In the year 1974 on 15th January, the School took it’s birth in an outhouse in BJB Nagar, Bhubaneswar with only 4 (four) students. Two eminent personalities having a greater vision such as Late Radhamohan Mohanty, Retd. Bureaucrat and Sri Kshirod Kumar Nayak, eminent Advocate conceived the idea of establishing an English Medium School and this is how the School came into existence. To their good fortune, the mother like figure Late Mrs. O. Littilewood joined the School as it’s first Teacher-cum-Principal who nourished it on her lap. They were assisted by the BJB Nagar People’s Association, in carrying the mission forward. After being managed for couple of years in make shift arrangements, the School finally started functioning over the Plot No.M-1, BJB Nagar, Bhubaneswar. At this stage, The Lions Club, Bhubaneswar played an important role in the management of the School. There was no land, no building and no funds, and yet there was a strong and irresistible desire and determination to forge ahead. The School cannot forget the contribution of Lion N.R.C. Panikar in this regard. Money trickled down from the pockets of benevolent persons through personal donations and Lions Club, Bhubaneswar took active part in collecting donations and extended support in managing day-to-day affairs of the School. On being requested by the School it also succeeded in getting a piece of Land from Govt. of Odisha for establishing an English Medium School at Bhubaneswar. The selfless service of Lion N.R.C. Panikar, the then Secretary of the Club and Mr. Jagdish Budharaj, the then President of the Club in this regard has not been forgotten by the Management.
