Something about our school….
Synod Higher Secondary School Shillong has completed fifty years of its service to the people of the state in particular and to the North Eastern Region as a whole and has celebrated its Golden Jubilee with great joy and thanksgiving. At the very first instance we give God the glory and thank Him for His manifold blessings, guidance and the wisdom that He has imparted on the authorities and teachers of the school throughout its 50 years journey.
The school was originally conceived as an English section of the KJP High school, a brain child of (L) T. Shullai, the then Headmistress, (L) K. Kharsati, the Asstt. Headmistress as well as the Managing Committee of the School. The school is indebted to these two great ladies for their hard work and support to see this vision realised.
It was on the 14th February, 1964, that our beloved founder, (L) Gwen. C. Evans and Kong Eileen Pariat welcomed 40 young boys and Girls who came trotting to the Montessori school (lovingly known as “Ka Skul Kong Bi”). God’s blessing of the school was felt right from day one. Whereas the Managing Committee had set a minimum target of 30 students for opening the School, forty toddlers trooped in on the first day and many more would have come but for the paucity of space. In assessing the first timers, it was found that there were at least three levels of understanding. It was therefore felt that another teacher was required and so, in walked (L) Lasubon Warbah, as the third teacher of the school.
In course of time, the school shifted to the science building of the KJP School and the idea of having a separate building was born. It was also the time to give a new name for the school.
