Bethany Convent School, Tora, Bargarh, Odisha was established on 7th July 2009. Sr Shaila was the first Principal and Sisters Alice, Kamla Minz and Kanti Dung Dung were the first teachers.

Bethany Convent School is located in Western Odisha. Tora is a village, which is 6 kms away from the Bargarh town. With hardly 30 students the school began in a rented house where the sisters were residing. The school is situated in the village where mostly the scheduled caste and Other Backward Classes live. The students in the school are mostly from the agricultural and labour class background. They are economically poor. They depend upon the rains for the growing of the crops. Since this part of Odisha receives very less rain, they are often a prey to drought. Every year the State and the centre declare it as drought hit area. Bethany Convent School’s thrust is to educate these less fortunate children and bring life to these God’s favoured ones.  98% of the parents of the children are illiterate. They cannot afford to pay fees in the other affluent schools. So they get their children admitted to Bethany Convent School.

At present the strength of the school is 510 among whom 232 are boys and 278girls. We have classes from Nursery to Class VIII with 22 teaching and 5 non-teaching staff.  

The School provides free education for the economically poor children. It is established on the solid foundation of national integration, respect and appreciation of the pluralistic culture of India. The students are provided with facilities of e-learning, smart boards and computer labs. Yoga and meditation is conducted regularly to increase the concentration power of the students.

The school has organised outreach programmes every year. They go out to nearby villages and engage themselves in adult literacy. They also instruct them on health and hygiene with the help of the teachers. They carry out cleanliness drive as well. On the 30th of April 2014 the school received NOC from the State Government.
