Knowles is signified by the colour Green.
Emma Knowles was born in New Jersey in 1840 and she spent thirty five of her years in India. During the period she founded three schools, Wellesley, Naini Tal and Queen’s Hill for Anglo Indian girls in Darjeeling. Aware of the necessity of a school for the children of her community in Darjeeling, she borrowed money and paid the rent of a building out of her missionary salary and started a school with thirteen pupils. Much later, in the 1920’s when the estate was acquired she received news of the fulfilment of her prayers with great joy.
