A Short Brief About Nizamabad Education Ministry
SFS School is an unaided recognized Institution, offering liberal education in English Medium. The school was started in 1973. Originally Nirmala Hrudaya Convent school, run by the Catechist Sisters of St. Anne, at Nizamabad, had a boy’s Section, but run by the Parish of Nizamabad. It was called Nirmala Hrudaya Boy’s Convent school. The then Parish Priest, acquired about 10acres of land at Janakampet, 10km away from Nizamabad and started the Boy’s section there.

In September 1972, Fr, Joseph Parappally was appointed as the Parish Priest at Nizamabad and In-charge of the School. In 1973 Fr. Abraham Mullenkuzhy became the Head Master. Due to some practical problems regarding the conveyance both for the students and teachers, in 1976 six acres of land was purchased at Subashnagar in Nizamabad town itself. Bro. Thomas Mallapuram started the construction of the school building and the residence for the community. The ground floor of the school building and residence were completed in 1979. The school was shifted to the new building at Subashnagar, Nizamabad, and was renamed as SFS Boys High School. In 1981, Fr. Joseph Thayil became the Principal and the Correspondent.
