50 years of producing strong women


Education is the power that helps us emerge from darkness to light. At St Mary’s School they believe that educating a girl is empowering a woman, a family, a community, a nation and thus the world. They have stood strong in what they believe in and have given excellent products. Celebrating 50 years of committed girl child education, St Mary’s School organised the closing ceremony of the Golden Jubilee Celebration at the St Xavier’s on November 27. Crown Princess Himani graced the occasion and presented a token of appreciation. The programme comprised of cultural dances and songs that captivated the audience but the dance drama ‘Girl’s education: A journey into social transformation’ stole the show. It was well presented and the students did a wonderful job.

It was much appreciated and received loads of applause. Overall the students put up a wonderful show, which was not only entertaining but enlightening too. The school was established in 1955 and is under the management of the Sisters of the Congregation of Jesus. Since its inception the school has been educating girls so that they can be empowered and bring about that transformation which will help society, nation and world at large. “We have inculcated the sense of justice, religious tolerance and compassionate love to the students and have taught them to appreciate God’s creation and value life and help then face challenge in life,” says Sister Edwina.
