Spiritual Moral Values

In the race for material growth there has been simultaneous decay in spiritual, moral and human values world over. Life today seems to be caught in a spiral of hatred and greed, which are manifested through increasing spate of crime, corruption and violence. In this dark and dismal scenario, Carmel tries to make significant contribution to individual growth and to bring about fundamental structural change in the society, changes that are necessary for the creation of a just, peaceful and harmonious society. Keeping this in mind the school promotes values that are common to all religions-compassion, courtesy, equality, generosity, hospitality, honesty, integrity, kindness, meekness, tolerance , moderation-which would help children to lead meaningful, successful and happy lives. The school has strong emphasis on moral values, constructive thoughts and dynamic action. The students are trained to live rough and tough so that they can overcome the challenges of life with grit and probity.
