Travel back in time with the enduring stories of the intrepid St. Maur Sisters who brought English language education to Malaysia with their convent schools. Presently called the Infant Jesus Sisters, the teaching nuns began as a unique religious institute founded in France by Minim priest Father Nicolas Barre in 1666 and their expansion overseas started in the 19th century.

Lessons from my School traces the long and purposeful journey of the Sisters from the early days of arrival in Penang led by their indomitable leader − Mother St. Mathilde − to their rapid expansion across the mainland under the dynamic stewardship of Mother St. Tarcisius. In new and uncharted territories, the Sisters strove and persevered through turbulent times.
