I am greatly indebted to the founder of our school Rev.Mother Aloysia for her noble vision of establishing St.Ann’s High School for girls in Mangalore at a most difficult time. I would like to place on record my deep appreciation of the long line of past Headmistresses’ for their far sighted visionary leadership in developing the school to its present status. I would also like to thank the past
