Ladyhill English Higher Primary School, Urwa, Mangaluru

In 1885, Mother Marie Des Anges the First Superior General of the Apostolic Carmel, with her far-sighted vision, complied with the earnest petition of the Hindus of Mangalore to open a school for their daughters. Encouraged by the Director of Public Instruction, Mother Marie Des Anges opened an Elementary School on 19th of March 1885 on the premises adjoining the present St. Ann’s school. Later school was shifted to Urwa, Ladyhill in 1921. Number of admissions rapidly increased.

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. 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!
