A Jubilee of faith and grace

Day Star has now grown to have excellent infrastructure and enough class rooms. A beautiful well stocked library (the pride of Day Star). The computer lab with latest computers with comfortable backup system, well equipped Biology, Physics and chemistry labs, envious indoor swimming pool.

Mr. Ahmed remembers one of the bank officers saying that this school will be the best in the region, a place where children would not only learn to read and write and pass examinations but also they would learn how to communicate, behave and conduct themselves in a well educated and trained manner.

These above words uttered in 1984 have been proved prophetic. Many lives have been touched and changed remarkably in many ways. The people I have spoken to young and old reflect my feelings and agree with my thoughts that Day Star has touched and transformed us, here we have learned more than we taught and received more than what we have given.

Mrs. Joyce Davis remembers, ‘Now as I look back I must thank my colleagues especially for the questions they asked and continue to ask. It is this feature of the Management that made the working of the school very dynamic. Living in Bangalore now I know that many schools here are not asking questions that you are and therefore you are in many ways ahead of your times’.

Rt. Rev. Dr. P.K. Samantaroy the present Bishop & the Chairman of the Society and Dr. Philip Alexander, Secretary & Treasurer of the LWH & DSS Society are a source of inspiration and a guiding force at all times. The support and cooperation of many well wishers and partners of the School are part of this success story and will be together taking the School forward in the future.

Day Star is vibrant as ever and continues to live in many lives.

We look to God for blessings and guidance in our endeavours to bring this transformation in every child’s life at Day Star School!

Our Core Values

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
– Proverbs 22:6

Major ventures

In late eighties when computers were rare Day Star entered into an agreement with Apple computers to take up Computer aided learning.

Free or subsidized education for the deserving is provided; some children are supported even for their higher education in different schools and colleges outside Manali.

Smart Class: this program is used in all the classes. It is the latest and advanced software and multimedia technology to aid the child’s learning. Teachers are using it to explain difficult concepts and for better understanding of the topics.

Special needs is being effectively managed by a full time teacher and other team members. Much remains to be done. This department is nurtured and taken care by Mr. Benoni and his team in catering to the needs of differently abled children.

In 2013, the Handimachal therapy unit which was founded by La maison des Himalayas(France), signed a MOU with Day Star School to carry forward the services provided by the unit much more efficiently to the disabled children of Kullu valley.

The saddest moments were the untimely loss of our students
