Goshala: Have 2-3 cows near school where children serve them. Have tie up with bigger goshala so once they are more in number you can transfer them to bigger one.
 
     
  Areas to focus apart from teaching:

Gardening: Children actually doing it. Keep an acre for this. Allot small piece of 10x2 ft to each child and they can cultivate different plants. Let them put hands in mud and cow dung and let them experience
crop cultivation themselves. They should know what is polished and unpolished grain, their benefits.

Academics:

Vedic Maths: Teaching trigonometry with Vedic sutras & many other topics

Learning Science, History, maths on the field.

Vedic math and Sanskrit is must. Each child should know 4 languages. Language is the key and they should have good command over it.

Teach them basic ideas of Economics. E.g. if you have so much money, how much you will spend on what and how much you save. Teach them value of savings and not wasting money and things
unnecessarily.

Values to focus:

Children should be taught these values of conservation and reuse. Earlier the books and dresses were passed to next year’s students. Throw away as less as possible; reduce waste.
Awareness programs to impart these values to children. E.g. stick small printed suggestions like ‘Please use less water’, ‘Close tap after usage’ near sinks, wash rooms etc.

 
 
     
  Spirituality:

Learn couple of stories from scriptures every day. Children should know all stories from Ramayan, Mahabharata, main stories from Srimad Bhagavatam, other prominent stories from Puaranas like origin of Ganges by the time they pass 10th.

Use examples from nature to prove how God made perfect things around us. E.g. tree root as perfect water pumps.
Basic religious study of other religions.
By 10th, they should know full Bhagavat Gita, 50-100 slokas from Srimad Bhagavatam, 50-100 slokas from Caitanya Charitamrita & other books that Srila Prabhupada quotes and few slokas from Chanakya Niti and Hitopadesh. Even if they can’t understand meaning still it is good that they know them. It will help later.

Projects:

Grow cotton in one part of ground, make children pick it, teach them weaving. Have one handloom machine and teach them how to spin and make thread, how to create natural dyes and then finally how to make cloth that we wear. Then take them to factory and show how they make cloth now. Ask what difference they feel. Tell them how the world has come so far and also how far from nature and God - it’s pros and cons.

Have projects about how to make handmade paper, pottery as art and craft.

Teachers can handle the negative effects of media like internet by creating awareness amongst children about its benefits and harm, when to use and how to use.
 
     
 

 
Summary - By 10th when a child passes out:

A holistic development of the child would have taken place in knowledge, skills and values. He / she would see and experience the dependence on nature / environment around us and not take it for granted. Learning to be grateful for the supplies we get for day-to-day living and reusing them as much as possible, reducing waste and helping others do the same with God in the center. The wisdom from the scriptures would give logical arguments to continue with faith thus making them ready to face the world in whatever areas they choose.

Quantitatively, a 10th pass out student would:
abe very good in yoga and ayurveda
aknow few hundred verses from scriptures, many with meaning and understanding
aknow many scriptural stories with values being focussed
ahave exposure to life skills like farming, cow protection, cooking, arts etc
ahave command over 4 languages
aknow Vedic math and history to some extent
abe good at academics at par with reputed board
