Principal's Message

Convent of Jesus and Mary, New Delhi completes 104 years of its glorious existence this year. St. Claudine Thevenet, our Foundress, was a visionary who dedicated her life to the education of the young, especially the poor and the marginalized.

St. Claudine Thevent believed that education should not be merely limited to the transmission of knowledge. It was essential for students to develop a strong moral compass and to imbibe the values of empathy, kindness and forgiveness. She wanted her students to reach out to the poorest of the poor, the downtrodden and the underprivileged and while doing so, strive towards strengthening their faith in God.

The classroom, she believed, should be a place where where students can engage in holistic learning, that which combines knowledge with Christian values of compassion, justice, peace and faith and encourages children to become a better version of themselves every day. St. Claudine believed that education should celebrate the individuality of a child and exhort children to believe in themselves.

St. Claudine’s value system and pedagogy are still relevant today. In a world that is divided and conflict ridden, we need to sensitize our students.

As Convent of Jesus and Mary, New Delhi embarks onward on its journey of educating girls, all of us should strive towards creating strong women, who are not onl;y successful in their respective careers, but are also endowed with the much needed qualities of kindness, empathy, honesty and integrity. Our goal remains to empower women by educating them, so that they become an asset to the society and to keep the head of their Alma Mater flying high.

I extended my heartfelt gratitude to the staff, parents, the Parent Teacher Association and the Old Students Association for supporting us and hope this long association helps us in all our future endeavors.

Let us join hands in grooming these young minds so that they may walk the path of life successfully.

May CJM, New Delhi continue to live up to its Motto “To Serve With Love”
God bless!

With warm regards,

Sr.Gracy Paul
