Fr. Syriac Panjikaran, S.J.
In 1999 Fr. Syriac Panjikaran S. J., a Jesuit priest of Kerala province, a person with indefatigable determination and inexhaustible dedication was sent to Kallikad for pastoral work and soon he got involved in the socio-educational activities in the region aiming at the empowerment of women and the education of children. A number of pre-schools were opened in the remote villages in order to impart basic education of superior quality to the children. One of these schools that was started at Mukundara in January 2000, came to prominence and realizing the farsightedness of the project Fr. Joseph Kallepallil S. J. then Provincial of Kerala Jesuit province raised it to Loyola School and constructed the first school building to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of the Kerala Jesuit Province and established a full- fledged Loyola School (ICSE)in the Neyyattinkara Mission. God of surprises again delighted us and in 2017, two years after his term as provincial, Fr. Joseph Kallepallil SJ, was appointed at Loyola, Mukundara as its Manager and Director. The present Manager Fr K J Thomas S J took charge of the administration on 6th April, 2021. Ever since then, he has been instrumental for tremendous changes within the short time in the school in all the areas especially administration, academic and non-academic, infrastructure etc.
Though Loyola School is a Catholic institution, admission and appointment are open to all communities. The school values the essential dignity of each individual and therefore puts all students on an equal footing, irrespective of their community, caste, creed, social status and financial position. An atmosphere of mutual respect and support, genuine care and warm friendship prevails in the Loyolite community of parents, students and educators.
