Education is the greatest treasure that humanity possesses, since it develops the human person. It was this vision of education that Anne Marie Javouhey, our Foundress gave us. For the past half century and more, Cluny Convent High School in Bangalore has been striving hard to make Anne Marie's vision a reality.
