The first Presentation Sisters arrived in Madras on the 13th January 1842 and started their work for the Lord in this land.
The sister's first foundation was at George Town educating both Indians and European girls. This foundation was established by the widow of an English Officer, Colonel Smith. After the death of her husband this lady led a very pious life looking after orphans of Catholic Soldiers. In 1810 Mrs. Smith started a regular school for the orphans, this school was none other than St. Ursula's which was formerly known as St. Mary's Orphanage School, George Town.
