Campion International School Siliguri
Campion International School Siliguri - Creating Tomorrow's Leaders
Since its inception, Campion has been led by highly experienced minds in the field of education in regions like Nepal and the Darjeeling Hills to bring quality education to Siliguri. We have had the pleasure of educating minds from diverse cultural and regional backgrounds and bring them together as part of the Campion family. All our teachers, administrators, students, both old and new, and parents are a valuable part of this organization, who have kept faith in its efforts and have stood by us through all the challenges that we have faced in the last decade or so.
We value this diversity as it bridges the gap that is brought about by geographical boundaries, gives us the opportunity to learn from one another and emerge successful in all our efforts. It is with a great sense of achievement that we bring to light the fact that students from as many as five nationalities study at Campion presently, brought together by a pursuit of knowledge and an atmosphere of mutual love and compassion, echoing the words of Dr. Radhakrishnan: “Knowledge gives us power, love gives us the fullness."

In all the years of being part of reputed educational institutions and later on, choosing to work in the field of education, one thing has become clear to me- that education is a gradual process, it does not happen overnight, nor is it meant to. It is the awakening of the individual spirit, a nuanced understanding of the world and all its possibilities through a guided, cumulative process where each brick is laid down to create the foundation for a fulfilled life. Educators play an important role here, not just in communicating the lessons to the students but something like shaping and sculpting lumps or clay to create something beautiful and joyous. It is imperative that we as educators recognize our many responsibilities which are surely not limited to the classroom but extend way beyond that. The idea of what we want our Future generation to become should reflect in our own conduct, in various essential acts of kindness and compassion that each human being is capable of, qualities that make a great educator. A student should exude an insatiable hunger and willingness to learn and that too, they shall learn from us. In whatever experience I have managed to gain so far, I have seen that teaching and learning are not and can never be, mutually exclusive. Young minds often bring out the best in us, teachers and parents, and the moment we realize that we are equipped to shape young minds to spread their wings and reach out to the vast contours of this world of ours.
The Management and Faculty of Campion International School recognize this and pledge to live by these ideals. Looking at the future and its many possibilities, we promise to ourselves and to everyone associated with this school of ours that we will work together to create a vibrant and joyous atmosphere of learning where childhood potential shall bloom into lifelong talents and abilities, where difficulties become possibilities, associations become lasting relationships, challenge, became opportunities and teaching become learning. Within the guidelines of the curriculum and the discipline it instils in us, we shall find the opportunity to explore ourselves and the world, find ways to rely on our inner strengths and utilize our determinations to achieve all they are set out to.
I was and am still overwhelmed by the potential I see in every Campionite, where discipline is complemented by lasting friendships, and academics complimented by a zeal to develop oneself in all kinds of activities, be it sports, music, art, or even the skill of leadership, which our students have shown time and again.
I cannot help but smile when I look at our present potential and our ability to sculpt a wonderful future for us an institution and for all our Campionites. I hope and pray that we can achieve all that and more.
