Principal's Message

The launching of the SMC Web Site in the 145th year of its existence in the educational map of India in the city of Allahabad is indeed a significant event for the entire SMC Family. Our sacred history traces back to the foundation of the Congregation of Jesus in 1609 by our Venerable Foundress Mary Ward, believing firmly that” Women in time to come will do much”. Walking in her footsteps our pioneering sisters established schools in India in order to cater to the education of girls, with special emphasis on moral, spiritual and intellectual formation.

In an environment that fosters the values enshrined in the Constitution of India, supported by team work, community service and environment consciousness, we aim at assisting our students to grow into persons of competence, conscience, compassion and commitment. Helping them to be rooted in the values of Love, Justice and Peace we strive to enable them to contribute greatly towards the radical transformation of present day social conditions.

Inspired and guided by our Motto, Spe Labor Levis - ‘Hope Lightens Work’, the entire SMC family- the Management, the Teachers, the Parents, the Students and the Supportive Staff – enters into a loyal and trusting collaboration for the fulfillment of our aim of ‘Education for Social Transformation’. Together we seek to form truly educated women who motivated by genuine love and spirit of service, are empowered to build a Civilization of Love, Peace and Solidarity in our world.

I take this opportunity to acknowledge the contribution of all who have helped in the growth of this institution from its humble beginning in 1866 to its present stature and have left their imprint on the sands of time in the SMC family. Treasuring this rich legacy which is ours today and carrying the Torch of Hope in our hands let us do our best to be awake and alert to the needs of our time. May we re- dedicate ourselves to the ever relevant Mission of Education handed down to us by Mary Ward and fulfill it in new ways, offering fresh Hope to the young entrusted to our care today.
