Dear Parents, Staff and Students,
I feel honoured and humbled to have been called upon to serve St. Patrick’s Academy, Bengaluru, as your principal. There is no greater calling than to teach and lead a vibrant and futuristic school like St. Patrick’s Academy. I look forward to a fruitful stint at SPAB. I thank all the Brothers, especially Bro.Paulachan, Bro. Tomy Varghese, my predecessors, Bro. Christopher (community leader), staff, both teaching and non teaching - past and present - who have toiled hard to build up SPAB to its present status. The onus is now passed on to us to let our flag flutter high and handsome. We shall be failing in our duty if we do not enhance it to greater heights! We got to set a sustainable pace and work tirelessly to attain the goals we set. We shall recognise the alarming pace at which the world is moving forward and that even to stay on the same place we need to run! And Run shall we!
We recognise the unprecedented challenge posed by the pandemic and its impact on schools and particularly on the students. I would like to acknowledge and appreciate the staff for standing up to the challenge and offering uninterrupted online teaching-learning experience to the students. While we admit that online classes cannot substitute effective and wholesome education that could be provided in a live classroom environment, the next best option is being effectively carried out by our teachers. I do not foresee an early return to school this year as well. However, as and when that happens, your school will be prepared to welcome all of you into a safe and protected environment. Till such time, I encourage all of you to stay safe and be responsible for your own and your loved ones’ health and well-being.
The school office will be open on all working days, unless curbed by the lockdowns. Any query pertaining the school shall be addressed to the office through school mail ID. I have just taken up the mantle of this institution in such a scenario and so it’s a big challenge for me to understand every aspect of it to address all your concerns. But I will be interested in the welfare of every Patrician. Do write to me if you have constructive suggestions for improvement. I shall go through and consider the viable and forward looking suggestions to act upon and to set priorities for the year ahead. It is important not to be over critical if your suggestions are not given immediate attention.
I urge parents to ensure your wards attend classes with all diligence and dignity of a normal classroom. I value discipline above all other virtues. I will be observing the classes at random and I love to see students attending classes with all its seriousness and in 100% attendance.
I shall communicate with all parents from time to time via mail and sooner or later in person. I look forward to a progressive school with a proactive, supportive and encouraging community of parents, staff and students. Together we can do so much and we shall do so with all our heart.
In love and confidence,
Bro. George Joseph
