“The objective of the meeting was to advise the government on educational problems, to educate the Indian public to appreciate the need for a number of first class schools in India whose general training was designed to prepare students of ability for positions of leadership and responsibility in all walks of life……. This was an urgent need in a soon to be independent India.”
In line with this aim, the four Chief’s Colleges – Rajkumar College, Rajkot and Rajkumar College, Raipur, The Daly College and The Scindia School transformed themselves by admitting students who were not necessarily from the families of Chiefs or Princes. It was not a smooth transition and the determined Headmasters had to stand firm by their intentions. Soon other schools which were akin to the English Public School system had joined in and the IPSC was born.
