Principal’s Message

sr. monicaCanossa High School, Andheri, is one of the leading and most sought after secondary school in Mumbai, imparting quality education. Our vision is to “Educate, Enlighten, and Empower”. The school which had a humble beginning has today more than 1000 students and 50 staff members in the secondary section, besides the Primary and the Pre-Primary section within the same campus.

We live today in a world that is so very different from the one we grew up in, the one we were educated in. The world today is changing at such an accelerated rate and we as educators need to pause and reflect on this entire system of Education.  Are our school well equipped to prepare our children to face the challenges that the future holds? Questions such as these are factors that motivate us to go through a continuous process of reflection and hence we at Canossa work at implementing a well-balanced curriculum to ensure that the children who walk into the portals of our School will not just love their school years but truly be prepared to face life’s challenges.  It was Margaret Mead who said “Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.

Aristotle once said that, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Even as we impart education to match the advancement in technology and globalization, we march our children ahead with Canossian ethos of moral values and principles. We endeavour constantly to instill these qualities in our children. We pride ourselves to help them grow and develop into sensitive and responsible citizens of the future.

We fortunately have a committed and supportive management, dedicated teachers, caring and co-operative parents, which blend harmoniously to create a child-centric school at Canossa.

May our Foundress and Patroness St. Magdalene of Canossa who said “The heart of Education is the Education of the heart” intercede for us.

Sr. Monica Cardozo (H.M.)
