Vision and Leadership
School Vision

Somerville School aims to be an institution of excellence where sound ethical values, character, wisdom, leadership, service and academic achievement are encouraged in a safe and nurturing environment.


I recall the first day when I visited what was to be the site for our new school. There was a sense of excitement that a new venture always brings to those who have a dream of finding new pastures, who already see before them the images of that dream with the belief that their plans will reach fruition. Barren land lay all around us, a veritable wilderness. Unpaved roads or should I call them tracks greeted us with swirls of dust. Where were we? In the distance, in the midst of the grassless acreage stood a single tree. It was pointed out as a landmark. That was our piece of land! What followed is history. The land was blessed, the plans were passed, the foundation was dug, brick by brick the structure was built and then there she stood, Somerville School, Greater NOIDA, the first school in a brand new township awaiting its first students. There were misgivings, who would want to come to what was still an unpopulated town so far from its closest neighbour, NOIDA? It was then that our faith was tested. We had taken the plunge with the conviction that what the Lord had guided us to do was right. What He had begun would be a success for He had been with us all the way. The first little ones came to us in 1998. The first teachers all lived 25 kilometres away in NOIDA. It was a determined little band, a staff that worked with a will and slowly established themselves and gave their all to the importance of the task, forgetting the distance, forgetting the drawbacks and working with their students and their parents who had reposed their trust in us. The name of Somerville School encouraged parents who lived in NOIDA to send their three and four year-olds to this unknown far-away place. Bless them for their belief in us for it gave us the start we needed. Today, Somerville School, Greater NOIDA, is a well-established, reputed institution that has made a name for itself. There are more than 2100 students and 103 teachers, 9 admin staff and 100 support staff. We have grown from strength to strength. Our Principal, Dr. Mary Thomas is a CBSE Awardee. Our teachers are committed and hardworking. Our students bring us accolades in academics as well as on the sports field, in the performing arts and in extra and co curricular activities. We are proud of them and those who train them. My good wishes and prayers go out to the Principal, Staff, students and their parents. By the grace of God we have come thus far and shall continue to work hard and give of our best efforts to do our assigned tasks knowing that what was begun with the name of the Lord will prosper as He is our guiding light.

‘ The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights’ (Habakkuk 3:19) Somerville School, Greater NOIDA which was established on the 2nd July 1998, is administered by the Lott Carey Baptist Mission in India. It has the distinction of being the first School of Greater NOIDA with an imposing building surrounded by a green and sprawling campus of 6 Acres.The school aims at a holistic development of the learners through co-curricular activities, academics and a strong value system. By the Providence of God, we started the school with 69 students and 2 Teachers on 2nd July 1998, bringing formal education to a place where there were no schools. Being first in the field of education was a mammoth task that we kept together thus far by the Will of God. By the Grace of God, today, we have more than 2100 students, 103 Teachers, 9 Administrative Staff and 100 Support Staff. We at Somerville School, Greater NOIDA shall continue to work together and are confident to look forward to the coming years only because we rest and trust in the Sovereignty of God. Each year we embark upon newer standards by pushing the finish line further as we go along. Each passing day teaches us that perfection is a moving target. To follow the locus to the point of perfection means being on our toes each minute of the day, while striving for the ultimate best. The path is not one to be tread in a state that tends to inertia, but one that tends toward momentum. Being on the move is important, because some of the most brilliant ideas remain in its foetal stages only because one fails to act upon it, or were too late to act upon it. Being proactive and realizing a dream calls for sacrifice and co-operation along the way. Willingness to take one for the team and not seeking individual glory catapults us, as a school, towards success. And I can truly say, that the teachers, students, office staff and the supporting staff of Somerville School, Greater NOIDA are doing just that. "Do We Really Want to Produce Good People?" asks education professor, Dr. Nel Noddings, in the title of a 1987 article. Do we concur with philosopher Martin Buber's conviction that "education worthy of the name is essentially education of character"? Is it the business of the schools to seek to develop in young people the character traits we associate with goodness- traits such as kindness, generosity, compassion, and helpfulness? These are far-reaching questions; and educators, parents and students can be expected to continue expressing different points of view about the teaching of "values" and "morals" in the schools. But in this race to produce “good people”, all of us miss out on the sidelines one quality that actually should be the goal and finish of our earthly sprint. Over and above all the values of Kindness, Generosity, Compassion, Helpfulness and the likes which we seek in the scope of “goodness” in a person is one which has gained maximum attention in the current times - the quality of Empathy. Empathy may broadly be defined as the capacity to understand or feel what another being (a human or non-human animal) is experiencing from within the other being's frame of reference, i.e., the capacity to place oneself in another's position. Empathy is a skill that experts from many disciplines have deemed important for personal relationship and career success. People who are empathic tend to have better social interactions, academic performance and accomplishments at work than others. A strong sense of empathy allows children to make decisions that are right for them without hurting others or seeking approval or acceptance. This may strengthen them against negative peer pressure and a range of maladaptive behaviors such as substance abuse, bullying, narcissism, aggression or violence against others. Although some children are remarkably resilient despite abuse, neglect or other forms of mistreatment, studies suggest that these early trauma experiences significantly increase the risk of emotional and behavioral problems later in life. With newspapers flooded with news of violence and intolerance, negativity is rampant in the young impressionable minds that should be joyful and at peace. Can we turn people who are already out there into “good people”? A near Impossibility. Can we at Somerville School focus on the generation that we have in our hands? Definitely a Possibility. We at Somerville, seek to strategically raise an awareness of Empathy in students, with the ultimate goal of raising each child’s Empathy Quotient. Learning activities which focus students' attention on the lives and achievements of famous empathetic persons have shown to increase children's desire to be like these people and to take on attitudes and behaviors associated with them (Dixon 1980). People who have been the focus of such learning activities include Florence Nightingale, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Albert Schweitzer, and Mother Teresas, the life stories of which inspire young minds to emulate their behavioral pattern. The world could definitely do with more Mother Teresas and Mahatma Gandhis. Developing empathy can be a lifelong process. We cannot expect 4-year-olds to master this skill, nor can we expect children to feel empathy when they are in the midst of overwhelming feelings of their own growing. What we can expect is an open and ongoing dialogue between students, between teachers and students and more importantly between parents and students. For only the wearer knows where the shoe pinches. It becomes our prerogative to understand the pain in the pinch and walk with him/her. So, do we Really want to produce Good People? The Answer is YES. The world needs them more than ever before. And it all begins right here, right now. At Home. “Coming together is beginning, keeping together is progress but working together is success “.(Henry Ford) DR. MARY THOMAS PRINCIPA
