|Welcome to OSSAE Website
This is a spiritual organization functioning in all the
parishes of the Orthodox Church throughout the world. It takes care of the
spiritual nurturing of the children, by bringing them up in the knowledge and
fellowship of Jesus Christ and His Church. The classes are conducted in
Malayalam for the children in Kerala and for others in English. It has a
separate wing for the Outside Kerala Region (OKR).
The classes range from Pre-primary classes to the 12th class. As in secular
schools, class ten concludes the secondary level and a certificate is awarded
–Sunday School final Certificate (SSFC) to the successful candidates. Higher
Secondary course is for another two years.
At present we follow a curriculum, jointly prepared and published by the Oriental Orthodox
Churches which is revised from time to time. A complete revision of the whole
syllabus is in the anvil. syllabus of pre-primary, Class I, Class II and Class
XII will be revised w.e.f 2012 itself. A curriculam committee under the
leadership of H.G Ykoob Mar Ireneos is actively involved in the revision.
The vacation Bible School conducted during the mid summer holidays (OVBS) is a very vibrant wing of the
O.S.S.A.E. we publish separate text books, devotional materials, song books and
cassettes for the OVBS every year.
