Lourdes Convent... an introduction
What we are... what we do

Goa, India; Lourdes Convent at Saligao

In the heart of Saligao, Bardez, Goa. Lourdes Convent High School is an institution run by the Franciscian Missionaries of Christ the King.

A grand structure, it stands to be one of the best convent schools in the area. The main aims of the school are; primarily, to firstly provide the pupils with training that will make them good future citizens by instilling into them values like honesty, discipline, integrity, leadership; and secondly, to provide them with the academic education.

The motto of the school being "All for God", the pupils are shown the significance of faith in God, and why all religions must intermingle and live as one. You will agree that these are lessons that our nation, today, really needs to learn.

The institution offers pre-primary, primary, middle school and secondary schooling. It owns a well equiped laboratory, and a library too. The school has a basketball ground, softball ground, badminton court and a beautiful garden.

The school has had a very good record. Besides academic studies, the students have excelled in other extra-curricular activities also. Each year, several competitions and contests, like elocution, debates, story- telling and reading are held to enhance the children's talents.

We have The House System, The Student Leadership Squad, A Science club and a Nature club. The Guiding movement has been flourishing in our school since 1965. With the introduction of boys in 1993, the scouts have been shining as well.

The school generally fairs very well in the S.S.C. examination every year.

Abu Dhabi-based alumni Zelma K. De Souza narrates her memories of school-life at Lourdes Convent from another decade. She writes: "I remember our school peon, whom I nearly failed to recognise on my last visit to the school. He is such a dedicated guy, can still picture him, giving out the registers and question papers from class to class with his quick walk. I remember the sound of the school bell, the skeleton in the school laboratory, flowers in the sister's garden, the chapel upstairs, the library books and the sand pit on the playground. It is all there in my mind and I think it surely is the same for many ex-students of LCHS."
