St. Therese of Lisieux, also known Little Flower is the heavenly patroness of the school. She was a Carmelite nun born on 02-01-1873 at Lesbisonex (France) and flourished in holiness and charity in the Carmelite convent at Lisieux. She challenged the world inviting to live a life of simplicity in its maximum and thereby to attain holiness. She had a very short life span of 24 years. She inspires us to conquer the world with love and simplicity.
Little Flower English School is run by St. Thomas Province of the Little Flower Congregation (Little Flower Fathers). It had a humble beginning in the year 2007. “Be Little, Serve the Little” is the mission of the Little Flower Congregation. Our approach is the realization of this vision and mission through the proclamation of the kingdom values, empowerment of the marginalized and the disadvantaged section, priestly ministry, proclamation of the word of God and education ministry. The school, now, is a minority institution established primarily for the education of the local community.

Motto - “YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD”
Our school motto is “You are the light of the world”, which is imbibed from the Holy Bible ( Mathew 5:14). Children/ students are the light of the society. They come with a lot of potentialities that, like clay, need to be moulded, transformed and perfected to be beacons of hope and light in the world. In our context, our motto conveys that idea of refinement, polishing, completeness, perfection and encapsulates the meaning of moulding, transforming, cultivating and sanctifying. Thus, our motto and the emblem take a holistic and integral approach: developing the physical, psychological, intellectual and spiritual aspects of one’s personality. Through imparting knowledge, excellence, values, empowerment towards liberation and national integration, teachers exercise their ‘midwifery’ function of education (to lead out), bringing about a new birth by transforming the raw, natural, ordinary material into something polished, beautiful, cultured and perfect one.
