Mission Alive

Ministering in the Peripheries , Vidya Niketan, Peddabayalu

Vidya Niketan, Peddabayalu is situated in the agency area of Visakhapatnam district. The recipients of our mission are tribal students, mostly belonging to primitive tribal groups. The main purpose of starting a Claretian mission here was to cater to the various needs of this locality, with a special focus on the education of poor tribal children and evangelization. Vidya Niketan provides hostel facilities for these poor tribal boys. Thus helping the boys in their education, discipline and integral development of each student. We work in collaboration with the Sisters of St. Ann of Luzern; they have an English Medium School and hostel for the girls.

We follow a systematic time table and insist on the discipline and academic growth of the students. Besides the school curriculum we also impart value education and self-reliance through various activities and competitions. Over the year our efforts have paid off. In the last academic year our SSC students performed well in their exams. It was 100% Pass for the SSC students of our hostel. Three of them were not only toppers in St. Ann’s English Medium School, but also in Peddabayalu Mandalam, (Kartik - 9.7, Purna - 9.2, Rohit - 9.0). We are very proud of their hard work and excellent results. It has given further impetus to other hostel students to strive for academic excellence.            

The new academic year has already begun and students are back to the hostel after their summer holidays. The school reopened on 12 June, 2018. There are around 250 students in the hostel. We pray that Vidhya Niketan Hostel continue to be blessing for the tribal children of this area and a sign of witness to our Christian values.
