Hindustan Motors Limited (HML), India's first automobile manufacturing company was established before independence in the year 1942 by late Mr. B. M. Birla, the doyen of Indian Industry and coming from the renowned industrialist Birla family. The company started operations in a small assembly plant at Port Okhla in Gujarat and later on the manufacturing facilities were shifted to Uttarpara, West Bengal in 1948, where it began the production of the iconic “Ambassador” car.
Birlas are always known and highly regarded all over the country for their philanthropic activities. Under the visionary leadership of late Mr. B. M. Birla, the Management of Hindustan Motors Ltd. famously known as “HM” felt the need for imparting the best education to employees’ children and children staying in and around Uttarpara as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility. HM management also felt the need of a well-equipped school which would cater to the needs of the children in the vicinity and surrounding areas, facilitating educational and co-curricular activities which would groom the students into individuals with all round potentialities, to be able to carve out a niche for themselves in future and bring laurels to themselves as well as their alma mater; was the motto in grooming the institution with all modern amenities and infrastructural facilities. To fulfill the said requirement, HM management set up two schools within its factory premises in the name of Hindustan Motors High School and Hindustan Motors Education centre, presently known as Hindmotor High School (HMHS) and H. M. Education Centre (HMEC) and collectively known as HM Schools.
On 13th October 2001, the management of HM formed a trust in the name of “HM Education Trust” and transferred the day to day management of these schools under the umbrella of the said trust for the purpose of financial transparency, better monitoring and focused growth.
Dear Students, Parents, Teachers and Staff,
It is a matter of pride to pen down the message for the school website. My heartiest congratulations to the entire team for bringing out the dynamic and interactive website!
Right from its inception in 1965 to the present day, H. M. Education Centre has been the torch bearer, marching forward to spread light of education. The institution has paved the path of academic, cultural and behavioural excellence for each and every student. It is a great service to the society, you all have left an imprint in thousands of lives. It is absolutely admirable.
The key focus areas continue to remain – creating opportunities, challenging minds, encouraging innovation, embracing ethics & values, community building and adapting change. It has been proven over the years that the values and personality building of our students are sustainable. The investment we put into our children has helped them to achieve great successes over the last six decades. It has become a habit now, however, let me put a word of caution here … “Success come to those who work hard and stays with those who don’t rest on the laurels of past”. Yes! In today’s world, no institution of repute can afford to sit on its laurels. A decisive shift is being engineered that will help us to gain a global repute and it has to be done with lots of passion and excitement. I am confident that we have a very competent and committed management team, very dedicated and caring teachers and staff, very supportive parents and the Almighty to take us through this journey.
I wish all of you a very happening and successful year ahead.
Mr. Uttam Bose
