DURATION | 2 Months (From October until May)


St. Mary’s Educational Society was registered as a non-profit organization in 1997, and subsequently established Mary’s Matriculation Higher Secondary School in Tindivanam, Tamil Nadu with the revolutionary motto: “Every child deserves an education, regardless of their social status, religion, caste or color.”

The St. Mary’s Educational Society was founded by the late Mr. Thomas Bunyan in 1972. At a time when very few schools existed in the town, he was moved with compassion at the plight of the poor and down-trodden children of the nearby slums who lacked even a basic education.

Still nowadays the school's primary focus is still to provide education to the poor children and adolescents of the city and surrounding villages.
