New Avanti Schools

Friday, August 24th, 2012

We are looking for families with children under the age of 18, or those who are expecting to have children in the near future.

Avanti Schools Trust is considering applying for new Hindu faith schools in several locations to open in 2014.

The schools facilitate children from all backgrounds and abilities on a journey of self-discovery. Our ethos is moulded around a unique personalised approach to learning, with the long-term happiness and fulfilment of the child at the heart of everything that we do. The schools have structured approaches to learning and questioning skills and a clear sense of the sets of knowledge and understanding that are central to informed, articulate and confident citizens.

We promote holistic, responsible lifestyles through a vegetarian diet, a curriculum that integrates yoga and meditation and a built environment that actively fosters environmental concern. Pupils are nurtured and cared for in a way that builds the foundation for their high academic achievement, exemplary character and wholesome sense of identity, set within an open and inclusive school.

By filling out a short questionnaire you will allow us to gather the information needed to demonstrate demand for such schools in your community.

“Will you be a winner?”

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Over 100 Students attended the “2012: Will you be a winner?” University Retreat on a bright and sunny February day!

The KC Soc group comprises over 20 Universities and top schools across the country – and are growing!!

At the ‘2012’ Olympic styled Retreat in February, students from as far as Plymouth, Southampton, Coventry, Aston, Birmingham, DMU, Cambridge, Leicester, Portsmouth and the more local UCL, City, QMUL, Brunel, Kings, SOAS, WBGS, QE Boys, to name but a few, all managed to beat morning blues with the view to ‘be a winner in 2012!

The action packed day included <in order!>, an introduction to the beautiful Deities that reside at Bhaktivedanta Manor, ‘Power Yoga’, multimedia presentation on the Honourable Warrior (A insight into Bhagavad Gita!), ‘Mooooooo’ – milking and feeding cows! Veggie Steady Cook had all students competitively flip pancakes and create unique filling.

After a yummy lunch there was an action packed and energy fuelled workshop: ‘Mind Games 2012’ which included challenging fun team based activity out on the Lawn! The final Mantra session had everyone on their feet dancing the evening away, voted the BEST activity by over 95% of students!

People from all backgrounds and walks of life come to KC Socs to learn about the Vedic philosophy and culture of ancient India. The sessions prove to be exciting and inspiring for everyone that comes along.

Presidents of the societies are considered to be true ‘Spiritual Warriors’ and leaders-in-training.  Not only do they juggle their studies, exams, part-time work, family and social obligations, but they all make time to organise weekly sessions, special events, festivals and retreats as well. We would like to take the opportunity to thank every single one of them for their tireless and dynamic efforts in the last term and we look forward to working with them in the next one.  Thank you to all those involved!
