The Sekolah Rendah Sathya Sai is a private day school set up by the Sathya Sai Baba Central Council of Malaysia. The school which was established in 2002 is situated in a modest two-storey building at Jalan Puchong, Kuala Lumpur. It provides free primary education to children irrespective of race and religion from the surrounding areas as well as the children from the adjacent Pure Life Society orphanage.
Today it has 180 students and 15 teachers.
The school follows the national KBSR education syllabus and curriculum. The main medium of instruction is Bahasa Malaysia, although the English language is closely supported.
All students sit for the Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) at Year 6. Care is taken to prepare the students for the examinations and at the same time students are encouraged to be creative through stimulating and challenging projects, tasks and activities.
A unique and important feature of the school is that great emphasis is placed on Education in Human Values, which is fully integrated into the school curriculum. The school together with the council also provides special training for the teachers. Excellence in character is stressed upon and must become part of the children’s social development.
Sathya Sai Baba has often said that the primary aim of education is to develop perfect character or human excellence in the child. He has declared that “the end of education is character”.
Sekolah Rendah Sathya Sai is part of a silent and growing revolution to transform education with the primary emphasis on human values. The World Sathya Sai Baba Organisation has established schools, colleges, universities and institutes of higher learning in over 30 countries worldwide.
