The academic year 2018 – 2019 is nearing its end and it’s time to reflect on the year gone by. It has been another happy year for all at Loyola.
Last year, Abhishek Agarwal made it to the country toppers’ list in ISC Commerce stream by scoring a whopping 98.25% in the board exams.
Our children continue to bring laurels to the school in various inter school competitions at the local, national and international level.
Our teacher Mrs. Jayanthi Sheshadri bagging the coveted President’s Award was another feather in our cap.
In December the students put up a musical ‘The Kabuliwala – A Multi Lingual Adaptation’ which won the hearts of the citizens of Jamshedpur. The play gave the children an opportunity for experiential learning and cognitive apprenticeship.

IMPARTING EDUCATION THE IGNATIAN WAY
Jesuit Education has always been a trend setter all over the world. It is recognized, appreciated and emulated for the unique way in which it helps transform a student and prepares him or her for work that promotes the common good, while allowing that student to discern his or her vocation in life. This personal transformation in turn leads to societal transformation thereby achieving the larger aim of creating a better world for all. Teachers in Jesuits schools are not mere instructors. They are facilitators and friends, counselors and confidants, mentors and motivators.
The Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm, the philosophy of teaching in Jesuit Institutions, aims at personality development, wholesome growth, and nurturing the children to bloom into men and women for others, people of competence, conscience and compassion who will carve a niche for themselves in the world. Based on the five Principals of Context, Experience, Action, Evaluation and Reflection it nurtures teacher student relationship and encourages innovation in a climate of academic freedom. In Jesuit schools, teachers teach students, not subjects. Children are encouraged to think critically, reason analytically, solve problems and communicate clearly – these soft skills or core skills being the focus of our teaching.
So…. Welcome to Loyola and see the magic for yourself !

Greetings on the occasion of the spiritual and joyful festive season to one and all!
You have been kept abreast of the happenings in our school through my occasional ‘letter to the parents’ as well as through the local newspapers. The joy, enthusiasm and appreciation that you have shared with us on the occasion of the inauguration of our Fasy auditorium were a great source of encouragement to each one of us. The little ones in our Junior Section have a beautiful children’s park to play and enjoy themselves. Our students have been bringing laurels and accolades to our school by their stellar performances in various competitions in local, regional and national levels. Probably this is the first time that our school reached the national finals of the Frank Anthony Debate competition in both Junior and Senior Categories and won third and second prizes respectively. This year too Loyola has been ranked number one in the whole of Jharkhand, but we have miles to go before we wrest the same in the national level.
“The old order changeth yielding place to new and God fulfills himself in many ways
Lest one good custom should corrupt the world.”
As we usher in the summer break, we also usher in change in the Loyola Management. We Jesuits believe in regularly rediscovering and reinventing ourselves while simultaneously ensuring that Jesuit tradition and ethos continue to be preserved. The changes will ensure there is a fresh approach to running the institution while at the same time ensuring that the values and principles basic to Jesuit education are intact.

The academic year is coming to a close and we have much to thank the good Lord for and much to reflect upon.
As usual our students have displayed all round excellence – in academics, co-curricular activities, sports and social service. The ICSE and ISC results gave us much cheer about. A few lucky ones made it to the IITs, a few got into Universities in the United Kingdom and the United States of America and the rest have made it to premier universities around the country. With every experience we gain some learning. The feedback we get from the students who seek admission in premier colleges is that apart from mere academics, a lot of stress is laid on co-curricular activities and leadership skills. Despite colleges coming out with 100% marks as cut-off, they still look for evidence of participation in co-curricular activities. Therefore those who have been involved in these activities stand at an advantage over the others. The students of Loyola are privileged in the sense that they are given infinite opportunities to organize and participate in activities throughout the year. It is disheartening to see many students who are academically bright, hesitate to participate in such activities giving the excuse that they will hamper in their studies. Time management is a must and students must be encouraged by the parents to come forward and make optimum use of the opportunities given to them.
