About 100 years back, during the British Empire, an Educational Initiatives from persons like - Late Shri Shyamlal Nandi of Pakurtala Village, Late Shri Hirulal Dutta of Telari Village & Late Shri Suren Babu of Arambag, helped to setup a small school at 'Pakurtala' (a neighbour village of Burul). After few years the school was transferred to Burul Village.
At the same time, Late Shri Benimadhab Ghosh & Late Shri Umacharan Chakraborty from Telari and Late Shri Ishan Chandra Roy of Burul took an initiative to establish a High School at Burul. Due to certain constrains they could not make it happen, but their dream was alive. Late Shri Ishan Chandra Roy on his death bed shared his dream of establishing a High School with his children. Later his son Late Shri Upendrsnath Roy & others came forward and donated 4-5 Bigha Land to build a school. Their relative Late Shri Nagendranath Roy also donated approx 1 Bigha Land for the purpose. Late Shri Prasanna Kumar Roy & Late Shri Bipin Bihari Roy gave the financial support to make Late Shri Ishan Chandra Roy's dream into reality. Thus in the year 1918, 'Burul Roy Institution' was set up. Late Shri Krishna Chaitannya was the first Headmaster of the school.
In the year 1920, 12th September the school was renamed as 'Burul High School.' That is the reason the school celebrates its Foundation Day on 12th September.
SHAHEED ANURUP CHANDRA SEN & OUR SCHOOL:
It was Burul School where Freedom Fighter ‘Saheed’ (Martyr) Anurup Chandra Sen, one of the planners behind the Chittagong Armorary Raid, joined as a teacher for a very few days to escape the eyes of the British Police.
He was born in the year 1899 at Noapara, Chittagong in a poor family. His father Late Shri Kamal Kumar Sen was an honest person & an independent minded man. Anurup Chandra Sen passed Matriculation Exam from Chittagong Madrasa securing 75% Marks. In 1918 he successfully passed I.A Exam followed by B.A Exam in 1920. Under leadership of 'Master da Surya Sen', he joined Revolutionary Group & within a short span of time he became one of the most influential persons of the organization. He also drafted the constitution for the freedom fighter group.
In 1922 he joined Burul High School and became a famous, ideal teacher among the students. The tenure of the job was merely 4 years, in the year 1926 he was arrested by police and was sent to the Alipore Central jail and then Mainaguri Forest of Jalpaiguri, where he died of cholera on 3rd April 1928.
