Truly speaking to talk about my school is like talking about my own child. I feel that, as if I have given birth and nurtured it like my other children. In my early youth, while working as a teacher in a school, I realized many shortcomings that existed in the existed education system. I began to dream of having a school of my own. When girls of my age aspired for a secured and settled life, I took up a big challenge of starting a school of my own at a time when I had neither enough means nor manpower. The assets that I had were my courage, self confidence and whole hearted support of my parents Late Sri. Satpal Sethi and Late Smt. Bimla Sethi. My chief aim was to provide quality education at a very affordable rate to students from all categories irrespective of their social and economic background.
Finally my dream came true as in 1991, my school North Point Senior Secondary Boarding School under North Point Education Trust was established at Gorakshabasi Mandir Complex, Arjunpur. Subsequently, North Point Senior Secondary Boarding School, Rajarhat Branch was established on 42 bighas of land amidst beautiful landscape of Rajarhat in the year 2004. Arjunpur Branch is Day scholar whereas Rajarhat Branch is a Day – Boarding School having all the amenities that a modern boarding school should have. In the boarding school, a loving and caring environment is provided to make the boarders feel a home away from home.
In this long journey while fulfilling my dreams, I had to work alone facing stiff challenges and hurdles. Fortunately, I got support and co-operation of my dynamic Staff members, Students, Guardians and my family members. I always believed in a curriculum that would ensure all aspects of a child’s development – emotional, intellectual, moral, physical and social. This activity - oriented teaching approach should be imparted to the students in a spacious, open atmosphere quite close to the nature.
At the end, I would like to say in the words of the Poet Robert Frost ".....and miles to go before I sleep." I always have the interest of the child in mind as my biggest priority and I would keep on pursuing my dreams towards the realization of my goals to make this world a beautiful place for the children. My greatest reward and satisfaction is when I see my beloved students grown up to be successful and responsible citizens and prepared to make right choices in life.
