Gobind Sarvar School
Gobind Sarvar School is a non-profit independent academic school which follows the Alberta mandated curriculum with Alberta certified teachers. The school provides higher standards of academics with affordable tuition fees. The classrooms are designed to promote a positive atmosphere with lower student to teacher ratios, the latest technological devices and provide an academic and spiritual learning environment.
The school's ethos is based on the teachings of Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Our School Mission is
"Inspiring students to become authentic life-long learners by providing a safe, nurturing environment focused on inquisitive thinking, self-exploration, and holistic growth."
Our philosophy is to create lifelong learners and to foster this we use the inquiry method in our classrooms. The Gurmat and Gurmukhi curriculum is integrated into the Alberta Education curriculum. Students learn how to incorporate Sikhi values into their everyday lives. At Gobind Sarvar School, our mornings start off with student-led meditation, which sets a positive atmosphere for the rest of the academic day.
The Gobind Sarvar School was first established in 1999 on the Tri-Centenary of the Khalsa Sirjna Divas in Bulandpuri Sahib, Punjab. Over the next 17 years, with Sahib Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s benevolence and grace, schools began operating worldwide in North America, Asia, and Europe.
In 2012, Gobind Sarvar Gurmat School was established in Calgary to provide youth of all ages a Gursikhi oriented environment. Students can blossom to their full potential through the knowledge of Gurmukhi (written form of Punjabi), Gurmat (Guru Ji’s teachings and values), Gurbani (Guru Ji’s sacred utterances), Gurbani Kirtan (the Sikh musical art form of singing God’s praises), and Gatka (Sikh martial arts).
From our humble beginnings at Gobind Sarvar Gurmat School with approximately 24 students in 2012, enrollment for evening classes has soared to an incredible 365 students in 2017. This success was only possible due to the amazing efforts of our volunteers, the unwavering dedication of the parents and the passion of our students.
The exceptional success of the evening classes clearly showed a need for a day school where children could learn their provincially mandated curriculum with the inclusion of Gurmat Classes. The decision to establish a Gobind Sarvar School in Calgary AB was founded through our connection to the community and our desire to spread love for humanity. The school aims to provide students with a challenging educational environment surrounded by access to the latest technology and programs to enable creativity and success. We are in touch with our roots and use the strength from these teachings to enshrine our belief Today’s Learner… Tomorrow’s Guide.
