The Past and Present
St. Mary’s School, Dwarka is a Minority Institution, founded in 1995 by the St. Mary’s Education Society.
Our journey began from a small tenement at Amberhai village, when Dwarka was virtually barren with a predominantly rural background. The students were mostly first generation learners. Under these circumstances the task of education was indeed challenging. It was not just about achieving academic excellence but also about reinforcing the core values. Our curriculum has been clearly designed keeping in mind our vision of an integrated education system.
As the School flourished and scaled new heights, it shifted to the newly built premises at Sector 19, Dwarka in 2003. The School is situated in a pollution free environment with a huge playground and now caters to students up to Std. XII.
In this fast paced world, children face various challenges. It has therefore become imperative to equip them mentally, emotionally and physically to deal with them. The needs of the differently abled and economically deprived students have been an important facet. The school follows an inclusive policy with students from all strata of society as well as children with special needs being integrated into the main stream. The two special wings - ‘Aasmaan’ and ‘Khula Aasmaan’, further facilitate inclusion. The philanthropic ethos of the school has also led to social welfare initiatives like adult literacy and vocational training.
Education, at St. Mary’s Dwarka, is primarily child- oriented. It is an activity-based learning for the young impressionable minds. A well planned curriculum by highly qualified teachers, motivates our students, making them confident and disciplined. Apart from regular subjects like English, Hindi, Maths, E.V.S and G.K., subjects such as Dance, Music, Art and Craft, Drawing, Aerobics, Yoga, S.U.P.W and Physical Education are taught.
St. Mary’s has consciously set itself to remain true to the Founder’s will. The zeal of the teaching staff and the Management’s farsightedness have been very effective in providing holistic education for students.
Late Mrs. Sara Mathew, the Founder of the school along with Late Wg. Cdr. Mathew, the Chairman of the Management Committee was a great source of encouragement for St. Mary’s, Dwarka.
They are greatly missed by all, whose lives they touched in one way or the other.
