The Meghalaya government on Tuesday decided to turn the century-old Pine Mount School, a residential school for girls into an international school.
“The institution needs special attention of the government and this brand itself (Pine Mount School) can be a Unique Selling Point (USP) to promote education in the state,” Chief Minister Mukul M Sangma said.
Expressing hope that the school would boost the efforts of the government to transform the state into an educational hub, Sangma informed that Rs 4 crore has been earmarked for the process of giving face lift.
“A complete master plan would be ready by next year and the amount earmarked would be for construction of a “green hostel” for students in which the source of power would be drawn from solar energy,” he said.
Sangma also informed that two other international schools with the same name and quality will be set up in East Khasi Hills and Garo Hills district.
Pine Mount School, a residential school for girls, was founded in 1900 as a government institution for the education of children of European descent. An old hard-bound Admission Register in the School Office has entries dating back to the year 1900.
