  14. Looks like the girls are well guarded what with those trees and that fence! I'll bet this is one of those strict Catholic schools! I notice the trees have been cut back so the girls can't climb out the window and onto the trees and down to the ground for a night of fun! ;-)

  15. My first thougth when I saw this was how cool the shade of that tree must feel, especially this time of year. Well played Magic!

    St.Columba school was established in the year 1832 by the missionaries Margaret and John Wilson, the founders of the John Wilson Education Society (JWES). Before they arrived in India, there were no schools for Girls in the city of Bombay, as it was then known. With the aid of the JWES, Margaret Wilson established this school, which was, later on, accompanied by the Wilson College.
