Father Aleu : Good hindi teacher

Yes I agree! I remember that was his favourite punishment when he detained a class: to write / copy a hindi passage/lesson.

I must also mention here about the personal interest he took in the students he taught, I remember him visiting home to review my academic performance not that I was a bad student.

He visited every SSC

He visited every SSC student`s home to ensure that there was an atmosphere conducive to studies. He was strict in school, but after school hours he was one with the boys! He loved hiding his cane up his sleeve when he was on his rounds & he would whip it out like a sword when he needed to use it. I got caned quite a few times, but he remains my NUMBER ONE PRINCIPAL!
BTW, Fr. Aleu came all the way from St. Xavier's (in town) to be a concelebrant at my wedding mass in Bandra!

Good Hindi teacher too

Fr Aleu passed away a few years ago. In spite of his illness he kept his positive attitude. Imagine a Spaniard teaching Hindi. Yes he taught Science as well
