Six Decades

 In another two years it will be six decades since I left St Stanislaus High School for good. As I stood with my box and bedding in the shed as we called that large space downstairs, I bid farewell to other boarders who passed by me.  In retrospect, I was both sad and glad. This had been my home for almost a dozen years. During my stay as I grew up with almost 200 other boarders, I learned to be independant, resourceful, tough, and to some extent disciplined. 

I took a sabbathical from this group of Alumni and now am back to observe what other more recent ex students are doing. Its a pleasure to be a part of this SSESA.

What's your Nickname for our Teachers

Referring to teachers and masters by their nicknames was very much prevalent during our school days, i.e. around the ‘50s and ‘60s. Besides learning mathematics, science, languages, history, geography and discipline for that matter from our teachers and masters, the forty or fifty odd boys in the class would study intently these teachers and masters, observing their traits and come up with interesting nicknames. It was out of respect and a degree of fear that a teacher or master was never directly addressed by his or her nickname. However, behind their backs, more often than not, these teachers or masters were referred by their nicknames

Stanislites Australia Reunion


Howdy Stanislites,

Please turn to page Australian Stanislites in your Facebook, to see the photos of the recent dinner dance. Here's one of the boys, young and old, belting out the school anthem and a couple or three others, to whet your want for more! It was lovely to catch up with the the usual suspects and then a few more, all dressed in their second-best finery with name badges flashing in the flickering candlelights.

After the initial meet and greet "oh, so nice to see you again" and "you're looking not a year older since I saw you last year", it was time for the traditional sing-as-loud-as-you-can school anthem, belted out in about 14 or 15 different voices. The star of the line-up was Craig D'Souza, still studying in Std III and here in Melbourne on holiday. There his is (please look at photograph), standing right next to the oldest man in the group, Ken Fernandes - although, you wouldn't have guessed so by looks alone (please look at other photograph). And then (looking at the photo again), draped around them is the usual rag-tag bunch of muffins.

Now in its 6th year, we may have been a bit down in numbers this year, but we surely made up for it in enthusiasm. As usual, our DJ Michael Pinto was a great hit, keeping those toes - ours, that is - twinkling away on the floor. And just to spice things up a bit, this year we introduced the masala, that special music that's world-famous in Bandra. So popular was it, that the dancers insisted on a second helping. The masala was also the cue to award spot prizes to the best dancing cooks on the floor, whether with ladle or with handkerchief, and what better prize than No Worries Curries masala packets? Kindly donated by Claudette. Those of you who did score a packet or two, please feed us back on the results. To the others, you can always order your pick online (as opposed to me, who works on his pick-up lines).
