TREP is full of fun and education. It conducts many different activities and programmes for our students to ‘grow and glow‘ in values, devotion and life-skills. Essentially, we are trying to develop the CHARACTER of our students to become value-oriented, service-minded, self-confident, responsible citizens of our country.
Using a simple but effective monetary incentive programme (developed by the TREP) called TIMS we encourage and reward our students to excel in promoting ‘goodness’: sharing, caring, service, helpfulness and co-operation. They also learn the value of money, banking, saving & expenditures.
DAILY ROUTINE: Our TREP programme starts daily at 5:00 in the morning with prayers (which include chanting slokas, namasmarana recitation, Agni Hothra homa, devotional singing and daily spiritual quotes). It is followed with studies then exercise of calisthenics, running or Yoga asanas and Pranayamas. Three times a week a class in EHV (Education in Human Values) helps to lay the foundation for understanding and the practice of human values (like respect, dignity of labour, gratitude, love, compassion, etc). After school our students learn and enjoy various sports (football, shuttle cock, volleyball, basketball, cricket and local games). Then after their bath and snacks we have a group discussion on our daily written quote and often read a chapter from some spiritual text (like Bhagavad Geeta, Mahabaratha, Ramayana, Bible, Buddha’s life story, etc). Evening studies and devotional singing (bhajans) are also part of our daily programme. After dinner our students write Namasmarana before going to bed to ensure a peaceful, restful sleep.
At TREP our students like to document all the important events by taking lots of pictures.
Here are some pictures taken by the students themselves.
Each year our TREP students learn and celebrate the meaning of our various religious festivals including: Gurupoornima, Ganesh Chaturthi, Varamahalakshmi, Krishna Jamastami, Dasara, Deepavali, Id-malad, Ramazan, Hannukkah, Christmas, Sankranthi, Manifestation day, Mahashivarathri, Republic day, Independence day.
