Vision 2000+

The need for North Point to formulate a master plan, which would serve as a set of directive guidelines for physical intervention and expansion to address the school future needs, was a result of a strong consensus among the Jesuits, staff and alumni on the subject criticality. A number of meetings of the North Point School Alumni Association (NPSAA) exhaustively discussed the project numerous facets and compulsions. It was strong on the minds of everyone, North Point Vision 2000+ was the topic of the North Point Silver Medal English Essay competition and the subject of numerous brainstorming sessions among the school teaching and professional staff. What follows is what has been accomplished and what is still to be done in the future.

When the school celebrated its 100th year, or rather the centenary of its foundation, it was strongly felt that the school had to consolidate and expand. There was lots of maintenance to do and to add new facilities as the numbers were increasing. The school was growing. So a comprehensive plan was drawn up by Mr.Shashish Prasad (Alumnus).

It was in 2003 that Fr.Kinley Tshering took over as Principal of the school. The vision had been nurtured and planned by Fr.Van over the years. So the plans were executed with Fr.Van as Rector and Fr.Kinley as the Principal. Immediately, the Our Lady of North Point building was started in February 2003 and was completed in record time and commissioned in February 2005. Along with this main building, the Leo Forestell Primary building was also completed. It was started in 2002 and completed in 2003 October. Even as the OLNP was being constructed, the LD Pavilion was started in 2003 April and completed in July 2004. The need to harvest the water became acute as the number of students and buildings increased. Six massive tanks were commissioned and completed in 2006 with the capacity to store 8 lakh litres of water.

The OLNP now houses the kitchen and work shop on the ground floor. On the first floor is the dining hall which can seat 500 students at a time. The PD having their own dinning hall. The upper two floors are classrooms, twenty in number. Finally the attic which is an audio-visual centre with a capacity of 500 students. The Forestall Primary houses 9 sections of the primary classes, along with their own library, computer room, art and music room, staff room and toilets. The entire primary is now housed under one roof. The building is on the far east side, adjacent to OLNP.

Along with the new constructions, a lot of maintenance was done to the old building. The boarding section was completely renovated, doing away with the old toilets and refurnishing all the four divisions, including the infirmary.

Now, we are looking forward to the new Auditorium, which will have a capacity of 1500 seats. A housing colony for the teachers. A new PD and UD Pavilion. The drawing of new Auditorium is ready, and we hope to start it in October 2006. We would like to thank all who have contributed towards these endeavours, and we request all our well wishers to please support us with the rest of our dreams.
