Welcome to St. Josephs Schools, Hunsur
Hunsur is located 45 kilometers west of Mysore City on the Mysore –Madikeri – Mangalore Highway. Its main claim to fame was that the former Chief Minister of Karnataka State Sri D. Devaraj Urs hailed from this constituency of Karnataka Legislative Assembly. St Joseph’s Convent institutions are located in the heart of Hunsur town, just near to the old KSRTC bus stand. Fr K.A. Mathew, parish priest of Hunsur at that time invited the Ursuline Sisters to Hunsur and Mother Genevieve, a daring person by nature and missionary minded, ventured into the Diocese of Mysore by opening a convent in the year 1956. Incidentally this was the first institution of the Congregation outside the Diocese of Mangalore, and was to become the gateway for the Ursulines’ entry into many a remote villages of Mysore District.
