Ms Manobi Deka, a properly qualified young entrepreneur who had worked as a teacher in Delhi Public School, Guwahati came forward to collaborate with Gyan Sarovar Foundation to launch the school as proposed, and this was how the Sparsh group of Montessori schools came into being effective 2007 beginning with the first branch of the School at Zoo-Narengi Road established by Ms Deka as the Headmistress (the name ‘SPARSH’ was coined by Shrimati Chandralekha Rawat, Principal, Delhi Public School, Guwahati, very aptly, to signify ‘Tender Touch’ in imparting formative education to the tiny tots)
Within a short period of time, Sparsh was able to earn the reputation of being the Treasure Trove of child education based on the Montessori methods. ‘Perfection is unattainable but if we chase perfection we can attain excellence’ is the motto. Later, the hands of Manobi were further strengthened by becoming the sole owner of Sparsh with effect from 2009 as well as by attaining the ownership of the second branch of Sparsh at Six-mile, Guwahati in the same year, which too started flourishing under the guidance and supervision of Manobi Deka and her sister. The School celebrated its Five Year Excellence in 2013 with a colourful programme of song and dance mostly performed by the students, parents and teachers. Depending on the success, Sparsh has launched its primary section named ‘Sparsh High’ with effect from 2013 at the campus of Zoo-Narengi Road which has now become a full-fledged primary school having classes up to V.
As a result, the Sparsh group of Schools now comprises of Sparsh, Montessori having its branches at Zoo-Narengi Road and Anand Nagar, Six-mile, and Sparsh High located at the Zoo-Narengi campus. Most importantly, Sparsh is endeavouring continuously and comprehensively, to impart quality education to the budding talents, combined with multifarious programmes of child education such as learning by doing, value education, nature study, know your country etc. in addition to academics and co-curricular activities keeping in view the objective of ‘men making and nation building’.
