Under this head, the child is given a wide exposure to the various aspects of our rich culture, culture awareness and appreciation of the vast literary, artistic and scientific heritage of our country, explanations of our customs and traditions.
This vital area of focus includes education in citizenship, civic consciousness, fostering pride in being Indian and vital national concerns such as unity in diversity. Patriotism is inculcated in children with the aim of creating dedicated and committed citizens who take real pride in serving the nation.
Universal outlook refers to an appreciation, sensitivity and commitment to universal issues. A universal outlook helps the child to view himself/herself as a responsible citizen of the world, live in harmony with creation as well as become aware of being an intrinsic part of the macrocosm.
