St Joseph’s Indian Primary School was started in the year 2014. It is managed by the Fathers of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), a religious order of the Catholic Church, founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola in 1540.
The Jesuits are active in the field of education throughout the world. In India, they have established many schools and colleges. These institutions are part of the Catholic Church’s effort to impart education to the people of India and around the world. Jesuit education is inspired by the life and teaching of Jesus Christ whom our countrymen have always revered and admired. It is also based on the sound principles of character formation laid down by St. Ignatius of Loyola.
World-affirming: Jesuit education acknowledges God as the Author of all reality, all truth and all knowledge. God is present and working in all of creation: in nature, in history and in person. Jesuit education, therefore, affirms the radical goodness of the world ‘charged with the grandeur of God.’ It regards every element of creation as worthy of study and contemplation and capable of endless exploration.
The education in a Jesuit institution tries to create a sense of wonder and mystery in learning about God’s creation. A more complete knowledge of creation can lead to a greater knowledge of God and a greater willingness to work with God in his ongoing work of creation. Courses are taught in a way that students, in humble recognition of God’s presence, find joy in learning and thirst for greater and deeper knowledge.
Our Motto: Faith and Toil
The motto of St Joseph’s Indian Primary School is :
FIDE ET LABORE in Latin, it means FAITH AND TOIL.
At Joseph’s we commit ourselves to the spirit
and ideals that have inspired several generations.
Faith, among other things is the quintessence of humans.
It makes humans to be committed to God,
to their fellowmen and to intellectual pursuits.
Toil is a necessary prerequisite for any success.
