Our Alma Mater's Badge ...?

At the Sesquicentennial Road Races a motley group of Stanislites, both ex & present harangued me about the colour of our school badge on my athletic vest circa 1973/74 which I'd proudly pinned onto my tee-shirt for the event.

Their tirade was that the background colour of the Stanislaus, Bandra badge was always green, never ever blue.

Although the shade seems skewed [thanx to the Pune manufacturer & our person that overlooked it], here friends are my Loyola House badges 1970 thru 75 [std XI] which incorporate our school badge ... proof that our alma mater's badge was indeed blue, i.e. a mix of our school colours, green & yellow.

The front of the vest has the name of our school emblazoned sash format in our school colours green & yellow. The back has the erstwhile name of our city Bombay emblazoned also in our school colours.

When & how that changed ... I'd like to know.

Annual Stanislites in Australia (Melbourne Branch) picnic

Stanislite Picnic 2012 AustraliaThe third annual Stanislites in Australia (Melbourne Branch) picnic duly took place at Hatt Reserve, Williamstown on Saturday 27th October.  We had around 10 ex students with their families

Once again, it was Lester who led us in song.  

It was great catching up with ex students from a range of batches.  There was Lester from the class of 1966 and then there was Savio from the class of 2002.  How's that for a range of ages?  Boys generations apart with nothing in common except that they shared a tradition that is St Stanislaus and they came together to celebrate that tradition.

We would like to particularly thank Andrew Pinto for coming in quite early to reserve a shelter for us and Francis Castellino for actively organizing this event and all the ex students with their families who attended who made the day a special one.

Looking forward to this catch up next year.

Learning for Life: The spirit of St. Stanislaus

I was really looking forward to Sesquicenternary road race on 30-Sept 2012. I have been road running for many years and really enjoy the solitude that Bandra's empty streets offer at 5.30am. This was the first time I would actually run a race, even if an ex-students race. A brisk walk to the school background served as a warm up before the run. I was greeted with the background filled with kids from schools around Bandra of all shapes and sizes. There were the barefoot runners from St. Catherine's Home, Cardinal Gracias and Mahatma Gandhi Vidyamandir Bandra East to the well kitted boys and girls from the local schools.

All my illusions of a quick race and back home were soon forgotten when I encountered the festival like atmosphere at the ground. Thus began a long wait for our turn to run.  The races began from the Under 8's and ended with the Under 17's. Ours was slated to be the third last race. However it was time well spent as I was able to interact with the oldest participant Fr Joseph Prabu (Class of 1949) and many in between. All were impatient and eager to run. I also enjoyed the time interacting with the kids who were as eager as us to run.
