"I slept and dreamt that life was joy, I awoke and saw that life was service, I acted and behold, service was joy." These words suit very well to the history of Bethany Convent School Limboi, Gujarat. It is situated in Banaskantha District of North Gujarat. The school is under the management of the Bethany Charitable Trust, Gujarat. Impressed by the service of Bethany sisters, in Mangalore, the former Archbishop Rev. Dr Stanislaus Fernandes, invited Bethany sisters to render their service in the Archdiocese of Gandhi Nagar, Gujarat. Keeping founder’s charism to serve the poorest of the poor specially the empowerment of girl child, Bethany Convent Limboi, the first house of the Bethany Congregation in Gujarat was opened with four pioneer sisters on 01 October 2006. SrLoyaline was appointed as the first Superior.

Shortly after the arrival,on 09 July2007the English Medium Schoolwas opened with 10 students. Classes were held in the smallresidence of the sisters for two years in Limboi village. Thereafterthe hostel building was put up for girls. Thereafter the residence of sisters and school was shifted to the hostel building in 2009 up to 2013. On 10 June2009, Gujarati Medium School was started with a view of educating the poor children of the village. With the collectiveefforts of the sisters, support and encouragement of the parish priest Rev. Fr Isidore Almeida, the mission is in progress. A new school building was constructed under the leadership of Rev Sr Mariette the then Provincial Superior and and was inaugurated by our Rev Sr Wilberta BS on 01 October 2013 the then Superior General.

The initial first six years were of intense struggle for the sisters due to lack of accommodation, new language, culture, weather and insufficient means of maintenance. The accepted challenges served to be the best opportunities to move confidently towards the goal. The strength of the school both in Gujarati as well as English medium increased steadily and it is upgraded from Primary toHigher Primary by 2014.In the year 2016 the school was upgraded toHigh school in both the medium.At present strength ofthe school from Pre-Primary to IX Std is 750 students. Twenty eight teachers and fivenon-teaching staff render committed services. Education towards thefullness of life for all is the goal towards which supreme efforts are made.

"No one can predict to what heights you can soar; even you will not know until you spread your wings." Amidst numerous challenges the Headmistress and staff keep moving ahead rendering their committed services to the poorand the neglected children of the backward communities of North Gujarat.Yes indeed life was joy, life was service and service was joy.
