AIMS OF THE HINDUISM MOVEMENT IN SCHOOLS

  Focus attention on the need to integrate our educational system, making it complete, not merely functional, job-oriented, and thereby fulfil a need longfelt by thinking Mauritians;

  Make youth aware of the rich heritage of Hinduism and thereby satisfy the aspirations of parents and others concerned;

  Give teachers the opportunity to play the role they are eager and expected to play as "dispellers of darkness";

  Lead to the promotion of effective religious understanding in the school, and thus

  Help in the flowering of the Mauritian personality, giving it the soul it badly needs, and making our country a real model to the world.

HOW IMPLEMENTED AT PRESENT

  Three Seminars on HSC Hinduism every year at Curepipe and Goodlands for the benefit of students.

Various competitions on Hinduism with finals on Hinduism Day every year.

Meanwhile the 1995 winner Rajshree Beneymadoo has just come back after brilliant studies in Indian Philosophy at Banaras Hindu University. We wish her all the best in her career.
