Miss. Alice Kimmins came to India in 1886 as a Missionary of the Zenana Bible and Medical Mission. After serving splendidly in Lahore and Benares, she came to Bombay where she was in charge of the Girgaum Girl’s school now known as the Queen Mary’s School, from 1892 to 1899. Bombay’s climate was unsuitable for the children of European origin. Therefore, she decided to shift to Panchgani to carry on her work to educate children of European descent.
She began her work in Panchgani and started a boarding school with 15 children of European origin of whom 7 were boys. From this beginning there developed the Boy’s and Girl’s school. She launched ceaseless building activity incurring an expenditure of over Rs. One and a half lakh.
