More than!half a century has elapsed since the seed was sown in the little town of Chittaranjan and it has grown tremendously from strength to strength and now stands as a mighty tree in the form of St. Joseph's Convent Higher Secondary School.The Railway(C.L.W)Administration approachedthe then Deanof Asansol,Rev.Fr Roeland SJ,with a request for a group of sisters to open a school at Chittaranjan.In response,His Grace Dr. Pereir,the ArchBishop of Calcutta,invited the sisters of St.joseph's of Chambery,Nagpur.Heeding the call,the two pioneers,Sister Michael and Celine ,arrived at Chittaranjan on a day of holi,the festival of colors.Thus ,13th March,1952 became ared letter day for Chittaranjan.On 17th March 1962,they set to work with 27 students and two Lady teachers laying the foundation to St. Josephs Convent High School.
All through the journey,the C.L.W administration saw that every need was met and every facility was provided within their limits.In 1998,tthey leased out a plot of land at Ashoke Avenue to accomodate the growing strength of students and the primary school building was completed in 2002.
"May Transformative Education for Fullness of Life" enkindle new vision,creative thinking and oriented education for the students
of St.Joseph's Convent Higher Secondary School Chittaranjan in the years to come.May God Bless You.
