St Thomas School, Jagadhri
St Thomas School, a co-educational independent Christian school teaching in English came into being in 1966. This was the culmination of over 84 years of hard work in Christian education in Jagadhri. The result of all this hard work is that St Thomas School now has a roll of 2000 students and provides outstanding all round education from pre-primary through to year 12. It is considered to be the best school in the district which is home to over one million people. The Rev Doreen Riddell of the Presbyterian Church here in Aotearoa was the school's first principal.

Over the years, many needy young people have benefitted from financial assistance to study at St Thomas School and are now independent and making their own contribution to the community in which they live.
