INTRODUCTION

Capt. William's School (CWS), a co-ed day school, was founded in April 2009 with a view to provide quality education to the children of this small town of Tura, Meghalaya. The guiding force in the opening of this school was to commemorate the many contributions made by the first Chief Minister of the state of Meghalaya Lt. Captain Williamson A. Sangma who spearheaded the movement to attain statehood way back in the early 70's. The school is run by Society, registered under the Meghalaya Societies Registration Act, XII of 1983. The school has a Managing Committee that caters to all the academic needs. The Managing Committee body comprises mostly of retired educationists of the state.

The school aims to provide quality education and all round development of the students of this remote town. The school's endeavour is to focus constantly on creating the leaders of tomorrow by laying more stress on discipline, group and individual activities, value education and to inculcate a sense of national integration among the students. The school admits students irrespective of any caste, creed, religion, community or social status.

CAPTAIN WILLIAMSON A. SANGMA

Captain Williamson Ampang Sangma, a pioneer in leading the struggle for the creation of the state of Meghalaya, was a statesman and a tribal leader. Born in Baghmara, in South Garo Hills District of Meghalaya, he entered the political field in 1952 and was subsequently elected as the Chief Executive Member of the Garo Hills District Council (GHADC) in 1954. He was elected to the Assam Legislative Assembly in 1957 but later resigned from the post to fight for the cause of separate statehood. Capt. Williamson A. Sangma along with other leaders accelerated the Hill State Movement successfully and led the sustained struggle by the Garos, Jaintias and the Khasis, for the movement from the 1950's

Meghalaya was declared the full-fledged state on 21st January 1972. Elections to the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly was held in March 1972, in which Capt. Williamson Sangma was sworn in as its first Chief Minister with majority. He being one of the major leaders of the Hills Statehood Movement, always craved for a better deal for the Garos who were economically worse off than their Khasi-Jaintia brethren. He also made sure that the Meghalaya Board of School Education (MBOSE), which he considered to be the prime importance was in Garo Hills.

Capt. Williamson Sangma was the first ever Governor of Mizoram among the Garos in 1989. After his death, succeeding Government of Meghalaya honoured him by naming several of public properties including educational institutes in his name.
