It gives me immense pleasure to write this message as we celebrate the completion of 25 years of St. Patrick School, my pet child. As the founder and correspondent, whatever I had envisioned in 1991, inorder to create a perfect school, has come true for the most part.

Thanks to a group of wonderful, dedicated and passionate teaching and supporting staff, as well as the ever commmitted and loyal Advisory Committee members. St. Patrick School has now set standards in the field of Education in a short span of 25 years.

As you all know, this school was founded by a teacher and being managed efficiently by a team of able administartors, experienced teachers and highly resourceful Advisory Committee embers, all of whom follow the motto, Dare and Do.

With God's blessings and relentless support of our students, parents and well wishers of Puducherry, I am confident that St. Patrick School will continue its quest to produce well - rounded, honest, highly disciplined worldclass future leaders of India in every field. Let the march continue from Silver Jubilee to Golden Jubilee, with our Patron Saint, Patrick leading the march.
