ST. JOSEPH'S PUBLIC SCHOOL
Civilization and education are complimentary attainments and one stem's from the other. Education, as a system, protects the Society and its civilization. The meaning and scope of education has widened to include not only the intellect, but also the emotional and social development of the student, his physical and mental health, his social adjustment and other important aspects of life, in a word - the all-round development of his personality. The student has to develop into a useful member of the community with a healthy mind and body to successfully face the challenges in the present day world of high competition. The teacher's role would be to integrate knowledge and life, to sharpen thought and perception and to develop character and personality. It is in this context that the institution, which is responsible for the student's learning and training, plays a pivotal role.

Though academic excellence is the main aim of our institutions, it is necessary to expose the students to outside world to relax and think. To this end, the activities of various clubs like Science Club, Literary Club in our institutions helped to draw out and develop the talents and skills in the students. Our institutions have encouraged the students to participate in various activities conducted by organizations like NTSE, Maths Olympiad, and also involve in UN Day Celebrations every year. Our students are encouraged to participate in physical education activities. They excelled in BasketBall, Cricket, Tennis, Swimming, and Roller skating events held at National and State level. It is a regular annual feature with all our institutions to take the students on educational tours to various places of historical and cultural interest in the country.
Leadership is a potent combination of character and strategy. Leadership qualities have to be nurtured at school to train future citizens. School Cabinet and Parliament plays a vital role in inculcating democratic principles and practices in the students. The functioning of School Cabinets and School Parliaments in our institutions has been very successful in that a strong foundation is laid for the future parliamentarians and legislators

Located near the T.V. Tower at Malakpet, the Asmangarh Palace was constructed in 1885 by the Paigah Noble Sir Asman Jah. The Asmangarh Palace is located on a hillock with a commanding view of the surrounding forest, which served as a hunting preserve for the Nizam and his courtiers. The Nizam was so fascinated by this miniature castle that he bacame a regular visitor. Sir Asman Jah eventually gifted it to the Nizam.
A granite structure in Gothic style, the compact building is too small to technically qualify as a palace, let alone the European castle which no doubt inspired its construction. Its claim as a palace is however justified by its architectural style and lofty location on a high plinth. The entrance is approached by a pair of simple symmetrical staircases which lead up to a verandah with painted arches springing from slender Corinthian columns. The painted arch is repeated in the window openings. The multi-level terraced roof is topped with castlellated battlements, which form the parapet and arethe most noticeable of its architectural elements. When the Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan inherited the palace he added a unique arched gateway in the shape of the Royal Dastar (turban-like headgear, part of Hyderabad court dress and a symbol of State).
Unused for quite sometime, the palace was leased to the Birlas who located their Archaeological Museum in it. After more than four decades, the Birla Museum moved out and the building is now occupied by St. Joseph's Public School.
