English Medium High School
MOTHER’S VISION FOR THE SCHOOL
Mother’s Vision is to give Her Indian children a high standard of education in a school managed and structured by western standards and with the help of volunteers.
TEACHING AND MANAGEMENT – structured by Western standards
VOLUNTEERS – help keeping the school running smoothly
A CHILD-CENTERED LEARNING APPROACH, such as Montessori, is envisioned
With Mother’s guidance, our devotion and surrender, Mother’s Vision will continue to manifest. If you are able to spend a month or more in India, this is a wonderful opportunity to work with Mother and Her children. To support Her as She is supporting us.
MOTHER MEERA OPENED AN ORPHANAGE 28 SEP 2007
One day, Mother simply opened the doors of Her private home to shelter children that didn’t have families to support them. She endearingly called them ’ashram kids’. In love and surrender two Western devotees committed to the challenging task of caring full-time for these kids, devoting their entire life to support Mother’s Vision.
The ashram kids then had a long way to walk to their local school on dusty and perilous roads, often accompanied by their loving ashram dog, whom Mother named Shivaji. He protected them from stray dogs and harassment. When the trek to the local school became too much of a hardship, Mother simply decided to open Her own school in Her home. Now the ashram kids only need to walk from one building to another on Mother’s protective grounds. They enjoy taking care of their school, they mature and take pride in their duties. For the love of Her ashram kids, and all Her children, Mother is continuously transforming the world.
MOTHER MEERA SCHOOL WAS INAUGURATED 7 JUN 2010
Thus, the orphanage was the humble beginning for Mother’s family of schools which now is a temple of learning for over 1000 students.
Construction and development of the School has arisen out of Mother’s Vision. Mother, together with devoted western volunteers worked hard to bring it to fruition.
A seed planted carefully, well watered and cared for, now has matured into a tree with countless fruits and seedlings. It provides shade, comfort, education and hope for a multitude of Indian children as they ripen under Mother’s inspiring rays of Divine Grace and Love. The Mother Meera School is a group of schools in and around Madanapalle, India, consisting of Mother Meera English Medium High School and several Mother Meera Play Homes. A small home for the ashram kids and volunteer accommodations are part of the main school’s campus.
Classes range from Baby Class to 10th Standard (3-16 years)
More than 1000 students are registered at the main school.
The main school has 48 classrooms, including Computer and Audio Visual rooms, a Science Lab, rooms with digital teaching aids, and a Library. It also has WiFi.
About 100 people are employed in Mother’s schools.
Along with the academic education, many periods of prayer and silent meditation are merged into the daily school routine: before school begin; at breaks and lunch time; before and after classes; and in the afternoon. Local religions are beautifully reflected in the School’s students and teachers, all united peacefully under Mother Meera’s protective umbrella. The Western volunteers add yet another dimension, making THE MOTHER MEERA SCHOOL AN INTERNATIONAL ADVENTURE INTO THE SELF.
