About three decades ago, parents eager to give their children good education in English Medium had to opt for some of the hill stations in India. Before winter started, most such parents and guardians were found heading towards these stations to bring their children home for Winter vacation, and this too, after depositing a lot of money there.
With a view to reducing the flow of Nepalese revenue outside, some farsighted Nepalese citizens came up with a proposal of establishing English medium schools within the country to impart quality education to Nepalese students. In the year 2038 B.S., under the initiative of Mr. Rajesh Khadka ,Mr. Gopal Kumar Basnet, Mr. Sudhir Siwakoti and Mr. Dinesh Malla, Little Flowers’ English School came into being in the then hamlet of Birtamode in Jhapa with a total number of 47 students and 4 teachers ranging from classes Nursery to Grade II. Now, Little Flowers’ English School is a full-fledged Higher Secondary School catering to more than 1800 students and is, perhaps, the only school with all the required infrastructure in the Eastern Development Region.
Inspired by the success of Little Flowers’ English School and encouraged by eminent educationist in Kathmandu, Graded English Medium School (G.E.M.S.) was established by Mr. Rajesh Khadka, one of the pioneers of LFES, in the year 2041 in a rented house at Sanepa Height in Lalitpur with a total of 78 students, and 18 teachers teaching from Nursery to Grade III. A few years later, the school expanded and was also housed in Kiran Bhawan. As a result of the sense of commitment and untiring effort of the management, the devotion of the staff-teaching or non-teaching and the continued support of guardians, ‘GEMS’ proudly stands aloft at Dhapakhel in a harmonious educational environment with educational programmes unequally by other institutions and can proudly boast of having almost all the infrastructure required by an educational institution in level with international standard. The Primary Wing and the Primary hostel are still housed at Kiran Bhawan in Sanepa. At this juncture, it would be totally unfair to ignore the valuable contributions of academic pillars like late Mr. Parsuram Roka, who served in the capacity of Principal for nearly a decade.
