Nirmal Bethany School, managed by the Bethany Fathers, is a leading and sought after school in Kalewadi, Pune, for its quality of education and discipline. The motto of the school, ‘Truth will set you free’ is a biblical truth, which is the foundation of the education imparted in this institute. “Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man”; the wise words of Swami Vivekananda are in line with this motto of Nirmal Bethany. The growth of this institution from its humble beginning to its present stature of more than 3000 students and 101 staff is the proof of the acceptance and appreciation of the local community to the efforts of the school towards this aim.
We now live in a world that is obsessed with the pursuit of wealth and pleasure; even the pursuit of education has been reduced to this obsession. But the truth is that ”Gold there is, and rubies in abundance, but lips that speak knowledge are a rare jewel.” says the Bible (Proverbs 20:15). We see this fact reiterated by the famous poet Thiruvalluvar in his famous work ‘Thirukkural’ in couplet no. 400; “Learning is the true imperishable riches; all other things are not riches”. Hence even as we impart education to match the advancement in technology and globalization, we march our children ahead with Nirmal Bethany’s ethos of moral values and principles. We endeavor constantly to instill these qualities in our children. We pride ourselves to help them grow and develop into sensitive and responsible citizens of the future. We, fortunately, have committed and dedicated administrators, teachers and staff, caring and co-operative parents who in unison strive towards the goals of Nirmal Bethany. I would like to place on record my appreciation and gratitude towards them all.
I congratulate the entire team for their hard work and dedication that has made everything possible. I pray for that God may bless each one of our endeavors and us.
V.Rev Dr. Jose
