A Short Brief About Pamidi Education & Mission Work

Pamidi mission, SFS School, was started in the year 2005. In the beginning there was no school and house of our own in Pamidi, Fathers were shuttling up and down every day from Anantapur mission. In the year 2006 -2007 Fr. Bhaskar Jayaseelan bought 3 acres and 70 scents of land and began the construction and got the recognition of the school from the Govt. of AP up to 5th standard. Later Fr. Sunder Rao who took up as principal from 2009 -2010 made good effort to bring up the standard of the school and also recognition of the school was updated up to 10th class. Thereafter, Fr. Y. Bharath Reddy became the Principal and he was succeeded by Fr. Kishore Babu. There are 940 pupils, 32 teaching staff and 8 non teaching staff. At present there is neither catholic community nor their presence in Pamidi.
