Rajagiri at a glance - Milestones

The school grew in size and stature with the passage of time. Young Rajagiri was fondly looked after by Rev.Fr.Gregory Karotemprel,CMI (presently the Bishop of Diocese of   Rajkot) and Rev. Fr.   Aaron Vithayathil CMI,who are rightly called  the pioneers of the school. The late Mr.Joseph V.Manjooran being the retired headmaster of St.Alberts School brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the school during its inception while he served as headmaster (1964-1976). The administrative function was carried out by the pioneer fathers. I used the school library to write my nursing paper and make sure all the information I included was correct.

Over the years the following helmsmen have been rendering fruitful and steadfast service as heads of the institutions with the able help of faculty members.
