BAGNAN HIGH SCHOOL is one of the oldest and renowned Schools in the district of Howrah. It was established on 3 May in the year 1854 by the Zaminder of the village of Chandrapur. Then it was shifted to Khadinan Shibtala. Afterwards, the School was shifted to Bagnan Rathtala. Finally it was shifted to its present place i.e. near Bagnan Registry Office most-probably in the year 1935. At present the roll strength of the school is more than 33110 and 58 Permanent Teachers, I Librarian and 5 Para Teachers are engaged to teach the Students with love and care. There are 2 Clerks. 2 Class IV Staff and I Lab Attendant to help and assist all. B posts of different subjects are still vacant. There are 5 buildings in our School and the oldest one (Main Building or Arts Building) is almost ín a dilapidated condition and the renovation of this building is urgently needed. The condition of the Commerce Building and the roof of the Ground Floor of the Science Building are also deplorable.
I joined as the Headmaster of this renowned and glorious School on 8th August. 2014. The roil strength and the number of the teaching and non-teaching staff surprised me then. My motto is to run the School following the rules and regulations of West Bengal Board of Secondary Education and West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education and in this regard help and co-operation of my colleagues and the guardians is vary essential. 'Our School is our second Home'- this should be our slogan. Students should maintain discipline and punctuality and moral values should be inculcated in them. There is scarcity of Classroom and Teachers. We are trying to make the Science Laboratory well-equipped and modernized and there is no lab for Geography. Library is also needed to be well equipped, well-furnished and modernized. Our Computer Lab is indeed well equipped, well-furnished and modernized. But the playground of our School needs immediate repair.
I am optimistic and hopeful that with the help, assistance and co-operation of all of my colleagues, members of the Managing Committee, guardians, present and ax-students and well-wishers, BAGNAN HIGH SCHOOL will be regarded as one of the best schools in all respects not only in the district of Howrah but also in the state.
