In the light of the Gospel and the charism of St. Bartolomea, we commit ourselves to Education for Transformation by forming individuals to be spiritually oriented, intellectually alert, morally upright, emotionally balanced, patriotic, socially conscious and be agents of change for a just society. Provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment to discover the treasure within:

• To make the students aware of their dignity as children of God
• To develop their intellectual, creative and aesthetic faculties
• To cultivate in them love and appreciation for their culture and traditions
• To train them to make correct use of their judgment, will and affectivity
• To inculcate sense of values
• To prepare them for an honest living
• To develop a well balanced personality for the good of the society

Holy Child School, Jalpaiguri was established in February 1973 by the Sisters of Charity, a catholic congregation originally formed in Italy by St. Bartolomea Capitanio and St. Vincenza Gerosa. It is a Girls’ School where the boys are accommodated according to the need and decision of the Governing body. At the time of its establishment, the city was in dire need of quality English education. The school has lived up to the expectations of all strata of Jalpaiguri citizens.

Holy Child Convent’ Jalpaiguri was opened in 1973 by the Society of the Sisters of Charity of Saints Bartolomea Capitanio and Vincenza Gerosa also known as Sisters of ‘Maria Bambina’ (Holy Child Mary). Hence the Institution bears this name.

The Sisters of Charity came from Italy to India in 1860 and since then they are working in many parts of the country, in Orphanages, Hospitals, Homes for the Aged, Schools, Colleges and other charitable institutions. The institutions are owned by the Society, a body registered under the Societies Registration Act, 1860.

The special meaning attached to this Institution Holy Child is that it is especially dedicated to the Holy Infant Mary, the Virgin Mother of Jesus Christ. Hence the school day falls on 8 September that is the Birthday of the Holy Child Mary.
