Principal Speaks

Dear Students, Parents and Viewers,

Mount St. Patrick Academy, young at heart and mind, has indeed made a steady stride in providing quality and holistic education to our children in a short span of time. At this time, we gratefully recall and acknowledge the dedication, immense contribution and hard work put in by our Pioneering Brothers who of course, strained every nerve to turn a longstanding dream and vision into reality, called Mount St. Patrick Academy.

The Patrician Brothers have been in the field of education for more than two centuries and therefore, all our schools foster total and integrated development of each student in his/her uniqueness so that he or she becomes intellectually alert, emotionally balanced to make a smart living, conscious of a call to build up the human community and caring for ecological harmony and thus making our school – ‘a life – enhancing resource centre’.

The school has made every attempt to put our philosophy of education into concrete action in line with emerging demands, trends in education and also the turbulent period our children live in.

“We want that education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one can stand on one’s own feet” - Swami Vivekananda.

“Education is the process by which a society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledge, skills and values from one generation to another”.

These two maxims aptly sum up our philosophy of education. The school strives in keeping the above maxim in mind to form and produce integrated persons of high all round integrity, with a high sense of competency in all spheres of life: persons who are professionally involved, socially sensitive, and culturally erudite and enlightened, persons of self confidence and self esteem with strong faith and trust in God.

The school has made sincere efforts to provide our children a taste of appreciation of higher achievements of humanity, the art forms, such as music, dance and drama, sports and athletics. We always strive to create an environment in the campus in which nourishing and affirming behavior are held supreme.
Last but not the least, I humbly bow before the Almighty whose light and providence has guided and protected us and I continue to seek his blessings on all and the school.

Good luck and God bless you all.

Sincerely yours,
Bro. Jacob V. Joseph
