From The Director and CEO's Desk

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Welland Gouldsmith Schools, Kolkata where we endeavour to mould you into the BEST version of YOU. Here, in our institutions, we nurture intelligence and potential, in order to enable each student find the gateway to their own successful life. The attitude that sets the WGS apart is our belief that true intelligence is the combination of natural ability and a hardworking attitude.

Like the founders of our schools- the Rev. Welland and Rev. Gouldsmith, we never forget the Christian principles on which we were founded and built. Our faculty offer and impart quality education, built upon a foundation of honesty, hard work and our culture, which champions resilience. Ours is an Anglo Indian school, where we provide a holistic education, through the medium of English and nurture the members of not only our community but all communities that make up this great nation of ours so that our children learn to respect each other and to live in peace and harmony despite their differences.

We want our students, who are "our jewels, bright and rare", to be confident, determined, hardworking, enjoying the freedom to experiment, to strive for personal bests, to embrace leadership opportunities, learn to overcome obstacles, pray, laugh and grow and do all this with a sense of humility. The reward of all our labours is that each young man or woman who leaves the portals of our schools should be good and tolerant human beings who go out into the world confident in who they are, and as ambitious and assertive as they are academically-gifted.

A sound education is based on a strong partnership between the school and the home and we welcome open and positive communication with our parents. On a personal note it is a matter of great joy and pride for me that in this, my 36th year as Principal of our B.B. Ganguly branch and in the 10th year after the founding of our Patuli branch, that, moving forward we are today, continuing to break new ground, as we launch our Welland Gouldsmith website. I thank all those whose hard work and efforts have helped make yet another dream of mine a reality.

Of course this website cannot take the place of discovering firsthand what makes the Welland Gouldsmith Schools so special so we invite you to join us and find out for yourselves the uniqueness that best suits the needs and interests of your children, offering an abundance of opportunities to enable you to make an investment in their future so they can become the very best individuals they can be.

I conclude with our School motto "NISI DOMINUS FRUSTRA " from Psalm 127: Vs. 1. We thank God that He has blessed our schools and we believe that He will continue to do so, thus ensuring that our labours are not in vain.

With warm regards,
Dr. (Ms.) Gillian Rosemary Hart.
Director of Edn. & CEO.
