Â The significant event of entering Kodagu (Coorg) district created ripples of joy in Bethany. Sr Eliza and Sr Cleta from St Joseph’s Convent, Kalpetta were requested to go to Ponnampet to pioneer the work of opening a convent and an English medium school. Their presence was accepted gratefully by the public.
The school started functioning on 22 May 1979 in the church building till the school building was ready. The convent building was blessed and inaugurated on 28 January 1981 by Most Rev Mathias Fernandes.
