Places from memory

  • visiting Ooty, the nearest town
    One weekend a month - we'd get to visit Ooty, the nearest town, on an 'outing'. It was a real treat... Here are some of the places I remember off the top my head. * King Star Bakery * Mohan's Department Store * Higginbotham's * Shinkow's - the Chinese Restaurant * Kurinji's (mmmm....paper dosas...) * Blue Hills Lodge. h/t to Yohaan for the last three. His choices at the BHL: ceylon paratha and chicken curry.

i love the way you have written this, its soo realistic and personal!

im an OL, and i agree with you that the statue of Henry Lawrence should be moved back to the senior school lawns, where it belongs!

no offense, but who does this new headmaster think he is?
he has made soo many changes to the school this year, and some postive, but others negative.
whatever it may be, the fact is that in Lawrence School, Lovedale, everything has a history and a tradition that have lasted for 150 years!
so, why is he changing everything now?!


Thanks, H! :)

It's an interesting thought about change.

Change is natural and must happen for any school to remain a dynamic force. It's a fine balance, isn't it, between that truth and a school's heritage; I'm not sure whether rewrting history was part of a master plan! ;-) I don't know enough about the reasoning behind the move. What are some of the other changes you've noticed?

Hopefully, Henry will make his way back home soon...

high up in the hills

  • Come spend time with me...
    ...high up in the blue hills of Southern India...and within the open spaces of Lawrence School, Lovedale. This boarding school is over 150 years old; it is where I spent nine years of my life - grades 4-12. Lovedale is an endless fount of stories...and I hope you enjoy reading mine! Names of teachers and students have almost all been changed to protect the privacy of innocents.
