MR. CLAYTON FRANCIS
A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL
The opening of The Assembly of God Church School was scheduled for 2nd April 1984. The Opening was delayed due to the agitation of vested interests in the property which is almost 4 acres in area and is ideally situated at the entrance of the town, and which was handed over to The Assembly of God Church Mission by The Door of Hope Orphanage, which had closed. The turbulence caused by these vested interests was well weathered by the Administration, the very few employees, the parents who rendered strong support and the many well wishers, who craved for a good Christian, English medium co-educational school in Purulia.
Thus, out of the mire of agitation and property grabbing attempts, The Assembly of God Church School was born on 16th April, 1984. The Lord’s Presence with the Administration, the Staff and the students was so strong that day and remains so till today as the school goes from strength each year.
The first Headmistress was Mrs. Shikha Roychoudhury, the first employee was Mr. Menon Kujur peon, and the first student to be enrolled was Nilanjana Chatterjee in Lower Nursery, as per receipt No. I. dated 12.03.1984. In these three people the school had a teacher, a peon and a student. These indeed were small beginnings for the great institution it now is. The first Principal was Mr. Frank R. Freese under whose leadership the school received affiliation to the C.B.S.E and then upgradation to the +2/ Senior Secondary School.
Dr. Ronald Shaw, the then Administrator of The Assembly of ” God Church Schools was the guiding force behind the starting of the school in Purulia and with his able guidance, dynamic leadership and vast experience the school weathered the storm of agitation and soon got down to the noble cause of education.
Pastor Rev.(Dr.)D.Mark Buntain the Founder and his wife. (Dr.)Mrs. Huldah Buntain, now President of The Assemblies of God. ably supported the school both spiritually and financially and it is due to their dedication and love for God and people that the school in Purulia is today the best Christian English Medium School in the District. The School’s Motto “My Utmost for His Highest” signifies the determination to strive to achieve the highest and never to give up in pursuance of The Lor’s work and for His purpose for us
