In case of lack of support of the guardian is noticed, in building character of the student according to the ideal of Swami Vivekananda, the student has to leave the school. He has also to leave the school for low percentage of presence, bad habit/s, perversity or any fault like these.

Religious and Moral Training:

True Religion forms the basis of all activities in this institution. Neither sectarian nor ritualistic religion is taught, but every care is taken to make the students grow in all directions; i.e. physical, intellectual, moral and spiritual as envisaged by Swami Vivekananda. The institution relies on the potency of a favorable environment for gently drawing the minds of the students towards higher values of life. So, a spiritual ambience is sought to be maintained through regular congregational prayers, discourses, celebration of religious festivals and birthday anniversaries of spiritual leaders. Prayer forms an integral part of the students’ daily life. To develop among students, Indian ideal of life, special classes on Indian Culture are held once in a week. To implant the sterling qualities of great lives in their minds, the biographies of great men are studied with special emphasis on the inspiring traits like truthfulness, self-sacrifice etc.

Students clean the school premises and their own classrooms. In the ‘Work Education’ classes they are also taught to prepare different types of household commodities. Students are always encouraged to do their own works by themselves as well as to render service to the community.

Co-curricular and Creative Activities:

Co-curricular and Creative Activities are one of the most essential parts of education. This institution conducts various kinds of programmes/competitions throughout the year to help a child in manifesting his dormant traits and to meet a growing boy’s various interests. Eager and willing students can learn music, tabla, band and drawing under expert teachers.

Among the co-curricular activities music (instrumental and vocal), painting, debate, elocution, recitation, drama, quiz and literary works are worth mentioning. To encourage students in bringing out their creativity, educational exhibition is also conducted every year.

In the adjacent land of the school premises, ‘Kamarpukur Ramakrishna Mission Multipurpose School Hostel’ is situated. Almost 16% students of the total strength of the school stay in the hostel.

Guardians’ Responsibility:

It is expected that the guardians would share the same ideas and inculcate those ideas in the minds of their wards. It is necessary that guardians should have faith or ‘Shraddha’ in the ideas or ideals of this institution, without which the teaching learning process of this institution would remain incomplete. When the boys [hostel] remain with their guardians, they should be exhorted to follow as far as practicable, the daily routine of this institution. The young ones follow almost blindly their friends and companions. Guardians are therefore, requested to watch carefully their wards’ friends and companions at home and outside and guide their wards to avoid mixing with false or undesirable friends and companions, so that no untoward incident might occur in future.

Guardians should also be very vigilant so that their wards witness T.V. / Video / CDs / Cinema shows as minimum as possible. Programmme which seems to be conducive to the healthy development of the boys may be allowed and encouraged. Reading of healthy books, journals and magazines, etc. are also to be encouraged.


Swami Vivekananda used to say that education is the panacea to all social evils. He said, “We must have life building, man-making assimilation of ideas.” The main source of inspiration is the teaching of Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda. The school, therefore, endeavors to educate the students in its charge according to the best traditions of the country, while instructing them in all directions – physically, mentally, intellectually and spiritually. As it prepares the students for public examination, it also tries to attend to their all-round growth and development. This is the ideal of education which we try to implement at Kamarpukur Ramakrishna Mission Multipurpose School.
