It is now 50 years that Regina Mundi has been departing knowledge and has become an iconic institution not only for the people of Vasco but also to the entire Goa.
A 40,000 sq metre plot of comunidade property atop Chicalim hill once commanded views of the Zuari River to the north, the Harbour to the west and the Arabian Sea to the south.
The plot was composed of laterite rock and was totally infertile. The land was offered to the Presentation Sisters in 1957 if they would build a school on it. Truth be told, it was a most unsuitable place for a school as it was 5 kms from Vasco, had no motorable road and was without electricity and water.
