From Principal's Desk
Dear Students and Parents/Guardians of St. Xavier’s High School Howrah,
“THE HIGHEST EDUCATION IS THAT WHICH DOES NOT MERELY GIVE US INFORMATION, BUT MAKES OUR LIFE IN HARMONY WITH ALL EXISTENCE"
A child steps out of his/her mother’s lap, enters a school, and after 14 years leaves the threshold of the school as a young adult. The school plays an important part as a child paves his/her way towards adulthood. A school is the place where a child develops his/her dreams, imbibes elements from the environment to shape his/her personality, socializes, and learns to conform to the expected behavior and ways of the world.
And here lies the importance of education. Education, in one word, is man-making. It not only unfolds the latent qualities of an individual or helps to embrace knowledge but makes continuous endeavors to form character and increases the strength of mind in order to bring oneself from darkness into the light of being human.
Having been an educator for several years, I keenly support the pivotal and proactive role an educational organization plays in today's society. I feel honoured to be in charge of a seat of learning that can mould the most significant resource of any nation- young and impressionable human minds.
Modern world is knowledge-dominated. The pool of knowledge is dynamic and it is being constantly modified by the ongoing scientific and technological progress. To keep pace with the modern world one needs to adapt to the changing knowledge pool and think in terms of the new developments. While St. Xavier's High School (STXHS) imparts knowledge to its pupils, it also provides an ample scope for the students to think for themselves, develop their own opinions, and even go beyond the classroom activities. Under the able guidance of our teachers, children learn the values of honesty, kindness, generosity, perseverance, and respect in order to be more responsible, self-disciplined, and able members of the global fraternity.
Indeed I would like to say to my students "If you set a goal for yourself, you will surely get into the habit of taking all the pains necessary to achieve the same."Your sincerity, determination, and positive action will serve as the keys for your success and will provide you with an opportunity to enjoy every second of your life. In your pursuit of success, STXHS will nurture you to become a productive and happy individual. STXHS strives on the vision that students make the best use of its infrastructure facilities and opportunities to come out as successful future ready citizens equipped not only with academic excellence but also with values and skills to live a better life.
