ST. MARYíS HIGH SCHOOL- ALPHONSENAGAR
Getting in touch with our Old Students, Benefactors and Well wishers!
Alphonsenagar is a village 6kms away from Chennarayapatna, town and taluk headquarters. Itís a remote village of families rehabilitated from Shettihalli. Due to construction of Gorur Dam, the people ost their fertile land and as compensation the present land that is barren and dry was given by the Government.
The people of Shettihalli migrated to Marianagar, Jyothinagar, Josephnagar and Alphonsenagar. The then Bishop of Chikmagalur Diocese, Rt. Rev.Dr Alphonsus Mathias accommodated these people in these places, and constituted these parishes. But there were no houses, no fertile land nor the facility for education.
The Sisters of Charity of Mangalore Province reached out to Alphonsenagar and started a school in 1981. As it grew, the high school section was opened in 1988. Since then thousands of boys and girls have been educated. And now the time has come to celebrate the silver jubilee of the school. We appeal to our ex-students, well wishers and friends to come and join us in the celebration and enable the school to provide even greater service.
In view of this, the following needs have been identified:
- 4 classrooms for P.U.C.
- A Scholarship Fund to provide School uniform and books for the poor students.
- An audiovisual room with an LCD projector
- Computer lab.
We appeal to your generous contributions. They may kindly be sent to:
