The dream of having a convent in a poor area was materialized when the Arch bishop of Verapoly Rt. Rev. Dr. Daniel Acharuparambil, invited us to open a convent in Valappu. The then parish  priest of Our Lady of Perpetual Help church Fr.Martin Pallath informed the Bishop that a house belonging to Mr. V.J. Paul was available to start the convent. The house was very close to the parish and convenient for the sisters for spiritual needs and for parish work. As soon as the information regarding the availability of the land and house for the convent, the Provincial Superior Sr. Rosy Joseph and her team went to meet the Bishop. It was decided to buy the plot with a house even though the cost was very high. On the feast of the Most Holy Trinity, the convent was inaugurated by the Archbishop, Dr. Daniel Acharuparambil on 27th April1999.

The bishop suggested to start a nursery class and tuition centre for the higher classes in the parish for the maintenance of sisters. The main work of the sisters was parish work and family apostolate. The nursery school conducted in the parish was not a success as the number of students were becoming less and had to be given up in 2001. After 6 months the sisters visited the houses and 75 students turned up for admission to the nursery. Thus on 3rd January 2002   the Carmel Nursery School was inaugurated in the convent building. On 31st May 2003 was the blessing of the new school building. Vicar General Fr. Sebastian Louis was the chief guest for the day. On 11th February 2009, the foundation stone was laid for the new High school buil ing. On 27th may 2010 the new High School was inaugurated by the auxiliary bishop Rt. Rev. Dr. Joseph Karikkassery. A plot of land of an acre was purchased in view of getting affiliation from the ICSE board. The school was upgraded to Standard IX in 2013 since we received provisional affiliation from the ICSE board. The first batch appeared for the ICSE board exam in 2015. The school maintained cent percent resul till 2020. The sisters continue to toil towards the transformation of society through the apostolate of education , and other activities in the parish.
