St. Paul’s High School is situated in the rural area of Balkunje, known for hills and valleys decked with fields and forests. On 30th June 1975, the then Parish Priest of Balkunje Rev. Fr Alexandar Lobo toiled hard to start this school with 81 students asthere was no High School in this vicinity. On 9July 1975 the foundation for the School Building was laid by Rt. Rev. Dr Basil D’Souza. Within a year with the co-operation of the local people the building was built up. Then the school management was handed over to the Bethany Sisters and in 1980 the school was conferred the permanent recognition. This school was a boon to the rural poor who could enter through the portals of this institution and get educated to gain status in the society.

As a pioneer of the school Sr Marie Imelda shouldered the responsibility and was appointed as the first Headmistress and her successors were Sr Joyce, Sr Emerita, Sr Annette, Sr Rose, Sr Mediatrix, Sr Valeria, Sr Denzil, Sr Mabel, Sr Virginia, Sr Donalda, Sr Maureen and Sr Joyceline. They served this institution along with their dedicated Staff and brought smiles on the faces of many teenagers who otherwise had to struggle hard to complete High School education. Presently Sr Paulette is heading the institution since 2010with 5 teaching and 2 non-teaching staff.

Amidst difficulties such as lack of transport facilities and decrease in student strength due to English Medium Schools, the school offers best education and trains the students to face challenges of life. The school caters to the needs of the students by providing various facilities such as Laboratory, Library, Computer Education and spacious playground. The School also takes keen interest in faith formation and value education. Thus there have been a number of vocations for Priestly and Religious Life.

We march ahead with trust and confidence under the Patronage of St Paul to run the race and to win the battle by living the values held high by our Patron saint.
