31 AugDREAMS, VISIONS AND REALITIES
Dreams are coming true for Loyola Jesuit Secondary School, as we look forward to September 2014 as the date to enrol the first Grade Nine. What was an empty field in Kasungu only one year ago is now a very busy spot with over two hundred workers building classrooms, library and IT rooms, dormitories, administration offices, kitchen and dining room, conference hall, sports fields and so much more.
Here is a picture that shows our Administration Block already half-up – check with us very soon to see the final building!
But Jesuit education goes on in more than physical buildings. And so already preparation is being made to assure that students, teachers and staff will all experience an environment that promotes excellence in achieving the vision and mission of LJSS.
It’s good therefore to just repeat that vision and mission, so that all of us – planners and builders, workers and donors, future students and teachers – are seriously aware of the contribution LJSS wants to make to Malawian society:
Our vision is a community of Loyola Jesuit Secondary School graduates who are people of conscience, competence, compassion and commitment who are aware of their responsibility to transform Malawian society under the guidance of the Christian values of a faith that promotes justice.
Our mission is to provide secondary education to young Malawian women and men that embodies the characteristics of Jesuit Education of intellectual and spiritual excellence, preferential option for the less privileged, curriculum development that includes life-skills and character development, and community service responsibilities for all students and staff to meet needs in our surrounding environment.
