History of the school
Sacred Heart National School was envisioned and is being established by Rev.Fr. JosephOravanathadathil alias Fr. Joy, a member of the Society of the Missionaries of Compassion. SH National School is run by the Angels of Mercy, a Trust affiliated to the Missionaries of Compassion, which runs several institutions in India and abroad. This School follows CBSE stream.
Sacred Heart National School is ensconced at a picturesque location at Joy Nagar, Vellannur,nearChathamangalam in the Kozhikode District of Kerala. Vellanur is a small village about 23 km away from the historic city of Calicut.The educationist in Fr Jose desired to herald changes in the socio-educational scenario of this village,which has a long way to go in achieving higher human and socio economic niveau.Hence the commitment to the cause.
It was a divine intervention which directed Fr.Jose to Chathamangalam on the 9th of April 2004. He decided to start a School with the name Sacred Heart English School at Chathamangalam .Eventually he took houses for rent and on Tuesday the 1st of June 2004 the School was started for the first time at Chathamangalam with a kindergarten. Mrs. Shiny Thomas was appointed as the Headmistress.
Fr. Jose often reasoned for every individual, God has a definite plan. It is up to the individual to carefully listen to His voice and act. It is this voice coupled with the thirst to build a haven for students who seek enjoyable learning and impassioned mentoring ,an institution which is "High in quality with low fees structure” ,his deep rooted desire to work for the upliftment of the socially and economically marginalized children based on his staunch belief that “Education is Future” SacredHeart English School was born.
