Keeping this as our Aim , we have specially designed and structured the curriculum right from play group early years. Why St. Ninian’s • St. Ninian’s Mission School emphasizes the importance of Learning by Doing. We try to draw out and nurture their natural abilities , be it artistic, linguistic , creative or scientific. A holistic growth is emphasized with activities like Games , Physical Education, Music, Dance , Drama, Art & Craft , Gardening, Creative writing, Extempore and various in house programs throughout the year. • We strictly follow the student – Teacher ratio of 15:1, keep constant track of every child, and instill good values in the students . • We also emphasize a great deal on Safety and Security of every child. Teachers are always in touch with every parent , trying to do what is best for the child. A study based on the UNESCO report on the 4 pillars of knowledge comprises : • Learning To know • Learning To Do • Learning To Live • Learning to Be The 5 unique Pillars of Teaching and Learning at St. Ninian’s : 1. Academic Excellence , which includes : a) Generative Interdisciplinary curriculum , by itself is fascinating. Generative Curriculum is the understanding that students , community and teachers work together to create “ in the moment “ learning experiences . • Encouraging voice and choice in learning topics • Learning in a flexible manner , where content areas are interconnected throughout the day. • Generating an experience that empowers a learner to question, engage and build community based on class initiatives or individual student interest. • Growing learning pathways organically. b) Multi – Age Learning Community, the structure of which is built around connecting students from various grade levels spanning k-4. Multi- age learning provides opportunity for students to build respect for each others difference, develop their own identity , and creating environment which encourages empathy . This helps in recognizing learning as a process over time , everyone has strengths and weaknesses. It helps designing student goals around competencies , not grade levels . As students build their social- emotional skills and show that they are developing a growth mindset, they are coached in creating long –term goals, c) We at St. Ninian’s organize the habits of mind around persistence, managing impulsivity , thinking flexibly , listening with empathy and striving for accuracy. 2. Personal attention Teachers are not just there to teach them inside the classroom, but each teacher plays an important role in each child’s life , helping constantly to grow up happily and healthily, both in body and mind , instilling values and ethics and compassion in each child, that their parents would want to impart to them. 3. Holistic Development The World Health Organization (WHO) identifies the fundamental life skills as decision making and problem solving , creative thinking and critical thinking, communication and interpersonal skills , self – awareness and empathy and coping with emotions and stress. It is the education that shall engage all aspects of the learner, including mind , body and spirit . 4. Safe Campus St. Ninian’s provides a safe campus for all children, promoting protection of all students from violence , exposure to weapons and threats, theft , bullying and harassment , the sale or use of illegal substance on school ground , and other emergencies . We believe that school safety is linked to improved student and school outcomes . In particular emotional and physical safety in school are related to academic performance . 5.

Our History

History of the school . The church of Scotland Women’s (Zenana) Mission started an orphanage and Boarding school at 125 Bowbazar street in the year 1906, in a rented building . It was felt at the time that the Orphanage and Boarding school should be shifted from the present premises which was on a noisy and crowded thoroughfare , to the suburbs, where a large compound could be secured and the children could enjoy a greater measure of freedom and fresh air . It was also necessary that the site be from which those engaged in teaching in the school for Hindu Girls and with the Zenanas (women ) in the north end of Calcutta could carry on their work without undue inconvenience. After years of search, the present premises of 30 Barrackpore Trunk Road was acquired at a cost of Rs. 70,000/-, and the purchase was complete by the end of April 1909. Five weeks later the Mission entered into occupation , and the health of the girls has been excellent since they moved into their new quarters . In 1910, the new building was designed by Messrs. Makintosh Burn & Co, to serve as Christian Orphanage and Boarding School and was in the process of erection. On 16th January 1912 , Sir J. Molesworth Macpherson inaugurated the new building of Church of Scotland Women’s Mission and the building was dedicated in the name of St. Ninian’s . The school became high school and came under Govt. Grant – in – aid scheme in 1980. It is under WBBSE , Bengali medium school. At present the Bengali – medium school runs in the building made by Samagra Siksha Mission. In the year 2020, the Diocese of Calcutta decided to open a co – educational English medium section in the old Heritage building, keeping the aim to provide the children CBSE examination in class X and XII. The new English medium started with only 32 children in the kindergarten section , in on line mode as it was during the covid-19 pandemic lockdown. The Porch The Porch of the Heritage Building (which was built in the year 1910 – 1912) welcomes all those who come , and shelter their arrival and departure.On the front above , at centre is the St. Andrew’s Cross, which is the national Scottish cross , and on either side of it is Celtic cross. The Celtic cross represents the shape of cross used in the early days when Christianity first came to Scotland . Over the carriage entrance of the Porch there is a dove hovering with out stretched wings . The ‘Dove’ is the symbol of joy happiness, peace, affection and conservation. The ‘Dove’ over the Porch signifies that it is desired that within the school the spirit of love, joy and peace should reign , and that there may be here the pure and humble heart in which the Divine blessing may descend. Round about the dove there are the link of chains which shows the restrictions and restraints, the limitation of disciplines and trainings. The spirit of peace and blessing cannot only be manifest within the limits of the school , but just as the dove within the chain border and above it, so we pray that the divine blessing may reach out beyond these walls to all who come and go by this Porch. Then there on either side of the doorway are 3 Lotus buds standing out of the water . Lotus is symbolic of innoscence and beauty, and here we have 3 lotus buds in different stages of ripening signifying the little children of this school , all blowing buds growing up to become a beautiful flower.
To develop culturally responsive high school graduates who will thrive in an ever changing global community . The portrait of a high school graduate would consist of six learner profiles : • Independent Lifelong learner • Adaptable collaborator • Compassionate communicator • Responsible creator • Open minded critical thinker • Globally aware Community member
The vision at St. Ninian’s is to be the high school in Kolkata where we centre community at the heart of student success . We strive to prepare all students at every level and in every circumstance for ongoing success by championing equitable classroom instructions for each individual . So we customize student learning through an integrated thematic learning framework that fosters authentic collaboration , engagement and reflection.
