“Life is divided into three terms – that which was, which is and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present, to live better in the future.”

What makes the CHS History Department so unique:
The faculty members are passionate about the subject as they bring to life the chronicles of the past, generating curiosity among the students with a variety of pop quizzes, videos, role-plays, graphically illustrated PPTs etc. Healthy and constructive discussions are encouraged among the children to develop a national and global understanding of history and awareness of events.
“History is WHAT happened way back WHEN.
It is WHO made it happen.
It is WHERE we started. History is WHY something
happened and HOW we have learned from it. History teachers at Clarence create the interest and enthusiasm to find answers to these questions among the students.”
