The world-famous Political theorist, Benjamin R Barber once said “I don't divide the world into the weak and the strong, or the successes and the failures, those who make it or those who don't. I divide the world into learners and non-learners.” What distinguishes learners from non-learners is that; learners discover new ways and means to rediscover themselves even when they are pushed to the wall, whereas non-learners operate from a fixed mindset.
Jesuits who are known over the centuries for the quality education started to venture into the interior places of North Karnataka in early nineties. Loyola CBSE School in Sindagi is one such initiative taken by the Jesuits of Bijapur and Karnataka. Jesuit education aims at the total formation of each individual within the community which implies physical education in harmony with other aspects of the educational process. It insists on individual care and concern for each person emphasizes activity on the part of the student and encourages lifelong openness to growth. It is to help our students to rediscover their abilities and grow even when they are confronted with many odds. We want to motivate our students to the level of growth, rebound from setbacks and rediscover who they are. It is a school with differences. Jesuit education is always focused on character building to make children with the values of nation building and to become agents of change.
Sindagi CBSE School has a beautiful campus with a beautiful building with all the modern facilities for learning and a big playground. The school gives plenty of opportunities to rediscover themselves and varieties of possibilities throughout the year to discover and grow. Our wish is that many more children make use of these facilities and opportunities to shape a better future and to build a vibrant society.
