Welcome to Visishta – The Unique Play School
Baghawat Ramanuja , the revolutionary saint propagated equality in society. Sri Ramanuja was ready to go to hell if the society gets the salvation by knowing the “ Thirumanthra”. He prostrated before Lord Sri Rangnatha and taken a boon which is an assurance for all his followers and set the path of “saranagathi” for salvation and attain HIS lotus feet. His vision to see the entire universe as belonging to Lord Vishnu and “ Vasudeva Kudumpakam”.
His Philosophy of “Visishtadwaita” bears in its name “Visishta” meaning unique, united,, distinguished, excellence, respectable, definite and specific. Hence the name “VISISHTA” to our venture which is perceived to be the “The Unique School’.
Our school is the first step towards realizing our dream of bringing up a unique school to nurture “Confidence Competence Character” in children at the mould-able age. It has been observed by educationists time and again that the creativity and uniqueness of children are not supported by the present educational systems as they grow into secondary and senior levels. Education becomes more of a rigid mould in which all the children of different categories are cast. Therefore, we tend to create replicated patterns rather than unique human beings. The school is intended to be a step towards preserving an nurturing the creativity and originality of children as they grow into the secondary education. The children should bloom into responsible citizens and reverence to our rich and varied India culture and heritage.
The green ring represents the learning spiral and growth. The fingerprint in the centre stands for the unique characteristic in every individual. Hence the name “Visishta” The Unique School. The yellow to orange radiance from the unique individual emerges out as the knowledge and enlightenment of the individual. The Competent individual steps out into the outside world with confidence and character.
Gu-shabthasthu andhakarosthi Ru-shabdasthu thannivarthanam
Meaning: Guru is the one who takes us to light from darkness.
Thus, the mascot chosen for Visishta is GURU and is depicted as a bird since a guru is described in Vaishnava philosophy as a bird having wings of Gyana and Anushtanam meaning he possesses great knowledge and Good practices. The picture of Guru is an artist impression of a bird which is unique in color and features.
The vision on the school is to bring forth a vibrant and committed learning community in pursuit of knowledge truth and excellence, sustained by strong principles and values which promote responsible citizens who are instrumental in bringing about social transformation.
Mission of the playschool is to prepare youngsters to face challenges of life with courage, confidence, and commitment, to promote an educated society in which each one is an important component towards high-quality growth, sensitive to the society around them supported by a strong base of principles and values.
