Origin and Progress of Antioch School:
The humble journey of Antioch School started with a visionary seed sown by Rev. T. Kampu and Mrs. T. Hawiphal, the President and Principal of Asia Antioch Seminary, Guwahati. They had a calling to open a school here in Tripura among the Debbarma tribals. They were constantly in touch with Rev. LT Gangte to find a suitable site to start a school. Finally, I arrived in Tripura on the 4th December 2003 to begin the actual work. Upon my arrival at Abhicharan, Madhu Chowdhury Para, West Tripura, I received a warm welcome from the villagers. I stayed at the rented house of Mrs. Mala Debbarma (Ama), for about five years then our family moved into the present campus.
At first, our school location was the abandoned Veterinary sub-center office near the Abhicharan market. After all the physical arrangements were completed the school was ready to enroll students. It was on the 5th of January 2004 that we opened school admission for the first time. A total of 45 students enrolled for classes KG-1 and KG-II in 2004 session. Classes began on the 27th of January 2004. While the classes were going on well under the mud-walled house, construction of the school building had also started at the present campus. The ground-breaking was done on 11th February 2004. Two years later the main building was grandly inaugurated on May 31, 2006, by Shri Jitendra Choudhury, honorable Tribal Welfare Minister then and present Member of Parliament from Tripura.
Starting with 45 students, today after more than twelve years we have a total of 330students with16 teaching staff and 8 non-teaching staff. The school has Classes from Nursery to Class VIII. The school is recognized by the government of Tripura, Education Department as secondary stage since 2012. The school follows CBSE pattern of Curriculum and Evaluation system known as Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CEE).
Lastly, the school has many prospects for development in all areas as an institution. We are looking forward to achieving our goal gradually.
