School History

Kinnigoli, a small village located at the west seaboard of Mangaluru Taluk, fascinates everyone with its captivating beauty of nature. The inhabitants are blessed with an Educational Institution that has a reputation throughout the State for its culture, proficiency in education, religious and communal harmony, especially through its extraordinary education campaign; it has made a remarkable impact in and around the place and has won the hearts of many. And it is none other than the St Mary's Central School, the brainchild of  Rev. Fr Alfred  J. Pinto.

St Mary’s Central School is an English Medium Co-educational school affiliated to CBSE Delhi which came into existence on the 1st of June 2012, creating a milestone in the history of Kinnigoli. Fr. Alfred was an absolute visionary and his dream was to provide qualitative education with fewer fees to the poor children and even in poverty share the richness of education that leads them towards a bright future. In the beginning, the school had 1st, 2nd and 3rd standards but later in 2013-14, 4th and 5th standards were added up

In 2015, after Rev Fr Alfred was transferred, Rev Fr Vincent Francis Monteiro, took charge of the Management. His keen interest in the school pulled up the slow-motion progress to greater heights. As a result, the school opened the 6th std in 2014-15, the 7th std in 2015-16, and the 8 and 9th std in 2016-17. The school had only 50 students at its opening but today it proudly stands with the gigantic strength of 540 students. And we are proud to say that the school has created its own identity by providing excellent education and it is considered as one of the best CBSE schools.

We are absolutely delighted to make you known about Rev Fr Vincent Francis Monteiro whose selfless service and constant support has attained glory and fame to the school. Joining hands with the Manager, the members of the administration do work zealously for the betterment of the school. It is their good will that has provided a well-maintained school building and well-sophisticated infrastructure to educate our students.

Now, Rev Fr Sunil Praveen Pinto, the Principal never leaves a stone unturned to encourage students to do well in their studies and to take active part in all the extracurricular activities. He is the binding force between teachers and students whose committed life, untiring works and human approach are the secrets behind the success of the school.

The saying “How you are depends on what type of environment you are brought up” goes well with our school as we, with the support of our generous donors strive to provide value based education that promotes intellectual, spiritual, and emotional growth  to our students. We pray that God may bless them all profusely with a bright future. May our students by their exemplary lives continue our good works and spread the fame of our school far and wide. Our earnest wish is that the name of our school may shine like a bright star all over the globe.

From 2018, June onwards, we have new Manager to our school who is none other than Very Rev Fr Mathew Vas. He is a man of vision and who works tirelessly towrds the growth of the esteemed institution. Fr Sunil has been transferred to Vittal and Rev Fr Lancy Joel Saldanha has taken the charge as new Principal in June 2019. To mark a remarkable feather to the institution the construction of 3rd Floor and new Hall is on progress. We hope and pray that with the providence of God all the works that we have planned may be accomplished. The school is moving ahead with the contributions of our donors and wellwishers. 

The first batch of 10th Standard  students have appeared for CBSE Board examination and all have passed in flying colours. Master Agneya Bhat is the top scorer in the batch.
