Today marks a historic moment for St. Paul’s School, as we celebrate 200 years of our existence. From our humble beginnings at 11 Park Street in Kolkata to our current location in Jalapahar, Darjeeling, we have come a long way. The event was an astounding success, highlighted by the inauguration of our beautifully renovated Chapel, which serves as the heartbeat of our school, by the esteemed Rt Rev. Bishop Dr P. Canning, the Chairman of the Board of Governors.
The Chapel service was a wonderful tribute to our rich history and tradition. It was heartening to witness the strong emotional bond that the Chapel shares with our community.
Moreover, the redesigned Cotton Hall and classrooms were inaugurated, offering state-of-the-art facilities that will undoubtedly benefit all Paulites. We are excited to see how these facilities will elevate the academic experience of our students.
The Prep Hall served as a platform to felicitate former faculties who have been the pillars of our school for many years, and have passed the baton to the present faculties. We are grateful for their immense contribution to our school’s growth and development. We would also like to thank the former masters for gracing the event.
The choir and masters provided a mesmerizing performance of soulful music, captivating the entire audience. We extend our appreciation to them for their high-quality singing, which added to the grandeur of the occasion.
We were privileged to have faculty members from IIT Kharagpur share their vision with St. Paul’s School regarding the Indian’s first and only IIT Kharagpur mentored next-generation Do-it-yourself Lab featuring AI tools. It is a momentous occasion for us to collaborate with IIT Kharagpur and we eagerly await the opportunities that this partnership will bring.
We express our utmost gratitude to Dr. Subir Choudhury, Director of Educare and Secretary to the Board of Governors, for his visionary approach towards St. Paul’s School. His forward-thinking has laid a solid foundation for the school’s growth and development, which is soon to be realized. The collaboration with Educare has opened up new avenues for our institution, propelling it towards higher levels of educational excellence.
We are truly privileged to have such an esteemed association with Educare, which brings with it a wealth of knowledge, experience, and expertise. With their guidance and support, we are confident that our school will continue to achieve new heights of success in the field of education.
We are grateful to see our old Paulites grace the occasion. They have always supported the school through thick and thin.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the organizing team for their tireless efforts in making this event a grand success. It is through their hard work and dedication that we were able to commemorate this important milestone in our school’s history.
Once again, we express our deepest appreciation to everyone who contributed to the success of this event. It is a testament to the strength and spirit of our St. Paul’s School community, and we look forward to many more years of excellence and achievement.
