Mount Hermon School–Darjeeling

Old walls are friendly walls friendly walls, farewell! Old walls hold memories that breathe a kindly spell. Breathe then your benison on me as I depart, I’ll keep your memory warm in my heart.

These are words from a song that any Hermonite (ex-student of Mount Hermon School) will be able to sing you. The grey stone walls of the school’s main building give the school it’s rustic yet sophisticated look. The school was founded in 1895 as The Queen’s Hill school, primarily a girl’s school, by Emma Knowles (a missionary woman from the US). Until about the 60’s the school was run by the American Methodist Church, but was run taken over by the Australian/New Zealand Baptist mission. Today it is run by the Methodist Church in India.

The school shifted to where it now stands somewhere in 1926. A sprawling the Kanchendzonga is the pride of the school. The school’s main building, a grey stoned one, in the shape of a U, houses everything from classrooms, dining hall and the administrative departments to even the girl’s dormitories. The boy’s hostels are a 10 minute walk from the main building, just next to the swimming pool. Boys in class 6 to 8 live in the Round building which is so named because of its shape. Mount Hermon has many residential teachers who are provided log cottages to live.

Situated in Darjeeling, Mount Hermon attracts a large number of students from the North-eastern states of the country, Bihar, West Bengal and even from Nepal, Bangladesh and Thailand. It’s not just the location that attracts the students, it’s also the school itself because like the school’s motto says – Non Scholae, Sed Vitae, Discimus – meaning not for school, but for life, we learn.
