Eureka! The Story


It all began in 1866, on the banks of Orange River, when Erasmus Jacobs discovered a small brilliant pebble. He had stumbled upon it while playing on his dad’s farm. This glimmering stone, on careful examination and refinement, turned out to be a valuable diamond, subsequently named “Eureka”. On it’s discovery, Kimberley, Northern Cape, a town in South Africa became the diamond-producing centre of the world.

At Kimberley, The International School, India, we believe that all children are like brilliant pebbles on the banks of society. By carefully polishing and refining their distinctive qualities through the various interdisciplinary tools of education, we can produce diamonds i.e. confident individuals with character who are prepared to transform the world.
