About Us

“Education is what remains after one has forgotten
what one has learned in school.”

St Joseph's Convent Sen Sec School, Bathinda, was established in 1961 and is administered by the Bethany Educational Society, Mangalore, a Christian Religious Minority Institution. The Bethany Educational Society is registered under the Society's Registration Act XXI of 1890 No.17 of 1948-49. Its head office is at Bethany Convent, Mangalore. All the members of the Bethany Educational Society are Catholic nuns belonging to the Congregation of the Sisters of the Little Flower of Bethany. The society runs formal and non formal educational institutions all over the country.


Rt. Rev. Msgr. Raymond F.C. Mascarenhas, the Founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Little Flower of Bethany, under whose patronage this school was established was consumed by an indefatigable zeal for the Education of the Poor and marginalized specially the rural girls. He longed for the total emancipation of Indian women and was convinced that it could not be achieved without education. His spirit of service was supported by a strong scaffolding of prayer and faith in God. He was a man of vision, down to earth and compassionate. His penetrating vision enabled him to look far ahead, which directed his works to fulfill the future needs. His charisma can be summarized in one phrase “service born out of love”. The school is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi (Affiliation No.1630014)
