eminaries. Guardian Angel High school at Sanvordem, Monte de Gurim, st
Anthony`s Duler, Mapusa and St Paul`s Belgaum are some of the English
Medium schools patronised by the Villagers.
At Chinchinim, the only English Medium paid school was Don Boscos High
school, as it was later rechristened and founded by Prof C.A Gomes, where
many completed their matriculation Fr Floriano Gomes, started his private
school in Portuguese at his residence. The Govt Primary school taught up to
Permeiro and Secundo Grau in Portuguese language( equivalent to Std V to
day). Prof. Sebastiao Furtado , Alleamvado,taught at Dramapur, He had a
boarding at Alleamvado , and marched students early in the morning and
brought them back in the evening from the Govt primary School . Prof.
Octaviano DCosta, had his boarding at Bamado, then at Sucaldem. Prof,
Arsenio De Mello had boarding at II Palvem, which was popular for its
strict discipline, Then Prof, Nazarino Rodrigues started a boarding at
Dandeavado and Prof. Leboiano Mendes too had a boarding at Dandeavado,
These early educators where very much in demand and filled the void by
tutoring , preparing the students of common people at their boarding
schools The parents then were not literate to teach their wards in
Portuguese Language. These tutors sent them to regular Govt primary school
at Chinchiniml in the Morning and then coached them at the boarding
premises. Sometimes they also prepared private students and sent them for
the examination only at the Govt schools
The Chinchinim and surrounding villages, who had their education here
through these boarding schools fondly remember Fr Floriano Gomes, Prof.
Sebastiao Furtado,Prof Octaviano DCosta, Prof. Nazarino Rodrigues, Prof
Leboiano Mendes and Prof. C. A. Gomes. We pay our tribute to the memory of
these early pioneers and flag bearers of Education in the Village of
Chinchinim and recount their in valuable contribution. May their souls rest
in peace
Nelson Lopes Chinchinim
