Education of the youth is in the foundational vision and Charism of the Congregation. The dynamics of Fransalian Education is described in the Constitution Art.nos.36-40. Further, the chariacteristics of the apostolate of education is explained in the General Directory in articles 31 & 32. Our founder, the servant of God, Father Mermier says “the heart of education is the education of the heart”.
Fransalians through the apostolate of Education try to translate the above maxim of our founder into a reality by liberating from ignorance those entrusted to their care and orienting them to seek truth about themselves, God and the world. Our education strives for excellence in all aspects by empowering and enlightening our students to counter the forces of evil by becoming people who commit themselves as liberators from the social, economic and gender inequalities and from the evils of communalism, regionalism, casteism, racism, tribalism and consumerism .They are taught to work against the forces trying to destroy the environment.
In our Fransalian Educational Institutions we strive to provide
God experience for the students through our way of life and commitment to the
Gospel values by living a life of joyful optimism and respect for others
in disinterested self sacrifice. We share with our collaborators especially
teachers, instructors and parents the vision of our apostolate of education.
Faithful to the saying of our founder, Fr.Mermier “true education is opening of the heart rather than the mind”, Fransalian educators take special care of the affective dimension of the life of the young people under our care. In our approach to the young we are sensitive to every individual person, caring and guiding them gently yet firmly. We focus on human formation committed to the welfare of the society and the entire world.
Every Fransalian Education Institution ventures to create a unique Fransalian Culture in our educational ministry.
St. Mary’s English School kinwat is a long cherished vision materialised by Fransalian Education Society, Nanded. It has captured the imagination of Kinwat and built for itself an enviable reputation before its inception. This achievement is due to clear cut vision, goal oriented efforts and ground level execution.
Mary’s English School does not merely emphasise academics but a life of
integrated growth of every child to prepare them lifelong achievers, keen and
creative learners, progressive thinkers, cultural collaborators and above all
compassionate and philanthropic human beings.
We have all along been guided by the saying of our founder Fr Peter Marie Mermier "The heart of our education is the education of the heart." This is the spirit that moves us to work for the cause of Education. The maxim, "the quest for excellence is an endless path" is universally accepted. Numerous students will travel through the portals of our school to achieve such excellence. The end result should not be mere material accomplishment, but a life of love for our neighbours. St. Mary’s English School will remind them what Jesus taught his disciples "Whatever you do to the least of your brothers you do unto God." St. Mary’s English School, Kinwat is established to achieve this ideal. I express my deep gratitude to all those who collaborated to the success of St. Mary’s English School, Kinwat.
