Carmel School

History Of Carmel School

Carmel School, Durgapur is a Christian School established and administered by the Apostolic Carmel Educational Society of West Bengal, in the Roman Catholic Church. The School is under the religious jurisdiction of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Asansol. The arrival of the Apostolic Carmel in Durgapur in 1964 with a focus on education at MAMC was a beacon light to this industrial town. The School at MAMC had made a good beginning and seeing the selfless effort and hard work of the sisters, the Steel Township, the then Hindustan Steel Ltd approached the sisters to start a school in the township for their children. The offer was gladly accepted as it was an opportunity to further the vision of our Founder Mother Veronica – to transform the society through education and other works of mercy. On 18th July 1966 the branch school at Steel township saw the light of day at St. Paul’s Road with 187 students in the Nursery, Kindergarten and Cl.I. However, it was shifted to Guru Nanak Road on 15th January 1976. Because of the tremendous progress made by the school during this period, the sisters had to concede to the public demand to begin the Higher Secondary section in 1992. The School is recognised by the Educational Department, Secondary Branch of the Government of West Bengal and has been affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, New Delhi. The School aims at the Education of the Catholic community around and extends the service to members of other communities to the extent possible. The school stands for academic excellence, development of skills and character formation, based on the love of God and service of people, as modelled on Jesus Christ, with a view of training citizens, remarkable for an all – round development and sincere commitment to God and Country.
