“Many students do not have a conducive atmosphere at home to study, so we guide them,“ said Sister Rani Prakash, the headmistress, a nun.

“Sometimes teachers and even the headmistress personally visit the houses of some children who miss classes to bring them back to school as their parents at times don’t want them in school,” said Manon Arockia Mary, a staff member.
