It is my proud privilege in being given the responsibility of looking after the Junior Wing in an institution which has such a rich legacy. It would be my effort along with my colleagues to bring satisfaction to every parent that their child is not just being cared for, but is being educated in an environment that is safe, secure and enriched with a value system that has been the hallmark of the school, over the last 75 years.
At St Columba’s, we as a team strive towards achieving a holistic learning environment in which the students are exposed to stimulating and challenging activities. They are given hands on experience and provided ample opportunities to participate in various competitions. Field trips nurture in them good friendships and foster healthy relationships between one another. They are encouraged to showcase themselves on stage, thus,bringing afore their latent talents. This promotes the spirit of enquiry and develops a scientific temper too in them to hone their existing talent and learn a host of new ones.
Our teachers keep themselves abreast with the latest educational methodologies and technology and ensure that each child in the school is nurtured and encouraged to have clear conceptual understanding and is confident of his/her own abilities.
We also believe that establishing positive and effective home school partnership is vitally important to create trust and understanding to help all children achieve their full potential.
It will be our effort to ensure that our little children look forward to come to school every day. The environment of happiness, caring and sharing and most importantly, a love for learning will always be endeavoured to be nurtured, which will stay with them throughout their life.
