Lengua Islamia T.I.A. opened its doors on January 16, 1956. The acting
Principal at that time was Mr. Ramjohn Ali. Headmaster as he was called
had a staff of five assistant teachers: four males, one female. At the
start of classes 238 pupils were enrolled. Some of these first pupils
went on to become teachers at the same school and today have retired
from the service.
