From the Manager’s Pen..... With great pleasure and immense privilege, I congratulate the staff and students of St. Paul’s Academy for their excellent performance. From the bottom of my heart, I really appreciate and thank the hard works of by-gone managers, principals, vice-principals, teachers, students and non-teaching staffs. It is you who carved a good image of St. Paul’s Academy to keep cherish able memory to everyone. As Catholic institution nurtures wholeness of person, so education is life- itself. Each student is unique in the light of knowledge, but every teacher has potentiality to make children someone in the society at large. As unity is strength so knowledge is power. Students and teachers reciprocate their rewards through education. Children become professionals only through education, motivation and inspiration that lead students from darkness to light and from ignorance to knowledge. None of the achievements can be aimed at, unless teachers and pupils have single-minded commitment and dedication. Education brings success in any endeavour that depends on the degree to which it is an expression of our true selves. I just remind the quotes of Michael Jackson ‘Heal the World’. The song is quite true. It asks every student and teacher to make the world a better place to live in. The world requires real citizens of moral integrity. Let us think of roles of students, teachers and parents. In the words of APJ. Abdul Kalam, ‘your best teacher is your last mistakes’. It is students who think and do differently. St. Paul’s Academy too does a lot to the children in the thoughts of John Mason Brown ‘.... knows what is the best purpose of education; not to be frightened by the best but to treat it as part of daily life’. Let students and teachers act together as if it were impossible to fail. I finally express my best wishes and regards to students, staff and parents to remain on ‘good virtues and honesty lie in good education’. Let us be the students who have nostalgia for their institution. Fr. GNANAMUTHU, MANAGER.
