The source of inspiration
The school is named after St. Vincent Pallotti, (1795-1850) “The Patron”,
a Roman Catholic Priest, who through his profound spiritual life and his
service to the humanity, had a considerable influence on the history of the
world of 19th century. He lived in a time in which the foundations of the
modern world and of a new socio-political order were laid. The turbulence
of Napoleonic period, French revolution, publication of the “Communist
Manifesto”, the liberal tendencies, and the development of mass printing
were some of the events which characterized the times of Pallotti. In the face of such problems, Pallotti directed his attention towards reviving faith in God and re-enkindling charity among all people in order to bring peace and harmony in the world.
To resolve these problems Pallotti perceived the necessity for the formation of children and young people and got engaged in to various activities such as :- Night Schools, Elementary Schools, Professional Schools, Agricultural Schools, Art Schools, Industrial Schools, orphanages etc. In this way he tried to counteract the socio-political forces that affected the life of young people and thereby to restore in them the “image and likeness of God.” Besides, he had special compassion for prisoners, soldiers, the sick and the poor. He was also the spiritual director of several Roman Colleges.
St. Vincent Pallotti established the Congregation of the Sisters of the Catholic Apostolate in the year 1838, who are commonly known as the Pallottine Sisters. The good services of the Pallottines spread all over the world and the congregation strives up to the ideals of St. Vincent Pallotti in spreading the flame of charity.
Saint Vincent Pallotti died on January 22, 1850. He was beatified after a century in 1950, and on January 20, 1963, during the Second Vatican Council, Pope John XXIII formally declared him a Saint. According to Pope John XIII, he was “a tireless apostle, director of souls and inspirer of holy enthusiasm among children and youth.”
AWAKE ASPIRE ACHIEVE
A child is like a seed when comes into the hands of the gardener, the teacher. The teacher nourishes and nurtures the seedling into a plant with her tender love and care. Suitable environment and facilities are provided to help the child grow into a well developed tree to give shade to all. Our school with the motto “AWAKE ASPIRE ACHIEVE”, facilitates the child to break open and awaken out of its shell of fear, shyness and hesitation, and encourage him/her to grow in a healthy stress-free environment. The child is empowered with the life skills, knowledge, social and moral values, to enable the child to develop and aspire to achieve its dreams and goals while marching confidently into the world to make it a place of better living.
The unceasing love of God as experienced and expressed by St. Vincent Pallotti is the beacon to our educational institutions which are molded into a unifying force of love to bring about in their staff and students a staunch faith in God and an all encompassing charity. They are spiritually and educationally animated to become integrated persons, Apostles and a Clarion Call to all people irrespective of caste, creed, color and place.
In all our educational institutions of the Society of the Catholic Apostolate the spirit of Pallotti will be the motivating, guiding force. In a continuous awareness of God’s presence, the mission of our educational institutions, through the collaboration of Clergy, Religious and Laity as envisaged by St. Vincent Pallotti, is to prepare all students to realize their unique God given potential through spiritual growth, intellectual excellence, social involvement, emotional integrity, Christian charity and brotherhood. In their education, the staff and students will develop such attitudes as honesty, sincerity, self-discipline, integrity, co-operation and responsibility to become exemplary citizens in a diverse, challenging and evolving world.

“Learning gives Creativity, Creativity leads to Thinking, Thinking provides Knowledge, Knowledge makes you Great” (A.P.J. Abdul Kalam). Yes, it is: – St. Vincent Pallotti School (CBSE), we value every student in our care and it is our aim to provide the best possible environment in which children can succeed. Our School aims to create a supportive and inclusive environment where gifted and talented students are encouraged to explore their potential and achieve their personal best in all aspects of school life. The dedicated faculty members take every care to nurture not only the academic ability of the students, but also devote themselves to the all-round growth of all students. The students attain academic excellence as well lead from the forefront in co-curricular activities too. Students will be challenged and engaged through authentic learning opportunities that inspire them to develop creativity, confidence and resilience to become independent and ethical life-long learners.
We value relationships and connections with the community. We encourage our students to develop respectful relationships with their peers, teachers and the broader community. We instill in our girls a keen social conscience and the capacity to make ethical decisions. We work hard to develop and sustain productive partnerships and connections with the parents, local schools and other institutions. We spare no efforts to make the educational experience of our students meaningful and relevant to the socio-economic needs of the times & to equip our youth to face the challenges of the future for leading the society from the front, while ensuring that at the same time they are enjoying their experience of learning.
We try to build their self-confidence so that they are unafraid to take the risk of attempting new challenges, to help them blossom and grow as individuals and to give them the academic, social and emotional skills to enable them to better realize their true potential, preparing young students, to bloom into adults and become responsible and productive citizens. Every day I have the privilege of witnessing wonderful children achieve this transformation for themselves and emerge more confident and assured of their worth as individuals, helped by the loving and guiding presence of parents, teachers, special needs assistants and other members of the school community.
My very competent team of teachers strive to focus on each and every child, monitor and mentor them, appreciate their achievement and encourage them to overcome their shortcomings. I urge all the teachers to create appropriate, meaningful and participative learning situations, inculcating life skills in the children and appreciating their smallest efforts with all generosity and broadness of vision. It’s a matter of great honour and pleasure to be associated with the school as the Principal and be instrumental to scale it to imprecedent heights.
It is above all else a true sense of community, where each member makes his or her own unique contribution, and experiences the joys and struggles of working and growing together, which makes our School, a truly special place as desired by St. Vincent Pallotti. Wishing all the very best for every endeavor being taken by the Management and St. Vincent Pallotti School. Also my sincere greeting to all of you, students, staff, parents and all visitors of this web site.

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” – Aristotle
The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled. So education is the fire which kindles the mind to bring out the value of life. Education means a lot in everyone’s life as it facilitates our learning, knowledge and skill. It completely changes our mind and personality and helps us to attain the positive attitudes. Change is the end result of all true learning. We must give importance to the education than other targets in life. Better education is very necessary for all to go ahead in the life and get success. It develops confidence and helps building personality of a person. School education plays a great role in everyone’s life.
We all want to see our kids going towards success which is only possible through the good and proper education. Every parent tells their kids from childhood about the importance of education in the life and all the advantages of education to make their mind towards better study in the future Education builds character, moral values and personality of a man. A person of good character and high moral values always respect and take care of others. He is always ready to help those in need.
Everything in life is based on the knowledge and skill of the people which ultimately comes from education. The bright future of the individual, society, community and country depends on the education system getting followed. Education is the first and foremost right of every citizen. Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
