Message from the Principal



Dear Students and Parents,                                                          Date: 25/05/2021

Greetings to you all, and a warm Welcome to the new Academic Session 2021-22!

First of all, I would like to thank the Almighty God for keeping us safe and sound in the last Academic Session that no life has been lost due to Covid-19 Pandemic. And I thank God for allowing us to continue the classes inspite of the many challenges that came on our way.

I on behalf of the teaching fraternity and the School Management would like to convey our heartfelt thanks to all the parents, students and home tutors for the support and cooperation given to keep the learning moving forward.

As we all know we are in the midst of Second Wave of the Pandemic where much precious lives have been lost, and we are warned to prepare for the Third Wave, which is going to affect mostly children. Ironically, the vaccines and medical fraternity could not guarantee our life. So, it is utmost important to take care of oneself to stay alive.

Keeping in mind our health and safety as the First Priority, I would also like to request students and parents to give due importance on the education side as well. The school and teachers are trying their best not to leave behind any students in their learning. For this, the parents’ continuous support is highly desirable, because there is no guarantee when this Covid-19 Pandemic will end.

Considering the safety and convenience of the students and parents the school strives to update its IT continuously. After launching of this new school website in 2020, we are adding up our service one after another. Now, we have facilities like - Online Class, Online Result, and Online/Offline Payment as the latest service. We look forward to the students and parents to catch up with the current technology in spite of its limitations and challenges.

Lastly, I request all students and parents to be aware of the latest Covid-19 development, stay healthy, keep and follow government SOP until the situation return to normalcy. We are upholding you all in our prayers, May God protect you and keep you safe. Amen!

With Love and regards,

Mr. T Goulienmang Gangte

Principal


History


Origin and Progress of Antioch School:

The humble journey of Antioch School started with a visionary seed sown by Rev. T. Kampu and Mrs. T. Hawiphal, the President and Principal of Asia Antioch Seminary, Guwahati. They had a calling to open a school here in Tripura among the Debbarma tribals. They were constantly in touch with Rev. LT Gangte to find a suitable site to start a school. Finally, I arrived in Tripura on the 4th December 2003 to begin the actual work. Upon my arrival at Abhicharan, MadhuChowdhury Para, West Tripura, I received a warm welcome from the villagers. I stayed at the rented house of Mrs. Mala Debbarma (Ama), for about five years then our family moved into the present campus.
At first, our school location was the abandoned Veterinary sub-center office near the Abhicharan market. After all the physical arrangements were completed the school was ready to enroll students. It was on the 5th of January 2004 that we opened school admission for the first time. A total of 45 students enrolled for classes KG-1 and KG-II in 2004 session. Classes began on the 27th of January 2004. While the classes were going on well under the mud-walled house, construction of the school building had also started at the present campus. The ground-breaking was done on 11th February 2004. Two years later the main building was grandly inaugurated on May 31, 2006, by ShriJitendraChoudhury, honourable Tribal Welfare Minister then and former Member of Parliament from Tripura.
Starting with 45 students, today after more than seventeen years we have a total of 417 students (2021) with 16 teaching staff and 7 non-teaching staff. The school has Classes from Nursery to Class VIII. The school is recognized by the government of Tripura, Education Department as secondary stage since 2012. The school follows CBSE pattern of Curriculum and Evaluation system. Lastly, the school has many prospects for development in all areas as an institution. We are looking forward to achieving our goal gradually.
