Origin & History

Shalini Convent School Welcomes You…

Servant of God Mother Eliswa (1831-1913)

Shalini Convent School, Raigarh is a Christian Unaided Minority institution managed by the Congregation of Teresian Carmelites (C.T.C.) of Lisieux Province, Jhansi. It belongs to Christian Religious Minority, India, governed by Article (30) of the Indian Constitution. The Congregation of Teresian Carmelites took its roots in the soil of Kerala in the year 1866, in its Foundress Mother Eliswa, a holy, dedicated and visionary woman. Mother Eliswa was someone who was deeply inspired by God, kept her faith alive always, adhered to a simple life and moved with compassion to work for the poor and powerless. She was one of the great visionaries of her time who responded to the pressing needs of the society in a very creative manner by establishing the first convent school, boarding house and orphanage for girls in the state. We draw our inspiration from Jesus Christ, who willed the total development of every person, as also from our Foundress, Mother Eliswa and our heavenly patroness St. Teresa of Avila.

While the paramount mission of our school is directed towards the total development of the person we too are primarily concerned with instilling right values in the character formation of those we educate and forming responsible citizens in the country who are ready to take their place in social, political and cultural life with selflessness and zeal.

Shalini Convent School, Raigarh has a spacious well planned building and playground. The school provides for a quality educational infrastructure for the overall growth and development of the students. As on date, the school imparts holistic education to nearly 1680 students in collaboration with its 85 teaching and non-teaching staff.

The school is recognized by the Directorate of Education, Chhattisgarh and is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education with affiliation No. 3330141.
