The school should become the womb in which the students are nourished and developed in true wisdom. In the IT age, we have various sources for obtaining facts, information and knowledge. But the need is to impart knowledge to our children so that they will be equipped to live wisely, meaningfully and creatively. To fulfill this need, San Thome is trying in its maximum.

The child today is the citizen of tomorrow. Let us in every possible way give the citizens of tomorrow the right ideals and create in him the right attitudes so that the world of tomorrow may be a better world than the world of today.

संगीत:

मानव जीवन संगीत सं ओत-प्रोत होता है, मनुष्य ज्ञानशील जीव है, उसे संगीत से विशेष आनंद प्राप्त होता है। सभी पशु-पक्षियों को भी संगीत से आनंद प्राप्त होता है। मनुष्य जीवन सदा संगीत से अनुप्राणित होता है, वह नाना प्रकार के उत्थान, पतन, हर्ष-विषाद तथा राग-द्वेष आदि द्वंदात्मक भावों का केन्द्र है, जहाँ एक ओर जीवन की जटिल समस्या मनुष्य को चिंतित करती रहती है, वही दूसरी ओर संगीत मनुष्य को सारी चिंता से मुक्ति दिलाकर आनंद की प्राप्ति कराता है।

मानसिक तथा शारीरिक व्यथा से आहत होकर जब मनुष्य अति त्रस्त हो जाता है तब एक मात्र संगीत ही उसकी व्यथाओं का निराकरण करने की क्षमता रखता है। संगीत मानव हृदय तथा बुद्धि को संतुलित रखने में विशेष योगदान देता है, और यह संगीत कला ही है जो मानव को दानव बनाने से रोकती है, जिसकी वर्तमान समय में परम आवश्यकता है। जीवन की उत्कृष्टता के लिए मानव में निम्नलिखित पाँच बातों का होना बहुत जरूरी है:-

1. बच्चों का मानसिक एवं शारीरिक विकास।
2. स्वस्थ शरीर।
3. मन-विचारों का संतुलन।
4. लक्ष्य प्रापित की इच्छा।
5. विषम परिसिथतियों में दृढ़ रहना।

संगीत जीवन में उपरोक्त सभी आवश्यकताओं की पूर्ति करता है, जिसकी प्रमाणिकता आज के वैज्ञानिक युग में सिद्ध की जा चुकी है। संगीत की स्वर लहरियाँ जीवन में उल्लास का अनोखी सृषिट तक ही सीमित नहीं वरन इसका प्रभाव रोग निवारक भी है। शास्त्रीय संगीत के विभिन्न रागों को भिन्न-भिन्न रोगों में अपने चिकित्सकीय प्रभाव के लिए उपयुक्त माना गया है। म्यूजिक थैरेपी में सामाजिक, भावनात्मक, शैक्षणिक एवं शारीरिक उन्नति के लिए संगीत का विधिवत एवं व्यवहारिक प्रस्तुतिकरण होता है। एक मिनट में 60 बीटस का रिदम मनुष्य में सबसे अधिक तनाव घटाता है। अवसाद, अनिद्रा, माइग्रेन, डर और दर्द घटाने में एकाग्रता व याददाश्त बढ़ाने में यह मददगार है। एक स्वस्थ तनाव रहित विधार्थी श्रेष्ठ अध्ययन के लिए अति आवश्यक है। अत: यहाँ यह प्रयास किया जाता है कि विधार्थी संगीत विषय में रूची लेकर मन को शांत व एकाग्र बनाएँ और अपने अध्ययन को श्रेष्ठ कर जीवन को नया आयाम प्रदान करें।

नृत्यकला

कुछ लोगों का मानना है कि नृत्यकला केवल मनोरंजन एवं धन कमाने के अलावा कुछ नहीं है, जबकि वास्तव में हमें नृत्यकला के माध्यम से एक दुसरे की संस्कृति-सभ्यता, वेश-भूषा, रहन-सहन, आचार-विचार, भाव-भंगिता आदि से परिचित होने का अवसर मिलता है।

नृत्यकला सीखने से आध्यातिमक, बौद्धिक, मानसिक, शारीरिक, साहितियक, मनोवैज्ञानिक विकास होता है। इससे शिष्टाचार, यश, ऐश्वर्य व धन आदि की प्रपित होती है। प्रत्येक शुभ कार्य के प्रारंभ में र्इश्वर की प्रार्थना करना भारतीय परंपरा है। नृत्यकला र्इश्वरोपासना तथा मोक्ष प्रापित का सबसे सशक्त माध्यम है। इसे सीखने से मन शांत व कल्पनाशील बनता है जो कि, विधार्थियों के लिए अति उत्तम व उपयोगी होता है।

नृत्य के द्वारा शरीर के सभी अंगों का यथेष्ठ व्यायाम हो जाता है, इससे शरीर के सभी अंग सुडौल, स्वस्थ तथा लचीले बनते हैं जिससे शरीर सदैव स्वस्थ रहता है।

नृत्यकला का साहित्य से गहरा संबंध है। नृत्य के अनेक तोड़े साहितियक होते है। इन तोड़ों के अध्ययन, पठन, मनन से नर्तक साहित्य से जुड़ता है। इस प्रकार एक कुशल नर्तक को संगीत व साहित्य दोनों का अपेक्षित ज्ञान हो जाता है।

इस कला को सीखने से व्यवहार कुशलता व शिष्टता आती है।
