De Paul, its history and growth

Over the past 46 years De Paul has been carrying with it a unique record which, perhaps, De Paul alone can claim. From the very beginning to this day, it has kept up the record of 100 % pass in the S.S.L.C. Examination unbroken. Now the 40th batch is coming out. We expect that the result this time also will be a 100 %.

'' Thank You ''

We are very grateful to all those who have helped us, especially to our former students and former faculties for making the Golden Jubilee a grand Success.

De Paul, its history and growth

Now De Paul School has become a complete School with Classes from L.K.G. to Std. XII. Well furnished Computer lab, Science labs, Play ground, Library, auditorium and Smart Class room are the attractions of De Paul. De Paul School has slowly entered in to the film world in the year 2007 with the School Band troupe playing a small role in the feature film “Kathaparayumpol”. In 2008 the students and band troupe had their presence in the film, “Veruthe Oru Bharya”. In December 2008, the school itself produced a tele-film by name “Rajuvinte Christmas”. The credit is that the concept, story, location and actors (both staff and students) are all from the school itself. It was telecasted twice in the Jeevan T.V.-on December 25, 2008 and January 3, 2009. Two more short films are produced by the school in the followings. They are : 1) 'Santha Rathri Thiru Rathri' 2) 'Every Bud is to Blossom' The sincere efforts of a team of well experienced, qualified and efficient teachers is the force behind the success of De Paul. The management is well aware of it. The cordial relationship fostered by the institution and ex-alumni is marvelous. Fr. Thomas Madathinal is now guiding this School as its Principal.

De Paul, its history and growth

In the educational development of Idukki District, De Paul E.M.H.S.S., Thodupuzha, has a unique place. No other institutions of this kind can ever claim such a credit. When the school is marching its 50th year of service, it is keeping up the same glamour and reputation in the very start with which it attracted the minds of people far and near. It is the Vincentian Community that came forward to Thodupuzha with the idea of De Paul English Medium School to impart quality education. It was started in 1964 on a beautiful hill near to the heart of Thodupuzha town. The people, irrespective of caste, creed and religion, welcomed the idea of the school and took to their hearts and encouraged and helped in every way possible to develop and strengthen it. Sri M. M. Mathew, Moongamackal (Rtd. R. D. D.) is specially to be remembered among them. His help, co-operation and direction are invaluable in this attempt. Today after 46 years, Depauleans are rendering valuable services in key positions every where, in the State, outside the State and abroad. They have only good things to speak about De Paul and good feelings to share with anyone. They show an eagerness to reveal that De Paul is behind all their achievement and gains in life.
