History of School

Whitehall School was established on the 10th of July 1992, in Haldwani, under the guardianship of Mr. J.S. Lal. It was observed that at Unchapul, Haldwani, where the school is situated there were no English Medium Schools to educated the local and rural population. Children from this area had to go a long distance of 10 to 12 kilometers to study therefore this concept was thought of. After speaking to the surrounding residents, this idea of starting a small school took shape. and was welcomed and supported by them. Thus in 1992 the first academic session of the school was established with an enrolment of 35 students from Nursery to Grade Two. Qualified teachers for these grades were hired and a society to run the school was formed. Since then the school has been upgraded every year and presently the classes are run up to Class XII in Aanpur Nawad,Lamachaur, Haldwani. The number of teaching staff and class 1 employees were hired, according to the increase in the strength of the students. By and by after the smooth running of the institution for a few years recognition from the Anglo Indian Board, Dehradun, Uttarakhand; was sought and attained. The school has been organised co-curricular activities by way of monthly activities for students like singing, elocution, debates, swimming, drawing competition, just a minute and many other similar competitions. Students from the school have been taking part in inter school debate, swimming, volley ball and quizzes etc. and winning certain competitions. Besides, every year there are annual cultural and sports shows, exhibitions, fetes etc. organised on large scale for parents and guests.

On the academic side, there are regular weekly tests throughout the year, along with two main examinations, at the culmination of the two term, in the year. The results of the school in all the grades are good. Regular hard work and attention to the weak students is given by way of extra classes and tutorials, everyday for 45 minutes in the morning before school starts and also on Saturdays after school, if required, for mathematics, without any cost other than the school fee.

The school tries to lend a helping hand to the unfortunate and the down-trodden of society, by donating clothes and money for any natural calamities faced by the country; like tsunami, earthquake and landslide victims in the past years. Besides this the school also gives charity to THE LITTLE FLOWER OLD PEOPLE'S HOME,KATHGODAM every month and also once in a year. Free scholarships to poor students and other concerns like annual donations to Ramlila and Dussehra shows for local residents are given. Thus the school enjoys a good reputation in town and the aim of the school authorities to produce conscientious and confident citizens is achieved.
