As the school enters its 29th year of existence, we rededicate ourselves to the task we had undertaken, at the very inception, i.e.to be torch bearers to the world in everything we do, be it in the pursuit of excellence, as well as setting standards of public morality and principled conduct.
1. Fr. Agnel School perceives each of its students, as free men and women of our pluralistic society, who through their thought processes and human engagement contribute towards a more integrated, rational, egalitarian and caring society.
2. Fr. Agnel School students will be confident and life-long learners, responsible for their learning, risk-takers and through their positive efforts contribute towards the growth of the community they belong.
3. They will be required to acquire the ability to do complex thinking and problem solving, and the ability to qualitatively improve products and processes that affect them and their community.
4. Fr. Agnel School's entire educational engagement will be focused on Content - what they learn:-
Performance - what they are able to do, and
Engagement - how they influence the communities they belong to.
Our school’s crest, depicting our school mascot a Lesser Crested Tern (commonly known as seagull) "Sterna Bengalensis", in flight, rightly portrays what has always been a passion with us, that we will fly our own way, even if it be alone, in the pursuit of academic as well as human excellence, towards building and contributing for a better, brighter, more concerned and more caring society.
All Agnelites will identify themselves with these two major attitudes, i.e. think big, think different (BRAVE MINDS) and act and live in concern for others (BIG HEARTS).
FR. AGNEL SCHOOL desires that teachers and learners actively engage themselves in achieving the standards of learning that will equip our students with processes of learning skills, in a 21st century context, through a 21st century content and achieved through 21st century tools.

The world is beautiful because there are children and it is often stated that we know that God still loves us because we still have children. This is more than a cliché’, because children give the world the joy, the strength and the forbearance that makes this world a better place. The Family and the School converge on this most important point, the care and concern of our children and
the need to help chart their future. What is the child's most important need?
Surely, Love, Nutrition, Security, Shelter, Education and Opportunity are essential. Nutrition and shelter in the realm of physical wellbeing are nonnegotiable. Once these are provided, everything else: love, security, education, opportunity become indispensable, which is much beyond essential.
The core and sum total of all our responsibility towards children is based on how they are provided the essentials for living quality lives, such as love, security, etc. The underlying element of all these is the need to teach children to think. And it is here that we fail most often and most critically.
If our children are provided all the material and social needs and facilities but if we have not taught them to think and think critically, how will our children be able to live quality lives? Many years ago, I happened to watch a movie (accidentally) called, if! remember right, called "Chahat". Since I rarely watch movies I was pained and shocked at the violence and bloodshed in it all without any reason or function. Later on, I was dumbstruck at a movie which was being screened in a bus, which I understand is very popular, where Salman Khan is viciously violent, ruthless, etc.
When our children watch such movies, which are so commonly available and loved by all, what is our perception about how our children are going to react to such scenes? Does anyone think that we will be able provide love, security and opportunity to our children to live quality lives, if our children grow up in familiarity with violence, pain caused to others, hate or discrimination?
What our children, learn from those depictions? Since they are gory, they are surely bound to leave lasting impressions in the mind of our kids. How do we provide our children security, love and education in these and millions of other situations where our kids are exposed to violence in media, in real life and even at homes?
Violence is primarily a mind issue. It begins how you learn to think, think well, and think well about others. In the western world it is known as liberal thinking, but truly speaking, it is right thinking, that belongs to the core our traditions in India on which the Bhagvad Gita and Upanishads are based.
Our first and most important duty towards our children other than nutrition and shelter is the duty to teach to think right, and it means right from understanding your neighbor that you do not feel inclined to like, being kind to the person who is less educated than you, and trying to appreciate what others are doing, but not able to understand. That truly will be your best contribution to
make a strong and dependable man or woman.
