For more than a decade Vimala Public School Kuttampuzha, enlighten several ignited minds in and around Kuttampuzha Panchayath, with her refined bestowing of English education. By the grace of the omniscient God Almighty and through the intersession of the Immaculate Heart of Mother Mary after whom this school is named as Vimala Public School, the radiance of Wisdom and Knowledge continue to prevail in Kuttampuzha which is a typical part of our ‘‘Gods Own Country”with lush vegetation, rivers, hills and innocent inhabitants.
As Kuttampuzha is a paradise for the immigrants from different parts of Kerala, the people here were very much desirous of imparting quality education to their posterity. Because of many obstacles and hardships like poor transportation system and lack of bridge across the Periyar, for many years their dream could be realized only by few fortunate students. Irrespective of religious differences and beliefs most of the people in this locality showed great trust and faith towards Catholic Priests and religious devotees who always considered and respected back these people and shouldered the responsibility of improving their lifestyle. As a result, Rev. Fr. Joseph Vattakuzhi, then Parish Priest of St. Mary’s Catholic Church Kuttampuzha proposed the idea of establishing a convent and adjacent English medium School, here, to his Excellency Mar. George Punnakottil, then Bishop of Kothamangalam. After several consultations and discussions this mission was entrusted to the Congragation of Mother of Carmel indigenously founded by St.Kuriacose Elias Chavara. This with ardent charisma and enthusiasm, the authorities and superiors benevolently took up the hardships and envisaged the plan to embark an educational revolution in this locality with the establishment of a Convent here.
On 10th October 2004, Rev. Fr. Joseph Vattakuzhi laid down the foundation stone of our new convent.On 6th June 2005 we started a nursery class with 81 students on the roll. Mother Provincial Rev. Sr. Benno CMC, Rev. Sr. Devotia CMC, along with many others gave timely directions and encouragements.
At this juncture we fondly remember the service of first Principal Rev. Sr. Jossy CMC , then Local Manager Rev. Sr. Mettilda and Mother Provincial Rev. Sr. Benno CMC.
Sr. Rose Mathew, and Mrs. Sheela Eldhose were the first teachers. Rev. Sr. Tresa Mary CMC took charge as the Principal in 2005. She was succeeded by Rev. Sr. Merrina CMC and later Rev. Sr. Glory CMC. At present Rev. Sr. Liseena CMC is the Principal of the School and Rev. Sr. Mary Paul is the Principal of our Kinder Garten
