At the entrance of a university in South Africa, the following message was pasted for contemplation: “Destroying any nation does not require the use of atomic bombs or the use of long range missiles. It only requires lowering the quality of education and allowing cheating in the examinations by the students. Patients die at the hands of such doctors. Buildings collapse at the hands of such engineers. Money is lost at the hands of such economists and accountants. Humanity dies at the hands of such religious scholars. Justice is lost at the hands of such judges…..The collapse of education is the collapse of a Nation”.

Setting a very high standard in education, APJ Abdul Kalam has placed the responsibility on three key persons when he said “If a country is to become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.”

Therefore the role of parents and teachers in imparting quality education can never be underestimated nor can they be substituted. We can proudly say that at St. Mary’s Convent Sr. Sec. School, Teetardi we have a highly dedicated and competent faculty; who take teaching not as a profession but as a mission in their lives. For the students and teachers, the school is a home away from home. While focusing on the academic excellence, we give utmost importance to the character formation and an all round development of the students. Greatest attention is paid to the students’ health, wholeness, well-being and happiness. Human dignity, self respect, universal brotherhood are some of the values that are being inculcated by personal examples and a host of co-curricular activities, which transform the child from an attitude of ‘what can you give me’ to ‘what can I do for you’.

Congratulations to all our students of classes XII and X for the excellent CBSE Board Examination results! I take this opportunity to acknowledge the role played by the former Principal, the Management, the parents and the teachers in accompanying our students to cross this very important mile stone in their lives. We are proud of you!

Dear students and teachers, as you plunge into another scholastic year of learning, discovery and exploration; into the world of knowledge and innovation, remind yourself each day that you are the reflection of God’s goodness and beauty. Do not think that you are nothing. Do not also think that you are everything. But always think that you are something and you will achieve everything. Nothing in this world can replace persistence and determination. I wish each of you a very exciting year ahead, full of fun, frolic and great experiences leading to success coupled with the blessings of God and your teachers. Jai Bharat!
