MESSAGE FROM ADMINISTRATOR
I deem this a great privilege to be able to welcome you back to St. Norbert School and to our new academic year 2018 –’19. On behalf of our school community, I welcome all who have joined our staff in the new academic year, a special welcome to all our new students. May the ethos of our school ring out loud and clear - where all around will see us at St. Norbert as a community who work together to develop in our students the capacity to become independent life-long learners and to equip them with the skills and knowledge to pursue their goals.
Everybody desires to live a perfect life, hold great jobs, and run a successful business. On a couple of occasions, I have had the opportunity to hear our students give their birthday speeches at the morning assembly, where they would very confidently share what they would like to be when they get older, to be doctors, engineers, teachers and even football players in the future. Hearing their dreams said aloud gives me such a sense of thrill and satisfaction and I say to myself, ‘hope their dreams come true’. We believe that every child in this school should always be growing and learning. It may happen at different levels but growing should happen. Every one of us defines living a good life in one way or another. For one person a good life may be just having three meals a day and a roof over their head, for another it may be having a huge mansion and crores of rupees saved in the bank.
My dear friends, expecting to secure a good job without studying hard is like expecting to win a marathon without running it. Everyone has a talent and so do you. Pray, you will use that talent well.
We are so blessed to have a beautiful school building and an excellent eco-friendly environment, but that alone cannot infuse the vision and passion that guides the school’s development. And I believe it is the human spirit and a happy interaction between teachers and students which will make the difference and ensure higher levels of learning.
Dear staff and students, I would like to close with a final reminder to everyone who calls St. Norbert School their home. As always, we are focused on providing a challenging yet attainable educational experience to all our students, and opportunities for investigative minds to pursue their passions.
Welcome to the new school year! I hope that this year will be both an exciting and challenging year for all. I wish you all the very best and let this year be a year of great achievement in every aspect of your school life.
Fr. Jose Anthanattu
