The Vision & Mission of our school as a Catholic Institution is ‘Education for Life’. Our Foundress St. Magdalene of Canossa had a vision of forming students for life, preparing them to form a good family and make a contribution to society and the nation.
We all know that education is a continuous and creative process. We at Canossa endeavour to sow the seeds of knowledge by promoting a value-based education irrespective of caste, race, region or religion.
The true purpose of education is to give our students opportunities and an environment that is positive, inspiring and healthy, so as to develop an all-round personality: intellectual, physical, emotional, moral and spiritual. We inculcate in them the values of honesty, sincerity, discipline and sacrifice. We try to develop the habit of caring and sharing, especially with the weaker sections of society. We also teach them to care for the environment, to find fulfilment in work and to achieve higher levels of excellence in life.
If we are truly educated we will always stand on the side of truth, no matter the cost.
For me, education does not mainly mean providing answers. It means equipping the pupil with an ability to find answers for herself and within herself. Education empowers students to discover themselves – who they are as persons.
My aim is not only to be an able administrator but also to be a friend, philosopher and guide to students; one whom they can count on and trust at all times. I assure you that my doors will always be open to the students and their parents for any suggestion or guidance.
The kindness and support from the parents, staff and students I have met have been overwhelming and I appreciate this deeply. Ours is truly a school committed to the value-based success of its students in different aspects of their lives. I look forward to working with each of you for the excellence of Canossa High School, Andheri.
May God Bless Us All !
