Spiritual Hints

Attitude to God

  • Remember always that we have been created in order to love and serve God, our Creator, and that all learning and wealth in this world amount to nothing without the fear of God on which our temporal and eternal welfare depends.
  • Give glory to God for whatever learning you have for He is the Author of everything good in you. Do not gloat or be puffed in your ability but consider it as God’s gift to your personality.
  • Give yourself to the practice of virtue while you are young. The curtsies to be cultivated most are modesty (purity), humility, obedience, kindness & respect for every being.
  • By modesty is meant, a proper and decent manner of speaking and acting. This virtue is one of the best ornaments of our age in all human relationships.
  • Avoid every kind of sin, especially four kinds of evils should be particularly eschewed:
    (a) the taking of the name of God in vain;
    (b) impurity in thought, word or deed;
    (c) stealing and telling lies; and
    (d) all kinds of sexual aberrations.
  • Any encumbrance of these evils draw down God’s anger upon us. But if we keep away these evils from us, God will never fail us with His blessings.

Attitude towards Teachers

  • All should look upon their school-mates as brothers/sisters and upon their teachers/superiors as mothers/fathers.
  • Respect every teacher whether of your own class or otherwise. Be grateful towards those who taught you in the past. Show your teachers those exterior signs of reverence to which they are entitled, such as greeting them whenever you meet them.
  • Be convinced that your teachers deeply feel their serious obligation of promoting your welfare in the best way they possibly can, and that in advising, commanding and correcting you, they have nothing else in view than your own good.
  • After piety, study is most praiseworthy. Therefore, your first occupation must consist in doing the tasks assigned to you by your teachers.
  • Always rise when your teachers enter the class and again when they leave. If they delay in coming, do not make any noise, but wait for them in your places in silence reviewing your lessons or reading some good books.
  • During the class avoid whispering or interrupting.
  • Move gracefully and silently from the class room to playgrounds, labs, hall etc. and return in the same manner.

Attitude towards School-Mates

  • Strive to edify your school-mates by your good examples all times. No sermon is more efficacious than good example.
  • Never make fun of those who are weak in their studies or not so quick to grasp their lessons. Let there be no ridiculing of anyone on account of his/her physical defects. What you laugh at or despise in others may someday befall on you also. Be always friendly with one another in and outside the school.

Behaviour at School

  • To write or draw on the blackboard (except when called upon to do so), to write words offensive to anyone, to spoil walls or maps or anything else are acts absolutely to be avoided.
  • Take great care of your text-books, blank books and other belongings on your own. Beware of appropriating your neighbour’s property even if it be the smallest thing. Should you happen to find a lost article ensure depositing it at once to the teacher/office.
  • Keep the floor clean by allowing no paper or ink to fall on it.
  • Cleanliness and purity of soul are reflected by a clean and neat exterior.

Behaviour Outside School

  • Speak no ill of your school-mates or of the discipline or management of the school.
  • Always speak well of your school and of your teachers.
  • Students are reminded that the school is judged by their conduct. Therefore students are responsible to the school authorities not only within the school but for their general behaviour outside also.
  • English shall be spoken at all times within the school premises by the students and teachers.
