Welcome to SPS Darjeeling
"Youth," said Baron Pierre de Coubertin, "is the springtime of the body." Mens Sana in corpore sana in corpore sano - a healthy mind in a healthy body - has been the ideal of the good school in the centuries old Public School tradition as in the Vedic Indian tradition. Good health and an all-round intellectual, moral and academic education during school days are perhaps the most important assets a boy can have. For generations, Darjeeling has been renowned - not only in India but also in other Asian countries and in the West - as the unique hill resort where both good health and good education have been provided at St. Paul's School.

The Prefectorial system is an essential feature of St. Paul's. It assists the Rector and his staff in maintaining discipline and is also a channel for communication between the staff and the boys. Senior boys showing suitable qualities are chosen to be prefects. This is an honour and, at the same time, a means for stimulating responsibility and initiative, and for encouraging an understanding of human nature and balanced judgement. The ultimate honour in this system is to be chosen as School Captain in charge of the Prefects and with other school duties. In our system a boy may be appointed, first of all, as a Class Monitor. He may then become a Dormitory Monitor, pass on to become a Prefect, then a School Prefect or House Captain, and ultimately may be chosen as School Captain.
