There was no dearth of English medium schools in Motihari in 2008 but we felt there was lack of quality education and this was a long-felt need here. This urgency was placed before our superiors at Lucknow and they gave us a go-ahead signal. We started with 48 children in LKG, UKG and class I that year. I have been observing the gradual rise of the school and senior most students are in class IX now. We are in the process of getting affiliated with the ICSE Board, Delhi. The location of the school is ideal- neither in the heart of the town nor far removed from it – just on the outskirts and also within the sacred precincts of the Church of St. Francis of Assisi who is the pre-eminent patron of ecology. It is heartening to know that a website is being prepared on this temple of learning.
May the good work of building up children’s lives in this part of the country, which is also the ‘Karmabhumi’ of Mahatma Gandhi, be known for and wide through this portal.
