GENERAL INFORMATION
Holy Cross School, a minority institution under Article 30 of Indian
Constitution was established in 1971 and is administered by the Sisters of
the Cross of Chavanod, a registered charitable society. The school is under
the religious jurisdiction of the Catholic Bishop of Varanasi.
The Congregation of the Sisters of the Cross was founded by Mother
Claudine Echernier and Father Peter Mermier in 1838 at Chavanod in
France, in the 19th century. As a result of the French Revolution, ignorance,
misery and poverty prevailed. The deplorable situation of the young girls
touched the heart of Mother Claudine Echernier. Strengthened by the love of
Christ who gave his life for the salvation of all and inspired by the courage of
Mary at the foot of the Cross, Mother Claudine involved herself in
eradicating ignorance and misery. With the support of Fr. Peter Mermier,
Mother started this congregation, dedicated to serve the needy and to
educate the youth to transform the society.
MOTTO
''LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE''
The final outcome of our Education pattern is to help our students to
shine forth the love of God by being lovable to all. And we wish our students
to understand it well and to grow towards it. All the knowledge that they gain
in the school should help them to form a better society, by sharing and
caring for each other.

A HEALTHY MIND IN A HEALTHY BODY
Practise of Religion
All people who lead a life of peace and happiness are believers in God.
Have a childlike, loving relationship with Him and you will be peaceful and
happy. Learn about God and his friends in the Moral Science class. Great
men like Mahatma Gandhi and the founders of various religions tried to
draw closer to God and urged others, too, to do the same. Practise these
teachings.
Each religion has its place of worship. Take part in sacred functions with
respect and silence or sing sacred songs with a sense of respect, because
praising God in song is praising Him doubly. Don't disturb or distract other
worshippers; that is being doubly disrespectful; control your senses and
think you are in God's presence and then speak with Him; He hears you.
HOLY CROSS SCHOOL
17
Practice virtues which you were taught from early childhood, like
kindness to others, forgiveness and truthfulness, also kindness to animals
and all living creatures, humility, obedience, respect and love for your
parents .teachers, friends, neighbours, and others.
At School
As at home, in school, show respect not only to your teachers, but also to
your companions. Try to show that you appreciate all that is being done for
you and that you are thankful for the education being given to you. Acquire a
good name for diligence, good behaviour, and regularity in studies. Observe
strictly the school discipline. Be a friend of God and of persons of knowledge
and wisdom, don't be friendly with those who commit sin and don't
encourage their confidences.
Don't ridicule/ make fun of those who are physically or mentally
handicapped; .rather, be kind to them and protect them. Lead your
companions in doing good deeds. In case your teachers point out defects in
you, external or internal, think about it without getting upset and make the
correction without getting defensive or angry. After all, it is to help you
improve yourself.
At Home
"Home sweet Home" is an exclamation that comes frequently to our lips.
Home is 'sweet' because those who love you for yourself, live there; your
dear parents, sisters and brothers. Experience their love by keeping your
senses open to their loving words and kind deeds, and return them in the
measure that you receive them. As you grow up, be sensitive to their needs
and show by word and deeds that you love them too.
Your parents gave you life, they also give you food, clothes and a
comfortable home. They take care of you when you are sick and have any
problems. They send you to a good school and see to your education. They
HOLY CROSS SCHOOL
18
are ready to sacrifice their own comforts for you to have a bright future. All
these require hard work, constant thought and care of you on their part. So
make it a point to respect and love them in return. Repay them by bringing
home the best report card you can, and also by obeying them and helping
them when they are sick or in any kind of trouble or need. See that you make
them proud of you. Learn good manners from them and consult them when
you are in doubt.
Do not leave your home without informing either of them where you are
going and when you will return, or where and how they can get in touch with
you. Do not delay unduly or else inform them if you are delayed. Do not let
out family secrets to outsiders, not even your dear friends. Honour your
parents and always remember that you owe them your life. Be kind and
generous to your brothers and sisters and also to the domestic help in your
home. Let 'please' and 'thank you' and 'I am sorry' come readily to your lips
in case of need. Do not raise your hand to beat anyone in anger or use bad
language to others, no matter who. Be considerate with the domestic help
and treat him/her with respect and dignity. Do not ridicule anyone for a
physical or mental handicap, or call them names. Take care to give good
example by your behaviour. Try to make everyone happy. In a quarrel, you be
the magnanimous one, and the other person will respect you for it,
eventually.
Have your homework or house work done in time, without waiting for
your parents to tell you when to stop playing. Inform your parents when you
will be home and in case you are delayed unduly, make it a point to inform
them earlier.
Outside the Home: a) School
Acquire the habit of punctuality. Make it a matter of honour to be in time
for class or any function, in school or otherwise. However, if you happen to
come late for the class, do not go straight to your place; go to the teacher,
excuse yourself and then go to your seat.
HOLY CROSS SCHOOL
19
As soon as the bell for the school sessions rings, do not loiter around.
Acquire the habit of punctuality. Go straight to the class room or the
assembly line as is the custom in your school and take your place.
Wait in silence for the assembly or class to begin. In case you arrive late
and the class or assembly has begun, wait discretely, don't loiter at the
door. Go up to the teacher, excuse yourself and go to your place.
In case the teacher is late, don't run around in the class or get into loud
conversation with others. Perhaps you can take out your appropriate books
and get yourself ready for the class. When the teacher enters the class,
stand up, greet him/her respectfully and wait for her/him to tell you to sit. If
a prayer is recited, remain standing for its duration and sit when it is
concluded or when the teacher tells the class to sit.
Pay attention in class to what you are being taught. Don't distract others
or get distracted yourself. Don't talk during the class. If however, you need
something from your neighbour, ask for it in a whisper or with a gesture, and
do so quite openly. Do not ask furtively when the teacher's back is turned.
Stand when you are spoken to or questioned by the teacher. If you need
something from the teacher, stand and ask in a polite manner. If you need to
ask the teacher a question, raise your hand, to draw her/his attention and
when asked to speak, do so. If you need to leave the room, first get the
teacher's permission and then go out noiselessly.
When the class is over, stand up and when the teacher gives the sign to
leave the room, do so quietly and in an orderly way. In case you have the
next lesson in the same class, don't talk to your companions, till the teacher
leaves the room. And don't shout to companions across the room, if you
need to address him/her. When you see the next teacher enter, respect
her/him by quieting down.
HOLY CROSS SCHOOL
20
Manners in the classroom
When you are seated, sit up straight, keeping your head erect. You do not
need to support your chin with your hand. When you are standing, stand up
straight and not on one leg. Do not lean on the desk, but lay your hands
lightly on it, in front of you.
When a question is asked to you, answer it in a distinct, sufficiently loud
voice, so that the teacher and the whole class can hear your answer. In case
you need time to think, you may pause for a moment, and then answer. If
you know you do not know the answer, tell the teacher so, in which case
she/he can ask someone else. In case someone else is being asked and you
know the answer, raise your hand and wait till the teacher asks you. Do not
stand up and answer unasked, unless a particular teacher has allowed you
to do so in his/ her class.
Do not shout in the class or accuse anyone of anything. If you do not
grasp the question you are asked, do not answer at random; ask the teacher
politely to explain the question further. Then if you do not know the answer,
tell her/him you don't know the answer. In case a companion is being asked
a question and is not able to answer it, you may raise your hand, to indicate
that you do, so that the teacher can ask you, instead.
Home work should be done with great diligence, and neatly. The
handwriting should be legible. The book should be kept clean and without
the corners being turned down (dog's ears) Always keep a margin on the
right side of each page, for the teacher to put her/his remarks, in case of
need. When you turn the pages of a book, do so gently and don't lick your
finger to make it easier/faster. Treat the book as a friend; it will be your
friend and companion for the whole year.
HOLY CROSS SCHOOL
21
To write or draw on the blackboard, except when called upon to do so, to
write offensive words on the blackboard, to scribble on walls and maps or
deface pictures is offensive and amounts to indiscipline. To handle any
notice or picture exhibited on the notice board, to write such words to
anyone on walls, notice boards and anywhere else, is offensive and reveals
poor character and should be avoided.
•••
When Writing in your own copybook or paper, keep the writing material
straight before you, you may rest your right forearm on the desk to keep it
steady, and keep the fingers of your left hand on the paper or book to keep it
from moving. Keep the elbows off the desk. Keep a piece of hard paper or
board under your hand so that you do not soil the answer sheet on which you
are writing (refer to the section on eyes).
Never strew the floor with torn paper; keep the class room clean and tidy.
Unwanted paper or other matter should be deposited in the waste basket
provided in each class room. Keep your class room neat and tidy. Never
stand on the benches or desks. If you find furniture broken, report the
matter to the teacher or prefect or whoever is responsible. Writing on the
doors, walls, benches or even the blackboard is to be strictly avoided. It
reveals poor character and bad upbringing. Do not eat sweets or any
foodstuff in the class room. You should be proud of your class room.
If the Principal of the school or any other important person is escorted to
visit your class, stand up and greet them with a smile and bright faces,
according to the time of day.

O God, help me at my examination today, to remember the things that I have
learnt and studied. Help me to remember well and to think clearly; help me
not to be so nervous and excited, that I will not do myself justice, and keep
me calm and clear hearted. Help me to try to do my best. I ask this through
your name. Amen
OUR FATHER
Our Father in heaven, holy be your name, your kingdom come, your will be
done, on earth as in heaven, Give us today our daily bread, forgive us our
sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. Do not bring us to the test, but
deliver us from evil. Amen

ASSEMBLY HYMNS AND PRAYERS
1. O GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD
Ch: O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. (3)
Yes eternal is His love.
1. Will sing to my God never ceasing.
All my life I will tell of His wonders;
He's the maker of all earth and heaven,
Of the ocean, the seas and all they hold.
2. The Almighty is faithful for ever.
He is just to the poor and the outraged,
It is He who gives bread to the hungry,
Who delivers the captives from their chains.
3. He gives sight to the blind in His mercy,
And he raises the lowly, the humble,
It is He who gives shelter to strangers,
Every orphan and widow He defends.
2. To FOLLOW THE LORD
To follow the Lord and find freedom,
To love as He loved and bring peace,
To spend our lifetime for His kingdom,
To want it to grow and increase.
1. To search for the Truth never ceasing,
To look for a star in the night,
To knock at the door never tiring,
To wait eagerly for his light.
2. To walk hand in hand with each other,
To share with the burdened their pain,
To comfort the people who suffer,
To help those in need, for no gain.
3. To sense how oppressed are the poorest,
To struggle for justice and right,
To stand for the truth and be honest,
To die to oneself in the fight.
HOLY CROSS SCHOOL

3. MAKE ME A CHANNEL OF YOUR PEACE
1. Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me bring your love,
Where there is injury, your pardon, Lord,
And where there's doubt, true faith in you.
Oh, master, grant that I may never seek,
So much to be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love with all my soul.
2. Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there's despair in life; let me bring hope,
Where there is darkness, only light,
And where there's sadness, ever joy.
3. Make me a channel of your peace,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
In giving to each one that we receive,
And in dying that we're born to eternal life.
4. PRAYER FOR PEACE
1. Lord, we pray for golden peace,
Peace all over the land,
May all dwell in liberty,
Walking hand in hand.
Ch: Banish fear and ignorance.
Hunger, thirst and pain.
Banish hate and poverty.
Let no-one live in vain.
Let no-one live in vain.
2. Keep all people for ever one,
One in love and grace,
Wipe away all war and strife,
Give freedom to each race.
3. Let your justice reign supreme.
And righteousness be done,
Let goodness rule the hearts of all,
And evil be overcome.

2. Hide it under a bushel-On No.
I'm going to let it shine
Let it shine all the time, let it shine.
3. Take this little light round the world
I'm going to let it shine
Let it shine all the time, let it shine.
4. Make my little light burn for thee
I'm going to let it shine
Let it shine all the time, let it shine.

TIPS FOR YOUR STUDY
Dear Students here are some tips for your study :
1. Start with a clean desk.
2. Sit up straight .... a straight body ... straight thinking ....
3. Take up first, subject you most dislike. Once you have done this, the
rest of your work will be easy.
4. Find out what is most important and study it first.
5. Do not hesitate to ask your teacher or your clever companions, things
you cannot grasp clearly. Never omit any difficulties whatsoever, as
this will put you in great difficuties later.
6. Never omit the lesson or homework.
7. Bring the books to the school according to the time table.
8. Always revise the work done in class and make sure that you have
understood everything clearly and thoroughly.
9. If memorization is assigned, learn it overnight and repeat it the first
thing in the morning.
10. Use your homework notebook to take down the work assigned for the
next day. All homework should be done neatly and the day's work
always dated. Revise at the end of the week.
11. Get enough exercise everyday. It keeps the mind fresh.
12. Lastly, pray often to the All-Wise and All-Knowing God to help you
progress in your studies.
