The system of education followed in the Schools run by the Salesian Sisters is the Preventive System which is based on three great principles of Reason, Religion and Loving Kindness which create the educational climate of the school. The Sisters, Teachers, Parents and Students constitute an integral unit known as the Educating Community whose primary aim is to form the young to become builders of an honest society, women of upright thinking and acting, commitment and competence.
Reason stands for a wise and progressive enlightenment of the minds of the young , opening them to the world of culture, realities of life and the appeal of values. Reason also implies a clear enlightenment of the mind on the truths concerning God and moral behavior by a sound and systematic moral education.
In dealing with the young, reason also signifies reasonableness, good sense, simplicity, and avoidance of anything artificial. The rules of good behavior inculcated must be reasonable and essential; they must be clearly explained and their necessity and value must be patiently brought home to the young. Reason in the context also means persuasiveness and dialogue, and formation of the conscience to personal responsibility and freedom.
