Our human education programme teaches a set of five interrelated values: truth, love, peace, right conduct and non-violence that are universal and inherent in the human personality and therefore shared by all of humanity. These values are experienced, recognised and explored in the class so that our students can use them in their everyday lives to help them live a happier, healthier and purposeful life.
