About Presentation Convent School Srinagar
Situated on the banks of the river Jehlum, Presentation Convent Higher Sec. School was started in the year 1936 by a group of Presentation Sisters who arrived in Kashmir from Rawalpindi, Pakistan.
Congregation of Presentation Sisters is a worldwide network of Catholic Religious Organization founded by the valiant and saintly woman- Nano Nagle in 1775, in Ireland. Living up to the legacy left behind by this visionary, the Presentation Sisters respond with compassion to the needs of those made poor and challenge the unjust structures, which threaten the dignity of the human persons.
Today the Presentation Sisters and associates work in five continents across the globe and follow in the footsteps of Nano Nagle in promoting the rights and dignity of human persons. We are involved in a variety of ministries like education, holistic health, spirituality, faith formation, social work and pastoral work. Today Presentation presence can be felt not only in the cities but also in the remote villages of Jharkhand, Bihar, Haryana, Punjab and in the interior bushes of African Continent. We strive to keep the flame of Nano’s lantern burning bright by reaching out and touching the hearts of human persons, offering them support and a resolve to live with dignity and honour. We take up issues like human rights violations, exploitation of natural resources and gender discrimination.
Our N G O status in the U N enables us to use the means of advocacy and lobbying to represent these issues effectively.
