Dear Teachers, Staff, Students and Parents,
Mary Ward, our Founder, had foretold that women in time to come would do much. Our pedagogical practices, with their emphasis on the spiritual, social, emotional and intellectual development of our students have been designed to fulfil her vision and create women leaders of the future who would be “Seekers of truth and doers of justice”.
Her inspiration as is ours, are the teachings of Christ the Lord, and this finds emblematic expression in the lives and work of our House Patrons, which in turn is reflected in the day to day activities of the school. Our goal and philosophy may be aptly summed up by the following extract from Justice Leila Seth’s autobiography, “On Balance”:
“My religion is to love justice, to long for the right, to love mercy, to pity suffering, to assist the weak, to forgive wrongs and remember benefits, to love the truth, to be sincere, to utter honest words, to love liberty, to wage relentless war against slavery in all its forms...to cultivate the mind, to be familiar with the mighty thoughts genius has expressed, the noble deeds of the world; to cultivate courage and cheerfulness, to make others happy, to fill life with the splendour of generous acts, the warmth of loving words; to discard error, to destroy prejudice, to receive new truths with gladness, to cultivate hope, to see the calm beyond the storm, the dawn beyond the night...This is the religion of reason, the creed of science. This satisfies the brain and the heart” and the spirit.
May God ever bless you and keep you and yours.
Mrs. Kaveri Dutt
