Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. -Nelson Mandela
If there is one thing that can change the world, it is education and schools are the pillars
of formal education. Along with providing formal education to your wards, this school
aspires more; we believe in experiential learning, where a child learns through
experiences and participation so that the lesson always stays with her. “Tell me and I
forget. Teach me and I may remember. Involve me and I learn.”
Learning is not a process limited to school and colleges only, nor does it end with the conclusion of one’s school career. It is indeed a lifelong process. This school is oriented to the total formation of a child and to adaptations of various methods suiting the dynamics of changing world in order to achieve common goals and objectives.it is further characterized by shared vision – responsibility and above all, love and faith in God in order to achieve these goals.
It’s my message, that the people of fine character live by their values. They are honest and are committed to truthfulness in thought, word and deed. True character thus encompasses the capacity for self- discipline. Always remember to uphold the dignity of people. the decisions we make, the friends we choose, and the responsibilities we accept. Be always ready to give preference to others. “What you are is God’s gift to you. What you become is your gift to God.”
Lastly, and most importantly, our aim is to instil values in our children so that they grow up to be good human beings and responsible citizens. Together lets teach them the importance of values and attributes like kindness, honesty, generosity, humility, optimism, perseverance, tolerance and more…..so that they create a beautiful world around them. Together, we can make a difference!......... Have something to live for. Bring out the best in you.
May the Almighty God along with Mother of Carmel and Our Foundress Venerable Mother Veronica continue to bless us all and be a Blessing to Others!
