A short history of St Paul’s School
St Paul’s School Rajibpur came into existence on 04 April 2010 in answer to the need felt of having an English medium school in Gangarampur town. The school had a modest beginning with classes KGI, KGII and class 1 with 114 students. The year 2010 being the year of St Paul, the priest curia of the Diocese of Raiganj proposed the present name of the school which was approved by the founder body president, His Lordship Rt Rev Alphonsus D’Souza sj, the consulters and the Diocesan secretary and treasurer.

Saul of Tarsus, known to Christians as St Paul, grows up in a strict and well-to-do Jewish family in the port of Tarsus, what is now southern Turkey. As part of Asia Minor, this is a Greek speaking town.

A Greek-speaking Jewish Roman Citizen is well equipped to have influence in the wide and stable Mediterranean world of this period. His father sends him to Jerusalem for higher studies to be trained in the famous rabbinical school headed by Gamaliel and became closely linked with religious authorities in the city and zealously helped to suppress the Jewish heresy which was being spread by the followers of the crucified Jesus. In the year 35 Paul appears as a self-righteous young Pharisee, almost fanatically anti-Christian. He watched with full approval the stoning of Stephen, a leading Christian, and then he sets off to the Syrian city of Damascus to seek out and arrest any Christians in the city. Paul’s entire life can be explained in terms of one experience ie his meeting with Jesus on the road to Damascus. In an instant, he saw that all the zeal of his dynamic personality was being wasted like the strength of a boxer swinging wildly. Perhaps he had never seen Jesus. But he had acquired a zealot’s hatred of all that Jesus stood for, as he began to harass the Church: “…. entering house after house and dragging out men and women, he handed them over for imprisonment.”

On the road to Damascus he sees a blinding light and hears a voice saying, ‘Saul, Saul why do you persecute me?’ The voice goes on to add: ‘I am Jesus.’

It was a turning point in Paul’s life and he was fully reconciled with Christ and instead of persecuting Christians of Damascus, he was baptized by the disciple Ananias and stayed with him and others for nearly three years and later on he returned to his home town in southern Turkey, preaching the Christian faith. Then onwards his only work was to present everyone perfect in Christ. For this I labour and Struggle, in accordance with the exercise of his power working within me (Col.2: 28b-29). ‘I no longer live but Christ Lives in me’ (Gal. 2: 20).

School Anthem
Chorus: O St Paul, teacher of nation
Look down with smile and love upon your children

Your heart was large enough for Christ
To welcome and embrace all nations
You are the model for us children
Pray for us today.

You are the messenger of peace and love
You lit the light of gospel truth
You are the shining star for Paulines
Pray for us today.

May your light shine over the world
Holy Apostle enlighten our school
Show us the way of truth and justice
Pray for us today.
