From Principal's Desk
The college takes its motto to be progressive and distinctively unique in terms of holistic development of each student in its true sense. Our students have witnessed success in every field, be it academics, sports, music, dance, dramatics or debate. The college has strengthened its resources, has built upon its infrastructure and opened-up new landscapes of growth where children can excel with their creativity and exercise their imagination in myriad ways. It is an institution blessed with a sprawling green campus, culture and values which aim at perfecting life skills among learners.
The environment of the college is conducive to student- centric learning- where we believe in the blooming of the young minds in their own individual ways. All the teachers are highly qualified, young, enthusiastic and devoted to the welfare of their students. The teachers do not merely teach, they aim at building the future of this country, one class at a time.
With the collective efforts of the students, staff and parents and our management (CMI), we are certain that we will steadily achieve the cherished goals. We ardently feel that our students must get all the opportunities to showcase their potential in a secure and stimulating environment. I value and appreciate the generous support and cooperation extended by the parents in all our activities paving way for achievements, appreciation and accolades, thus making it a more vibrant canvas of Christ PU College, Bengaluru.
With warm regards,Yours sincerely,Fr. Peter M.V, Principal
Our FounderSaint Kuriakose Elias Chavara (1805-1871) founded the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI). His vision of “Education for All” is manifest in our institution. He was a great educationist and held a deep respect for learning. Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara was a visionary, an educationist and a social reformer of the 19th century, whose life was dedicated to the emancipation of society from discrimination, ignorance and oppression. He opened schools for all regardless of caste, creed and gender. He established printing presses to publish books; he built homes for the poor and worked for the empowerment of women. Perhaps, he took the roads seldom taken. Even today, we follow Saint Chavara’s path which continues to motivate many to venture into the impossible. He strived to build a community based on the fatherhood of God and brotherhood of humanity. Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI), the first indigenous religious congregation of India, with a membership of around 3000, renders its service to humanity in educational, social, health care and other activities aiming at an integral development of the society. He was a champion of social reform and founded the first Catholic Sanskrit School in 1846. He also established seminaries for education and formation of the clergy, a publishing house, a home for the dying and the destitute as well as schools for general education.
