Teacher Teacher

There I was all of five years old, with my newest buddies and co boarders, Brian Edwards, and Bedford. We all looked similar, or so I thought. Except that I had straight hair define my cranium, Brian had this wierd red brown hair with a fancy curl on top and Bedford had a puff. I really can't remember the teacher, yet all I can remember of teachers upto the fourth class is cowboy teacher. Boy, she was the prettiest thing I saw and I fell in love for the first time. I guess she got the nickname 'Cowboy' because at a picnic she wore a tight pant with a checks shirt. You have to admit it suited her.

Joe my Hero - it's hard to imagine

'Tis hard to imagine the medicine man old and infirm on a bed.In this child's eyes all was well for Joe was his Peter Pan! Hard to imagine the medicine man with heart so large and full of love, old and infrm on a bed a battle weary hero whose had enough. Imagine the medicine man hale and hearty, infirm on a bed. Get up Peter Pan! The Medicine Man, our history he holds. Now give him a hand! make men in his mold! Medicine Man, our Hero Peter Pan. In a class by yourself both teacher and taught! Since words fail me and there's so much to tell, I just put it down as it came. So there you are! I hope to tell all I can remember especially in my very childhood when in that intimidating time, when there was one person who understood. That was Joe the medicine man.

SSESA - Joe's Drive - Half Way Mark!

Thanks to all those who have contributed to Joe's drive so far. We are about at the half way mark in terms of pledges and payments received.

The need of the hour is to redouble our efforts to reach the target of Rs 100,000 (1 Lakh Rupees).

We can do this together!

Regards.

Joe Maumkel Discharged

Joe Maumkel has been discharged from Holy Family Hospital and is recovering at home.

Some of us Stanislites have contributed towards part of his hospital expenditure. While Joe recovers, The Joe We Care drive will continue till the 28th February 2007. The monies collected will be handed over to Joe to help him with his post hospitalization expenses. This has been his second admission to the Intensive Care Unit of Bandra Holy Family hospital in the recent past.

100 RUPEES FOR JOE - OK, I AM VERY BESHARAM!

My Silent Fellow Stanislites,

We have 200+ members on this group, I am sure 'IF WE WANT TO' we can contribute atleast 100 rupees each for Joe. That totals to Rs 20,000/-

I am sure 100 rupees is something that all of you can afford.

So, instead of offerings at the church/temple/ agiary/mosque this week or this month, donate to help a fellow Stanislite. I am sure all of our God's will approve.

JOE WE CARE!

Joe MaumkelDr. Joe or Infirmary Joe or VI Joe or just "Joe"... we all have been touched by Joe Maumkel as we passed through St. Stanislaus High School.

Joe, who will have served St. Stanislaus for 60 years this September is in Holy Family Hospital.He is suffering from a serious heart ailment with complications. He is now out of the ICU and is recovering in the General ward, Room 425. This is his second admission within the last few months. His hospital bills are mounting and his family is finding it very difficult to pay these bills and have appealed to Stanislites all over the world to help.

WHAT ARE WE AFRAID OF?

I hear from certain quarters that folks are worried 'if we contribute to Joe, then there will be other staff who may need consideration'.

'Arre pet main roti nahi aur dawai ke liye paisa nahi - Kisko chaiye ye naukri?'

I know one thing THE ULTIMATE GOAL SHOULD BE TO HAVE

'A STANISLAUS TEACHERS HEALTHCARE INITIATIVE'

- The fund assists the school in sponsoring 1 year health insurance or pays partially for the insurance of all STAFF (TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATION, WORKERS(PEONS, GARDNER ETC))

'BORN FOR GREATER THINGS' - DO WE EVEN BELIEVE IN IT? - YOU TELL ME!

Dear Silent Stanislite Members,

I write to you with great sadness that after 60 years of service of Joe Maumkel, so far only 2 members have come forward to contribute towards his illness.

Are you all telling us that you dont have Rs 100-500 to spare for this good cause?

OR is this 'Born for Greater....' - 'GARBAGE'- 'ALL TALK NO PLAY'

We will get an exact/target amount (last week the hospital bill was Rs 43,501 and counting) that is required but write me a comment that you care and willing to assist in your own small way.

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.
