Welcome to Fatima Mata National College!
“Whoever teaches, learns in the act of teaching, and whoever learns, teaches in the act of learning”: Paulo Freire
During this era of a global pandemic, which resulted in a hitherto unprecedented crisis, teaching-learning process also went through an extraordinary situation. Teachers, students and families have learned to adapt to the resilient educational systems of online teaching, learning and assessments. Traditional Direct Instruction Teaching Method has been translated to remote learning environments. The pandemic has not only impacted students’ ability to learn, but also their physical and socio-emotional needs. This is crucial moment that propels education systems into exotic and more effective ways of providing quality teaching and learning experiences to students. At this juncture, Fatima College stands committed to provide a conducive environment for students to achieve their goals through all conceivable systems and mechanisms.
As the head of the Institution, it is my duty to ensure that the college upholds the interests of the students, especially the less fortunate ones, as our founder Bishop Jerome M Fernandez envisioned. A very strong, dedicated and capable team of teachers has always been the driving force in the growth of the College. The sincerity and commitment of our faculty and administrative staff have helped this institution scale heights of excellence. High expectation for each student with regard to his academic performance as well as co-curricular activities is the foundation of our philosophy. We also strive to mould them into worthy citizens of the future. We, Fatimites, well-knit by the fabric of love, work as a single unit to uphold the ideals for which our Institution stands.
Being the first autonomous College in the district, Fatima College provides an excellent ambience for our students to pursue higher education. An array of Add-On and Value-Added Courses that we offer is intended to widen their scope of learning. Most of the postgraduate departments of our college are recognized Research Centers of the University of Kerala, with nearly two dozens of research guides.
With a long and rewarding history of achievement, Fatima College continues to move forward with confidence and passion.
I once again welcome the energetic and enthusiastic youth to be a part the legacy of our glorious institution.
With best wishes to each one of you
