Dear Staff & Students,
Heartiest Welcome to the academic session 2013-14. I convey my best wishes and augur that this academic year will be as successful as the last.
136 Years and counting... The Calcutta Boys' School magnificently surges ahead disseminating the light of education. With such a veritable history CBS has built up a global reputation for excellence. As we savour the academic excellence of his heritage school, let us not be overwhelmed by self-satisfied acknowledgement, a mere maintenance of status quo; but strive to live up to the distinctive and defining core values enunciated 136 years ago, which epitomise CBS-a belief in "Dei Mundus Deo"
In championing this quest of 'preparing the world of God, for God,' CBS-corroborates that education is not mere intellect, but also character building. The prime objective of a 'CBSite' therefore is to maintain a balance between academics and ethics.
CBS endorses the significance of education beyond the classroom. While it is true that occassionally a great mind, or even a great soul, may find lodgement in an emaciated body, it is true likewise that both deserve a better habitation: the ideal of a true 'CBSite' remain the ancient Roman one - 'Mens sana in corpore sano'.
You are fortunate to be a part of The Calcutta Boys' School family. Consider your obligation to your alma mater, your friends and colleagues, and most importantly to your Teachers- people who by their dedicated lives and service, have nurtured you and help you build your career. Don't hesitate to call upon them when required as they will be your best source of support
In wishing you a pleasant and rewarding Academic Session 2013-14, I urge you to BE ACTIVE and enthuse with the rhythm of the academic year. Share your knowledge and skills. Systematize and discipline yourself. Edify one another to grow, improve, and innovate together. Above all, have fun, it is this that makes your stay in CBS one of life's cherished moments.
May the Father Almighty guide and bless you!
