Named after our revered Founder, Mgr Raymond Mascarenhas – St Raymond’s High School, Vamanjoor, occupies the pride of place among the rural people. Prior to its foundation on July 21, 1984 there was hardly a high school in the vicinity though there were four Government higher primary schools, all in full strength. The result was that there were several students mostly girls, who discontinued schooling. The need for a high school in the area was even more strongly felt with the influx of landless families migrating into the surrounding villages resulting in a sharp increase of the local population. Hence an application by the Bethany Educational Society was submitted to the Department in 1983 to start a high school at Vamanjoor.

The following year saw the laying of the foundation stone for the proposed high school building. Sri Belle Bhavani Rao B.A., L.T., a noted educationist, was the chief guest and Sri N. Shiva Rao, M.L.C, who had been a pillar of support, also graced the occasion. The School commenced its first academic year on August 1, 1984 with 69 students and two staff members. Though co-educational the target group was the adolescent girls.

Sr Mariebelle was the first headmistress of the School. It was during her tenure the school   building was constructed, which the late Bishop of Mangalore, Rt Rev. Basil D’Souza, blessed and inaugurated on February 23, 1985. The first batch of 43 students took their SSLC Examination in March 1987 with a 98% success. Hitherto 1244 students in 13 batches have completed their SSLC examination with excellent results. The Department granted   permanent recognition to the School on May 9, 1989.  Sr Christella took charge of the School in June 1993 as headmistress. The PTA, which began in1994, makes a significant contribution to the wellbeing of the School and society.  

Though most of the students of St Raymond’s hail from the economically backward families with lack of facilities for learning at home, the unflinching dedication of the staff has transformed them dramatically, both academically and socially with the blessings of our Father Founder.
