The long cherished dream of the residents of Kallianpur and the initiative of The Late Rev.Fr G. L. Da Cruz was replied in 1979 with the birth of Milagres English Medium School with a Kindergarden. Ms.Thecla Pereira an able and brave teacher took charge of 12 tiny tots. Under her admirable leadership, the strength increased to 40 by 1980. Through the school started from a small shed, the courage and perseverance of Ms. Pereira and her assistant Ms. Veera Furtado along with the benevolent gaze of Our Lady of Miracles sustained the school.
The institution in 1981 took the first rung up of the ladder by the starting of standard under the guidance of Sr. Hildegard SRA as the head. Another step up the ladder was taken by the institution with the inauguration of the school building in 1982 by the Late Bishop Basil D’souza.
The Apostolic Carmel management took over the institution in 1986 ushering in new atmosphere with Sr. M. Priya A.C. as the head. A milestone was crossed in 1988 with the beginning of the high school with the encouragement of the Correspondent Rev. Fr. William Gonsalves. The dedicated service of the faculty over the years has borne fruit as today every class comprises of 2 divisions.
In the year 1988, we all witnessed and saw the birth of high school with the batch of 39 students who passed outwith a 100% result in 1991. The first correspondent, Rev. Fr. William Gonsalves was a pillar of strength & encouragement to the students & teachers alike. That little step taken in 1988 has now covered 30 years with the school taking giant steps in the educational field. The dedicated service of the faculty over the years has borne fruit as today the school boasts of 2 divisions for every class, filled with students. The infrastructure of the school has changed and we can boast that it is on par with any modern school.
In the year 2008, the nuns of the Apostolic Carmel handed over the running of the school to the priests & Fr. Vijay Lobo became the first Headmaster who took over the reins of both the primary & the high school.
