Saint Arnold Janssen (1837-1909) was born on November 5th, in Goch, Germany to a devout catholic couple, one of the eleven siblings. He was a great educationist and philanthropist. As a priest he served as a high-school teacher in mathematics and science.He is the founder of the society of the Divine Word or SocietasverbiDivini (SVD) in Latin, a Catholic International Society whose members are involved in education, social welfare, justice and peace, communication, medical care and spiritual development of the humankind in about 80 countries.

Saint Arnold’s School, a co-educational institution is situated in KalingaViharHIG/489, K-5 Bhubaneswar 751019,a residential area developed by Bhubaneswar Development Authority. Realizing the need for providing quality English Medium education to students of the newly founded residential area, the Society of the Divine Word established the school in the year 2002. Today this tiny seed has grown into an imposing structure adding to the beauty of KalingaVihar-Bhubaneswar surrounded by garden and trees spread over more than 6 acres with spacious ground for further expansion and development of the school.

Saint Arnold’s School became a full-fledged High School in 2013 when the first batch of students was sent up for ICSE Board examinations. It has always been securing 100% result in the ICSE Board Exam since its foundation. In response to the new challenges in the educational environment, the management has come up with a new vision for the school - “Academic Excellence and integrity”. New initiatives by the management are designed to strengthen the academy’s capacity to foster students’ personal and social responsibility.We hope the students who pass out of the portals of this institution would be well integrated persons, synthesizing their mind and heart with high and creative thinking for the molding of a better society.

 Manager’s Message

A very good evening to all!

Distinguished Dignitaries on the dais and off the dais, Fathers, Brothers, Sisters, family members and friends of Saint Arnold’s school, teachers & staff, Ladies and Gentlemen, Media personnel, and my dear children. It gives me great pleasure to extend to you a very warm welcome on behalf of Saint Arnold’s School.

All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them” said Walt Disney, American Entrepreneur. Today, Saint Arnold’s School is considered as one of the best budding schools not only for its academics but for its culture too. And I feel very proud to be a part of such an amazing institution.

The past academic year has indeed been a roller coaster ride. How swiftly and unnoticed time flies! One more year has been added to the glorious saga of Saint Arnold’s school. It has been a time full of opportunities, a time to develop the infrastructure and to refurbish the facilities, build better and lasting relationship with parents and people; it has been a time to meet the modern challenges to provide holistic development of the child with quality and excellence to be good citizens and good individuals.

I will not share with you the achievements of the school as that was presented in the Annual report. But what I wish to say is that I am blessed with a wonderful, talented and cooperative staff without whose help it is impossible for me to guide Saint Arnold’s School to its vision “Academics Excellence & Integrity”.

To bring my message to a close, I wish to thank all who helped us achieve our educational goals. Our school is determined to tackle the exciting challenges posed by many educational institutions of excellence in the city of Bhubaneswar. We will continue to care for and support one another. We will sustain our school’s development and work towards further success in the future. As part of Inaugural speech President Obama said, “Yes, We can”. I too boldly can say, “Yes we can”.

Lastly, I wish that today’s Arnold’s Fiesta 2018 leaves an indelible mark in your memory. Enjoy the evening.



  • Thank you one and all!

 Chief Guest Message

Dear Rev. Fr. Richard Vaz, SVD, Rev. Bro. Elejius, the principal, Rev. Fathers, Rev. Brothers, Rev. Sisters, Dear Teachers, Parents and Beloved Students.

Sincere and Hearty Congratulations to the management, teaching and non – teaching staff and you beloved students, for this beautiful and colorful day! It was possible only because of your bonding to each other. You have left no stone unturned to make this day such a memorable day.

Rev. Fr. Richard Vaz, SVD, in his press release on August 15, 2017 wrote, I quote “Saint Arnold’s School, KalingaVihar Bhubaneswar was founded in 2002 by the Society of the Divine Word (SVD) a Catholic International Society with the sole aim of providing quality, value based education, which has always been securing 100% result in the ICSE Board Exam since its foundation. Congratulations!!!

Again he wrote, “In response to the new challenges in the educational environment, the management has come up with a new vision for the school – “Academic Excellence and integrity”. New initiatives by the management are designed to strengthen the academy’s capacity to foster students’ personal and social responsibility. The school presents a clean, friendly and healthy environment with dedicated, enthusiastic and passionate teachers. It has well-furnished Smart classrooms with CCTV surveillance, well-designed computer and science labs to explore and experiment. For the all-round development of students, the school offers a well-developed sport facility for football, volleyball, basketball, cricket, badminton etc.


CONGRATULATIONS


I feel much privileged and honored to be here on this sacred and significant occasion. I remember from my student days, what Benjamin Disraeli, the famous Prime Minister of Great Britain once had said. “A school should be the place of light, of liberty and of learning”. Agreeing to this great luminary, I humbly submit that a school should be also a loving mother to give birth to future philosophers, great scientists, to eminent thinkers and outstanding statesmen for our country India and the world.

Long ago Thomas Hobbes, a great philosopher of Idealism comprising ethics, secularism etc.has stated that “knowledge is power”. And to Swami Vivekananda, “knowledge is nothing, but finding unity in the midst of diversity”. While, I wish this School to be a source of such knowledge. But at the same time, I wish that it should go a step further and be the source, not only of knowledge. But at the same time, I wish that it should go a step further and be the source, not only of knowledge, but also of wisdom. The Holy Bible says, “Wisdom is more precious than rubies” and that one who has wisdom, has everything on earth and in heaven. Because, as the English poet Tennyson says, “information flows, knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers”. To me, wisdom is immortal.

With these few words, I now wish and pray to God Almighty and in His name I bless this institution to be of World Class learning, to be great source of wisdom. I bless the Teachers, who are the `Drivers’ of this Engine, which is known as St. Arnold’s School, and I bless you, the students, who are the Pistons of this Engine – all of you to be the Role Models for our country and of the world, in the fields of human development and social upliftment with a focus on the precious values of ethics and empathy, intelligence and inclusion as well as harmony and humility, for academic excellence, creative pursuits and skill to be global citizens.. I pray to god to bless everyone to have strong sense of commitment, service and responsibility to transform this institute into an outstanding and significant temple of learning and formation.



  • God Bless you all - !!!
