Fr. S. Joseph SVD came in June 2009 to take up the reigns of the school. He was at St. Lawrence School, Tentoloi, Angul before he came to Rourkela. In keeping with the Technology and modern day demands, he has introduced the EDUCOMP Smart Classes in all classrooms of the school. This will go a long way in imparting education to children with modern methods and teaching aids. Free tuition classes have been arranged in the evening at St. Paulís School Campus for poor students who cannot afford to get extra help for studies.
There is a dedicated band of teachers at St. Paulís School who help the students develop in all fields and activities. Their dedication and commitment to the school have taken the school to great heights today. No doubt, St. Paulís is now placed as one among the best in the Eastern region of India.
St. Paulís School is owned and administered by the Divine Word Educational Society, a religious minority institution under Article 30(I) of the Constitution of India. It is a Catholic school that admits students of all religions. The school exempts non-Catholic students from participating in the exercises particular to the Catholics. The right and duty of each non-catholic student to follow privately the dictates of his conscience in the religious beliefs is carefully respected.
