Creane Memorial High School
It is a Catholic institution, established and run by the Catholic Archdiocese of Patna. It is named after late Father James Creane S.J., the first Priest-in-charge of Gaya. It was Father Schmidt who had taken the initiative to construct the first school building in 1953. Till 1991, education was imparted to the students upto class VII. Feeling the genuine need of the people, the then Archbishop, Most Rev. Benedict J.Osta, was kind enough to upgrade the school to Class X. The school got affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education in the year 1994. The school was upgraded to Senior Secondary level in 2004.The school was again added with Creane Kids Galaxy, the motherly home for kids in January 2005. Thus, we have a complete unit of education from Pre-School to +2 standard today.
OUR VISION, MISSION AND GOALS
Unemployable graduates, spending before earning problems turning into crises….. Dear students, become not just pass-outs/drop-outs but ‘Designers’ – people who design their future in the first place and ‘Contributor’ to society’s design to improve quality of life in general.
I wish – teachers would become perpetual learners gathering more and more information from primary sources than lean heavily on unsubstantiated floating news. Teacher enrichment programme in the school and educational trips are designed keeping this in mind.
Parents, please become stake-holders and not mere by-standers in the schooling of your ward. Make your homes ‘Homes of learning’ than free board and lodge centres. May children learn to spend judiciously from you.
Students, I am proud of your performance both in scholastic and co-scholastic areas. Your outstanding performances have brought many laurels to school. Creane Utsav – 2018 would remain as an item to be beaten for a long time to come. Congratulations to one and all who worked for its success on and off the stage.
Change is a sign of growth and vitality. Along with students, campus too is undergoing remarkable changes making it more conductive and attractive. Caring for nature and doing away with all that is harmful for mother earth would argue well for our future.
The life is an echo. All comes back – the good and the bad, the false and the true. So give the world the best you have and the best will come back to you.
First of all I congratulate all the members of the Creane Family for the excellent presentation of Creane Utsav. The hard work of teachers and students was seen in this utsav. The people eagerly would like to see such an activity and happiness not only to the teachers and students but to the people of Gaya.
It is in our teaching methodology to teach students to ask good questions. They are empowered to dig deeper research and collect their thoughts, enable them to swim through the data and not down in it. Our teachers help the students to organize systematically the data for access in the future without hassle. Our students are more global citizens than ever before. We cannot imagine teaching them through narrow frameworks or prejudiced views of the world anymore. Our teachers are empowering the students to be confident to communicate their thinking emphatically and to learn to stand up for themselves when required and known when to yield. The Create Family tells the students to distinguish between friendly and distracters; fellow travellers and soul mates in a world that is increasingly virtual.
I am happy to see the friendly attitude between teachers and students. The pleasant atmosphere of the campus adds to the strength of the teachers and students to take up the extra responsibility without any hesitation. Trusting God won’t make the mountain smaller but it will make climbing easier. Hope you will be able to climb all your mountains always. Walk with God. He is the one who will keep you on track.
I am extremely happy to see the extension of two branches of a mother tree (Creane Memorial High School, Gaya) that are Creane School, Sherghati and Creane Hr. Sec. School, Jehanbad. It is like two hands of a body stretched to right and left. The people of those places are privileged to have such institutions. The dreams of many people are fulfilled and successfully progressing day by day with hard work of Fr. James, teachers and students.
We are grateful to Almighty for His blessings upon us. Let us work together to fulfill the plan of God for the people of Gaya. God may bless you.
