St.Paul’s English Medium High School- Ramagundam
St. Paul’s English Medium High School started with a great vision in 1990, our missionary management created an educational environment which inspired focused and committed effort, encouraged innovation and enterprise, and where “EXCELLENCE” was the watch word. “Real education fetches you more than a job. It teaches you to live. It cannot be measured in any tangible way.” Learning joyfully and meaningfully without burden, is an urgent need to save the present and future children from the distressing situation of the content oriented curriculum of a school, and move towards a student oriented curriculum. A skill is an ability to perform an appropriate behavior in an appropriate task/situation, consistently and with precision, as per one’s own developmental maturity. When a task is performed repeatedly, it turns into a habit. To turn this habit into a skill, a student requires time, perseverance and space, in addition to the physiological maturity. Hence, we are trying to supplement an appropriate environment, because we believe “A healthy Mind resides in a healthy Body”.
This school was established in the year 1990 under the aegis of Madras Medical Mission, a society constituted under the Madras Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church. The School is now governed by the following executives.
1. President / Manager : H. G. Dr. Abraham Mar Seraphim, Metropolitan
2. Director / Treasurer : Rev. Fr. Shijo .S
3. Hon. Correspondent : Mr. Alexander D Mathew
4. Executive Committee Members: Rev. Fr. Koshy Thomas, Mr. Mathew Varghese, Mr. T S G Varghese, Mr. Giji Thomas and Mr. Varghese John. The St. Paul’s High School, Ramagundam is currently functioning on the leased land of M/s. Singareni Collieries Company Ltd., Godavarikhani, Ramagundam.
The School had a strength of 490 students last academic year. Under the able and efficient leadership of Mrs. K. Vani, our acting H.M and Mrs. K. O. Aniamma, the academic cocoordinator, the school had tremendous changes in the field of discipline, awareness about the moral and ethical values, maintaining a healthy environment etc. Their hard work for the betterment of the school is praise worthy.

EXTRA CURRICULAR AND CO-CURRICULAR MATTERS
We are maintaining an atmosphere for our students to enrich their minds in the moral fields such as truthfulness, kindness, generosity, justice, love etc. These qualities were displayed while helping the blind Orchestra team at Vizag in A.P. with an amount of Rs. 54000/- (Rupees Fifty four thousand only) that was collected from our school. Also, when our 10 class student Kumari. Sahithi had undergone a kidney operation, we all, together with the management contributed Rs. 1,00,000/- (Rupees one lakh only) to the family of the student for her treatment. I express my hearty gratitude towards the parents, staff and our honourable executive members who extended their help for the same.

We are really grateful to our President, H. G. Dr. Abraham Mar Seraphim who is always concerned about the progress and growth of the school. The greatest advantage with Thirumeni is His Grace’s patience to hear any problems regarding the school and His timely advice to resolve the same. Thirumeni extends hand loans whenever we are in short of funds, with no further thoughts or questions. We cannot forget the support and help extended by Sri. Somavara Sathyanarayana Garu, honourable MLA of Ramagundam constituency, and his son Sri. Arun Kumar garu, whenever we faced certain difficult situations. We are also grateful to Rev. Fr. Koshy Thomas, Rev. Fr. Shijo S, Sri. A N Kuriakose, Mr. T S G Varghese and Mr. Mathew Varghese for their contribution towards the growth of St. Paul’s. Even though Koshy Achen was transferred to Bangalore, we wanted his presence in the committee as he is a senior priest and respect his guidance. Special mention must be made about Mr. Mathew Varghese’s help in arranging our accommodation during our visits to school. We are also grateful to Mr. Giji Thomas who is always a real and sincere supporter of St. Paul’s. We gracefully remember the support of Mr. A N Kuriakose who is one of the founding leaders of St. Paul’s. His presence in Ramagundam was a strength to our school and he has resigned from his service on account of his relocation. In his place, we welcome Mr. Varghese John, a retired GM of SBI. His knowledge in the Telugu language shall be an added advantage for the governing body. The services rendered by our committee members Mr. A N Kuriakose and Mr T S G Varghese to the school is a great relief to the management during the relocation of other members. Their proximity to this location is a great advantage for the school. They worked closely with the school and coordinated many activities. Our thanks are also due to the General Manager, Singareni Collieries company (SCCL) Ltd. and our bankers, State Bank of Hyderabad., the teaching and non-teaching staff of St. Paul’s, and the parents of our students, for their support during the year.
