Arul Malar Matric. Hr. Sec. School – Madurai



“LOVE AND SACRIFICE” Our school was begun with this motto on 1974, and named as Arul Malar School under the patronage of st….. . Because this saint in known for the simplicity of loving and serving the least in the community. similarly we would like to serve the simple people in the society. The simple beginning was later raised to a level of matriculation school in 1987. the performance and the quality of our hard work raised the to a higher level of education in 1990 and the school was upgraded to a higher secondary. basically the school was begun and run by the congregation of FRANCISICAN SISTERS of the IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY. the congregation was founded by foreign missionary Rev. FR. LOUIS SAVENIEN DUPUIS. MEP, whose vision of importing knowledge came true through this and various other educational institutions. the congregation headquarters is located in Pondicherry.

Our founder Rev. FR. LOUIS SAVENIEN DUPUIS. MEP, was a great missionary also he was a visionary who had lots of vision, especially in the field of education. He, himself as a first men carried it on his shoulders and later handed this great task to the sisters who are faithfully caring it out till today. he was not only worried about the intellect but also spiritual, moral, physical (health), cultural and other fields as well. in way he wanted the growth of whole being and not human being in parts. specially in imparting the values and dignity of human persons. therefore today we the sisters have taken up the work and trying our best in our educational institutions also through other services. during his time he was an ambassador of peace and wished to sow the values of love, justice and brotherhood. today our congregation is working in a deeper way to promote and to challenge the world through our educational institutions.

Finally His vision of mission was to expel the darkness of ignorance from the society with the light of education. His dream is alive and active everyday by our way of life. the congregation has established many schools, colleges and dispensaries to uplift the poor & needy. among those institution our school becomes a mile stone and corner stone in many of our students life.
