Our vision
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, socially conscious, patriotic 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 tradition
• 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

At the completion of this Education we expect a Holy Child girl/boy to be:
Spiritually oriented has faith in God
Intellectually alert has sound knowledge
Morally upright develops moral values
Emotionally balanced integrated personality
Sensitive to the needs of other has social awareness
Achievement oriented loves hard work
Patriotic has national spirit

He/She sees the best that is in him/ her associates and gives the best that is in him/ her following the school Motto “Always more and Always Better.” We seek the intelligent collaboration of the parents and active co-operation of the teachers for the attainment of these ideals and objectives.

To be an obedient student, respecting the rules of the school
To love and honour my parents and teachers
To uphold and foster the moral values taught to me,
To love and respect the poor and do everything in my power to alleviate their sufferings.
To take part in school activities,
To be simple as a child in my behavior
To respect as equals my classmates
To help everyone in times of need
To make correct use of my judgement
To foster in me spiritual values.

Will Avoid
Fighting by words and deeds
Using language not becoming of a student
Making fun of others’ intellectual and/or physical disabilities.

And So - To Be A Good Student
I will be spiritually oriented.
I shall make full use of my capabilities & intelligence
I shall be morally upright & uphold all moral values
I shall be generous, kind and gentle, loving and caring in my behaviour.

And Above All
Love my family, school and country and hold them at high esteem.

History of Holy Child School Kalna
The Society of the Sisters of Charity was founded in Italy in 1832, came to India in 1860 and since then the sisters are serving in many parts of the country in orphanages, hospitals, homes for the aged, schools, colleges and leper rehabilitation centres and other charitable institutions.

The pioneer missionaries of Sisters of Charity set their foot in a small sub- divisional town of Kalna, in the district of Burdwan, in the year 1966. As the need arose, an English medium school was opened on 11 January 1991 for the benefit of the local children. It continued to function as a primary school for nearly two decades. This institution is owned by the society, a body registered under the Society’s Registration Act XXI of 1860 having its provincial house in Kolkata. Following the footsteps of our foundress St. Bartolomea Capitanio, the sisters with their determination and hard work upgraded the school from primary to the secondary. With the blessings of the Almighty and support of the guardians the school applied for the NOC from the State Government to apply for affiliation of ICSE and received the provisional affiliation on 21 October 2013 and our first batch of 16 students appeared for the ICSE in the year 2016 and all of them was awarded pass certificates.

It is a minority institution established and administered by the society of 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 School day is celebrated on 08 September being the birthday of Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ.

The institute of the Sisters of Charity from the beginning has developed a profound consciousness that education of the youth is a vital component of the charism of its foundress St. Bartolomea Capitanio who held the youth very dear to her heart and committed herself whole heartedly to their personal growth and development so that they would become agents of change for a just society. The school caters to the education of all, irrespective of caste, creed, religion and language. The society of Sisters of Charity owns other schools affiliated under the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination New Delhi, namely Holy Child Jalpaiguri (WB), Holy Child Dumka (Jharkhand), and Holy Child Ghaziabad (UP).

Thus a journey which began on 11 January 1991 crossed many a hurdle and reached to the point where we stand. This journey was not smooth. But the determination and hard work of the Sisters of Charity helped the school to achieve whatever success it had. The success of a school depends on its students. Thus to develop the mental and moral values of the students the school took several steps to cultivate in them the love and appreciation for their culture and tradition and also to inculcate in them the sense of value and develop their intellectual, creative and aesthetic faculties.

Thus for the enhancement of the school, it takes care to develop a well balanced personality of the students for the good of the society and for the promotion of the better world where love, fellowship and service prevail.
