Message from the Principal
“By Education I mean an all-round drawing out of the best in the child and man
in body, mind and spirit.” Gandhi
A warm welcome to all who are engaged in learning at Convent of Jesus and Mary, Kharghar, (SSC) for this New Academic Year 2018 -2019.
We are ready to start a great year of adventure in learning! Teaching and learning offer us numerous opportunities to focus on a number of ‘little things’ that culminate over time to produce ‘great things’ in life.
The Convent of Jesus and Mary aims to develop Life Skills, Leadership skills, Social and Emotional skills, and Academic skills to prepare students not only for a successful school career but more for their future life, building and harnessing fruitful relationships while on the journey of life.
Through our Jesus and Mary Vision and Mission, and motivated by the inspirational Values of St. Claudine – our Foundress, we leave no stone unturned in molding you to be good communicators, to develop a scientific mind for enquiry, knowledgeable and caring persons who help to create a better and more peaceful and sustainable world through inter-cultural understanding and respect for Nature and the dignity of the ‘Other.
To help our students be successful in school, we need to help them understand what is required of them to be a enthusiastic learners both inside and outside the classroom. We need to talk to them about qualities and learning behaviors such as : making sensible choices, taking positive risks, viewing errors as opportunities, working to recover from a mistake, giving and receiving feedback, asking questions, collaborating with peers, setting goals, planning with a purpose, and tracking their own progress.
Students need both worthwhile challenges and strong support to grow and we look forward to helping students maximize their growth at CJM. By working together, we can help each child achieve an excellent education in a safe, protective and positive environment.
We will endeavor to form children with Character, Personality and Intellectual capabilities who will transform society and not just fit into it…form them to be Socially conscious “Persons for Others” with a strong…Faith in God, Family and Nation, enabling them to live a Healthy, Happy and Wholesome life.
I am certain that with God by our side, together with the encouragement and support of the Management, the entire School Community –Teachers, Parents and Helpers, our JM Family will forge ahead towards the fulfillment of our Goals.
