Principal's Message 2018
"I am indeed glad and feel honoured to become a part of SMCIC family, Lucknow, in its noble mission of ‘Education for Social Transformation.’ At this juncture I gratefully acknowledge the hard labour and strenuous effort of everyone, who nurtured this great institution in the past, to achieve its motto “Effort Spells Success”. Situated adjacent to the RDSO colony Lucknow, this Temple of Learning aims at building vibrant global leaders and conscientious, confident and responsible citizens who will become torchbearers of peace and harmony in this ever-changing world.
According to Rabindranath Tagore “The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence” .We firmly believethat education is a channel that awakens one to his or her full potential. It helps one to become aware of one's own strengths and limitations. Eventually, it leads us to an honest acceptance of ourselves and creates a compassionate heart that is tolerant towards others.
In order to achieve this great dream, a number of curricular and co-curricular activities have been planned and organized for the academic year 2018-19. Together with a team of committed and striving teachers and in partnership with our parents, it is our endeavor to make a positive difference in our society by creating ripples of peace and harmony, competence and compassion in the hearts of our young scholars and thus make this world a ‘VasudaivaKutumbakam’- ONE HUMAN FAMILY where everyone is respected and raised to their God given dignity. May Mother Mary Our Patron, shower her blessings upon us."

"The launching of the SMC site in the 47th year of its existence in the educational map of India in the city of Lucknow is indeed a significant event for the entire SMC family. It began with Mary Ward who belonged to a noble family of England. In 1609 she had a vision to bring about a change in the lives of women.
She believed that ‘women in time to come will do much’. Many young girls followed her footsteps and many educational institutions were established all over the world for the moral, spiritual and intellectual formation of the youth.
We the Sisters of the Congregation of Jesus , aim at training our students to strive for personal excellence in order to take leadership in assisting their fellow citizens to create a just society, where the underprivileged and exploited especially women , children and dalits are restored to their God –given dignity , rights and freedom and thus bring about social transformation.
Inspired by our motto , Effort Spells Success , the entire SMC family-the management , the teachers , the parents , the students and the supportive staff –enters into a loyal and trusting collaboration for their fulfillment of our aim.
I gratefully remember all those who have helped us in the growth of this institution from 1964 to this present day. We do treasure its legacy and we carry the torch of hope in our hands to awaken in all those who come in touch with us the same spirit of service and love. May the aspirations of Mary Ward enable us to move forward to attain the heights of success.
