The school teaching programme developed by SVPS, Betul, has classes which are interactive and spontaneity is actively encouraged. Thus hands-on activity is seamlessly woven with extensive and focused exercises for reinforcement. The objective is to approach knowledge from a holistic development style, which ensures that the student actively participates in the learning process. Sports with multi-faceted co-curricular activities are woven into the daily school schedule, to ensure that a healthy body nourishes an active mind.
For the students of Grades 1 and above, the school begins at 8:50 a.m. and finishes at 4:00 p.m. For students in the early learning programme (KG and Montessori), the school beings at 10:00 a.m. and finishes at 3:00 p.m. All students are expected to reach school before the bell rings. The school gates close when the bell rings.

Every school day begins with the assembly. This helps in instilling a sense of discipline – of the body and the mind – right at the beginning of the day.
Assembly for Kindergarten students is held every morning, which includes physical exercises and meditation. Students from Class 1 to Class 10, congregate in the assembly hall in an orderly manner. The school prayer sung by them brings about a state of meditation, rendering peace and tranquillity to the atmosphere. This is an ideal way to enhance the concentration much required by students and teachers alike, throughout the day.
The first four days of the week – Monday to Thursday, provide the added stimulus of a presentation made by the students of Classes 5 to 10, by turns.
An inspiring talk and some useful quotations provide food for thought to one and all. An updating of current affairs is followed by a quiz held for all the students.
This interactive session proves to be most invigorating. A bit of commotion complements this motivating activity early in the morning.
THE SCHOOL PRAYER
(PRAYER FOR STRENGTH, KNOWLEDGE AND FEARNESS)
Oh Lord, bestow upon us Bhakti, Dhyana, Vivek and Vairagya,
Destroy the ignorance by lighting lamp of knowledge in our minds
Oh Lord, destroy the element of fear in us,
And make us fearless.
Oh Lord fill our minds, with full of self confidence,
That is lacking in us.
Oh Lord Bestow sufficient strength and courage,
To face all kinds of problems in our daily life.
Oh Lord makes our restless minds calm ,
By bestowing peace.
Oh Lord removes our attachments and lacquering for only enjoyments,
By filling our minds with Bhrahmanand eternal bless.
