The idea of a school as directed by Prior General Rev. Fr. Paul Achady CMI in his report on the canonical visitation to Dharmaram College in August 2016, a ten-member committee was constituted by Rev Fr. Thomas Aykara, Rector Dharmaram College to study the possible programmes that could be undertaken to put to the optimum use of the landed property at St. Mary’s Farm, Kumbalgodu, Kengeri.
The committee visited St. Mary’s Farm on 7th October 2016 and made a survey of the plot and the educational institutions in the nearby area. The committee suggested starting education institutions and to begin with a school in ICSE syllabus in the year 2017.
The thrust of the committee was to provide integrated inclusive education by retaining farming in St. Mary’s campus, incorporating agriculture into curriculum especially organic farming.
The proposed school was sanctioned in the local council of Dharmaram College on November 21st 2016.
