Sacred Heart Convent School, Jamshedpur takes pride in its rich heritage,
rooted in the vision of Venerable the Mother Veronica the Foundress of the
Apostolic Carmel Congregation, whose Bicentennial birth anniversary we
celebrate this year.
Venerable Mother Veronica in her foresightedness founded the Apostolic Carmel, at Bayonne France in 1868, with an aim of education of young girls of all castes and creed of India. She was an accomplished English woman who sacrificed her all in order to bequeath to the world a legacy for the education of girls and empowerment of women. Although it is so long since she walked the earth, she is still very much alive in her numerous institutions spread all over India, Kuwait, Sri Lanka, Bahrain, Italy, Pakistan, East Africa, France and Germany. Her spirit is guiding us, her daughters to keep her vision in focus down the ages and work for the education of all. May she continue to guide us, through the coming years.
Our school celebrated this auspicious day. This grand event was a tribute to her remarkable legacy. During the fest, the students of class 12, showcased their creativity and passion through a captivating play that brought Mother Veronica’s inspiring life to the stage. It was a momentous occasion that highlighted the school’s commitment to academic excellence along with reinforcing the values that Mother Veronica cherished; knowledge, empathy and a deep faith in God.
