"Discipline is beautiful; control is ugly. Control is suppression; discipline is understanding. Discipline has no ideal to follow, no dogma to adhere to; it's spontaneous and leads you gradually to wholeness. The very word 'discipline' comes from a root that means to learn, stemming from the same word as 'disciple'—one who is ready to learn.
Discipline can never be a rod; how can we control children? Here at Loyola International School, we understand that instilling habits through explanation and example is far more valuable than trying to force them onto the students. Our aim is to nurture a sense of responsibility in the students so that they themselves understand what they must do and how they must behave in different circumstances.
Bestowing them with duties and responsibilities gives them a feeling of importance and belongingness, which in turn drives them to be the best and do the best they can. Successfully carrying out their duties develops in them a sense of pride and self-confidence.
The Emblem of Loyola International School is thoughtfully designed to represent what we stand for. Taking from the 'Tree of Knowledge and Wisdom,' all things must have good roots, a good structure, and good fruit.
The 'L' in the top-left section of the emblem is much like a growing vine, symbolizing the root. Students studying in Loyola International School are growing here and must have a sense of loyalty and belongingness to the institution.
The 'Ink Pot' in the lower-left section represents the school and its faculty as a resource into which the students dip to get the necessary nourishment for growing healthy in mind and body. The 'Quill' or pen in the mid-section represents the input expected from the students studying here.
In the bottom-right section of the emblem is a 'Multi-Level Candle stand with a lit Candle on each level.' This symbolizes the future of our students. Recognizing that every individual has a different capacity for different things and knowing that no two students are the same, we endeavor to groom each student to be the best in his or her capacity, spreading light as a positive element.
The 'Stars' in the lower-right section also convey a similar message: no matter how big or small, strive to be a star. The 'Yellow' color in the emblem represents 'Glory.' Glory is the benchmark for the quality expected in each endeavor.
The 'Blue and Grey' colors symbolize clear skies and the clouds that often come up, reminding us that with the good times in life's journey, there will come some challenging times. Keeping oneself prepared to swim against the current is an integral part of growing up.
In closing, we want everyone to know that at Loyola International School, we leave no stone unturned when it comes to searching for new and better ways to groom our students. We strive to make the atmosphere fun and enjoyable to keep students interested in learning so that our faculty can help bring out the best in them."
