Our School Campus
Welcome to the Official Website for St. Andrews High School. “UBI CRUX IBI LUX” is the motto of St Andrews High school which means “where there is a cross, there is light”. The cross that the students carry is heavy but with the warm light of appreciation, the burden can be joyously carried.
Mission Sunshine opens the black stone building of St. Andrew’s School to appreciation because where there is appreciation there is sunshine. Mission sunshine logo, designed by Mr. Francis H D’Sa , is in chalk because appreciation has to be learnt & imbibed by everyone @ sign is adopted as the symbol of appreciation. It is artistically designed to shine like the sun.
Every time, a participant comes across @, he/she is reminded of Mission Sunshine’s objectives. The red smile in the word ‘Sunshine’ is the smile that appreciation generates. We have also drawn inspiration from a line in the film, P.S. I love you, “Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.” Wow! Wonderment is the willingness to be surprised by life. It is from wonderment that appreciation springs. Mission Sunshine exhorts: the ‘WOW’ MAGIC…spread it!
Our school is proud to be the first in the suburbs of Mumbai to have an astro-turf ground for both hockey and football. Students can use the facilities for developing their sporting skills.
Our library’s objective is to inculcate the habit of reading; children are introduced to the library and books right from the Kindergarten level. They realize the joys of reading as well as the importance of books, in their formative years itself.
This chapel is located on the 1st floor of the main school building. It provides a place for quiet meditation and calm.
To further opportunities for our boys to enhance their English language skills through audio visual means, the language lab was founded.
The students have access to various modules that are pre-loaded for them. Classes are open to students once a week.
With donations from our Alumni, we were able to start a Robotics Labs to ignite the imagination of our students in this new field. The students are provided with kits which they can use to create their robots. These robots are then programmable using software. Students have access to the lab once a week.
The purpose of the Solarium is to be the nerve center for spreading sunshine. We have a dedicated coun”solar” Aditi Nadkarni who works with the students through the course of the year to ensure that they are on track to achieve their goals. Fr. Joseph Pimenta too spends time as a coun”solar” and mentor of the program.
At St. Andrews the emphasis is on quality education and this tradition is reflected very clearly in our Computer Department also. We have made it a point to keep our children abreast with the fast paced changes in the computer world, rather than making them follow the stereo-type computer syllabus. We want to nurture creative and thinking minds that are forever exploring new realms in the computer arena.
Realising that each child is blessed with a unique set of talents, the Expressive Art room is meant to ignite the creative imagination of our boys.
The game room is most often utilized during the rainy season, when playing outdoors is not possible. Nothing like a game of foozball, carom or table tennis to blow off some steam.
We have 2 Science Labs. A student’s inquisitive mind is not satiated easily. Doing things practically is one way of satisfying his curiosity. Our laboratories are just right for children starting out to find common ground between theory learnt in class and its practical application. Our Science Labs are spacious, airy and well-equipped.
