Shanthi Nagar is two Kilometers away from Hubli Town. Once a deserted, lonely place now it is a fast growing town. The Ursuline Franciscan Sisters ventured into this area in the year 1996 and concentrated on their social and medical apostolate. Many families started settling in the vicinity of St Michael’s as land cost was comparatively lower there than in Hubli town. The growing population, creating prospects of opening a new English Medium school, which again came as a request from the locals who preferred their kids to be educated in good surroundings, amidst good people. The Sisters welcomed the idea and sought permission from the Department of Education to open a pre-primary as well as primary school. On June 2, 2003 LKG, UKG and Class I commenced simultaneously with a total strength of 157 students.
The multi-purpose hall came to the rescue to accommodate the students of Pre Primary. In August as the new building was ready, the classes were shifted to the new building. Sr. Chrisia Laura Pinto, an enthusiastic, energetic and lively person, was appointed headmistress who won the hearts of the kids as well as their parents within a short time of taking up her responsibility. She was succeeded by Sr. Serena D’Souza an experienced Sister who after her superannuation volunteered to serve the nascent School which she did from 2004 to 2013.
As the hall was vacant after shifting the classrooms, a pre-nursery class was started there in 2005. The hall is utilized in the afternoon hours for activities related to social action. Sr. Madtha D’Souza was in charge of the class; she managed the class of 28 children with assistance from a lay teacher. Later Sr. Beatrice D’Silva along with a lay teacher and helper of the school started managing the class. In the year 2014 Sr. Lucella Coelho an experienced teacher took charge of the Angela Pre-Primary School. The school has now 228 students studying in this Angela Pre Primary School and 5 full time teachers and 2 non teaching staff are working for the all round development of the school. This Ursuline Franciscan venture marches on for the love of God.
