Kolkata: Taki House Boys School will introduce English as the medium of instruction on its second campus from nursery level from 2019 academic year. It will be the first state-run school in the Bengal where Madhyamik syllabus will be followed but the medium of instruction will be English.
Also, it becomes the state’s first government school to have a second campus. The Education department requested the headmaster of Taki Boys School Paresh Kumar Nanda to consider the proposal of taking over the school to set up its second campus as the number of students at Taki Boys has already exceeded 1,400.
The new campus was inaugurated on Friday at the erstwhile Madhya Kolikata Balika Vidyalay at 56 Mirzapur Steet. Primary school council chairman Kartick Chandra Manna, who was present on the occasion, said sincerity of the headmaster and teachers made the difference.
Once a new building is constructed at the old campus, it will increase the student capacity at the twin campuses to around 2,500-3,000 from 1,944 at present.
The school has already introduced English as the medium of instruction in classes XI and XII. The second campus has been renovated and a small playground has been made for the students.
Taki Boys School which recently completed its golden jubilee is in high demand. In 2015, it got the district’s best school award in academics, sports and co-curricular activities.
