Sponsoring Online Learning for needy kids

IMG_8524 2.jpg

The pandemic has affected students greatly as all classroom learning have gone digital. After the online career guidance programme we conducted, and through some interactions with parents we noticed that many kids did not have dedicated devices for online study.

So naturally they fall behind in their studies as they simply cannot attend class. We requested Principal Sr. Arockia, along with class teachers to identify children based on their attendance in online class. They drew up a list of 21 children from classes V to X who needed the devices based on their online attendance pattern and economic status.

SSESA Secretary, Mr Vinay Pinto very happily sponsored brand new Lenovo and Samsung tab devices. We met all the kids 03 July 2021 through an interaction organised by Principal Sr. Arockia, and Vice Principal Felix and found all the kids were intelligent and eager to learn.

Many parents also came and were literally crying with joy. It was a happy and a sad moment. Each child sweetly wrote an individual letter to the school pledging that they will use the device for classes and learning, and not for games.

No Stanislite should be held back from learning. We must do what we can --- Vinay Pinto |SSESA Secretary

Teacher, Wife, Mother, Sister, Aunt and Role Model

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Teacher Elizabeth Rosario.

Elizabeth Deniz was born December 26th 1947 to Joseph and Maria Deniz in Bombay. She passed away peacefully at home and went to her eternal rest on May 01, 2021 at the age of 73 years. She was predeceased by her parents, sisters Martha (Santamaria), Julie (Mendonca), brothers Valentine, Agnelo and Xavier. Her youngest sister Bridget (Rosario) sadly passed away two weeks after her. She leaves behind her husband of 46 years Kenneth Rosario and their son Adrian and her two sisters Lydia, and Teresa. Multiple cousins, nephews and nieces around the world are also mourning this loss.

Elizabeth was an introverted, simple, private, caring, and soft-spoken person, and we would like to honor that tradition in paying her tribute as a teacher and mentor to both her family and students.

In her over three decades of instructing young boys, as a teacher and Vice-Principal at St. Stanislaus High School in Bandra, she helped mold 1000s of young minds as children and teenagers into the adults they have become and their characters sub-consciously guided into preparing them for the challenges of life. She put hours into marking papers and encouraging students to make sure they were putting in their best efforts. She developed mnemonics to remember math equations making the subject more palpable. As former students, all would like to say “Thank You”.
