Date of issue : 09 September 2009

An Irish Lady Nano Nagle from Cork ,Ireland had founded “The Congregation Of Presentation Sisters ” in 1775. This Group came to Chennai in 1842 to work for Anglo - Indian Community and began work in St Ursula’s Anglo - Indian School already in existence. The Present Church Park land was acquired in 1904 and Foundation stone laid in 1908 for Sacred Heart High School , Church Park . The School started as a middle school with 137 Students and grew to become a private matriculation school in 1954.

Here comes India's 09-09-09 FDC. The Bhubaneswar GPO pictorial postmark reads "09 SEP 2009", while the special cancellation reads "09-09-2009". Very nice.
