St Cecily's English Higher Primary School, Udupi

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.

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. Sr M. Olivia A.C., the then Provincial Superior and Sri Oscar Fernandes, Member of Rajya Sabha 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!
