Carmel College, Modankap, Bantwal is a new venture of the Apostolic Carmel Sisters of the Karnataka Province in order to extend university education to the rural areas of Karnataka. It was started in 2010 under the patronage of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. The College had 58 students in First year B.Com and 42 students in First year B.B.M. with a total strength of 100 students. Most of the students after completing PUC in Carmel Composite Pre-University College had either to discontinue their studies or travel to Mangalore or other distant colleges because of the lack of Degree Colleges in the vicinity. Hence the Management found it necessary to offer a Higher Education Institution in the same premises.

It was the first of its kind in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi District. Later many good willed people also started such institutions.

The institution has successfully completed 24 years of its existence.

     Principal                                                               Joint Secretary

It surely proves the comment exclaimed by Dr. Lakshmanaswami Mudaliar, the Vice-Chancellor of Madras University and later the Chairman of the Mudaliar Education Commission (1952-1953), when he visited St. Ann’s with a high ranking team, on 5th March, 1943, as the Chairman of the Inquiry Committee for the Affiliation of St. Ann’s Training College: “If your secondary trained teachers are so good, how much better your graduate trained teachers will be!”. Hence, the College is a Government Aided, Autonomous and Christian Minority College, under Mangalore University and is managed by the Sisters of the Apostolic Carmel Congregation who pioneered the cause of women’s education and empowerment in India in 1870. The college is administered by the Apostolic Carmel Educational Society, Mangaluru, and Karnataka, India.

The College is involved basically with under-graduate pre-service teacher training for secondary schools since 1943, the M.Ed. Degree Course since 1992. The UGC, State Government of Karnataka and Mangalore University bestowed the ‘Autonomous Status’ to the college in 2007 and the Mangalore University granted the ‘Ph. D. Research Centre’ to the college in 2008. Nineteen scholars have obtained Ph. D. degree and thirty scholars are pursuing their research study.

The institution has very rich human and material resource potential.

St. Ann’s TTI, started in 1890, celebrated its Post Centenary Silver Jubilee on October 14, 2015. A Pioneer Institution for the training of Women Teachers along the West Coast. During the course of 125 years it has more than fulfilled its objective of providing quality and integrated education to young girls to become beacons of light not only in India but in different parts of the world.

   Principal                                                    Joint Secretary

Under Sister Aloysia’s skilful management, St. Ann’s School progressed rapidly. Since the school was producing good teachers, the Director of Public Instruction, acting on the suggestion of Mr. Bradshaw, the Acting Inspector requested the Management in 1880-1882, to open a Training School at St. Ann’s School, in order that the training received by its teachers could be extended to other schools.

In 1888, the Director of Public Instruction reiterated his request for a Training School at St. Ann’s, with the promise of a liberal grant. Finding that the request could no longer be put off, Sister Aloysia and two other sisters were sent to the Training School at Madras.

They returned to Mangalore with flying colours, Sister Aloysia having secured the First Place in the Madras Presidency.

In 1890, the Training Class was formally opened by Miss Carr, the First Inspectress of the Girls’ Schools. Sister Aloysia played the double role as Headmistress of the practising school and the Training Mistress of the Training School. At the end of the first Year, Miss Carr was able to give a laudable report, which was a tangible proof of the quality of work turned out by the Training School. The school was converted into a Basic Training School for Teachers in 1960 as a result of the change in policy of the Education Department. It was a one year’s course. In 1966, it was extended to two years with a new syllabus. From 1960 to 1975 the Training School was compulsorily residential but later it became optional. In1976, the Basic Training School had to change its name to Teacher’s Training Institution (T.T.I.)

1990 was a land mark in the history of St. Ann’s TTI as it completed a hundred years of service to the nation and to the world. The Post-Centenary era saw further growth and development in the institution. In 2007 the NCTE permitted ST Ann’s T.T.I to start the English Medium section. On the basis of the Government policy, the Teacher Training Institutes are now known as D.Ed Colleges awarding a Diploma in Teacher Education. The trainees are involved in curricular and extra-curricular activities both in their institution as well as inter-college, zonal, state and national level.

In August, 2012, a group of six members from Makerere University Business School, Uganda, visited St. Ann’s D.Ed. College. They were given a traditional welcome. They were much impressed by the training given. The school strives to keep the flame alive by imparting skills, keeping in mind the rapid changes in the society, to bring out the best in the children entrusted to their care.

In 1960 pressure mounted from the society for a school with English as the medium of instruction. In April 1965, parents of the pupils petitioned the D.D.P.I. through the Mother Superior of Ladyhill Convent to grant permission to open English medium classes. In 1967 Ladyhill English Higher Primary School received recognition and permission was granted to run classes from Std. I to Std. VII.
Overcrowded classrooms and the need to house the Pre-University classes made it imperative for a spacious school building. The year 2001, saw the staff and pupils climbing up LADY-HILL. Indeed now the school is on top of the hill enjoying the green spot, breathing fresh air and having plenty of space to romp around. The joint efforts of the loyal and devoted staff, the support of the Management, parents and well-wishers saw the new school building.
The School celebrated its Golden Jubilee in November 2016. Several projects and programmes were undertaken like ‘Grand Parents’ Day’, ‘Parents Talents’ Day’, ‘Parents’ Sports Day’, ‘Food Festival’, ‘Self Employment Skills’ ‘Ex- Students Day’. It was a memorable event for the students of Ladyhill.
Curricular and co-curricular activities with art and drawing, music, dance, Karate and yoga classes and modern methods of teaching with Smart Classes are implemented. At present the School has 900 students on its roll from Std. I to Std. VII. The school is much sought after and the dedicated staff has made a difference in the lives of the students. The students who have moved out have become leaders spreading sunshine in the patch of their stay!

Ladyhill School traces its origin to the pioneering efforts of the Apostolic Carmel Sisters who landed in Mangalore from Bayonne, France and began their mission of education at St. Ann’s Convent, Mangalore. The reputation of St. Ann’s School and its standing in the eyes of the educational authorities drew attention of the public and slowly the Hindus of Mangalore approached Mother Marie Des Anges to open a school for their girls. With her far-sighted vision, she complied with their request and an Elementary School was opened on March 19, 1885, on the premises adjoining St. Ann’s School and was named St. Ann’s Kanarese School. Shortly afterwards a more suitable place was found in Dongerkery where a school building was constructed.

The school opened with 38 pupils on roll. In 1887, the year of the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria, the school moved into this building and was named Victoria Caste Girls’ School. In 1889, it received Government recognition as a Lower Secondary or Middle School. Within a decade the population in that area grew so dense, that sanitary conditions were not conducive to run a school. Hence the school was shifted to the present location, Urwa, on 27th March 1921.
In 1972, the school was bifurcated as Primary School and High School. In 1991-92 the school was raised to a Higher Primary level. A separate Headmistress was appointed. The dedicated and loyal staff members have striven to give their best to the students. The students who have passed out through the portals of this institution carry beautiful memories. They have with the motto of the school ‘Through Effort to Glory’ excelled in every field. With the clamour for English Medium education the number in the school is now on the decrease. However great effort is done to maintain the standard. Curricular and co curricular activities held in the school, School Days and celebrations are a boost to attract admissions to the school. The school has kept alive its goal and its vitality and is marching towards its Centenary!

Mother Aloysia, the second Superior General marched with the times to develop her predecessor’s work. The growing strength in St. Ann’s High School made it imperative for a new school to be opened and hence, a site was bought at Bendore in 1914. A new school St. Agnes was born with 80 children in the English Medium.

From June 1946, a series of dynamic changes took place in the field of secondary education, enforcing Kannada as the medium of instruction for all classes up to Form IV. In spite of a number of protest meetings and a joint Memorandum to the Minister of Education, the school was compelled to switch over to Kannada as First language for the Primary Section. The sisters struggled to obtain exemption from teaching in Kannada in the higher classes and finally triumphed. On 1st November 1948, the Minister for Education, who paid a visit to St Agnes, was impressed by the quality of education imparted and granted the much desired permission on the spot. With the dawn of independence, the three language formula was introduced at all levels, with the Regional Language as the Medium of Instruction, a system which persists till today.
Up till May 1988 the school was a Kannada Primary with classes I –IV and from June 1988 it was upgraded to a Higher Primary School with classes I to VII. The students studying in this institution are excelling in every sphere and those who have moved out of the portals of this institution have become leaders of integrity!

The year 1970 was a landmark in the history of the Apostolic Carmel. It was the centenary of the establishment of the Apostolic Carmel Congregation in India. When the Congregation celebrated with great joy and jubilation the centenary of its ministry in the field of education in India, Mother M. Theodosia, the then Superior General and Sister Fidelis, the Secretary, Apostolic Carmel Educational Society of Karnataka found a void in the scheme of education – the education of the Mentally Challenged Children. So, it was decided to start a school for these children, as a Centenary Memorial of the Apostolic Carmel.

 

                      

Sr. Maria Shruthi A.C.                            Sr. M. Valeriana A.C.

Headmistress                                       Joint Secretary

The school began with five children under the efficient leadership of Sister Maria Jyothi as the service project of the Psychology Department of St. Agnes College, on St. Agnes Convent premises in “The Rest” a cosy house on 4th August, 1970. It was the first school for the Mentally Challenged Children in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi District. The motto chosen for the school was “IN LOVE WE GROW”. It helped in drawing out the children with special needs from cold isolation and neglect, to the warmer atmosphere of love and understanding and provided them with the training necessary for their growth and development.

Inspired by Christ’s Compassion for persons with disability and the charism of our Foundress Mother Veronica, the staff of the Special School, through constant professional endeavour help those under their charge to accept their condition and to use their potential to the maximum extent, thus leading them to live a better quality of life. The education provides the learners skills for daily functional and value-based living and to earn while they learn programmes. The school also functions as a center for outreach programmes. The school helps the differently abled students to achieve as much integral development as possible i.e. intellectual development and healthy social and spiritual fulfillment according to one’s individual potential.

The school building was shifted to its new building in the year 1973 and in 1977 the school was officially separated from St. Agnes College and was administrated as an independent unit of St. Agnes Convent. The St. Agnes College service project was renamed as St. Agnes Special School. At present there are 200 children studying under the school section till they are 18 years of age. Those who are not able to go to the regular school and the dropouts from schools are given opportunity to study through the National Institute of Open Schooling and Karnataka Open School, Bangalore, secondary and senior secondary courses.

St. Ann’s Kannada Higher Primary School was established in the year 1873 by The Apostolic Carmel Congregation, headed by the Superior General, Mother Marie Des Ange. It emerged to answer the then need of the time ‘education of the girl child’. The history of this school coincides with the history of St. Ann’s High School.

Here in this School the sisters have the privilege to mirror the kindness, gentleness, patience and compassion of God to the children entrusted to their care. Most of these children are from economically backward families living in an extremely poor environment. They are therefore provided with value based education for an all round development. They are given uniforms, books, computer education, midday meals and taught yoga, dance, art and craft.
On account of the importance given to the English Medium Schools, all Kannada Medium schools suffer from want of strength and this has affected St. Ann’s Primary School too. The school has spacious class rooms and all other facilities. C.C cameras have been installed in the school. Students participate in Zonal and Taluk level sports events and win prizes. They also take part in Prathiba Karanji competitions. Regular assemblies, National festivals and Annual Days are kept up. Science and Art exhibitions are conducted at the school level. The School band is excellent and is renowned for its public performances such as on Independence Day and Republic Day Celebrations.
The school is achieving tremendous progress in the academic field. It seeks to unlock, explore and exploit the ‘I CAN’ in every child, thus equipping and enabling the child to live a life worthy of its God-given potential. The mission therefore is a work of love and of service to the society.

The History of St. Cecily’s English Higher Primary School is intertwined with the history of St. Cecily’s institutions. St Cecily’s School which was opened in May 1918 with the first three classes had a steady growth over the years and it was a fully fledged High School in 1933. In 1946 Kannada was adopted as the medium of instruction. However the parents wanted an English Medium School for their children. In compliance with the request of the parents, a Private School of English Medium was started in 1959 in the campus with 24 pupils on roll from Classes I to III. Since there was an English Medium School at Manipal the permission was withheld. Timely intervention of Sri. M. Madhwaraj, the then MLA, made the cherished dream of having an English Higher Primary School possible.

 

 

                     

Sr. Maria Maisie A.C.                            Sr. Preethi Crasta A.C.

In 1965 the School obtained permission to open Std. I to IV. In 1966 recognition was obtained from the Education Department and in the consecutive years other Classes V – VII were opened. Until 1978 the administration was looked after by the Head of the High School and in 1978 an independent Headmistress was appointed. As strength increased a new block was constructed and blessed by Rt. Rev. Dr. Basil Salvadore D’Souza, the then Bishop of Mangalore on 20th December1991. This block was used as the English Medium School and the original block housed the Kannada Primary School.

The Golden Jubilee Memorial Block providing all the facilities for the students was blessed on 16.02.2010 by Most Rev. Dr. Aloysius Paul D’Souza, the Bishop of Mangalore Diocese and inaugurated by Dr. Sister M. Olivia A.C., the then Provincial Superior and Sri Oscar Fernandes, Member of RajyaSabha unveiled the Plaque.

The School has made a mark in the history of Udupi. Blessed with an excellent faculty St. Cecily’s is progressing rapidly. The school provides a number of co-curricular activities such as abacus class, chess class, dance class, guitar class, karate class and keyboard class. Students have excelled in sports and have brought laurels to the school. The PTA collaborates and supports in every programme and activity, making the school a large family. The students who have moved out of this institution have made a mark in the society as loyal citizens contributing their share for the peace and progress of humanity!

The ‘Clarion Call’ sounded in Udupi and the Apostolic Carmel responded. The Hindu Gowda Saraswat girls who studied at Victoria Girls’ School, Dongerkeri, Mangalore and adorned the homes of the affluent in Udupi as daughters-in-law, wanted A.C education for their daughters too. If that was their earnest plan, it was the heartfelt cry of Mr. Piedade Alva father of Mr. Joachim Alva to have Catholic education for the girls of Udupi. Mother Aloysia, the then Superior General weighed the pros and cons and took a bold step with the blessings of Bishop Paul Perini SJ. The pioneers were Sisters Agnes, Columba, Jane and Elias.

God marked that auspicious day – May 18th 1918. A horse carriage landed in Udupi at 10.00 p.m. bearing the four sisters who were warmly welcomed by a few people at the parish. They took up their lodging at a small house called Kadbet Bungalow. On May 20th, 1918 they opened the first 3 classes with 9 students on roll. The following year the strength rose to 85. Seeing the progress of their daughters, fresh admissions poured in. Bishop Perini gave a plot to the convent for a new building. The seedling has now become a mighty tree nestling thousands of children satisfying their thirst for education.
The Kannada Higher Primary School gives quality education to the students coupled with Christian values. Love for prayer is instilled in the entire group. Though the number of students has dwindled in other Kannada Medium Schools, by God’s grace this school has full strength. The Balawadi class becomes a feeder school for both Kannada Primary and Preparatory Schools.
Importance is given to both curricular and extracurricular activities. Students learn computer, take part in dance, yoga, cubs, bulbul and the school band. They shine also in sports and music. A kitchen garden is maintained to provide vegetables for midday meals. Under the patronage of St. Cecilia the school is marching towards progress by rendering quality education to all!

It was at the request of the Parishioners of the Milagres Church that Mother Marie des Anges, the then Superior General of the Apostolic Carmel Sisters, started a school in 1895 in a rented bungalow at Hampankatta. In 1932, Mother Josephine, was offered a magnanimous gift of an imposing bungalow and a big compound. The location was in the centre of Falnir and at the heart of Mangalore, and it was known as “Marjil House”. The donor, Mr. Manuel S. Mascarenhas, offered this property to the Apostolic Carmel Sisters.

 

 

            

Sr. M. Silvian A.C.                         Sr. Maria Gloria A.C.

 Headmistress                                Joint Secretary

The transfer of the school from Hampankatta to this spot was done on January 14th, 1932 by Mother Xavier and Classes I to V were opened at Marjil House. Several developments took place between 1960 and 1983. The Kannada Middle School was shifted to Nazareth compound which was purchased in 1939 from Mr. Frank Saldanha. A building was constructed and completed in 1962. The English school got its recognition as an Unaided Private School in November 1965.
The English Primary School was bifurcated from the High School and Sister Maria Sheela was appointed as the Headmistress in June 1980. To accommodate the growing number a new building was considered as a priority. The building work was started on March 19th, 1988, on the site of the old buildings of the Kannada Primary School in the Nazareth compound. On December 22nd, 1989, the English Higher Primary School with the ground and first floor was blessed and inaugurated by Late Bishop Rt. Rev. Dr. Basil S. D’Souza. The Memorial Plaque was unveiled by Sister Veronica, the then Provincial Superior.

The School is growing in tune with the changing demands of the fast developing society. Laudable is the role of the dedicated Pioneers, Staff, Ex-Mariettes, Parent-Teacher-Association, Parishioners and the well-wishers of the institution over the years, without leaving out our A.C. Associates in recent years. The Management and those who steer the wheels of administration now implore God’s blessings on them bowing their heads in deep appreciation and gratitude to their predecessors.

The Golden Jubilee Year 2011 marks a significant milestone in the history of the school. Sensing the needs of the time and to instill love and compassion for the poor and the needy, especially among the students, a number of projects and outreach programmes were implemented. The dedicated staff strives to be shining lights and messengers to carry on with greater zest and vitality, the ideals and aspirations of this institution. The students who pass out of this institution, imbued with faith in God, integrity of character, respect for every individual and pursuit for excellence eventually become agents of education for transformation!

The school owes its foundation to the outstanding parishioners of Milagres Church. Their pressing appeal for a girls’ school within their parish was a welcome idea to Mother Marie Des Anges in 1895.

The nucleus of this school was the outcome of the selfless labour of Mrs. Seraphine and Rita Saldanha who devoted themselves in teaching a band of 42 little children. This school passed into the care of the Apostolic Carmel on 10th February 1895 under the title of St. Mary’s Girls’ School. It got recognition from the Government in 1897 and developed rapidly. In 1909 Class V had to be conducted at St. Ann’s, since accommodation was insufficient. If this school were to continue as a Secondary School, a new building on a new site was a must. It was at this critical period, that providence came to the rescue through the generous gift of the present site and building of the late Mr. M.S. Mascarenhas.

The transfer of the school from Hampankatta to Marjil house took place on January 14th 1932 after the sanction for the same was received. The school was upgraded to Primary School in 1932, with Classes I- VII and seven staff members and three sisters. At present as there is glamour for English Medium and due to the mushrooming of English Medium schools there is the difficulty in getting sufficient students for the Kannada Medium School. However the staff strives to give its best to the students entrusted to their care. Rooted in Christian values, St. Mary’s Higher Primary School promotes excellence in every field.

Mother Aloyisia started a “Holiday Villa” for the sisters of the congregation at Kotekar and in 1920 Stella Maris Convent was established. The Presence and zeal of the sisters attracted the local girls and informal education was going on for a few years. Seeing their earnestness, permission from the department was sought to open a school. Thus on June 15th 1937 Stella Maris Primary School– Kannada Medium was opened and Sr. M. Henrietta was appointed the Headmistress. At that time, Mother Josephine was the Superior General, and Sr.M.Louise was the Local superior. Though on the first day only 4 girls enrolled, the first batch had 17 students.

Vidya Jyothi Higher Primary School, Jyothinagar was started in the year 1989 by Rev. Fr. Valerian D’Souza S.J. Since he was acquainted with the Educational Apostolate of A.C. sisters in Mangaluru he handed over the school to the Apostolic Carmel. Sister Agatha Mary, Late Fr. Valerian D’ Souza S.J. along with Late Miss. Judith Mascarenhas who were involved in the upliftment of the poor people of this area which was called Chapathinagara was renamed as Jyothinagara. They saw the sad plight of the children in the area. Sister Viventia who had just retired took up this task as God’s choice under the guidance of the Provincial Superior and served continuously for 19 years. In 1992, the Education Department granted recognition to Vidhya jyothi Higher Primary School. Sister Viventia took immense trouble to meet the requirements, especially that of the salary of the staff, with the help of the Congregation, well-wishers and donor agencies.

The school could not come under the grant-in-aid pattern, since it was started after the economy measures were clamped down by the Government of Karnataka. In spite of the obstacles, every opportunity was explored by Sister Viventia for obtaining salary and it bore fruit only after her death in 2012. Now the school has 7 teachers and 352 students. Students are given opportunities to grow and excel in drawing classes, bharathanatyam classes, sports and other co-curricular activities. The school celebrated its Silver Jubilee in 2013 and Sister Agatha Mary who was then the Superior General and was the cause for the existence of this school was the President of this function. The Ex-Students who took over the responsibility of this celebration made this event truly a memorable one. The school has transformed the lives of these migrated families and all of them have raised their standard of living and enjoy better facilities!

The Ladyhill Victoria Composite PU College traces its origin to 1870, when the Pioneer Apostolic Carmel sisters landed in Mangalore from Bayonne, France, and started their mission of education at St. Ann’s Convent, Mangalore. In 1885, Mother Marie Des Anges, the first Superior General with her far sighted vision complied with the request made by the Hindus of Mangalore to open a school for their girls. Thus began the first St. Ann’s Kanarese School, which today is transformed into Ladyhill Victoria Girls’ High School.

Modankap is situated in the outskirts of Mangalore and hence the need to provide a High School for girls of the parish and of the locality, since the parish had only a Higher Primary School for girls and boys and the girls had to go to a Hindu school in pursuit of High School studies. Besides, many girls used to go to Bombay seeking jobs; they faced moral danger while working as servants in houses. Hence at the request of the then parish priest Father Edwin Castelino of the Infant Jesus Church, Bantwal, the school was started on June 1st, 1963. There were 40 students on roll. The children were poor but simple and good.

The new building of the school was constructed and blessed in July 1963 and the number rose to 53. From the first batch of students five young girls joined the Apostolic Carmel and what was surprising was that one of them was the Provincial Superior of the Karnataka Province and was the President of the Function when the school celebrated its Golden Jubilee in 2013.

The Ex-students Association was formed in 1985 and is very active till today. They contributed a great deal towards the celebrations of the Golden Jubilee of the School. From 2002 onwards the students of the High School have brought laurels by securing first place in the Science Exhibition at the National level. They have also competed in the Science Exhibition at the South India Zonal Level and all through the past 16 years at the State Level Science Model Exhibition securing a place which is praiseworthy.

The school has been a nursery of vocations to both the Apostolic Carmel and other Congregations. Over the years it has grown from strength to strength in academic excellence and caliber.

The number rose to 72 by July. So June 1st 1971 became the red letter day in the annals of Carmel High School.

The High school was exclusively meant for girls up to the year 2001. Later as many English medium schools opened in and around Kemmannu, there was a decrease in the number of admissions. The Management decided to keep open the education at Carmel Girls High School for boys too from the year 2002.

The history of St. Ann’s, goes back to the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Apparition, who were invited by Bishop Michael Antony to open a school for girls, which they did in 1859. The school was housed in an old building called the ‘Bungalow’. In 1866 a gable of the building gave way and hence the school moved to Jeppu. Soon Bishop Michael Antony got the ‘Bungalow’ overhauled and started a small school calling it St. Ann’s School. This was the school that the Apostolic Carmel sisters took over on their arrival in Mangalore in 1870.

In 1874, the ground floor of St. Ann’s main school building was constructed for the ever increasing number of pupils that sought admission. In the meantime the South Kanara mission passed into the hands of the Jesuits, the worldwide reputed educationists. The Rev. Fr. Urban Stein S.J. from St. Mary’s College, Bombay was appointed Manager of St. Ann’s Girls High School in January 1879.

During the period 1884-1888 the institution was raised to the status of a High School. Government recognition was secured and the school was brought in line with other institutions of the kind in the Presidency. At the first Matriculation Examination, Louisa Coelho won the KrupabhaiSathynathan Gold Medal for ranking first in the Presidency. St. Ann’s High School continued to grow under the matchless leadership of Mother Aloysia. In 1961, a unique honour was conferred on the most outstanding schools in the district and St. Ann’s was upgraded into a Higher Secondary School in 1964.

June 2013 the winds of change swept through the St. Ann’s Campus as the new Carmel CBSE School was started. The P.U.C occupied the High School building and St. Ann’s High School was shifted to the Carmel School. A second floor and the 2nd floor of the T.T.I block connected to it.

Facilities and amenities for the development of this school improved with the ardent love of the local people. As the strength grew, the school was bifurcated into Primary and High Schools. Thus a full pledged High School was started in 1933. St. Cecily’s High School presented its first batch of SSLC in March 1934 for the Public Examinations. The old High School block was built in 1937.

The contentment of the locals with the standard of education provided here was evident as the strength of the school swelled in multitude. The school achieved many accolades in the passing years. In 1946 Kannada was adopted as the Medium of Instruction. However many parents desired their children to be educated in the English Medium. Complying with their requests, the English Medium Primary school was started in 1959 and in 1969 the Kannada Medium High School was merged with the English Medium as a parallel section. The PTA was founded in 1962. St. Cecily’s High School celebrated its Golden Jubilee in 1984 and to mark this occasion the Library block was put up. In 2012 the Platinum Jubilee of the First Batch of SSLC moving out was celebrated and as a mark of remembrance a new spacious hall with 8 classrooms and a laboratory was put up. With the daughters being groomed well, the parents wished that their sons also derive the benefit of good education from St. Cecily’s. Thus admission of boys to the High School commenced from 2012-13. Currently the strength of the students is 521. Hence at present St. Cecily’s High School shines as the beacon light of education for girls and boys as well.

In the year 2000 its strength began to decrease as many Private and Government English & Kannada medium schools opened. This necessitated admitting of boys, thus the name of the school from St. Joseph’s Girls’ High school was changed to St. Joseph’s High School. In spite of all the prevailing and unforeseen difficulties, the school is striving to provide value based education and walk in the footprints of Mother Veronica, the foundress who dreamt of empowerment of Indian women by instilling love of God and self-confidence, walking on the road to success. The school strives towards the all round development of the students. This school has been a nursery of vocations both to the Mother Church and the Apostolic Carmel Congregation.

Carmel English School, Nanjangud was started even before the convent was established there. The Bishop of Mysore, Rt. Rev. Dr. Mathias Fernandes had been repeatedly requesting the Superior General, Mother Theodosia, as well as the then Superior of St. Joseph’s Mysore, Sister Carmencita to start a Nursery School in Nanjangud which could gradually be up graded. Mr. Thomas D’Souza, the Copper Merchant was the spokesperson on behalf of the Catholic families in Najangud pleaded with the Bishop for this venture. On 1st June 1967 on the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Carmel English Nursery was blessed by the Bishop in a rented building. The school started functioning from 4th June 1967. Sister Carmencita applied to the Education Department for the sanction needed to open I Std. but to the disappointment of everyone the request was turned down and the sisters were on the verge of closing down the school. But with the efforts made from many quarters, the long awaited sanction to open I Std.was received on March 28, 1969.

The school started with 20 students on roll. A new school block was built and blessed on 22nd May 1974. The school progressed rapidly – morally, spiritually and academically bagging at least two ranks each year in the VII Std. Examination at the District Level. On 28th May 1966 permission was obtained to start the High School for girls. Many parents and our ex-student boys appealed to the Management to admit boys to the school, as they had no good High Schools in the vicinity. So with the permission from the Department, boys were admitted to the High School in 2015. Today the strength from Standards I to X has reached 1,350. In 2014, Kumari Vindhya bagged the IV Rank at the SSLC State Level examination.

Carmel English School is developing step by step and is eagerly waiting to celebrate its Golden Years of service. The school takes care of the economically weak and needy students. Thousands of students have passed through the portals of this institution, many of whom are rendering credible service to the society and to the world at large.

The beginnings of Carmel School go back to the 1940s. In the year 1946 the Government espoused the policy of divulging education in the regional language.

As this ‘English School’ gained in popularity the Management decided to open an English Medium School in 1951 calling it Carmel English School.

The public of Bailhongal who had tasted the fruit of Christian education in Vidya Mandir at Madanbhavi and Nesaragi requested Sisters to start a regular school for their children. On the day of the Inauguration of Vidya Vikas Kendra, a Residential School for the mentally challenged children in the campus on 31.03.2005, the public and the sisters requested the chief guest of the day, Shri Jagadish Metgud, the local MLA for permission to open a regular School in Bailhongal. The permission was granted immediately. Thus Carmel Vidya Vikas School and also Carmel English Medium High School came into existence managed by the Apostolic Carmel Educational Society.

With the Government policy to have Kannada as the medium of instruction from Std.

Sister Corona, the Superior, Sister Gonzaga and Sister Sebastiana were the pioneers who occupied a rented house on VI cross. In 1962 the school was sanctioned on the European School scheme – the Anglo Indian S. S. C. scheme. In 1966 Aug. 30th a Special G. O. was issued giving permission to switch over from the Anglo Indian School scheme to the State syllabus as per the wish of the Management. Though the parents were free to take their children to European schools, no one asked for a T. C. All credit goes to the little school for its efficiency and popularity. In 1967 on February 16th permission was given to start the High School. Over the years the strength of the school has outgrown. The school that was started in a rented house now has its own spacious buildings.

Reading the signs of the time, the changing scenario in the field of Education and at the request of the educated parents, the Management ventured into the new vistas that is to change over the State syllabus to Indian Council for School Certificate Examination (ICSE). It was an arduous journey to get the NOC from the Government. The Principal Sister Maria Laila left no stone unturned to bring in the political influence to get the NOC from the State Government and finally on 1st Oct. 2012 the School got the NOC and on 19th Nov. 2013 the Temporary Affiliation without much difficulty as the school had all the needed infrastructure. The first batch of 31 students of class X came out with distinctions.

The lush green campus, friendly atmosphere, the individual care bestowed on every child by the Principal and teachers and above all the quality education has led to a great rush for new admissions to the institution.

The school has updated with the new technology such as smart class, SMS and X SEED syllabus. The school stands as one of the best in the city of Bengaluru. Students excel in every sphere bringing laurels to the institution. We owe our success to the blessings of Mary Immaculate the patroness of our school and seek divine Providence as we steer the institution to greater heights.

The city of Mangalore was witnessing a sharp rise in demand for CBSE syllabus. Sr. Agatha Mary A.C the Provincial Superior and her council decided to respond to this situation by establishing Mount Carmel Central School offering CBSE syllabus. This received the blessing and approval of Sr. Vincent A.C, the Superior General of the congregation and paved the way for the setting up of MCCS, in the suburbs of Mangalore in Maryhill.
The Mount Carmel Central School, a co-ed institution, had a humble beginning with only 136 students on roll starting from kindergarten to class V in 2008. Though the school was housed in a small building to start with, it did not deter parents from enrolling their children to the new school. Today within a span of 9 years, MCCS has metamorphosed into a full-scale centre of education offering value based quality education up to senior secondary level. With 1664 students on its roll in 2016-17, the institution is now bustling with activities for the personal and academic growth of students.
The initial two years were spent in great hardship. However, with the support of the management a new structure was built to cope with the increased flow of students and the new and spacious block was inaugurated in 2010. In the same year the school was granted the affiliation up to secondary level. Subsequently, the school was upgraded to Senior Secondary in 2013 providing Science and Commerce streams. Under the leadership of Sr. Melissa A.C the Principal, an additional block with a spacious multipurpose auditorium became a reality and was inaugurated by Sr. M. Susheela A.C the present Superior General in 2014.
The school’s vision “Excellence in holistic human resource development of learners towards building a just and humane society” is realized through its varied curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. With the school motto “Higher and Nobler”, the school has created a conducive atmosphere for the students to excel and reach their goals by aiming always higher.
The academic excellence of the students can be gauged from the fact that all the five batches of class X in the last five years have secured 100% quality result. The first two batches of class XII have also secured 100% result.
Academic excellence apart, the school has excelled in co-curricular activities and has won the International School Award (ISA) from British Council for 2010-13. The school had signed a partnership programme with the British Council in 2010 to work with a UK based Green Bank School, Rochdale, Manchester. As part of this partnership, there was a staff exchange programme between MCCS and Green Bank School in 2011. Our school took part in “The Grand Banyan Project” organized by the British Council in 2011, and we were the privileged winners of a Million Note Book Challenge, for the most innovative campaign of collecting waste papers at the South India level. The school won the re-accreditation for ISA in 2014 for another three years.
To be up-to-date with Modern Technology, the school has smart classes of Educomp and Teach Next in every classroom and SMS facility to get connected with the parents. To encourage interest in extra-curricular activities, students are provided with instrumental music, martial arts, arts and crafts, yoga, drawing, dance both folk and contemporary, communicative English and chess classes to choose from, as per their aptitude. The school encourages sports and games a great deal and as a result a number of students of the school have been able to excel in athletics, karate, chess and skating in State and at National level bringing laurels to the institution. The school is blessed with a spacious playground with facilities to play games like basket ball, football, volleyball, throw ball and ball badminton.
The various clubs such as science club, fine arts club, health and wellness club, eco club, literary club and young global citizens club are functioning effectively. MCCS has some of the best infrastructure facilities such as well equipped laboratories, spacious and updated library, fully equipped audio visual hall, spacious multi-purpose auditorium with a seating capacity of 1200.
The outreach programmes give added impetus and practicality to value education. The class X and XII students bring a sparkle into the lives of the less fortunate through their visits to the homes of senior citizens, schools for special children, ashrams and HIV/AID centre’s, helping them with generous contributions in cash and kind collected on the love offering day in September during harvest festivals on a yearly basis.
The school has regular rapport with the parents of the wards and they are kept informed about their grades and the progress they make. PTA has been started from 2016. The experienced, qualified, trained and enthusiastic faculty both teaching and non teaching form the back bone of our institution. As we look forward to a positive teaching- learning connectivity, a number of refresher courses are organized for the staff for drawing fresh energy.
Realizing its importance of preparing the students for JEE, NEET, CET and other competitive exams, the school has arranged coaching facility to its students by tying up with an external agency. We are proud that a few of our students are pursuing their studies in some of the reputed international colleges in Switzerland, USA, and Australia besides studying in national colleges.
To facilitate enquiry and creativity among the students and teachers, every year the UN theme of the International Year is taken for the School projects like Nutritional benefits of Pulses, Best and Healthy Neem Tree Contest, Eco tourism and so on. The Eco awareness is keenly felt on the campus by planting trees for greenery, home for the various birds, rain and roof water harvesting and vermin composting as manure for the school garden.
With a caring and supportive atmosphere at MCCS, the Mount Carmel family is heading slowly yet steadily towards one world, one family, in a spirit of service, in keeping with vision of our Foundress Mother Veronica.
