The Idea of starting St Thomas School in Ujjain.
It was in the year 2004 that the idea of having a school for the society (MST) originated in the minds of the members of the society working in Ujjain.. It was, to say, an initiation from the then Director General Very Rev. Fr Kurian Ammanathukunnel and the Regional Director Very Rev. Fr Peter Vattappara, who served the school as the first Manager, till 2007.
Rev. Fr James (Saji ) Thakadiyel was the first appointed principal and Rev. Sr Annie and Sr Maria Cicilia, started the preliminary work (including Admission process) for the school.
