- Principal's Message
“A beautiful thing happens when we start paying attention to each other. It is by participating more in your relationship that you breathe life into it.” – Steve Maraboli.
Dear Parents and Well-wishers,
Welcome to the website of Convent of Jesus and Mary, Chelsea, Shimla. This website gives you an overview of the daily happenings at the school campus and provides you an opportunity to become more acquainted with our school.
Established in 1864, our school continues to impart value based education and all round formation to the students, which help them not only acquire knowledge but to be honest and upright citizens of our country. Adhering to the example of our founder Claudine Thevenet, who witnessed the excruciating pain and misery of the people caused by the French Revolution, we, the Religious of Jesus and Mary earnestly strive towards the empowerment of the poor and the downtrodden with a special preference for the girl child.
Together with a quest for excellent academic results, the institution instils in the students an ardent love for God and neighbours enabling them to be ethically conscious, socially responsible and spiritually integrated persons. In conformity with the school Motto: “Do not yield to evil, but fight against it”, the students are motivated to identify themselves with the needy and the marginalized in the society and to become service minded and benevolent to them.
The words of Margaret Mead “never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world” speak volumes of our loyal and dedicated teachers. Their commitment and self-sacrificing attitude undoubtedly make us feel we are a family. The academic excellence, involvement in co-curricular activities and social commitment of our students are the visible signs of what they receive from the school.
I thank everyone of you who are, in some way or the other, associated with our school and look forward to your continual support and collaboration in our endeavour towards the realization of our goal.Back
