All Saints' Convent School
The Diocese of Bijnor and the Tehri Hydroelectric Project were started in the year 1972. The officers of the project requested Msgr. Gratian Mundadan to open an English Medium School at Tehri. They also promised the necessary infrastructure for the school.
Fr. Gerald Joseph Padinjarepeedika was given the responsibility to venture into this new mission at Tehri as he and Miss Rose Mary had already visited Tehri to enquire about the possibility of starting a school. Fr. John Chakkanatt CMI was entrusted with the work of getting the terms and conditions in black and white from the authorities.
Thus, the school named All Saints’ Convent School was opened at Chana Khet at the lower Tehri in 1977. The FCC Sisters of Thrissur Province also came on 06 September 1977 to help the mission. The first group of Sisters was: Srs. Felicitta, Treasa Jhansi, Lucitta Mary, Rose Paul, Ann Joseph, and Jolly Tom.
Later the school was shifted to the upper part of Tehri into new sheds constructed by the department. The school continued functioning at Old Tehri till 1995. As the work of the project was completed, a plot for the school was allotted at New Tehri on 24 November 1985.
