They were truly angels that came to the Nursery School, which first began with just 6 tiny tots, in a small room, attached to Sacred Heart High School.
It all began in 1954. After India’s Independence and the switching on to Malayalam, as medium of instruction, parents who already had the benefit of an English education at Sacred Heart’s began clamoring for a private school up to classes IV, with the medium of English.
Under the guidance of Mrs.Banya and Mrs.Priyadharshini, who were running the well known Baby Land, our teacher of tiny tots, Sister Marie Jose, with Sister Milburga as Headmistress, the little school sprang up and began flourishing. As it grew in numbers, so it did in popularity and was named Holy Angels’ School. Then in Dharmadam, in 2000 a new building came up. Thanks to the efforts of Sister Anila, Superior and Headmistress, the building came up in less than a year. Sister Noella got the Panchyath and PTA to see that the road to the new school was tarred.
Holy Angels English Medium School shifted to Dharmadam from the premesis of Sacred Heart Convent and travelled up and down to Dharmadam daily to conduct classes. It was at this juncture that the superior of Sacred Heart Convent, came to know that a plot of land, consisting 50 cents of land with a decent house belonging to Prof. NC Mathew, was put up for sale Mr. Mathew, Sr. Maria Purifica’s brother expressed his desire that his house could be used by some religious congregation as he was moving to his home town in Kottayam. Then further proceding were forwarded to get permission from superior General and it was granted. The registration was done in May 2007. Rt, Rev. Dr. Varghese Chakkalakal Bishop of Kannur blessed the house and said first mass on July 5th 2008, the convent was named as Holy Angles Convent Dharmadam. The convent started functioning with Sr.Tessy Augustian as Superior, Srs. Desidaria and Jwala as community members. Hence the educational institution Holy Angles Dharmadam is continuing fruitfully.
Holy Angels’ children, enlightened by the touch of a good early education and values, have carried them to the ends of the earth in service to God, their fellow men and country.
