School Background
When the great Jesuit Archibishop of Calcutta, Rev. Paul Count Goethals died in 1901, a group of admirers, headed by the Advocate General of the High Court, desired to erect a memorial in his remembrance. It was decided that a school would be most appropriate memorial to a great educationist and the Christian Brothers were asked if they would conduct it. Kurseong was the site chosen. The school that was to become known as Goethals Memorial School was formally opened on 30th April 1907 by the Lt. Governor, Sir Andrew Fraser.
