Little Flower school Dibrugarh was opened in answer to the educational request of the people who desired an English Medium School for the education of girls. The two Sisters: Sr. Teresa Villa and Sr. Amelia Boiani arrived at the mission on August 9, 1952 and on the 18th of the same month, they began a kindergarten with fifteen children. The next day there were five more new admissions and the number continued to grow reaching 115 by the end of the year. The majority of the students who came to school were from the outskirts of the town and the surrounding tea garden areas. Distance, therefore, was a problem in getting the children to the school. The industriousness of the two pioneering Sisters found a solution to it through the acquisition of a second hand bus which made two trips to get the students from the distant areas. It can well be said that the school had a truly dynamic start with the Sisters who left no stone unturned in finding solutions to the inevitable obstacles of the beginnings.
The premises of the school were the two classrooms offered to them temporarily by the community of the Missionary Sisters of Mary Help of Christians (MSMHC). The number of students increased to such an extent that by the month of February 1953, i.e. less than a year, the rooms became too small to accommodate the inflated growth as can be noted in the chronicles
