Head Girl’s Message

Nikita Mohta

12 years ago, when I walked into this school, who would have such a privilege would be bestowed upon me and I would have the honour to serve as the Head Girl.

These pioneers were Mother Delphine Hart, Mother Teresa Mons, Mother Martina McCann, Sisters Alexia Egan, Benigna Egan, Veronica Fox, Gabriel Doyle, Miss Isabella Hart (M.Delphine's sister), a Miss McDonough(later named as Sister Xaveria), along with two other postulants, Miss Shanley and Miss Fitzpatrick. Sailing on a ship named The Scotia, this group of pioneers left Dublin on September 1,1841 from Ireland and landed at Babughat, Kolkata on December 29,1841. They were the first congregation to come to North India. Arrangements were made for a formal welcome and religious ceremony at the Cathedral on Portuguese Church Street.
