St. Columba’s School is deeply committed to including a sense of social responsibility in its students. Brother Beddoe the present Principal of St. Columba’s, has a distinct vision when it comes to his its students and their duty to the under privileged. Brother Beddoe involves his students in social causes in the belief that society will only change when young people take on the onus of social transformation and are pro-active participants in the mechanism of change. He says, “Without in any way componising On our commitment to pursue the all-round development of our student, we feel that we need to awaken a social conscience within our boys, so that their growing awareness of the lot of the huge number of people who continue to laed miserable lives even after 73 years of independence, will create a resolve within them to put something back in society in the year ahead”.
In 2002, St. Columba’s opened its doors to the homeless and vulnerable and has since been providing shelter refuge to the homeless in the school. The school will celebrate its 75th years in 2016.
