Outing Sundays

While we boarders spent most of the year in house, we did have visiting Sundays and outing Sundays. The former was to allow relatives to visit their wards, and the latter was to allow the wards to be taken out for a day. On visiting Sundays I would watch with some envy the boys who had visitors and received food stuffs and pocket money. No one visited me, so you can understand. But I was engrossed with disgning and building a Dakota Airliner from icecream sticks, match boxes, cigarette packets cellopane and foil.

Dr Joe - Further Details - Where is the Stanislite when I need one?

Dear All,

I was able to contact the Holy Family Hospital regarding Joe. He is in 'ICU' and currently (this is an approximation till yesterday) the bill stands at Rs 41,503.

His patient number or IP number is 120760607

His registered name is 'Kaippary Alfonso Maumkel'

The procedure is to get the bill from the patient's family and pay your contribution to Citizen's bank (located within Holy Family Premises)

Because We Dare To Dream!

Francis D'silva (1977 Stanislite now in Norway) and I met in San Diego this evening. Over a few cups of coffee, dinner and drinks we asked overselves

How do we take Stanislaus to the next level?

Is it just a dream? Is it just a figment of our imagination that we want to see change that produces great citizens from our alma mater?

The answer is 'NO, NOT AT ALL'. Rome was not built in a day and so let us not expect overnight transformation. One thing is clear - Let us not forget the 'POWER OF ONE' -One spark ignites another. The active participation of Alumni, Teachers, PTA and School Authorities will definitely take us to the next level!

rock n roll

anybody who went to stanislaus, just around the decade that i happened to. will relate rock n roll to more than
just the music genre.

i'm refererring to the highly innovative vada+pav batter fried to create the crazy shaped rocknrolls. available in the canteen at rs. 1.50.

it was a time before trans-fats were banned. a time before we knew how to spell cholesterol. And acidity was something you measured in the physics lab.

Joe the Medicine man

If there's anyone who remains firmly in my memory, it is Joe who ran the infirmary. He was always dresssed very neatly, if I remember his favorite was a khaki pant and a white bush shirt worn out (as against being worn inside the pant) and it gave the impression of being clinical. He was also well groomed with a sharp moustache and hair that did not move out of place. His speech was crisp and to the point as were his actions. I should know because I spent a lot of time in the infirmary in my early days. But what was most amazing was his technique of giving an injection. He would throw the needle from close enough as one would a dart. When I last saw him during my visit to India, he had not aged and seemed to be as fit as a fiddle.

Altar Boys

Being a boarder also meant a rigorous religious upbringing. Morning prayers, 6.15 am Mass, Rosary, prayers before and after meals, night prayers, and during Lent who prayed most, We. Then there was being an Altar Boy, but all prayers to be learnt were in Latin. Somehow I managed and frequently assisted in mass from as early as 5.30 in the Priest's Chapel, St Peter's Church, and in the girls convent opposite our school.
