I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness; I will sing the praises of the name of the LORD MOST HIGH (Psalm 7:17).
With God´s blessings, St. Joseph´s Co-ed School has reached a milestone of Pearl Jubilee this year, a glorious saga of three decades.
The theme "Gravel into Pearls" was aptly chosen. Rick Warren says ´God changes caterpillars into butterflies, sand into pearls and coal into diamonds using time and pressure.´ Metamorphosis has taken place in every element of the Co-ed family. The school itself can be compared to a gravel that has transformed itself into a priceless pearl over the last thirty years of its existence. Similarly, each child who is initiated to the school can be compared to a gravel. He has potentials and talents in hidden form. These are activated by nurturing, refining, moulding and shaping them. It takes them fourteen long years to be transformed into priceless pearls.
To celebrate the Pearl Jubilee Year, we hosted several events like Leadership Summit, Plantation of 30 Palm Saplings, Cycle Rally, Archdiocesan Interschool Competitions, Alumni meet and Fete that turned out to be a magnificent success. Our Annual Days –Pearlescent Paradise, Pearlescent Glory and Pearlescent Reverie enraptured the Pearl Jubilee celebrations making it one of the most unforgettable periods in the history of St. Joseph´s Co-ed School. A lot of ground work was done by the staff and students to make the year 2016 a distinctive one in the annals of the school.
It was indeed a beautiful journey. The institution completed a milestone of thirty years, forging ahead with steady determination and clarity of purpose, leaving behind a signature trail of unparalleled dedication and commitment achieving excellence in its creative and academic endeavours. St. Joseph´s Co-ed School has carved for itself a desirable niche in Bhopal.
With a heart full of gratitude, I thank the Almighty and our patron Saint- St. Joseph for blessing us to witness at each turn with everyone playing a key role in the evolution of St. Joseph´s Co-ed School as it stands today.
A special thanks to our former Principals, Managers and Sisters for all the hard work they have put in and being a touchstone for the growth of this institution.
As we conclude the 30th Year of resplendence, I thank all my dear students, teachers, non-teaching staff, support staff and all our well wishers for all their toil, incredible help and support rendered.
May the Almighty bless us all.
