All About Sunday School .......

The Sunday School was initially run by a trio of Mrs. Annie Vergis, Mrs. Sini Anand and Suni Roy (James). The need to nurture the young kids in the way of the faith was strong and it led to a strong and again talented Sunday School, many of the kids moving on the be part of the excellent Youth wing. Subsequently the husband wife duo of Bejoy and Sheeja took over the running of the Sunday School after which Mrs.Anila Sankey was appointed as the first headmistress of the Sunday School in the year 2005. The grooming of the Children for the Carol Programme in the Kozhi Palli and participation in the United Theological College (UTC) Inter Church Competition was a regular and professional process. This was seen in the number of Prizes that our kids won in these Competitions over the years. The VBS Programme grew and developed over the years and now is on one of the biggest VBS programmes conducted in our part of the
city with Children from other denominations and faiths regularly attending the programme. Mrs. Sini Anand followed Mrs. Anila Sankey and Mrs. Pearl George as head and now Mrs. Mariamma Ittyerah is the Headmistress with Mr. Shinu Abraham, an active and able Secretary
