OUR ETHOS:

Though the thrust of this Catholic School is the education of Catholic children in Catholic faith and principles; children of other faiths, irrespective of caste or creed, are also welcomed.

As a Catholic school it is a learning community which has Christ as its central motivating force. His values, as expressed in the Beatitudes, and summed up in the virtues of love, sincerity, justice and freedom, create an atmosphere that children of all social backgrounds, even the most deprived; and of all religions, feel welcome and accepted in its loving warmth - that cherishes even as it challenges.

The school strives toward the all-round growth and development of the students to their fullest potential, spiritually, intellectually and physically. It guides them in the development of a sound value system and strives to inculcate in them a deep love and appreciation for their culture and country. At St. Anthony's we create an atmosphere in which the students will find scope, within their own cultural milieu, to reflect on their lives and to develop not only in knowledge and skills but also in that wisdom which is the fruit of life and its lessons.

The education imparted is characterised by thoroughness, high principles and freedom. The students are helped to grow in responsibility, self-reliance and maturity so that they find meaning and purpose in their lives and are inspired to live and work for building a just and fraternal society. Hence, the idea of service is set before them so that they are trained to be concerned for others, to be aware of their needs, to make sacrifices when necessary and to share what they have with the less privileged. Efforts are made to instill a sense of community rather than a spirit of competition.
