My Girls: Jumping Numbers by Marina Correia-Afonso (Parent)

December 11th, 2008

My Jumping ChildrenIt is never too late to say "Thank You St. Therese’s" for the many happy, formative years my daughters spent within your portals!

Magnificent Memories – by Malathi Seshadri – Head of Mathematics

December 15th, 2008

Malathi Seshadri‘St. Therese’s’ – words that bring back so many wonderful memories. The place where I started my career as a teacher in Goa, in 1967, the place where 3 of my children started school (the four of them are pictured here with me), the place that encouraged and implemented my work on programmed learning, the place where I made many wonderful friends…the list is endless.
