Bond of Boys 2013 Celebrating 150 years of Jesuit education and value-centered dedication, St Stanislaus High School, held it’s annual ‘Bond of Boys 2013’ at the school background on the 5th of January, 2013. e celebrations started off with the traditional lighting of the lamp; followed by notable guests being escorted by the School Council. A heart-warming introduction was given by the Principal, Rev. Fr. Jude Fernandes S.J. who spoke about the sesquicentenary anniversary of this Jesuit Foundation and the various milestones that the institution has trodden upon. To revive lost memories and to rejuvenate timeless classics, an audio-visual, prepared by a senior ex-student encapsulated the many feats and wonders that St. Stanislaus has achieved since it's existence. It created a nostalgic scenario wherein boys and men alike felt all but the need to return to school and re-live those fabulous, worth-cherishing memories. ereaer, various ex-students per-

formed in multi-cultural events like singing, dancing and acting. It so seemed that the tables, which were well adorned according to each respective year of batch welcomed one and all to their own ’tiny havens’. Hoards of ex-students grouped with their own class mates and teachers; chatted, joked and even clicked memorable photographs. Talking about careers, current life styles, etc. over dinner, young and old alike entertained themselves to their hearts’ content. A Teacher remarked that seeing a mischievous little 'brat' become a well-to-do disciplined doctor or a professional in his life; is indeed God’s Masterpiece of Creation! Yes! Such quality education supersedes all that we need in our troubled world, to see a child bloom into a wondrous citizen who looks upon his/her school with pride and says ‘All that I am today is because of what I learnt at my 'Alma Mater'!’ Joshua Jonathan Norris
