GLIMPSES OF 25 GLORIOUS YEARS

The noble minds believed that man is divine and he is the image and likeness of his creator. The whole purpose of education is the unfolding of this belief. Teaching, learning, painting, music, dance and drama, all these activities have only one purpose, the total realization of ‘personality. In Bethany Vidyalaya we are driven by the belief that there is so much of God’s goodness in every man. This goodness unfolds in all its glory, providing the right ambience for children to grow and ‘Shine’.

We have miles and miles to go through rain and sunshine but our goal is fixed. Bethany Vidyalaya is a Christian catholic convent School run by the congregation of Sisters of the Imitation of Christ, founded by Archbishop Mar Ivanios, the Servant of God, a great scholar and educationist. Bethany sisters of Trivandrum province shouldered the responsibility of spreading the light of education to the children from different backgrounds and different financial conditions and environment. They have taken up this noble mission of imparting quality education to the children of Bethany and provide them; with a base to nurture their hidden talents with the motto of ‘Wisdom, Faith and Purity’. Bethany Vidyalaya has give not only education but also preference to inculcate discipline, culture, mannerism and patriotism in students.
