Administrative HistoryMiss Margaret Morrison (1863-1934) began her missionary career with the Church of England Zenana Missionary Society in 1904 and was accepted as a full missionary in 1911. She was stationed in the Punjab, in Narowal and later Montgomerywal. Her greatest achievement was the development of the Christian Girls' Boarding School where she worked for nearly thirty years. In recognition of her work there she was awarded the Kaisar-i-Hind medal for public service in India in 1928. In 1930 ill health forced her to leave Narowal for treatment in Australia but she returned to the Punjab as soon as possible and continued her work until her death at Clarkabad in 1934.
