Mrs. Debjani Ghosh
Principal - St. Joan’s School Newtown
The family environment at home as I was growing up was largely academic because of my maternal grandfather and mother who were both teachers and as a result of this a number of academics visited our house regularly. This helped me develop a keen interest in the working and running of the school from an early age.
We try and inculcate values in our students such as being honest, respectful, compassionate, grateful, caring, forgiving and so on. We work towards teaching them to respect our Indian culture and traditions along with the cultures and beliefs of other nations.
Through our curriculum, we encourage our students to think independently, critically and creatively and embrace a life-long mindset for learning which is portrayed in science exhibitions, practicals and project work.
It is key, to develop a deep understanding across a range of academic disciplines and strive for personal excellence as learners.
We lay emphasis on peer support. Along with teachers students learn to help each other which develops in them the feeling of responsibility and care towards their peers and builds a positive environment for learning.
At St. Joan’s, we acknowledge the role of parents in the all rounded development of our students and lay emphasis on parent engagement in understanding individual student’s needs and identifying areas of development.
Our faculty share a deep commitment to support students achieve their academic and career goals and work towards their holistic development, continuously supporting their individual needs.
As a parent, if you are looking for a school that strives for academic excellence and holistic development and is committed to working with the school in bringing out the personal best in your child, I welcome you to join the St. Joan’s family.
