Mother Teresa, better known as Saint Teresa of Calcutta was born on 26th August 1910 as Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu at Skopje,
in the Republic of Macedonia. At the young age of eighteen she moved to Ireland to learn English and then shifted to India
in 1929 where she lived for most of her life.
Mother Teresa received a number of honours, including the 1962 Ramon Megasaysay Award for peace and international
understanding and the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. She was awarded with 'Bharat Ratna', the top most civilian award in
1980 by the Govt of India. She was canonised/ recognised by the church as a Saint on 4th September 2016, and
the anniversary of her death (5 September) is her Day of Feast.
It's in honour and recognition of her services to the Country and the poorest of the poor, the dying and
the destitutes, that the Varun Bajpai Education Society has aptly decided to dedicate the School in her name
as a mark of respect and obeisance to the Great Soul.
