Vidya Jyothi Higher Primary School, Mangaluru

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!
