It is located at Ballygunge, Kolkata. I travel to school by our school bus. There are fifty-five class rooms. There is a big playground too for us to play. Our playground is covered with grass. There are three beautiful gardens with flowers like roses, hibiscus, sunflower and seasonal blooms. Altogether there are sixty teachers who teach us all the subjects. The teachers teach us with great care and attention. Mr. Jason is the Principal of our school. Our classrooms are very airy and beautifully decorated. There are two thousand students in our school. We have a big library filled with many kinds of books. We are taught to obey and respect our teachers and elders. Weak students are given special classes by our teachers. Various activities and functions are held all the year round. The Annual Prize Day Ceremony is the best of all. I am very proud of my school. I love and respect my school. I love to go to school because then I can play with my friends.

A school is a place where people go to learn about topics like reading, writing and mathematics. In a school, one or more teachers help students to learn.
In many places around the world, all children have to go to school for a certain number of years. Learning may take place in the classroom, in outside environments or on visits to other places. Colleges and universities are places to learn for students over 17 or 18.Vocational schools teach skills people need for jobs.
Some people attend school longer than others. This is because some jobs require more training than others. For young children, one teacher is able to teach all subjects. Teachers for older students are often specialized and they only teach a few subjects. Common subjects taught include science, arts such as music, humanities, like geography and history, and languages.
Children with mental issues which are difficult to handle are not required to go to regular schools. These children are given other ways to get schooling. There also are special schools which teach things which regular schools do not.
Graduate schools are for students who have graduated from college.
Schools for boys and schools for girls[change | change source]
Education for all is quite modern. In England, for example, most people could not read or write, even in the 18th century. We know this because when they got married, those who could not write put an 'X' on the certificate, and someone else wrote their name. Mass education for reading and writing began in the 19th century.
Originally, in most countries, boys were taught differently and separately from girls. Some schools are for boys and some schools are for girls; they only accept boys, or girls, but not both. Long ago, most schools were run by religious denominations. That is because clerics were once almost the only people who were literate. Since there are only men in a monastery, this was often also true for the school, which only accepted boys. Going to a school also meant learning about religion. Some places still do not have schools for girls.
School as a place to learn for life[change | change source]
In many parts of the world, schools also help children learn things about life.
- In school, pupils develop their personality.
- Schools teach pupils about religion and ethics.
- Schools help people recognise socially accepted norms and behaviour.
Pedagogy is the science of teaching children. There are different approaches to teaching. Similarly, certain schools use different approaches. There is quite a lot of disagreement about what and how students should be taught. Many countries solve this by allowing different types of school, so parents and children have some choice.
