Shishya School was the first English medium school, in Selaqui, founded in 1986. It had humble beginnings with only Nursery and KG class. The building, which is the present pre-school, was a two bed-room house, renovated many times as the school grew… adding small rooms like pockets here and there wherever space was found. When Frieda and Ken McRae founded the school, they admitted their own children who were told that “mom” is now “ma’am” at school. However, the whole class referred to the teacher as “mom.” That was Shishya’s genesis, a true family beginning. “Family” is God’s creation and from the beginning, “family” and “community” have been the school’s priority and vision; to teach and model love as Christ taught: “love your neighbour as yourself.” Ever since, Shishya has remained one of the most reputed co-educational day-schools with a strength of about 800 students.
The school is affiliated to CISCE, New Delhi and follows ICSE syllabus till class 10th & ISC syllabus for classes 11th & 12th. Thus, the staff are well trained to face the challenges of competitive learning necessary for students to undertake.
Shishya Public School is committed to imparting quality education to students from any kind of background and all classes. Serving needy students is a responsibility which is taken seriously.
Learning is prioritised as an enjoyable experience. “Pressurising” students is not acceptable; the school aims not to give students more than is manageable. The school’s aim is to see each student putting in all his/her effort, putting in all their effort. From its inception, Shishya Public School is dedicated to shaping individual, unique young minds and strives to work alongside our local community.
As we watch our children our hearts go out to them; they face a challenging future in a fast-changing world. We train them to search their hearts and minds to make right choices for their future decisions. We do our best by making a safe, creative and beautiful learning environment for them. We aim to see them achieve and live quality lives with love.
