“Dream is not that which you see while sleeping. It is something that does not let you sleep.”- Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

It's a matter of great privilege and immense pleasure for me to be part of this prestigious institution at St. Joseph’s Convent Sr. Sec. School, Ratlam. The year 2019-20, has its theme, “Dreaming for a Better Me and We.” It is a well-known fact that progress is based on dreams and dreams demand change, and change requires learning. Today’s children are dreamers they dream of progress, development and growth. They firmly believe that their dreams would lead to revolutionary ideas and eventually to action.

The Josephite gears towards academic and human excellence. We create an awareness our students that the world outside is very competitive and we have got to think way ahead with a vision, and up with an advancing technology. Our vision is to make students virtuous in life through holistic education for human excellence.

Education is an engine for the growth and progress of any society. It is not only imparting knowledge, skills and inculcates values, but is also responsible for building human capital which breeds, drives and sets technological innovation and economical growth. Education is a light that shows the right direction in life. The purpose of education is not just to make a student literate but to enhance the ability to think rationally.

In this institution we the staff are hardworking potters who mould the students into strong, capable, confident, young personalities who have dreams for themselves and go out to all parts of the world and to make a success of life. We instill in the students moral, spiritual, social, cultural and intellectual dimension, through the active dimension of teaching learning process, that takes place to enable our students to hold their heads high.

It is aptly said, “A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge and wisdom” As teachers we shall strive to mould our students into leaders of thought and action,into agents of proactive social transformation, so that we can leave behind us a better and more humane world.

Let’s not forget as Mahatma Gandhi said, “Formation of character should have priority over knowledge of the alphabet.”
