ZEN laid its strong foundations of learning at PADRA, Vadodara in 1998 and established itself through its unique and rich holistic approach towards the teaching learning process by integrating the traditional learning methods with a blend of the modern techno-savvy aids with an aim to enable the child to explore and experience greater heights in learning.
ZEN came up with a new unit in the year 2007 at Vallabh Vidhyanagar.
What does ZEN mean? The word ZEN is a Japanese attempt at pronouncing the Chinese word “Chan”, which in turn is the Chinese attempt at pronouncing the Sanskrit word“Dhyana”, which translates as “Meditation”. When one intellectually dwells in the present moment, one completely dissolves into whatever activity one manifests. One becomes the activity. Simplicity is often associated with ZEN. ZEN practice is indeed simple, if not easy. Just practice being fully present, right here, right now. Perceive directly, without filtering perceptions through beliefs and preconceptions.
It is a school with a difference! It strives to build character, enrich mind and experiences of the learners that lasts a lifetime. School’s efforts are directed to set a trend, where learning is not just restricted to instructions but is a passion, which goes beyond books. Our staff endeavours to accommodate and address the expectations of each student by enabling them to participate in various interactive programmes organized in and out of the institution. The school offers a variety of opportunities for a multidimensional growth, making a learner articulate, amiable and affable person. In short, ZEN prepares the students to meet the challenges of life and mould them into civilized and better human beings.
