History of the School

A plot of land at Bolsaldam, Jonglapara was donated by late Shri. Alberth Sangma, the Nokma of Resu Akhing. Rev. Fr. E.V. George, the then parish priest of Resubelpara Parish was instrumental for the said donation. It was his dream to establish a school at the Jonglapara for the youth of the area. He along with the Bishop of Tura invited the Franciscan Brothers to open a centre.

The Franciscan Brothers, under the dynamic leadership of Rev. Bro. Macarius opened the new centre at Jonglapara on 10-08-1983. The very next year they opened an English Medium School at Jonglapara called “Alverno Abri M.E. School”. Within a period of ten years, the newly opened school was upgraded to an M.E. School and obtained government recognition and recurring grant in-aid from the Education Department.

Unfortunately, the Franciscan Brothers had to abandon their venture due to shortage of personal in the congregation. After closing down the M.E. Section of the school officially, the Franciscan Brothers handed over their centre.

From April 1995, the management of the centre reverted to the Resubelpara Parish. The Parish Priest continued to look after the centre, with the L P School and the farm with the help of teachers and other helpers. It was on February 2002 that Rt. Rev. George Mamalassery, the Bishop of Tura, invited the Montfort  Brothers of St. Gabriel to Jonglapara.

Realising the acute need of opening a Secondary School in the area, it was resolved in the public meeting of the Local Leaders and General Public held on 14th May 2002 to open a new secondary school at Bolsaldam, Resu. The name of the school shall be “Montfort School”. The Public meeting held on 8th November 2003 specified the outlook to Montfort Secondary School a Co-education School catering to the educational needs of the surrounding villages.

Montfort Secondary school was granted opening permission with effect from 01.06.2006
