Co-Curricular Activities
We have students with varied talents abilities and interest buried deep within. To unfold them and blossom to the optimum level the institution offers ample opportunities through co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The students are expected and encouraged to make the best use of them and benefit a lot from them.

Ankura is the Talents’ Day for the PU College students. It was held on 13th of July 2007. There were 24 main stage and off stage events conducted for the college students. Fr. Scotus Fernandez inaugurated the day. Throughout the day there were different competitions in different venues. Mrs Shilpi Choudhri was the Chief Guest for the Valedictory function.

Spark’07 was the National Level Cultural fest hosted by St. Joseph’s Indian P.U. College on 22nd, 23rd and 24th of November 2007. It was a mega event. Many people were surprised to see that a P.U. College that began a year back took a gigantic step in conducting a national cultural fest. To our credit we had 25 colleges participating from Bangalore and outside Bangalore. There were 54 main stage and off stage events conducted. The climax of the fest was a concert by Mr. Sadu Kokila and Mr. Aslam as well as a Rock show by a band group called Parousia. The idea of the SPARK’07 is to enkindle in our students the spark of enthusiasm to excel in different cultural talents. This is to take our students – One Step Higher, One step Closer and One Step Ahead in the world of the 21st Century.

The whole school wore a colourful look while music and dance saw the students in sprightly action. On the second and the final day, the valedictory function was held in the Picardo Hall for the Middle School, where Mr. and Mrs. Anil Rego were the Chief Guests. The High School had its valedictory function in the Auditorium. Mrs Veena Varuni a classical veena instrumentalist was the Chief Guest for the occasion.

Community College as a concept was evolved in the United States to support further learning of the working class and the poorer sections who could not afford education at one go. Thus with Community College, working groups could come back and enhance their qualifications and further their career options.

In India the concept developed in 1997 as an alternative to the poorer sections who have developed out of school and College. Thus Community College offers ‘Best to the least’ and ‘Including the Excluded’

There have been many staff who have worked full time and part time. We also draw a number of staff from various institutions who come and go

This institution has gained vibrancy because of Fr. Francis Guntipilly SJ the Director. He is a person who has always ventured into troubled waters in order to bring light into bleak hearts facing the adversities of life. This work of community college is one example for his hard and committed work. He has already trained and placed one or two batches of the students of the community college.

We thank all the staff and benefactors and the Society of Jesus who have supported us to make this dream a possibility of reaching out to the poor.

Parent Teacher Association
Parents play a vital role in the process of education of their education in our Institutions. Through their involvement in the PTA Meetings, in various other occasions and also in the functioning of the Institution, they affirm their support. The PTA celebrated the Teacher’s Day in a befitting manner, honouring the teachers and appreciating their services. We sincerely thank Mr. John Bosco for his selfless services as the Vice-President of PTA for the last two consecutive terms. Mr Ramesh Narayan has been elected as the new Vice President of the PTA from 6th July 2007
