A mark in the history of Mayo College was the resolution of the General Council and the Board of Governors to start an exclusive, residential school for girls on the 46 acre field, used earlier as the Polo Ground and later as playing ground and a farmland.
A landmark development was the Bhoomi Pujan and the foundation stone laying ceremony on the 1st of August 1987. Construction work started on a war footing and the admission process as well as recruitment of staff began in right earnest.
Known today as the ‘Sister School ‘ of Mayo College, the school strives to meet the vision envisaged by the founders.
We shall make it a special point to ensure that the ethos of the Girls’ School is imbued with Indian traditions and culture without ignoring the present and the challenges of the future. Indian values, dance and drama will play a special role in the life of the child at the Mayo College Girls’ School.
“Every child is a fountainhead of potential, which we at Mayo College Girls’ School recognize and respect. It is our responsibility to nurture the creative spirit inherent in every child. A variety of facilities and opportunities are provided to our children so that they may hone their skills and maximize their potential. Their ability to produce work of a superlative nature is what never ceases to amaze us. Our children are our strength and inspiration. They challenge us to give of our best and thereby enrich the learning experience at school.
A Mayoite is a multi-faceted individual dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in her chosen field. Neither will she compromise with the high standards she sets for herself, nor with the values by which she leads her life. We wish to produce leaders who will take on responsibility and have the courage to be instruments of change.
On completion of her schooling in Mayo College Girls’ School, we trust we send into the world a well-rounded personality, compassionate and sensitive, imbued with a strong sense of self-worth, and confident to take on life’s challenges as she traverses the long and interesting road ahead. “
