''On the road to success the rule is always to look ahead..''

It gives me an immense sense of happiness and honor to announce that St Joseph's Sr. Sec. School is all set to commence its new session with renewed enthusiasm and commitment to impart quality 360 degree education to its extra inquisitive learners . For the new session I look forward to incorporating meaningful and modern pedagogic insights rendered by our extremely competent faculty.

With the changing paradigms of education which hold no space for rote learning and passive listening, we will continue to provide our students with opportunities and situations that facilitate them to exhibit their hidden potential to the fullest. I strongly believe that today's generation has an unquenchable thirst to seek knowledge that cannot be satiated by traditional methods of teaching .

St Joseph's, Siswa for years has been a school that focuses on opportunities and achievements , a place where students are encouraged and supported to excel. It is our belief that high school should be an experience of a life time. Our high school should be an experience sets of the stage for the success later in life and provides a lifetime of positive memories for our students.

Academic excellence with character and personality development is our ultimate goal. The well chalked out academic and co-curricular programmes enable the students to attain their full potential to develop sound work habit. The academic work is centered on highly personalized attention and supervision.

St Joseph's Sr. Sec. School with an infrastructure confirming to national standards and an array of opportunities to tap on individual talent is all set to edify the young learners keeping in view a synchronous growth of their body, mind and soul. At the outset of a new session , I would request all parents to gift their children with their "time" that by far remains the best present . I also appeal to my teachers to focus on each and every child , monitor and mentor them,appreciate their achievement and encourage them to overcome their shortcomings. I urge all the teachers to create appreciate, meaningful and participative learning situations, inculcating life skills in the impressionable children and appreciating their minutest efforts with all generously and broadness of vision.

The continuous effort to reinforce the commitment to achieve that mile helps students discover and reach their personal goals in life. This is evident in the school's consistent show of excellent academic results and a diverse alumni body. The school enables every student to carve a niche for themselves and become a responsible Indian citizen.

The academic session has continued to provide an excellence driven , world class and holistic education provided by our foundation. We have thoroughly worked upon this respect for traditions, together with a progressive attitude towards the future, academic rigor with a caring heart and an appreciation of the individual with the warmth of a cohesive school community.

And as the cliche goes, last but not the least , I expect all my students to focus on their cherished goals and strive hard to accomplish them transcending mediocrity and procrastination because like I always say,

"Be the best from the rest".......The choice is yours! Best wishes for a very eventful and productive academic session!
