Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kimmins High School is a girls' boarding school in Panchgani in the state of Maharashtra, India, founded in 1898. It was considered to be the "sister" school of Queen Mary School in Bombay because they both belonged to the same mission whose objective was to provide top class education to girls. Kimmins provided the "boarding school" capability for girls who could not attend Queen Mary's as day students. Miss Emilie Kimmins, who established Kimmins school in 1898, was a member of the Zenana Bible and Medical Missionary Fellowship. While she was working as Principal of Queen Mary School in Bombay, she became deeply concerned for the education of the European and Anglo-Indian children who needed to leave Bombay because of their health problems. Her answer was to offer these children a good education in the healthy climate of Panchgani. She remained at the school until 1921, and made such an outstanding contribution to the Hill Station and to the schools in Panchgani that she has been referred to as the "Queen of Panchgani." She not only laid the foundations of the buildings of her school but also of its educational and moral standards.show more
