At the outset I give glory and honor to Almighty God for His bountiful blessing upon the school.

Genesis of the School: The pioneer missionary Evan. Letgou Gangte landed into Tripura (ICI Mission compound) on 14th August 1994, initially he was assigned to take care of the new believers at a village called Zagatram from 11 Sept. 1994 to 20th   February 1997 by ICI Mission. Since the mission was searching suitable Field to

carry out their own ministry, after three years a land was bought at Zamirghat (Manipuris Basti) under the guidance of ICI missionaries. The pioneer missionaries  Evan. Letgou Gangte, his wife  and Pr. Lethang Gangte shifted from Kisong (ICI Compound) to Zamirghat  (Manipuri Basti) on 27th February 1998.This date had a great significance in the history ESC., Tripura Mission Field, it can be termed as the Mission Foundation Day. Soon the mission felt an important of opening mission school in Tripura outreach mission Field. After ministering the gospel for three years, the mission took its decision to established school in Tripura. As per the Mission & Evangelism Board ESC,.Manipur instruction , Mrs.Chonga started the school on 21st January, 2001. Initially the school was called   Zamirght Nursery English Medium School and later on it was known as Synod Foundation English Medium School. The School had very humble beginning; it began with a handful of kindergarten under a thatch  roof, with a single teacher.
