Workshop on Educational Issues Confronting Us Today: Responses and Strategies

Indian Social Institute, Bengaluru in collaboration with Jesuit Education Association of South Asia (JEASA) is happy to organize a workshop on Educational Issues Confronting us today from 7th October to 10th October 2020. This workshop is intended for the benefit of Heads of Educational Institutions, Managers, Correspondents, Principals and Educationists, with special focus on those working in South India.

As people working in educational institutions, we are faced with newer and complex challenges every day. Evidence shows that the Christian educational institutions have played a stellar role in the field of education imparting quality education and promoting all round development of the students. Yet, today, we find ourselves at the receiving end. In these difficult and very challenging times we ask - Is it possible for us to maintain our distinct identity and yet contribute significantly to the building of this nation in the education sector? How can we proactively respond and remain relevant in a changing context amidst the increasing attempts to intimidate and harass us? How could we initiate collective space at South India level for mutual learning, sharing and cooperation?

The experts will guide us in this regard while they deal with significant current challenges and issues. This workshop will offer the participants a platform to share their experiences and challenges as heads/managers/administrators of educational institutions in the presence of eminent resource persons and look at various ways and strategies to respond to those challenges and issues.

Dates: 7th October (arrival by 4 pm) to 10th October (4 pm), 2020

Dear Brothers/sisters/friends

 The situation in the Middle East and in Europe is so alarming. The situation is rapidly slipping out of control. Thousands are fleeing their country and thousands have been trapped in the conflict areas. Refugees have been waiting and political leaders of all the countries are blaming each other. In the midst of all these children and women are the worst victims.

I think as educationists we must be aware of the situation and educate our children to be compassionate. Compassion is one of the components of Jesuit education, along with Conscience, Competence, Commitment and Character.  Can our schools take up Compassion as the theme of the month and have reflections, assembly and other programme based on the Refugee crisis in Europe?

If you need any additional materials we will try to provide. But I am sure you are all well equipped and creative to take up and make it an educative means to make our kids compassionate and sensitive….not to hate others in the name of religion, caste, gender, country, language and ethnicity. Do our bit to make this world a better place now.

Thank you,

With warm regards

JEA SA Secretary

Teachers Day Celebrations in our Schools
How to Celebrate Teacher's DayTeachers are a significant part of everyone's life. They show us the right path and groom us to become a better citizen and a better person. They teach us to face the most difficult challenges of life and get through them, easily.   In all our Jesuit schools we expect all to celebrate this day meaningfully, remembering the great work our teachers are doing to the nation building. Let the day be an experience of good will and genuine appreciation for the love, respect, encouragement, above all friendly accompanyment of Teacher-students in our schools. Wish you dear teachers a very happy and meaningful teacher's Day.....

FRIDAY, 31ST JULY, St. Ignatius of Loyola Day

Dear Members of the Jesuit Family, ​Friday, July 31, marks the feast day of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuit Order.

Ignatius' unique gift to the Society of Jesus and to the Church was his spirituality that invites women and men to integrate learning into a life of faith. Through education, he sought to build better communities for the greater glory of God, with a mission of love, justice and a special concern for the poor, the sick and the hungry. My hope is that our prayer on his feast day lead us to see God, our world, our work, and ourselves in a new way.

On this occasion JEA SA wish you all a very happy LOYOLA Feast! May God bless us all through His beloved saint, St. Ignatius of Loyola.
