It is an honour and privilege to script a few lines for the official web site of the School. As we move with the times a website for the School to communicate with the outside world has become a necessity. This has become the most effective way to put across one's view point and the activities the school is involved in. The School has provided service to our Muslim brethren for the last 115 years.Even a School as unique as ours needs to communicate with the outside world to inform the community of the work we do in a world which moves at such an hectic pace. CEZM School set up to educate the Muslim girl child has been witness to many historical events which has changed our world and country as we know it. I will stay with the mundane since the aforementioned historical events are well documented. Suffice it is to say that CEZM as an institution has existed and continues to exist in the 20th and 21st centuries where mankind has seen the maximum change.
CEZM school started as a primary school for poor Muslim girls has added an English Medium branch and then in the past few years has got permission form the Educational Department of the state to add a High School to the existing primary and middle school. It has been a century plus a little more that a decade of service to our Muslim brethren, by following our Lord's commandment to "Love your Neighbour..." Personally I am overawed by the vision of the founders of the School and their selfless service. We try our very best to fill their giant shoes. We would also sincerely thank our Diocese and sister institutions whose giving has made our mission possible. As we set out to expand our mission of making a difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters through the medium of education the medium of the internet will help us to inform more like minded people of the opportunities available through our School to serve the community at large.
I close by quoting Martin Luther King Jr. The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.
