Chairman’s message


De Paul International Residential School, Kerala (DPIRSK), is designed to be a unique school where its students, The De Paulians, would be chiselled and shaped into socially responsible, emotionally mature and culturally rich citizens of their respective nations. The school envisages a global perspective in nurturing its young scholar in its upbringing, fostering social values, refining inherent qualities and imparting education par excellence intrinsic to building world leaders.

The academic entity and administrative entirety of DPIRSK will enable each parent to take the most critical decision in their life: the schooling of their child and adapting their child to a social culture which is universal in all respects. That very decision will hold firm against anything that may harm and hamper the education of a child. Such parental pursuits for a different school should necessarily end in DPIRSK. The School is all set to help you know the unknown destiny of your child.

I would like to invite you to visit our Kerala Campus to feel the love and warmth of the parental care which we offer to all our students at DPIRSK.

God bless you all!

Yours sincerely,

Rev. Dr Jose Aikara, (CM)

M.Sc., Ph.D., B.D., B.Ed., L.L.B., M.B.A.
