It all began long ago in a small way in the year 1964. Fr. Thomas Morris, SVD, an Irish Priest, who was working in a Parish in Sundergarh District, was entrusted with this new venture at Rourkela. While returning from his home visit in England, in 1963, Fr. Morris met an elderly British lady, Mrs. Ethel Brown by name, a war widow who was his co-traveller in the same ship. He took her under his charge and gave her accommodation at Rourkela. She consented to assist Fr. Morris with the running of this English Medium School.

The school began with a strength of about 50, and had Standards 4, 5 and 6 in a tin shed by the side of a small Chapel. These boys were from Carmel School, which was run by the Carmel Sisters in the next compound who wanted to carry on with the girls only.

Fr. Morris had to go personally in his motorcar to collect the students every morning. Every year a lower and a higher class were added and in no time the school had classes from Std. I to X. Armed with funds from the Society of the Divine Word and the building plan from Britain, the construction of the first school was started with full earnestness. Within a few years, the building took shape to accommodate students from Std. I to X. It had office rooms as well as lab facilities.

Fr. Morris had dedicated and loyal friends like Mrs. Brown, Fr. Wollcot, and Mrs. Florrie Alvaraz, to help him in the beginning and to make this school well known.
