“O give thanks to the Lord for He is good .His love endures forever”. Psalm 136:1
Esteemed Parents, Students and Teachers,
I extend a warm welcome to all of you to this new academic year 2022-2023.
“Education is the passport to the future. For tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today”. Says, Maicolam X
Today we live in a digital world. Where everything is available under the sky with a click of the mouse. Things reach at our door within a fraction of seconds. Such is the world in which we live today. A world which is fast moving and slowly the values have lost it’s importance. In such scenario the need of education takes an important place. The life after Covid -19 pandemic has become a challenging one. Education helps to face the challenges and to live a righteous life.
Teacher plays a vital role in the lives of the pupils under his / her care. The child under our care should be able to receive the love, care, affection, understanding, acceptance and respect. The greatest example we have in the modern world is the example of St.Mother Theresa. She showed to the world how education can transform the humanity. Because for her education is not for the formation of intellect, but it is for the formation of the mind, where a person can turn to be of love, concern, caring, understanding etc. Education is for the welfare and transformation of the human persons. Anybody can contribute for the development of the intellect, but for the mind formation we need teachers. It is the need of the hour, to mould the young minds to great persons of tomorrow. That is, transformation of human persons.
Teachers are builders, for they help to built up their students into integrated personalities. They are moulders, for they mould the character of those whom they educate. Teachers are the leaders for their noble task is to lead, direct and guide the steps of their pupils towards the heights of the truth and into the depths of goodness and love. They are men and women who give of their time, their energies, their patience, their warmth, their inspiration to make their students better criticized of tomorrow.
As I mentioned earlier, today we live in a world where the value is losing it’s value. And to cope with such situations education becomes an effective means.
May Mother Mary, the patroness of the school intercede for all of us. Let Her become a source of strength, support and guide to all of us.
I take the opportunity to bid a warm adieu to our outgoing batch of Class X students on successful completion of their studies. I am confident that they will hold Nirmala flag high wherever they are.
Once again a extend a warm welcome to each of you to this academic year2022-2023.
