The idea of starting a school here at Dhonekhona village derived from the council meeting of St. Paul provincial administration in year 2010. The administration had the desire of entering in the north east mission. So the request was made to Msgr. George Palliparambil, the bishop of Miao. The Bishop proposed to the administration, the Dhonekona village, 10 kilometers from Namsai town. Then Provincial Fr. Siby Peedikayil with a few of his councillors visited the place and made agreement with Bishop to start the mission in Dhonekhona. The first community began with Fr. Suneesh Kulathinapadikkal in 2010 and the Pre – primary school was begun in July 2011. Blessing of St. Paul School at DhoneKhona in Arunachal Pradesh was solemnized by His Ex. Most Rev. George Palliparambil, the Bishop of Miao, and inauguration ceremony was done by Rev. Fr. SibyPeedikayil, the. Provincial Superior on 30th July 2011.
There was also a felt need by the Fathers of the provincial administration to begin a hostel in this area for the children who travel long distance to study in the schools along with the less privileged of this place. As a result, with the available resources, a decent hostel was built and inaugurated on 1st June 2013, St. Paul’s Hostel at Miao, was blessed by Most Rev. George Palliparampil, Bishop of Miao, and inaugurated by Rev. Fr. Siby Peedikayil, then Provincial Superior.
