The Emblem & Motto
EMBLEM: THE LIT DIYA OR LAMP
The specialty of a lit lamp is that it gives light to everyone who
comes. St. Joseph’s School is like a lamp lit on a mountain top,
leading everyone to light of knowledge by dispelling the darkness
MOTTO: LEAD ME TO LIGHT
Bible begins with the book called Genesis where it is written:
“Then God said, Let there be light.’ And there was light.” God is
light and there is no darkness in him. God is the source of light.
Writing about Jesus, St. John says:”The true light which enlightens
everyone was coming into the world”. Jesus Himself says, “You
light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid
“LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE”.
Each person becomes a light to the world If he obtains right
knowledge and dispels the darkness of ignorance. The process
of learning from childhood to adult age, allow one to remove
darkness from one’s life and come into the light, to become
gradually an enlightened person.
St. Joseph’s School will begin process of learning for little children
in KG and accompany them to higher classes: So we pray with
our ancient sage: LORD, LEAD ME FROM DARKNESS TO
