A Brief History

In 1975, several organisations combined their resources to open the doors to a newly created primary education centre. The express goal was to provide an affordable option to meet the expat communities’ pressing need for a distinctive approach to education in Dhaka.

It was 20 years later, in the mid-nineties the school changed its name to became known as ‘Grace’. Since then, Grace has expanded to admit students between the ages of 3–16 on three campuses. Amazingly, Grace has been part of the education of 2540 students over the years in its 40 plus years of operation. Grace looks forward to a bright future as students continue to learn to thrive!

Life in Bangladesh

What is it like to live in a large Asian mega-city?

Bangladesh is a nation like none other. Its vibrant colours, beautifully hospitable people and rich culture paired with the fast paced nature of an Asian mega-city provides many opportunities to experience life from a whole new perspective. Amongst it all, God is at work and it is experienced daily.

Bangladesh became an independent nation in 1971 after a nine-month war of independence. With a population of over 160 million people in a land area of only 55,598 square miles (144,000 square kilometres) Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated nations on earth. Since independence, Bangladeshis, as a people, have shown themselves to be resilient and determined to create a secure and successful future.
It is beautiful, from the rolling tea estates in the North to the golden beaches in the South, through gentle farmlands and into the thriving, chaotic metropolis of Dhaka where you can meet the true jewel in the crown of Bangladesh: the wonderful, humorous, welcoming Bangladeshi people.
