info to be submitted by Lexa DANIELLS (nee Barker)

I have noticed that one of the schools that some Anglo Indians like myself attended is not listed. St. Thomas High School (run by the sisters of St. Charles Convent) in Lingarajpuram, Bangalore, South India. It used to be co-ed until the 2nd Standard after which most  boys attended St. Germain School, St. Joseph's School or any of the other Protestant schools like Clarence, Bishop Cottons, Baldwins etc.  I visited my old school in 1998 January when I was on a holiday in Bangalore. My maiden name was BARKER. Just wondering if someone had more information on the old school. You have done a wonderful job on the website. Thanks for your time. Regards Lexa
