All Girl’s School

Convent of Jesus and Mary , Dehradun , is where I have done my 8th , 9th and 10th standard from  “““““““““also its a all girl’s school !!!

CJM as we lovingly call it , is one of the oldest chains of catholic girl’s school in India , it even has a church right in front of it and prayers are sung to thank you God in the morning , afternoon and evening .


Πάτερ ἡμῶν ὁ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς·
ἁγιασθήτω τὸ ὄνομά σου·
ἐλθέτω ἡ βασιλεία σου·
γενηθήτω τὸ θέλημά σου,·
ὡς ἐν οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς·
τὸν ἄρτον ἡμῶν τὸν ἐπιούσιον δὸς ἡμῖν σήμερον·
καὶ ἄφες ἡμῖν τὰ ὀφειλήματα ἡμῶν,
ὡς καὶ ἡμεῖς ἀφήκαμεν τοῖς ὀφειλέταις ἡμῶν·
καὶ μὴ εἰσενέγκῃς ἡμᾶς εἰς πειρασμόν,
ἀλλὰ ῥῦσαι ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ τοῦ πονηροῦ.

just kidding , that was in Greek .. the English version of the same is , as follows ….

Lord’s prayer :

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespassers ,
as we forgive those who trespass against us .
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.


Founded in the year 1901, affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (ICSE), it is located in the idyllic surroundings of the picturesque Doon Valley. I feel proud to call it My Alma Mater .
