At a height of 1458 metres lies Kurseong, a small pictresque town which was ceded to the British empire by the Chogyal Monarch of Sikkim in 1835. Also known as the land of the White Orchid, this elegant flower grows in plenty around Kurseong and is a perfect backdrop for the town's serene and unassuming demeanor. Major and Mrs. T.B. Subba of Kurseong and Mr. and Mrs. J.B. Careeck of Sussex, England founded Himali Boarding School in 1978 in order to provide quality education to young children from Kindergarten to Grade III. They perceived an environment for personal development with regard to honing social interaction skills with other children from diverse backgrounds and enhancement of their own self confidence and self esteem. Gentle guidance that would help the children grow into becoming responsible and independent individuals were the primary principles that Himali Boarding School was founded on.
