Discipline and Control are two different ideologies. While discipline is beautiful, control is ugly; Discipline is understanding, and Control is suppression. Needless to say that we at Loyola instill a clear sense of discipline in our children, because controlling them would mean robbing them of all that they have to offer to this world.
The word discipline comes from discipulus, the Latin word for pupil. In fact, it is also the word of the modern word known as ‘disciple’, which defines a person as someone who is willing to learn. At Loyola International School, we understand that instilling habits by way of explanation and example is by far more valuable than trying to force students into inculcating them. Our aim is to nurture a sense of responsibility in the students so that they themselves understand what they must do and how they must behave in different circumstances. Bestowing them with duties and responsibility gives them a feeling of importance and belongingness which in turn drives them to be the best and do the best they can. Carrying out their duties successfully develops in them a sense of pride and self-confidence. The Emblem of Loyola International School is also thoughtfully designed to represent what we stand for. Taking from the phrase, “Tree of knowledge and Wisdom” we know and propagate the belief that all things must have good roots. Only knowledge &wisdom can help our students to embrace the motto “Be The Light” The ‘L’ in the top left section of the emblem is much like a growing vine. If symbolizes the root. Students studying in Loyola International School are growing here and have a sense of ‘Loyalty’ and ‘Belongingness’ to the institution.
The ‘Ink Pot’ in the lower left section, represents the school and its faculty as a resource, into which the students dip and get the necessary nourishment for growing with able minds and bodies. The ‘Quill’ or a pen in the mid section represents the invaluable inputs from the students who study here at Loyola International School.
At the bottom right section of the emblem is the image of a ‘candelabrum with a lit Candle on each level’. They symbolize the future of our students. Seeing that every individual has a different capacity for different things and knowing that no two students are the same, we endeavour to groom each student to be the best in their capacity, as well as always spreading light wherever they go. The ‘Stars’ in the lower right section also have a similar message: No matter how big or small, you should always strive to be star.
The ‘Yellow’ colour in the emblem is the colour of ‘Glory’, with glory being the bench mark for the quality expected in each endeavour.
The ‘Blur and Grey’ colours symbolize the clear skies and the clouds one faces often in one’s life. This is to make our students see that with the good times in life’s journey, there will always be bad times. This is why keeping oneself prepared to swim against the current is an integral part of growing up. We would like to close this chapter by stating that we would like everyone to know that at Loyola International School, we leave no stone unturned when it comes to searching for new and better ways to groom our students. We strive to make the atmosphere fun and enjoyable while simultaneously honing an environment that keeps students interested in learning.
