Dear Parents, Teachers and Students
Change is a desirous thing and all us want change in life in one or the other way.
Education is one field where educationists, parents and students constantly look
for change with respect to evolving contexts and challenges. Michael Fullan, a noted
educationist talks of three areas where change could occur: the possible use of
new materials (curriculum materials and technologies), the possible use of new teaching
approaches and the possible alteration of beliefs. St. Xavier’s with a change in
leadership looks forward to carry ahead these notions and the Ignatian legacy of
‘MAGIS’. This change has to occur in practice where we do our best to “attack incoherence”
or “inertia”in the teaching-learning process. As we begin this new academic session
it is my earnest desire that all the three stakeholders, namely, teachers, parents
and students empower one another and strive diligently to foster excellence and
gain maximum academic achievement. May the glorious legacyof St. Xavier’s with its
motto “For God and Country” propel us to shine forth in all our endeavors.
Fr. A. Christu Savarirajan, SJ
