Education

Nirmala Education Society, Nirmala province

 “Be shepherds with the smell of your sheep, in the midst of your people like Jesus the good shepherd.” Pope Francis

We, the Ursuline sisters of Nirmala province in the field of education, are deeply motivated by the vision and Martinmissionary zeal of our Blessed Foundress Brigida Morello as she intensely focused on the moral and spiritual formation and upliftment of the young girls of her times. Our policy of education is person-centered, inclusive, and deeply rooted in the Gospel values of Respect for Life, Love, Solidarity, Truth and Justice.

In our educational institutions, we aim at promoting the dignity, self-esteem and full development of each person as all are created in God’s image and are uniquely loved by God. We are respectful of, and engage with people of all beliefs; and encourage the spiritual development of all in their own faith. We aim at harmonizing faith and culture, build a better society and pursue the Common Good.

We provide high quality, holistic education for all young people, so that they develop their full uniqueness and God gifted potential in a climate of joy, freedom, respect, challenge, co-operation and celebration.

In our schools the person and message of Christ find expression in:

  • Communities of Faith, Service, and Prayer;             
  • The enrichment of pupil life – intellectual, physical, spiritual, moral, social and emotional;
  • The promotion of a spirit of charity, social justice, global awareness and concern for others leading to practical outreach and community service programmes;             
  • A culture of tolerance where people of diverse identities are recognized, welcomed, respected and cherished;
  • Listening, mutual understanding, trust, reconciliation, healing and peace;
  • The preparation of pupils to lead fulfilling and purposeful lives which will contribute to the Common Good.

 We aim at the integral formation of our pupils, their parents, and our teaching as well as non-teaching staff. And for this, we organize various types of programmes from time to time.

In this region of our country, as the girls are less privileged and suffer discrimination, we take special care of the girl child which is well reflected in our admission policy of 60:40 ratio (60% girls and 40% boys), and also, in our special emphasis on empowering them to take up leadership at various levels.

In the Province, we have 5 English medium schools and 2 Hindi mediums. We work in diocesan collaboration in 5 schools. Our sisters are tirelessly committed to live our philosophy of Education that sets before us the ideal of educating our students to be spiritually oriented, morally upright, socially concerned and intellectually well informed persons.

“All real Education is the architecture of the SOUL.”   (William Bennett)

 Mother Brigida visualized her sisters as strong women, disciplined, magnanimous and courageous; women of prayer, detached from all that is transitory, whether it be called fame, honour, beauty, power or ambition.

 She conceives of education as “a great service to the Lord,” for which strong and mature personalities are required.  From the foundation, the specific end of the institute is the education of girls in the spirit of catholic religion.

 To inculcate the charism of the congregation and teaching of Catholic Church we strive to have

  • A well planned and creative programme for the schools of the Province/Congregation,
  • An education Commission which is more active and effective,
  • Have special celebrations such as:

Foundress’ Day, Patron’s Day etc.

The world seems to have abandoned the discernment between good and evil. There is a sense of insecurity and mistrust towards everyone. The mistrust seems …
