HISTORICAL VIEWS

After Independence, in 1947, most of the Christian schools with hostels remained in Pakistan (West Punjab). The need was felt to start a new school with hostel facilities which could serve the community through giving education to the Children of the rural area. Keeping in view, the foreign Missionary Miss Christians made a survey to start such a school.

Miss G. Lilly Swords, a missionary from USA took up this challenge and started this school up to 5th class along with Hostel in 1958. In the beginning there were only 65 children studying in the school and residing in the hostel. Thus Miss G.Lilly Swords is pioneer to begin the Institution. She had a great vision regarding education in India especially in Punjab. Along with this institution she started four primary schools in villages. Two of them later on put on grant-in-aid and are still serving the area. In this way this great lady with strong faith put her contribution in nation building when even Government had not enough school. In 1964 another very dedicated and committed Missionary from Germany Miss H. Grams took over from Miss G. Lilly Swords and expanded the school upto 12th class and hostel up to college. Most of the buildings with adequate facilities were built under the dynamic and constructive leadership of Miss H. Grams.
Along with these foreign missionaries the Indian missionaries also contributed by participating in the administration. They are also remarkable by their work. Miss J. S. Masih, Miss D. Dayal and Miss V. K. Andrews were among them.

Our Methodist Institution, Batala is playing a major role in the community educational development. Including Methodist Primary School (Punjabi Medium) Batala, Methodist Model School (Hindi Medium), Methodist Senior Secondary School, Methodist Hostel Batala and Hildegard English Medium School. Wehave also two Village School in Kahlwan and Harchowal.

Methodist Co-Educational Senior Secondary Institution is one the famous, reputed and prestigious Insitiution in this area of Punjab. It is situated in the out-skirts of Batala on Kahnuwan Road . Our Institution is serving the society since last 50 years. Our Institution is running on basis of no profit and is charitable (Minority) Institution (Under Indian Trust Act 1889) run by the Methodist Church in India is a Society Registered under the Societies Act XXI of 1860 bearing Registration No. 1155 of 42-43.

We are running a Co-Educational School from Nursery to plus two classes with Hindi and Punjabi Medium. We have at present 1500 students. We have also a hostel for boys and girls from Nursery to College students. In our hostel we have 367 students. Thus we have all the required facilities and environment of providing quality education.

Apart from our Schools there are four other schools in the town as feeder school to the Baring Union Christian College and Catherine Booth Salvation Army Girls College. Since few years it is becoming very difficult to find Christian teachers for Christian schools. The shortage of the teachers compelled us to think for the teacher training Institute. Up till now there is not any Christian Education College (Teacher Training College) in the Punjab state.
Thus the Delhi Regional Conference under dynamic and visionary leadership of our Chairman Bishop Nimrod Christian has decided to start a Lilly Swords Methodist College of Education in Batala. Which was started in …………… and inaugurated on ………………… by Ex. Chairman Bishop Romrod Chirstian.
