Education is a purposeful activity directed at achieving certain aims, such as transmitting knowledge or fostering skills and character traits. These aims may include the development of understanding rationality, kindness, and honesty. This purposeful activity is performed by the Management, Teachers, Students, Parents, and the Society at large.
Management provides infrastructures such as various departments as Mathematics, English, Physics, Chemistry, Commerce, Computer Science, Nutrition and Dietetics, Bio-Technology, Business Administration, spatial classrooms, managing personal etc. Teachers equip themselves with the best skills possible and put their heart and soul in transmitting knowledge. The soul of their work should never be barred by their remuneration but be valued by the growth of the students. The students on their part should strive their level best in achieving the goal and serve as supporters and encouragers of their teachers. The attentiveness and eagerness of the students must induce the teachers to work further still and equip themselves with further improvement of their knowledge. The parents play a vital role in this voyage of education. They enrich their children more by their day-to-day life style than by formal teaching. The students live not in the air but in the society. They are coloured and covered by the character traits of the society. The society must be an encouraging factor rather than hindrance.
This institution is named after St. Joseph, the carpenter, a daily Cooley, and protector of Mary, ever a virgin and mother of Jesus. As a daily Cooley, he worked hard and was very faithful in fulfilling the trust that God had on him.
A patron is assigned to a person, institution, and enterprise that they imitate him in their daily life. May St. Joseph, patron of our college, instil into us a love for daily work without any trumpet and be faithful to the trust that our management, teachers, parents, and the society has placed on us.
To achieve this aim of our education and to sharpen our mission we have taken as our motto for this year “To nurture environmental awareness”.
I conclude my message with a quote from Pope Francis’ encyclical letter Laudato Si, on care for our common home. Praise be to you, my Lord through our Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us and who produces various fruits with coloured flowers and herbs. This sister now cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which has endowed her.” (L.Si.1&2) There is a clarion call from Nature, our Mother Earth, that every one of us listen with sympathy and empathy individually and immediately to her cry.
God Bless You.
