Welland Gouldmsith School, Patuli situated at Baishnabghata, Kolkata is the dream child of our beloved Dr. (Ms) G.R. Hart, the Director & CEO of WGS, Patuli. It is an Anglo-Indian, English Medium, Co-Educational School. The school is affiliated to ICSE & ISCE.
Established on 19th April 2004 with 350 students (approx.) from the Nursery to Class V, WGS, Patuli is a unique endeavour with only 12 teachers then on the ground floor and the basement of the then building. The concept of our mission lies in the school motto “Nisi Dominus Frustra” or “Unless the Lord in Vain”. We believe that life without the Lord is in Vain.
The pursuit of academic intelligence and development of diverse talents formed an integral aspect of the school. The school that started with the basement and the ground floor is now housed in the Five Storeyed building on a sprawling campus area of 1.399 acres (approx.) of land with about 1800 students from Nursery to Class Twelve under the care of about 60 dedicated teachers. Nestled in the serene ambience, the foundation stone was laid on 20th August 2002 by His Excellency Shri. Viren J. Shah, Hon’ble Governor of West Bengal and the ground was broken by Shri. Hashim Abdul Halim, Hon’ble Speaker of West Bengal Legislative Assembly, in the gracious presence of Dr. (Ms) G. R. Hart and other distinguished personalities.
