From the Principal’s Desk

Namaste and welcome to St. Xavier’s School, Godavari.

 “Walking with the Excluded,” is the theme of this academic year. The world today is going through a tremendous change. Covid-19 pandemic threatened us and it is still threatening to wipe us out from the face of the earth. We have somehow managed to keep ourselves safe and active, but sadly many of our loved ones could not survive this tragedy. We, humankind, have been caught up in the whirlpool of nature’s response to our way of life.  Covid-19 pandemic has forced us to rethink of the way we have been living, we are forced to shut ourselves in small areas, we are forced to let go of so many of our entertainments, and we have been forced to think of our actions. After the Covid 19 shock the entire world is taken up with AI technology. AI is used in almost all the fields today. How do we use it for welfare of the general society is a big challenge.

The Society of Jesus has come up with the four Universal Apostolic Preferences: a) Showing the way to God. b) Walking with the Excluded. c) Journeying with the Youth and d) Caring for our Common Home.

This year we chosen the theme, “Walking with the Excluded”; it basically means walk with the poor, the outcasts of the world, those whose dignity has been violated, in a mission of reconciliation and justice.

In our day today life we need to look for the people, situations where we can feel and see this idea of “excluded”, left out. There is a saying, ‘Charity begins at home’; can we look for this idea from oneself, at home, in the class, in the school, in the surroundings and in the nature?

Can this idea provoke us, challenge us to see the opportunities to reach out to the unreached, left out or neglected.

St. Xavier’s School, Godavari has already celebrated its 70th years of dedicated service in Nepal in the field of quality education. We have seen the changes which has taken place in these 70 years in education sector. We still need to do a lot in Nepal. Education today must focus not only in the collection, compilation and reproduction of knowledge but also, perhaps more so, in right perspective, right viewpoint and right understanding of what we experience and learn. Education should not produce intellectual monsters or mechanical individuals but it should aim at creating Conscientious, Competent, Committed and Compassionate human beings. Education must not only aim at producing candidates for job market but also aim at creating skilled people with moral standing, people who uphold humanity, who emanate hope, and who radiate love.

These above aims of education could only be fulfilled when we—state, authorities, parents, teachers, school administration and students—work together with this vision. Now is the time that we change our mindset regarding education and its purpose. We must use our thinking to make this world a better place to live for all creatures.

Let us transform ourselves, let us mend our ways and let us make the future of our children secure!

May God bless us and give us wisdom!

 Live for God, Lead for Nepal
