St. Vincent De Paul (1581-1660) was the Sixteenth century French saint who pioneered the development of massive charitable organizations. He became the inspiring presence of his times which was marred by constant wars and discrimination against the poor. He promoted the Catholic essence of charity among all sections of people and organized charitable activities in the most efficient manner in order to reach the most neglected sections of the society. Thus, he awakened the conscience of humanity and left indelible marks of human values on history of the 17th century. It is he who, for the first time, encouraged women to actively participate in the process of social action. Pope John Paul II called him “a man of action and prayer; a man of persuasion and imagination; a man of leadership and humble service; a man of yesterday and today”. The De Paul institute derives its title and inspiration from St. Vincent de Paul, the patron saint of the Vincentian Congregation, a Christian religious community which manages the institute. Inspired by the example of St. Vincent de Paul, the members of the Congregation undertake various educational/charitable/spiritual activities for the upliftment of the society and especially that of the marginalized sections. Marymatha province of Vincentian Congregation is the parent organization of Vincentian Educational and Charitable Trust (VEACT) which manages De Paul English Medium Schools.
Our vision is to provide a happy, caring and inspiring environment which is condusive to actuate the full potentiality of the children in the school which in turns helps the students to achieve an integral development.
The long cherished desire of the people of Angamaly South for an English Medium school was realized when very Rev.George Kammattil inaugurated the L.K G section of the De Paul school on 7th June 1995 and std V of the U.P section on the 5th July 1995. The school owes its existence to the vision and tireless efforts of its pioneer Rev.Joseph Karumathy who was the first head master. The new school building was blessed and inaugurated by Very Re.Fr.George Kammattil in June 1997. U.P and H.S sections of the school got recognition from the government in the year 1995 and 2004 respectively. New K.G block is constructed in 2003. We could begin the higher secondary section in the year 2005. From the first batch onwards we could maintain the 100% result in SSLC examination.
