Dear Parents, Students and Visitors,
Welcome to the Katherine Public School website, It gives me great pleasure to introduce our school to you on this online platform.
It is an undeniable fact that the present education is considered merely an accumulation of knowledge. However different people in different parts of the world, understand the concept of education differently. According to western concept, education is external in nature. According to John Dewey “education is the development of all the capacities in the individual which will enable him to control his environment”. The Indian view strongly emphasises the innate faculties and development of these to the maximum to acquire knowledge.
Shri. Shankaracharya says “education is the realisation of self”. In the same chain of thought, Swami Vivekananda says “education means manifestation of the divine perfection already existing in humankind “ according to the Upanishad” Saa Vidya Yaa Vidya Vimuktaye, which means education, is for liberation. In the Indian Context education liberates students from the shackles of economic poverty, ignorance, superstition, social evils makes a person a free human being. Katherine Public School is in its steady stride of progress and activities, from its embryonic stage to its full today. Together with Rabindranath Tagore, let us raise our future generation to “Into that heaven of freedom my father, let my countrymen awake”.

Katherine Public School was established in 2006 by Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ, Sisters whose Generalate (Mother house) is in Germany. It is a registered Society known as Katherine Kasper Social Service Society based out of Bangalore. Our school is located at Vidayanagar, Bangalore and our focus is to educate children of the neighbourhood.
Education plays a very important role in the development of children who are the citizens of tomorrow.
Hence the motto of the school - Grow, Go & Glow - in all aspects.
Grow - This translates into a well rounded academic, physical and attitudinal development of the child. However - the challenge is to allow the child to develop as a well intending and acting future citizen who would face the world not just in a positive state of mind but also with academic equipping, sport competitiveness and the attitude of an overcomer.
Go - to have a mind, will and emotion that is able to face the world and the challenges that come in one's day to day life. The willingness to go is the willingness to face and embrace.
Glow - means to go forward to face the world and witness to the world by glowing in excellence in every area of the child's developed interest. The children in KPS are encouraged to cooperate while they are given every opportunity to compete and excel individually and for the sake of the nation and world at large.
