Who we are - History
Bluebells School International, established in 1957, is a school with an international outlook which epitomizes Rabindranath Tagore's vision of humanity as one family. The tender yet sturdy flower unfolded its first petal at 129, Jorbagh, New Delhi with 5 students on roll. Watchfully nurtured by Mrs. Mari Guha, a Hungarian lady, the school soon established its premier status as an outstanding institution for early childhood education. Within a decade, another branch was established at Lajpat Nagar, New Delhi.
Mrs. G. Soni, the Founder Principal and now Director of Bluebells School International took over the reins when Mrs. Mari Guha moved to London to teach Child Development at theGoldmeiths College, University of London. In 1977, under he Mrs Soni’s tutelage the foundation stone of the main school was laid at the present premises in Kailash. The school is housed in a 3-acre campus. The 4-storey structure has separate wings for different sections and departments. Under Mrs Soni’s charismatic leadership, the institution acquired its full fledged Senior Secondary School status in 1978 and is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education.
The institution is scaling new heights under the dynamic leadership of Mrs. Suman Kumar, the school’s Principal. Mrs Kumar is well known for her deep interest in the latest Pedagogic methodology of Child Centric Education. She believes in the use of cybernetic technology to make teaching - learning a vibrant and creative process of discovery.
The school has a well-qualified faculty of 150 teachers who are constantly exposed to workshops, symposia and in service training to keep them abreast with the latest information. The philosophy of the school ‘One Planet the Earth, One Family - Mankind' reflects the school's ethos of international peace, goodwill and brotherhood of man. It believes in the value of global friendship with the underlying philosophy that children are the best ambassadors of harmony and peace. The school aims at holistic development with a firm commitment to “Every Child being a Winner” It strives for excellence in all avenues and exposes the students to the latest pedagogic and technological innovations. While the school emphasizes global thinking, it also believes in preserving our own culture and ideology. The traditional Indian values of humility, modesty, and reverence form the bedrock of all our interactions. The institute opens its windows wide to the culture of the world, as stressed by the father of the nation, Mr MK Gandhi, but our sterling values remain deeply rooted in Indian ethos and culture. The school strives to create a learning atmosphere “where mind is without fear and the head is held high”.
