Some nostalgic memories on this Teachers Day 2013

Fr. Anthony Casale SJ

Fr. Anthony Casale was our Principal, Geography teacher and a Geologist to the core. He was the  kindest and the most gentle of Principals we had, but his love for a boring subject like Geography and inert stones was not only baffling, it was a mystery to most of us in those days.  Although we did not know the importance of Geology then, today in the context of tsunamis and earthquakes it is important to have a thorough knowledge of rock formation and rock structure before design and erection of any structure. He had single handedly collected some rare rock specimens and the school has rightly honored him by displaying them in a small museum. 

Given a choice between the punishment (caning) then meted out to us by the Asst. Principal Fr. Aleu and Principal Fr. Casale, our boys would certainly prefer Fr. Casale. There was trick in taking his punishment, the more you shouted or screamed loudly, Fr. would be more gentle and tender in his subsequent strokes of caning and thus one would escape punishment very lightly. He was like a shepherd leading and guiding a flock of sheep. Gone but certainly not forgotten lives in our heart and minds

Tribute to Fr. Valero Aleu SJ on his 13th Death Anniversary

Remembering a visionary Spanish missionary, who came to India and left a huge imprint on the school,  the countless pupils and the people whose lives he touched. Despite being a foreigner, not only did he do his masters in Hindi but mastered the language to teach us. We are so blessed and grateful to have such a dedicated teacher, vice principal & principal (1961-82)   He died on 26th July 2000 and was interred at Sant Cugat, Barcelona, Spain.

Those were the days when communication from abroad was difficult and not easy. The news of his father’s death was received by him when he was teaching in a class and that too after three days.

Truly an apostle on earth with a message that education is not just preparation for life but education is life itself, that education is not just filling, but the lighting of a fire. Some of his words “Listen! Listen!  After so many decades, still keep on ringing in our ears.
