Haji Muhammad Mohsin Government High School was founded in 1874 by the then Government of
Bengal. Expenditure was provided by The Mohsin Endowment. (Haji) Muhammad Mohsin (1732-
1812) was a great philanthropist of this subcontinent. He was a confirmed bachelor and inherited a
huge property, especially from her sister Munnujan Khanam. Though Mohsin was a very rich person
he spent much on education and social services, irrespective of religion or color or cast. He founded
a trust namely The Mohsin Endowment. After his death Government of Bengal took over the trust
and spent money for the poor students.
Usually taking donations in government schools in Bangladesh are not common as they are fully run and controlled by the government. The financial year is July – June. Ministry of Education allots the budget as is submitted by the school authority. Basic needs for teaching-learning are always done quite sufficiently by these allocations, but on some occasions, it may not be adequate for various development works like infrastructural works. Anyway, taking the land crisis of the country into consideration government has taken a project of making ten storied buildings in each government school. Our school is on the priority list and soon we are going to have it.
Though the government schools are financed by the government, many old schools were founded by the local philanthropists. It is often seen that people donated money in different forms for the establishment and running these schools. Yet some lion-hearted people, alumni try to help schools in different ways. Some alumni of Haji Muhammad Mohsin Government School also tried to help. For example, Dr. Sultan Ahmad, batch 1953 donated money for running scholarship, and each year few students get benefited from there. Professor Younus Ahmed Khan, batch 1981 donated internet equipment for the computer lab. Likewise, anyone can make donations in any form (i.e. books, computers, smartboards, etc.). We are trying to decorate a room for launching an archive of the school where we want to preserve the antiques and nostalgic things or documents we have. Our school will appreciate it if offers are made to establish the archive and run it.
