    I had studied at the school grew around Pandatharippu Dispensary from 1955 to 1961.
    I have been in to the building houded the dispensary many times. The missionaries provided good service and education for the Tamil community in Jaffna.

    I have been living in Melbourne, Australia for the past 35 years.
