We affirm our faith in the universal brotherhood of mankind, and the fatherhood of one God. The aim of the school is to develop the best that is latent in children, and to prepare them for the challenges of the changing world through the encouragement of self discipline, high intellectual achievements and physical fitness. The motto of the school is "Truth, Trust and Triumph". The school has built a tradition which incorporates in its milieu all that are universally good in thought, word and deed. The secular and ethical values are cherished, and an atmosphere prevails where every creed and faith is allowed to flourish. The students are educated in a way that permits them to grow up without inhibition and prejudice in any form.
The ideals enshrined in the constitution of the land are meticulously observed. To be precise, a deep sense of patriotism, loyalty to the motherland, values of all cultures and the need for practical ethics in public life are inculcated in them right from the time of their joining.
Education is a continuous process by which a generation is prepared for the future by being provided with as many opportunities as possible to develop every aspect of personality, in order to sustain the time-tested institutions which maintain law, order and harmony in the world.
The aim of this website is to convey as far as possible the essence of SPLENDID LORETO School, which pursues an academic procedure with a view to ensuring excellence in curricular and co-curricular activities.
Every student receives individual and personal attention and the maximum comforts possible. It is our endeavour to make education a purposeful, meaningful and enjoyable experience.
