these Houses are inspired to follow the precepts of these great ‘Mahants’ which are epitomised in the following words.

Patanjali – Purity of mind

Dronacharya – Steadfastness

Ved Vyas – Generosity and Humanity

Chanakya – Perseverance
