We, the sisters of the congregation of Jesus and Mary, serving India since 1842, commit ourselves to the promotion of a more just and humane society in our country. The inspiration provided by our Foundress Claudine Thevenet since 1818, continues to strengthen this commitment.

In the India of today, the pressures of casteism, communalism, poverty and exploitative structures make it imperative to equip our students not only with intellectual skills but also with a set of attitudes imbued with social, moral and spiritual values.

Our commitment to this kind of education is made in order to serve specially the young and, among them, the poor. We will also seek to concretize them of their rights and struggle with them in the face of ongoing oppression and exploitation.

We invite our collaborators, students and parents to work with us realizing our challenging vision of bringing about a New India.

We are essentially an Apostolic Community whose special mission is to make GOD known and loved according to the Charism of our Foundress, St. Claudine Thevenet.
We direct our service of Education to all people, and especially to the young and the underprivileged. We accept responsibility for the development of the child by:
  • PREPARING her/ him to live confidently in a rapidly changing world.
    • To involve herself in the social problems of our times and to be an effective agent for the transformation of society.
  • HELPING her/ him grasp basic human values- to internalize these into her behaviour and to be ever open to the Spiritual.
  • UNFOLDING and ACTIVATING her/ his unique potential equipping her with skills to earn her livelihood, stimulating her creative ability so that she will have an impact on her home, neighbourhood and country.
  • AWAKENING in her a social consciousness and a spirit of availability and ready service at all times and in every sphere of life.
Thus by helping her/ him leave school with principles and ideals which will guide and motivate her through life and help her strive to influence, to share and use that Blessings of her education for the benefit of others.
It is a “FAMILY SPIRIT” that exists in a Jesus and Mary School.
The children must learn to look upon school as an extension of their home and do their best to cherish and preserve in school a spirit of Love and Happy Living.
