It was on March 13th 1991, that the dream of three visionaries was realised. Their far –sightedness and passion for education
culminated in the opening of St.Anthony’s School, located at Giddha Pahar, Kurseong, overlooking Rohini valley.
Initially, St.Anthony’s School had a modest student strength and a dedicated pioneering staff.
The hurdles of difficult beginnings,
which every institution has experienced, posed challenges which were taken up stoically. The seeds sown by the founding members
and pioneering teachers have gradually germinated and developed into the institution of today. Having opened with three classes,
the highest being class 5, the school in 2016 has sent up the first I.S.C. Batch.
The ethos and guiding light have always been visible in the day to day running of our school. The motto “Ora et Labora”
meaning “Pray and Work”, is the dynamo that drives St.Anthony’s School forward.
Children are admitted into class 3 and over the years are prepared for the I.C.S.E. /I.S.C. Examination. Not only academic performance
but more importantly, character formation and overall development to meet tomorrow’s demands are also inculcated.
The Ex-Anthonians who have achieved their aims testify to the above rationale of St.Anthony’s School.
From the onset physical development was given its due priority. This led to our school participating in AHLIS Events.
Daily house games are looked forward to by the students. The play-ground is where students enjoy themselves, happy memories are
created, friendships are forged and leadership qualities are fostered. Co-curricular activities ( like elocution, spell-bee,
P.P.T., debating ,quizzing, and art and craft) complement the curriculum, creating well balanced, skilled and confident citizens
St.Anthony’s School has been a member of AHLIS and has dutifully hosted events and participated in Inter-School meets,
chalked out by the Association of Heads of Listed ICSE Schools.
Like the Roman god of doors, the two-faced Janus, looking forward and backward, St.Anthony’s School is poised to take on the f
uture with the 25 year experience of imparting quality education. The school stands proud and with open arms welcomes students
from the hilly region and the neighbouring states. This fulfills the far-sighted vision of the founders. St.Anthony’s School
stands ready to take on the next stage of the journey, the next 25 years culminating in the Golden Jubilee.
In the words of America’s greatest poet, Robert Frost, St.Anthony’s School can declare:
“ ….I have promises to keep,
And miles to go…..”
