Carmel CMI Public School

St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara’s educational contribution laid a strong
foundation for a just society, which led to the conception of Carmel CMI Public School, Puliyanmala, in 2003. The Carmel CMI Public School, Puliyanmala, began its journey from st Antony Carmel house with an office in the year 2003. Carmel CMI Public School, started in 2003, later affiliated to the cbse, is managed by the Kottayam St. Josephs Province of the religious congregation
of the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate with the motto “life in the light of truth.”
The school is directly under the management of Carmel Vidyapeeth Educational and Charitable Trust, consisting of a team of educationalist.

The school is situated in a serene beautiful atmosphere, established by enthralling tea gardens and enchanting hilly sides, and tranquil surroundings.

The Congregation of the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate is the first
indigenous religious order of Catholic priests and brothers, founded in Kerala in 1831, by St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara and his associates. The congregation took up education as a service to the nation in general and to the Catholic community in particular from the time of its founding fathers.



St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara was born on 10 February 1805 at Kainakary, Kerala. At the age of five he began his studies in a village school,called kalari. When he was 13, he joined the seminary at Pallipuram for his priestly training. While he was in the seminary, his parents and his eldest brother died of an epidemic. On 29 November 1829, he became a priest. St. Chavara was instrumental in founding two Catholic Religious Congregations – one for men, Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI), and the other for women, Congregation of Mother of Carmel (CMC) for spiritual renewal and all-round development of the society. Starting seven ashrams and a convent in different parts of Kerala, Chavara initiated a spiritual movement among the people of Kerala. He established the first Catholic Sanskrit School, a major seminary and a printing and publishing house at Mannanam. He directed that every church should start a school attached to it and encouraged children of even poorer sections to attend the schools by supplying midday meal and dress for them. He founded a ‘Home of Charity’ to take care of the destitute, the beggars, the uncared, sick and the old. He also organized the first voluntary charitable association in Kerala for self-help among the needy. Even in the midst of such manifold activities, he found time to write several literary and spiritual books in prose as well as verse.

Principal’s message

Keep your face always towards the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you! – Walt Whitman

Happiness and growth are determined by a person’s cognitive processes. The previous year may have had its share of difficulties, but those who view difficulties as chances undoubtedly have a long way to go. We gain knowledge and improve our problem-solving skills with each passing year. We are aware that it is easier said than done, but the issue can be resolved by looking at the glass as half full rather than half empty. Our outlook on life will undoubtedly impact how successful we are.

I wish you all a very successful year ahead.

Fr. Burney Jose Mathew
