Sr. Vilma Menezes
Dear Students, Parents, Staff members and Well-wishers,
Congregation of the Sisters of St. Ann are completing 150 years of our presence in India.(1871-2021) It is my honor and privilege to greet you with warm prayerful wishes that you be showered with abundant blessings from the Almighty. I am sure that many were the beneficiaries of this St. Mary’s Senior Secondary School Civil Lines, Moradabad.
A good educational system helps a child to nurture his talents and overcome his shortcomings. Only by providing appropriate, all-encompassing education that will lead to the development of the all-round personality of a child equipped to face the challenges of life in all his future endeavors, we will be able to raise ideal future citizens of our country and the world.
In the words of John Dewey -“Education is the process of living through a continuous reconstruction of experiences. It is the development of all those capacities in the individual which will enable him to control his environment and fulfill his possibilities”.
We believe that the approach of motivating and getting the best out of the children is based on the positive reinforcement of good work and good behavior with a philosophy which centers on praise, encouragement, enthusiasm, fun and affection rather than criticism, fear and punishment. Nevertheless, nothing worthwhile can be achieved without a sense of discipline and thus our students will be expected to conform to high disciplinary standards and to cherish the values of tolerance, fair play, compassion, and independent thinking.
The parents can assuredly repose faith in the sincerity of purpose and dedication of the faculty. I am confident that the students will find their educational experience at St. Mary’s Senior Secondary School moradabad a fruitful and rewarding one.
