History of Canossa Convent Girls’ Inter College, Ayodhya

Within few years of hard work of Canossians Sisters (Management)in Ayodhya the whole environment wore a new look in the field of education. The children were lively, alert, polite and clean and very much influenced by the divine and religious principles together with academics. Today the strength of the school has risen by leaps and bounds. As the school made progress in various curricular and co-curricular activities the expansion of it also became necessary. The Management felt that it should be raised to Intermediate. The students who completed class X had no proper schools to study in this locality. Thus school re-extended upto class Intermediate.

In July 1982 ground floor of the science block was blessed and few sections of the classes were shifted to it. In May 1983 the process of the closer of the boys section was started. It should be mentioned here that the Management had to face lots of problems regarding this. The parents even sought legal help for the continuation of the boys’ section. The Management underwent terrible turmoil in this regard until in October 1983 a favourable judgment regarding the boys’ section was obtained from the court and then it was decided that the Institution will purely be for the girls. In August 1983 few more classes were shifted to the new block and the existing English medium classes were shifted from the social centre to the primary building. On 25th January, 1985 the blessing of the new block was performed by Rev. Fr. Stanny D’Souza and the republic day was celebrated in the new block.

Classes VI to X were conducted in the new building. A wall around the plot was constructed to protect the children. In 1987 the recognition for Intermediate classes was obtained from the board of education Allahabad. The hard work and farsightedness of Mother Rosina Sala, Sr. Teresina Chilampil and Sr. Grace Keelath is to be remembered in the development of the school to the status that it is now. Now in 2021 the school in Cantt.Ayodhya caters for over 3000 students and hundreds of students have gone out to the wide world through the portals of this Institution, many of them securing high grades in their examinations. This reflects on the selfless dedication and commitment of ourPrincipals andTeachers.
