Rector's Message

Welcome to St. Paul’s Missionary College

St. Paul’s Missionary College was founded in 1964 and since then, driven by a Catholic ethos,  has striven to inculcate Catholic values in its students and their families.  The College motto: Instrue me et vivam, meaning: teach me and I will live, sets the stage for the work and ministry carried out at the College.

A holistic approach to education is adhered to, whereby the student’s whole being is given importance.  The academic, physical, social, psychological, and spiritual dimensions of the student’s personality are targeted.  This is reflected in school policies and the related strategies and action.

St. Paul’s Missionary College acknowledges staff, students and parents as its stakeholders.  One  cannot imagine an  SPMC without the full and active participation, at different levels, of all three stakeholders.

It is envisaged that the College is a second home to its students. We believe that when parents are welcomed at our College, an atmosphere conducive to a healthier, holistic education is achieved.  It’s as if the College is a continuation of home.

The College is, of course, a place where teaching and learning take place.  Staff are not only present to teach academic subjects, but also to take a special interest in the student as an individual, with his strengths and limitations.  The student comes to know and understand that he is valued as a person, and is therefore enabled and empowered, through his friends and family, to achieve his full potential and open himself up to the world.

The student is encouraged to do his utmost and, while making use of the resources available to him to advance his studies, he is also motivated to participate in the 101 activities that are conducive to the holistic education we aim at.   Friendships are struck at an early age, and very often last a long time after the student exits the school at the age of 16.

A word of thanks and appreciation to all past and present students, families and staff,  who have participated and/or are still participating in the life of the College, and make it what it is.  May God, who is the initiator of all that is good and holy, bless the whole College community.
