Venganoor community

St. Francis Senior Secondary school was started in the year 2001. It is located in Venganoor a  village  close to the Vizhinjam harbour. This  school was  started as the upgradation of the St. Francis  Lower Primary school at Kalluvettankuzhy which is  half a mile away from this campus. This is a place known for its tourist attractions like beaches and resorts. We  have  students  hailing from  different  socio - economic background .  Following the spirit of our venerable founder , we  sisters take care to reach out to children who are unprivileged and underprivileged. Many students  receive scholarship for their  studies.  We have a  committed team  of teachers including  sisters  and we impart  education in tune with the Salesian spirituality. Our students  are  well aware of  our Patron St. Francis De Sales and our Founder. In fact one block of our school building is named after our venerable Founder.  Currently we have 800 students on role and 50 teaching  staff.  Sr.Vincy Puthenpurackal is the Superior of the community and Manager of the school  and Sr. Lisa Therese is the Principal   of  the school


Sales NIvas  convent was opened on 6th January 2002.  As the existing community was away from the school a small  house near the  school was  converted into the convent.  And a new convent was inaugurated in the same year on August 25th.  Though  the sisters  are engaged in the school activities, we  find time to  visit families, organise prayer groups  and  support the local community in different ways.  Our presence in this area over four decades  have made great contributions   for the  local parish community  and people around.  We  have  active Participation in the  activities of  St. Peter’s Parish . sisters teach  catechism in two  sub-stations on Sundays.  At present  there are 7 sisters in the community.
