With a firm commitment to value-based education, in line with the vision of the Founder Mgr Raymond Mascarenhas, the Sacred Heart Convent Senior Secondary School, Ludhiana is working relentlessly to uphold the ideals of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Little Flower of Bethany. It was at the request made to Sr Violette by Mr Isa Dass, the Deputy Commissioner of Ludhiana, through Father Hyacinth O.F.M. (Cap.), the missionary priest serving in Ludhiana at that time that the project was initiated. Once the project received the approval and blessings of Mother Macrina, B.S., the Superior General of the Congregation, there was no looking back and the institution was founded in July 1965.MgrSwarbirck O.F.M. (Cap.), Prefect Apostolic of Jallandar, whom Sr Violette first approached, not only gave the project his enthusiastic blessing, but also volunteered to help into spadework.

The Deputy Commissioner of Ludhiana assigned an abandoned engineering college building as the site for the new school. Since the school could be conveniently opened on the feast day of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, it was christened accordingly. The need for a more spacious  building was soon felt in view of the rapidly increasing number of admissions. At this junctureSr Violette left for the United States handing over the reins to Sr Genevieve, the Superior of the Convent, who continued with this pioneering task in the new premises. Sr Miriam, a person of vision and a dynamic personality, took over as principal and rendered yeoman service in the progress of the School. The subsequent principals, Srs Marie Therese, Rosalie, Maria Leena and Chantal, with their progressive and charismatic leadership, continued to hold the Sacred Heart torch aloft. Just when the School had carved a comfortable niche for itself in the society at Ludhiana the need for a +2 wing was felt and through her determined and consistent efforts Sr Chantal set the ball rolling. The dream became a reality and gladdened the hearts of many worried parents when Sr Agnella, the Superior General of the Bethany Congregation in 1997, inaugurated the wing. The School with the +2 wing offering all four streams, is today a premier institute surging ahead both in    academic and in other fields under the able leadership of Sr Helima assisted by a band of    dedicated and talented teachers.

Sacred Heart has many achievements to its credit. Mr Ashwani Kumar, a physics teacher was awarded the Bhai Bal Mukund Gold Medal in Master Science, Programme in Maths, Physics and Statistics by Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana. Ms Preet Kanwal brought honour to the School when she won selection to go to England as part of a national team of the CBSE teachers to revamp the English syllabus. The School continues to strive for excellence not only through its modern infrastructural facilities by way of a newly commissioned audio-visual room, a state-of-the-art library and well- equipped computer rooms, but also through regular programmes for staff development to equip teachers with the latest teaching techniques to broaden their vision and enhance student teacher relationship. Seminars, workshops and other orientation programmes are conducted periodically. The students too before stepping into the challenging competitive world are provided with career-counselling programmes by experts, public-speaking workshops and sex education programmes.

The School enjoys a pride of place in education with its glorious records of hundred percent results in X and XII standard examinations conducted by CBSE and a good number of       distinctions as well.  To date 25 batches have taken X Board examinations and four batches have appeared for the XII. This academic excellence combined with sound personality grooming has enabled students to venture into today’s challenging world gracefully and successfully. Many have added to the School’s success scroll by becoming I.A.S., I.F.S. officers, specialized doctors within the country and abroad, officers in the armed forces, journalists, engineers and in   professions that remained unexplored till recently.

The academic achievements are not confined to Board examinations alone. From its very inception the School has honed the creative energy of students to win laurels both at national and international competitions and scholarships.


All accolades and laurels would be incomplete without a mention of the value-based education imparted to students with the aim of sensitizing them to the needs of those less fortunate and nurturing them into wholesome personalities. Students, teachers and helping staff alike in the conducive confines of the school prayer room, enjoy precious moments of solitude and prayer. The outreach programmes give added impetus and practicality to value education.The students of the Leadership Training Service bring a sparkle into the lives of the less fortunate through their visits to the homes of senior citizens, helping in schools for handicapped children and running medical camps in slums and villages. Generous contributions in cash and kind during the Social Awareness Week conducted on a yearly basis foster humanism and magnanimity in the students while at the same time easing the pain of those they reach out to.  Two balwadis, a girls’ hostel, and a tailoring centre, training women to be economically independent are part of the outreach programme.

Parents and benefactors have never shown themselves tardy in extending their co-operation, encouragement and support for a good cause. On the contrary their initiative and drive is highly appreciable. The school imbued with zeal and a spirit of service in keeping with the teachings of Jesus Christ continues its varied endeavours within the curriculum and beyond, in making it an exemplary institution in the city.
