Principal's Message

Dear Parents, Students, and Well-wishers, As the Principal of Sophia Opportunity School, I deem it a great pleasure to welcome you to our school website. We have tried to create an online resource that provides a rich flavor of life at Sophia Opportunity School. The website showcases the wealth of experiences we offer to the Special Children and gives them a wider audience for the wonderful work they do.

"In this life, we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love." - Mother Teresa Mother Teresa in her quote very powerfully captures important wisdom about how to approach life and schooling to make it more fulfilling and significant. Teaching and learning offer us numerous opportunities to focus on several "small things" that amplify over time to produce students who are prepared to do the "great things" to face life's challenges.

Keeping this in mind Sophia Opportunity School is transitioning to the digital revolution that will transform every aspect of student life in the classrooms and outside. The closed classrooms are opened as the school goes online this year. The teachers and students can show the work done within the four walls with pride.

Our aim at Sophia Opportunity School is to help the special needs children to believe in themselves and to provide space for them to flourish with all their abilities and God-given talents. They are given ample opportunities in our school to partake in extracurricular activities like dance, sports, etc. It is very touching to see our students putting their best efforts to compete with other special schools in and around Bangalore when they have competitions or games.

Our special children show the world that they too can fulfill their unique potentials. All they need is a little help, a little hope, and someone who believes in them. We reach out to them, lift them and support them to grow and blossom as individuals. At school, all aspects of our educational processes are carefully designed to cultivate and stimulate our students' intellectual, social, and emotional development. We accord prime importance to their behavioral discipline and moral integrity.

We create a learner-centric, engaging and effective environment integrated with methods that enable them to actualize their potential and develop their self-confidence.

Every day I have the privilege to witness our students achieve this transformation for themselves and emerge more confident and assured of their worth as individuals. Helped by the loving and guiding presence of parents, teachers, and special needs assistants our students explore, express and excel academically and creatively.

Above all, it is a true sense of community where our staff uniquely contributes to the growth and development of the institution. Our teachers strive to teach academic programs and life skills needed for students' development with highly resourceful techniques. All experience the joys and struggles of working and growing together in the campus, which makes Sophia Opportunity School a truly special place.

As a Catholic Institution, we offer a rich, inclusive and holistic approach to education in the tradition that is inspired by the life and teachings of St. Julie, our Spiritual Mother, and that has been refined over decades of growth. We offer this to all faiths who come to us.

The reputation the school has acquired and established over these years is due to the foresight and commitment of the teachers, supporting staff, and students. I appreciate the dedication and the selfless service of the teachers of the past and the present. I pray that they may be blessed with happiness and prosperity for their contribution to the noble task of imparting knowledge and wisdom.

We thank our Divine Lord for journeying with us and protecting us during this pandemic. We should not let the pandemic pin us down. We must remain positive because, as Ralph Blum says, "Nothing is predestined. The obstacles of our past can become the gateways that lead to new beginnings."

I request all parents and well-wishers to join hands as we take Sophia Opportunity School to greater heights.

Wishing You All the Best,
Sr. Madhuja, S.N.D
