My last visit to a school in India was to Yadavindra Public School. It was with some surprise that when researching for this post, I realised that the impressively-sized stadium that is part of the school, was built for the proposed 1938 Commonwealth Games - which ultimately, were held in my home town - Sydney. I'm glad I didn't know that at the time; I might have felt the need to apologise! Read full article

July 2010, I am in Kodaikanal, the highest hill station in southern India, (7000 feet above sea level). Kodaikanal is a town built around this amazing 100 year old school that features stone buildings, green lawns and spacious classrooms.
