Secretary Desk Message

     The Catholic Board of Education is a registered Society. There are 330 educational institutions in different parts of Dakshina Kannada, Udupi and Kasargod Districts under this management. Our motto is to reach and teach all children irrespective of caste, creed or religion. The CBE has taken Education as a part of its mission. Most of the children who come to our schools are from economically poor background. By imparting education to them we are sure of raising the socio-economic standard of the people in the society.

     Today there is a craze to go for English Medium schools. Accordingly English Medium schools are opened in many parishes, even in the remote villages. As a result we are losing strength in Kannada Medium Schools. Aided teachers have reached their retiring age. As per the present policy of the Government we have no facility to appoint new teachers in aided schools. Hence aided schools are on the verge of closure.

     We have at present 2775 employees, teaching and non-teaching in our institutions and around 65500 Students studying. We are proud to say that our staff is dedicated and committed to the cause of teaching. Our Vision Statement is “An Enlightened Society for a fuller life”. I invite all our staff to keep this in mind. Let us work together and build an enlightened society.
