It was Krishnamurti's oft-expressed wish that there should be a school in Western India. This wish was realized during the Birth Centenary year of Krishnamurti with the commencement of Sahyadri School in September, 1995.
Krishnamurti had been coming to Mumbai from 1948 to 1985 giving public talks and interviews. He had also been to Pune on three occasions. The region had felt and expressed the need for a Krishnamurti School. The vision for a school in Western India was born in response to this long felt need. The late Shri Achyut Patwardhan's tireless efforts and generous assistance from several well-wishers saw this vision turn into reality by November, 1994.
Entering Sahyadri for the first time is an experience most children cherish. Small numbers in class, breathtaking natural beauty and caring staff members, all help in nurturing the child through the entry process. In junior school (classes 4 to 6), enquiry, reflection and creative ex
are encouraged through the curriculum as well as through projects, field-visits, camps, nature-study, drama, story-telling and writing.
Housed in a beautifully designed Art Complex, the Art Faculty provides a richly creative ambience for learning a wide variety of arts and craftwork. Children grow in their aesthetic sensibilities through learning sketching, painting, batik, tie and dye, pottery, clay work and weaving. In addition, workshops are held in bamboo craft, puppetry, glass painting, mask making, sculpture, Madhubani painting, and so on. About music and dance...
A healthy body and steady development of physical skills is essential for children. Sahyadri has a vigorous physical education programme which includes facilities for a wide range of games. Football, basketball, cricket, tennis, badminton, hockey, softball, volleyball, throw ball, handball and table tennis are regularly played on campus. Strength and stamina are enhanced through a morning exercise program. Games like kabbadi and kho-kho are also encouraged and actively played. Besides formal games, hikes, treks and outdoor camps are a regular feature at school.
