Ghugus-An abode of learning around the factories
On 8th June 1971 late Mr. CRM Ayyar, the then General Manager of ACC Cement factory approached our late bishop Januarius CMI and requested him to start an English Medium School in Cement Nagar for educating the children of the ACC employees. Bishop approached the sisters at Chandrapur and visited the land proposed for the school. After seeing the place and discussing the possibilities with the ACC Management, the Bishop gave us the green signal to go ahead with the project.
Sisters started their stay on 9th June 1972, the feast of Sacred Heart of Jesus in a building that belongs to the company. The school too started functioning immediately in an already existing building on 12th June 1972 with 24 children on the rolls. On 18th of June 1972 the school was formerly inaugurated. Today mount Carmel cement Nagar is a higher secondary school the presence of the sisters give boost and support to caholics of ghugus parish.
