Every great work has a humble beginning so also the history of Christopher Day School. The people of Nimpura felt the great need of having a school in their locality, so , Fr. Gilbert Pinto, with the financial of Mr.D’Souza started Christopher Day School , a catholic institution under the management of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Calcutta on 21st January, 1977.

Fr. Gilbert Pinto was in-charge of the school with few committed and reliable teachers. From 1978 to 1983 Ms.Elsy Menon was appointed as the teacher in-charge of the school. From 1981 – 1983 the school was entrusted to Rev. Fr.Joachim With the arrival of the Servite Sisters a new chapter was begun in the history of Christopher Day School in February 1983.

The school finally got the permanent NOC from the West Bengal Government, on 3rd January 2002 in the silver jubilee year of the school. The first batch of class X students appeared for their ICSE examination from Sacred Heart School in the year 2004. On 7th June 2010 the Servite Sisters after rendering 27 years of committed and joyful service handed over the Management of the school back to the diocese.

At the invitation of the Archbishop Lucas Sirkar SDB of the Archdiocese of Calcutta, on the 1st of March in the year 2011, the management of the school was handed over to the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of Saints. Bartolomea Capitanio and Vincenza Gerosa, an International Congregation founded in Italy in the year 1832 and came to India on the 17 of March 1860. The Society of Sisters of Charity from its inception has developed a profound consciousness that the education of the youth is a vital component of the charisma of its foundress St. Bartolomea Capitanio who held youth “Very dear to her heart” and committed herself whole-heartedly to their personal growth and development so the t they would become agents of change for a just society. After the example of this saint Sr.Roshni Monteiro served this institution as the Principal from 2011 March to 2014 June. The responsibility is handed over to Sr. Nisha who together with the entire staff and the management tries to lead the school to greater heights.
