Annie Besant School run by Besant Education Fellowship is located in the heart of the city of Varanasi at Kamachha. The school was founded in 1952 as Shishu Vihar. In 2005 Shishu Vihar and Annie Besant Primary School were merged and renamed as Annie Besant School. It was upgraded in 2015. Now the students from Class Prep to Class VIII are getting value based education in a beautiful ambiance of the Theosophical Society Indian Section Kamachha.
Now a days subject learning has become more important than education for life. The civilization is moving at a breakneck speed, but off the track. How pathetically true and apt is the statement in the context of present world situation.
The whole world is running in the blind race for achieving material affiances and success but this outward achievement is creating a vacuum in the inner self. It is high time now that we asked ourselves this burning question where we are heading towards? What do we want to achieve? What is our ultimate aim? What is the difference between literacy and education?
We organise cultural activities, sports activities, science model-smart city model, festival celebrations of all religions etc.
Dr. Annie Besant was woman of exceptional vision phenomenal energy great organizational ability, utter selflessness, and the capacity to inspire men and women to live up to the best in themselves. She was born on 1st October 1847. Her service to humanity were of so varied a nature, so brilliant, that people have remembered that other persons would have needed several lives to accomplish what she did in one life.
She came to India in 1893. In 1895 she settled in Banaras and lived a austere life. One of the first step she had taken to give right kind of education to the young an education which would restore self respect. The stress was on character, on social reform, on broad mindedness and national service.
Besants’ vision of education was a blend of ancient moral and spiritual truths and knowledge of modern science and technology so to make students successful both materially and spiritually.
Best School for children education, environment is so cool and pleasant.
