CHANGING FACE OF OLCOTT MEMORIAL SCHOOL

Status report for IAYP India Special Project.

After undergoing a thorough process and various inspections undertaken by State Education Board, one of IAYP India’ special project Olcott Memorial High School is now Olcott Memorial Higher Secondary School. 

Other than the wonderful academic achievement of the school, they have also been doing extremely well in sports activities. Recently, school’ junior rugby team won the state level tournament and are now vying for the inter-state tournament to be held in Kolkata. They are also doing incredibly well in other sports both for boys and girls, including kho-kho, kabaddi, hand ball and football, all with school training organized by teachers and alumni.

The school had also participated in ‘Paryavaran Mitra’ State Level Competition and was selected as one of the best schools (5th place in the state). Some of them also received individual awards, such as Student Award to Vijayalakshmi (1st place) and Guide Teachers award to Shyamala & Saraswathi (3rd place).


The school is also planning free computer education and English speaking classes for interested students, school’ alumni and local youths. We at IAYP India, wish the school all the best for their future endeavors.
