  • History & Memorable Moments

Our Lady of Good Counsel High School (located in Sion, Mumbai, India) is one of the oldest Catholic, coeducational schools in Mumbai. The school was founded as a primary school in 1939, and became a high school in 1958. Although run by the Archdiocese of Mumbai, a majority of students at the school have been non-Christians, chiefly Hindus. The school had a tradition of beginning each day with a spiritual value class, called Moral Science for non-Christians, and Religion for Christians. The school is a famous landmark in Sion, being located atop a hill, and shielded from the road by a massive black stone wall. Students have to climb fifty steps each day, in five flights of ten steps each, to reach the main square where the church is located, before moving on to the assembly hall. Half way up, on the side of the steps, is a white marble statue of the Virgin Mary, set inside a grotto, where you can light a candle. That statue in the cave still exists. [1]

Our Lady of Good Counsel High School's first headmaster was Mr.William Dias, whose younger brother, Father Sylvester Dias, served as Principal. The duo served the school for nearly three decades since its inception. The school built up a formidable reputation for having one of the best basketball teams in the country in its heyday. To strengthen character-building, and instil elementary emergency and first-aid education, the school encouraged students to participate in the boy-scout/girl-guide and Red Cross movements. The school also built up an Interact movement (under the Rotaract club) to spread social and community consciousness, besides holding regular sports and cultural classes that provided an outlet for the extra-curricular talents, including music and dance, of its students. The students of the school are divided into four major houses, Red, Blue, Green and Yellow. These houses serve as a source of a part time game for the students as there is a constant competition of scoring points for their respective houses among the students. [1]
