Welcome to our website...

Dear Students, Teachers, Parents and Friends,

Welcome to  Our Lady Queen of the Missions School, Salt Lake. I am pleased that you have taken the time to visit the Our Lady Queen of the Missions School, Salt Lake website.  I hope that you find our website to be user-friendly, and after your visit, you will have a good idea of all we have to offer. Let me tell you about us, about what we do, what we believe in and what we value.

Our Lady Queen of the Missions School in Kolkata was started on 1st August 1946 with 5 students and QMS Salt Lake was established in April 2001 as a branch of this School and now forming the destiny of more than 1500 girls in Salt Lake city. The school has built for itself a high reputation  that is cherished by discerning parents and students alike. It is a chance for  all to see the QMS community, comprising students, teachers and parents, as a centre aiming for  high expectations, high standards and high achievements.
Teaching is the noblest vocation known to the civilized world. It is what academicians everywhere live for; it is what Socrates died for. To teach our pupils, we have a faculty of 57. Our staff is committed, caring and professional in all that they do as teachers.  We cannot guarantee to resolve every difficulty but we will put our utmost into doing so. We are flexible and understanding, promising to work around difficulties which may arise in the lives of our young charges.  We therefore work very hard to ensure that our school is indeed a safe space and as far as possible, a happy place for each child. This is so important because the happy child is the child who learns and succeeds best. We strive to create an environment where each and every student is given the attention necessary to achieve her individual success.

Children are born with immense natural curiosity and have so many wonderful questions spinning in their minds. They want to know all about what they observe. Ambitious students have a willingness to try to do something great in whatever they do. Like all other educational institutions  our school also has certain rules and restrictions.  Our creative students like  great musicians or painters figure out that some rules are actually empowering, and that some can be stretched or adjusted when the occasion demands. Beyond academics, we provide a rich and balanced programme of learning and co-curricular activities, all aimed at moulding our pupils into complete, disciplined and well-rounded personnels. All students are encouraged to focus on their values and their relationship with others, to become aware of the world around them. Academically, we have a track record of years of consistent impressive results as a testimony of the school's tradition of excellence.
Dear Friends, Parents, Teachers and students, your valuable support  and cooperation is very much needed.Once again welcome to our official website.
