The environment at St. Britto High School is a highly dynamic and vigorous one. As a teacher one needs to be fully prepared to undertake any task at any moment. And there are so many moments! The opportunities are endless- from spontaneous lessons to judging competitions, from training students to sing, play, deliver speeches and perform to performing for them… these are among the many everyday challenges and opportunities- each a reason to push out of one’s comfort zone and grow.
The school runs on a strict regiment of discipline that strives to uphold civil, moral and Jesuit values. It is also equipped with the best of facilities and resources (right from sanitation to technology) to ensure maximum benefit for students as well as teachers, the most hyped being the projectors in every classroom that students enjoy and that pave new avenues for teachers to explore in their practice. However, it is in no comparison to the calibre of human resources that form part of the St. Britto family. The teachers at St. Britto are dynamic, hardworking and dedicated to their students and professional growth. It was inspiring to be amidst them during my term there.
The Staff of St. Britto High School have always been warm, accommodating, generous, gracious, and so lovely that we built a great rapport and became more than just co-workers, we became friends. Even the most feared personalities turned out to be the warmest of smiling faces there. There was always an energy of inclusion that made my transition into life at school a pleasant one. My time at St. Britto High School was truly an enriching experience and I shall always remember it fondly.
