“The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.”
( Proverbs 18:15 )
As Rector/Principal of Loyola College, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our College website. It showcases the wealth of experiences we offer the children and gives them a wider audience for their wonderful work. We hope you enjoy your visit and return regularly to check out our latest news.
Loyola College offers a caring, faith-filled environment where we focus on students’ individual needs to ensure that every child reaches his/her full potential. Our goal is to foster the growth of the whole child – spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, and physical.
We help our students to develop their faith and spirituality through daily Religious reflection and prayer. Students receive the opportunity to attend daily Mass twice a day, in the morning before the school starts and during the interval as well and they vigorously participate in the different religious functions and events whole throughout the year. They are very much involved with the planning and participation in these liturgies.
We offer a comprehensive and holistic approach in education inspired by the life and teachings of St. Ignatius, our patron saint, within the dogmas of Jesus Christ. My proficient team of teachers strive to focus on each and every child, appreciate their achievement and encourage them to overcome their inadequacies.
Our aim is to help our learners to generate love and to believe what is true; that they have much to offer this world should they choose to fulfil their own unique potential. Our children achieve this transformation for themselves and emerge more confident and assured of their worth as individuals, helped by the loving and guiding presence of parents, teachers, special needs assistants and other members of the school community.
We also focus on realizing, emerging and demonstrating the hidden capacities in all of our students. From academics to co-curricular activities, perseverance and determination are rooted in the heart of every student. In today’s dynamic world, global development and grooming are of supreme importance.
I am committed to academic excellence, including values-based leadership, curriculum and extensive sports and cultural programmes. Students are encouraged and facilitated to take part in them. Consequently, they have excelled with their talents to achieve success nationally and internationally giving fame to the Institution.
I sincerely believe that teamwork can reward extensively over time. It might not be easy in the beginning. It is the journey that I believe in and together we can march forward into a new future.
I thank you for visiting us where we can share with you our journey and celebrate our milestones of success as a team.
