Lourdes Central School

Lourdes Cenralo School  with  CBSE syllabus was started by Fr Bernard D’Souza to prepare the students for competitive exams and to give opportunity to children who came from abroad. He started English Medium classes in Kindergarten and 1st class in the year 1999 at commercial complex building. In the meantime the southern portion of the Church land was leveled. At the extreme end a huge building was put up on eastern side with three floors and western end with one floor. The permission for the school was up to IV class only for kannada medium.

After Fr. Bernard D’Souza was transferred Fr Joseph Peter Tauro came as manager of Lourdes Central School. The school had reached 6th class and he got permission for 5th class that too kannada medium as per government policy. Thereafter application was made for English medium from 6th class onwards. Permission was granted by the education department no 134-2003-04 on 28. 11. 2003 through the good office of Sr Benny Pinto. Thereafter we received NOC to run the school under CBSE syllabus from the government through much effort dated 29. 11. 2003. We applied for affiliation to CBSE, New Delhi. The commission came for inspection on 27.10 .2004. Mr. John Sharma of Gaziabad, Fr Cyril Sequeira of Meerut, Mr. Vivian Sequeira of our parish helped us in the inspection. We received Affiliation no. 830120/2005-06 dated 10. 01. 2005 for three years.
In the meantime steps were taken to provide facilities; two floors above the auditorium were raised and on the second floor laboratories, physics, chemistry, biology, Mathematics were made, one more room for the computers was made, a large library was made and all these were furnished plus class rooms in second floor and third floor were made and furnished. On the third floor a large A.V room was made. Adjoining the school, an Administrative block was built. The administrative block and all the facilities were blessed by most Rev Dr. A. P. D’souza, Bishop of Mangalore and inaugurated by Mr. Oscar Fernandes, M.P on 13. 03. 2005.
After completing the main project we decided to have a separate building for kindergarten and first and second class as their system of education would not go well with higher classes, where more concentration is required. The new block was planned at the western end of the ground with 2 floors On the basement we have the canteen. The entire block was inaugurated by Fr Wilson Witus D’Souza, secretary CBE and blessed by Msgr Denis Moras Prabhu, Vicar general on 03.06.2008. We installed a 20KVA diesel, acoustically concealed generator with wiring and self starting costing us Rs. 5 lakhs.
The entire ground was leveled and in front of the kindergarten block, a barricade across the ground floor was put to prevent traffic and make the play zone free. The ground was provided with a basket ball court. We applied for senior secondary school for science stream. We got permission for senior secondary under the affiliation no. 830 120 dated 14.01.2008. We have started the classes in Science stream PCM computer and PCM biology.
