Principal's Message


There is a parable which speaks of a man who built his house on rock and a man who built his house on sand. A wise man built his house on the rock; the rain fall and the floods came and the winds below and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because if had been founded on the rock. A foolish man built his house on sand, the rain fell and the floods came and the wind blew and beat against that house and it fell and great was the fall of it (from Holy Bible, Mt. 7:24-27).

This applies also to our life. If you cultivate positive and rock-solid convictions, belief and put in persistent hard work you can build a stable life-be it in your academics, discipline and social life or personal grooming.

Some of the recipes to build a strong foundation for your life could be right thoughts, right words, specific goal setting, responsibility for your actions and attitudes, right choice of friends, a never give-up spirit etc. These fortified with love, compassion, sharing and forgiveness will make your life dynamic, productive and successful.

Every step and every risk you take and every drop of sweat you shed to acquire the above recipes with creativity and vigor will help you build your house on rock.

It is worthwhile to ponder on what your life is built on. You are the architect of your life; you are the one to choose the foundation stone to build your life on and to decide its contents. It is important to makes sure that you have a solid foundation on rock to protect yourself from mental, physical and intellectual disasters.

The introduction of “Ten commandments for students” the ‘Ambassadors of peace’ added a new dimension to our identity as the member of the St. Joseph’s Family. It highlighted our uniqueness in understanding human values, thus to have a solid foundation on rock.

Dear all, building a better you is how you can make yourself a very pleasing gift to God and everyone who comes in contact with you.

God bless you.
