About Our School
Devamatha CMI Public School, named after the Mother of God
was founded in 1995. It is run by the Devamatha Public School Trust,
formed by the members of the Devamatha Province of the Carmelites
of Mary Immaculate (CMI), the first and the largest indigenous religious
congregation of India.
CMI EDUCATION POLICY STATEMENT
We, the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate, after the example of our
Founder St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara, consider education as an integral
formation of the human person for the fulfilment of his/her individual
and social responsibilities.
Our educational endeavours aim at forming leaders who are
intellectually competent, spiritually mature, morally upright, psychologically
integrated, physically healthy and socially acceptable; who will
champion the cause of justice, love, truth and peace and who are ever
open to further growth.
The secret of the success of our educational institutions is a
community of teachers who are committed to their vocation, professionally
competent, morally upright, just and human in dealings, and
who grow in the true vision of education.
We aspire towards creating a just and humane society where dignity
of the human person is respected, where unjust social structures
are challenged, where our cultural heritage of ahimsa, religious harmony
and national integration is upheld, and where the poor and the
marginalised are specially taken care of.
We have to reach out to the families, primarily of the students, to
assist them in their needs, to share in their joys and sorrows, and to
help them experience love and freedom so that the students realize
that our educational institutions are an extension of their homes.
Our institutions are open to all students irrespective of caste and
creed; they are accepted and cherished as they are and are helped to
grow in their cultural, social and religious traditions. As they are privileged
to be in our institutions, they will also have the right to get acquainted
with the person of Jesus Christ and His Gospel. Being institutions
established and administered by and for a minority community
based on religion, they will give preference to Christians in admission
and appointments and have a special concern for the faith formation of
the Christian youth.
Our institutions have to be open to society at large by making their
resources available for the ongoing education and non-formal teaching.
For the realization of this CMI goal of education, we expect
students, parents and teachers to share this vision and to co-operate
with us whole-heartedly.
