An educational institute is not just a place to impart knowledge, but it is a place of formation of young minds. I am very happy that Philomena College, Puttur is completed 60 fruitful years of existence and meritorious service to the society in the academic year 2018-19. Ever since its establishment the College has made remarkable progress in providing quality education to students without any discrimination. Indeed, the students have excelled in academic, sports and cultural events. Since its inception thousands of students have passed out from the portals of the College to become responsible citizens of our country, it itself is great achievement. The NAAC has accredited the College with 'A' grade for the physical facilities and the record of performance.
I thank the Almighty for His graces and blessings upon this college over 6 decades and also acknowledge the dedicated services of the Staff and Students both past and present. I appreciate hard work and dedication of Staff in developing the potential of the students. Different activities conducted in our College speak for themselves about the integral formation the institute offers to its students. I always keen about the importance of educating students on human values. I have no hesitation to say that all-out efforts have been made in our College to instill human/ethical/Gospel values in the students. My vision is to take a step forward in this line and make our College not only an institute for secular studies but also a school for human/Gospel values
