Currently, there are 86 students in the classes from the nursery to the 4th standard and 7 teachers. The bicentenary celebration, which was postponed due to the floods in Kerala, will be inaugurated by Mr. C. Raveendranath, the Education Minister of Kerala, on the 26th of November 2018. Most Rev. Thomas K. Oommen will lead the function. Mr. T. J. Mathew IAS (CMS Schools manager), Mrs. Jaya Kurian (Headmaster of CMS Mullackal School), and Rev. Alex P.
