Principal's Message

St. Joseph’s Indian Primary School was started in the year 2014. It is managed by the Fathers of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), a religious order of the Catholic Church, founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola in 1540. The Jesuits are active in the field of education throughout the world. In India, they run many schools and colleges. These institutions are part of the Catholic Church’s effort to impart education to the people of India and around the world.

It is natural that you look forward to shaping your child’s future and by choosing St Joseph’s Indian Primary School, you are enrolling your child in a school that is committed to ensure that your child reaches his/her fullest potential.

For the last 110 years St Joseph’s Institutions, fired with the force and fervour of Jesuit education behind its motto ‘Faith and toil’ have channelised all their energies to transform the lives of the students by making them academically accomplished, aesthetically refined, athletically vibrant, morally strong, socially sensitive, professionally competent, humanly compassionate and genuinely committed.

Though this School is new, it is part of the Josephite family which is more than a century old. The guiding values of compassion, commitment, conscience, competence, creativity, critical thinking, collaboration (team work) and cosmic-orientedness (care for the mother earth and the whole of the cosmos) will be the foundation on which we will proceed to build our School. Along with the excellent infrastructure which is already in place we hope to offer a broader range of co-curricular activities as the School proceeds to grow.

At the core of all our education is our value system. This is based on our vision of education as described by our Patron St Ignatius of Loyola, the democratic ideals of our nation and the deep rooted traditions of our country. As we embark on this new venture, we seek the blessings of God Almighty and the support of all our parents and collaborators so that we can do our very best.

The website gives us a quick overview of the events and activities of our school. We are committed to nurture each student’s potential and personalize the learning experience for every student. Professional and motivated faculty is dedicated to the excellent delivery of education through innovative methods of teaching. We aim to keep our students dreams and aspirations alive. At SJIPS we enable our students to exercise genuine respect for others, develop healthy relationships and to become responsible citizens to build a humane society.
