ST:George English Medium School

Mar Elias Higher Secondary School was the first educational institution set up by the Church. It was established in 1941 with medium of instruction as Malayalam. However towards the end of 20th century, English education became not only a passion but also a necessity among parents and students. The language was a must for job- seekers abroad and this resulted in increased demand for English medium schools and colleges. The Church, realizing the need of the hour and requests from parishioners, decided to set up an English Medium School thereby providing a better opportunity for the children in the parish and nearby villages. It would also help make English education available to medium and low income group parishioners

Sri D Korah, Vattekkatu, a veteran member of the parish and a retired head master was running a Nursery school since 1979 in the name of Pulary English Medium School in a building attached to the church. In 1985 he volunteered to handover the school to the Church. Accordingly, on 23rd April 1985, after the Holy Mass, he handed over the ownership of his School to the parish. HB Benyamin Mor Osthatheos, Metropolitan for the Simhasana Churches, received keys for the parish and thus the St.George English Medium School came into being. Smt Santha P Paul and late Kumari P Paul were the first two teachers.

In 1985 itself the School got recognition from the government, when Sri. T.M.Jacob was the local MLA and also the Education Minister of Kerala. In 2003, the institution was upgraded to Upper Primary School.

The School has already achieved a distinct name among the Educational Institutions of the State. It has become a model institution with committed teachers and disciplined students. Presently there are more than 600 students. The School is well equipped with modern amenities and laboratories and keeps itself abreast with all modern teaching aids and tools.

The School is administered by a Board of six elected members. A Manager appointed by the Church Committee looks after the routine administrative matters. The Vicar of the Church will be the President of the Board.

Presently Sri K.K.Baby Kizhakkumparambil is the Manager and the board members are Shri .Anil Ouesph, Kannothukudiyil, Eldhose Karipara, Geevarghese Issac, K.K.Kurakose and Mathew Varghese,Kottalil.

Sri George P Kuriakose - the present Head Master has been in office since 1997 and is leading the School to greater heights with committed vision and devotion
