The Immaculate Conception Church was established in 1804, after the return of Christians from Tippu Sultan's Captivity at Shrirangapattanam. To mark the centenary of the church in 1903, a Primary Kannada medium school was established and named as St Mary's Primary School. Thousands of children studied in this school and they are shining all over the world. Now this school has crossed 118 years. On the occasion of its centenary, to cater the needs of growing demand for Quality Education, the church management planned to open a model English Medium School. In order to provide good and qualitative education we have started with Pre-Nursery and Nursery School in 2011 and Primary was started in June 2012. The foundation stone to the new school building of St. Mary's Central School was blessed and laid by Most Rev. Dr. Aloysius Paul D' Souza, Bishop of Mangalore on 21 December 2011. The Parishioners of Kinnigoli, a strong finance committee & building committee whole heartedly supported the Founder V Rev Fr Alfred J Pinto for the cause. The 1st floor was inaugurated on 21-01-2014. Work proceeded at a faster pace.
