My greetings to all the readers! This Web site gives me an opportunity to reach
out to you all after taking over as Principal of CJM, New Delhi.
This school is a microcosm of the larger world for which we equip our wards using
our Mother Foundress’ pedagogy of “education in love”. Character develops itself
in the stream of life. Life in CJM is education itself.
We ignite the human spirit and the mind of our wards and teach them not what to
think but how to think. Thus, they can continue to grow and broaden their horizons,
which is the object and reward of learning. Apart from the knowledge of facts, we
emphasize on the knowledge of values and weave a variety of educational experiences
into the fabric of school life. Our aim is the holistic development and nurturing
of the unique qualities of each individual child entrusted in our care.
To fulfill our educational aims, I look forward to building up strong alliances
with all our collaborators in education: the parents, the faculty, the administrative
staff the management, the OSA and all other members of the CJM family. I acknowledge
the contribution of all who have helped in the growth of this institution. It is
the weaving of these individual threads that has created the rich tapestry of CJM,
Along with imparting value-based education, we are resolved to stand with the marginalized
and weaker sections of society, to work together in caring for our earth and in
educating others in the responsible use of its resources and to be instruments of
reconciliation, pardon and compassion. We cannot overestimate the importance of
this mission because our very existence tomorrow depends on it and our capacity
to counter the negative impact of societal trends towards violence and materialism.
I am committed to upholding the ideals of our Mother Foundress, Saint Claudine
Thevenet, and to change the lives of our students in a positive way. The essential
qualities I wish to foster in them are love, integrity, humility, courtesy, wisdom
and charity. To all who read this message, I wish an abundance of the peace and
joy of Christ our Lord.
