Greetings to all Patricians.
St Patrick’s School in the last one hundred and twenty five years has touched many lives, created many characters and charted many destinies.
We at St Patrick’s School today are strongly moving ahead with the same spirit and dedication.
We would like to state that St Patrick’s School is open to any alumni or group/s of alumni who may want to return the spirit of cooperation imbibed in them, who may want to undertake a project or partner with us in the betterment of the school. However these projects must have the approval of the Executive Committee of St Patrick’s School.
All alumni are welcome to visit St Patrick’s School to relive their school days. Alumni wishing to do so should contact the school.
We wish all Patricians the very best.
Nigel Michael D’Souza,
Dear Members of the Patrician Family,
In January 2016, St Patrick’s School kept its date with destiny.
It is one of the very few schools to complete 125 glorious years in the service of education.
January 28th, 29th and 30th, 2016 : We had the Eucharistic Service, Concert, Various Programmes and Felicitation of Principals and Teachers, past and present.
July 2016 : A Football Tournament (CCBI and Guest Schools).
We are now eagerly waiting for the final stage of the celebrations.
November 2016 : Parent Day Programmes.
December 2016 : School Sports and Alumni events (including an epic get-together of the alumni) in partnership with SPAAA.
We welcome all to be a part of this historic occasion.
St Patrick’s School has turned out students since 1891 and the alumni today are found all round the globe. We are happy to state that Patricians the world over are well established and settled in life and are proud of their heritage, of their Patrician legacy. It is therefore natural for Patricians to assemble together and form, where they are now, clubs or groups or ententes or interact through the electronic media to shoot the breeze, to chat about the ‘good ole days’. We at St Patrick’s School would love our ex-students to do so. Surfing through the web, or wading through Facebook, we find many such, and are happy. But our boys, and girls nowadays, should keep in mind that any data sharing should not undermine a fellow Patrician, nor should it move beyond what is ethical.
We wish all our boys and girls all the best in life. God Bless !
125 AND BEYOND : Quasquicentennial celebrations at St Patrick’s School, Asansol. Come 2016, St Patrick’s School will join the annals of world history as one of the very few schools to complete 125 glorious years in the service of education. This is a landmark in the history of the Indian educational process. On the advice of the Archbishop the Christian Brothers opened their first school outside Calcutta. This was St. Patrick’s School, Asansol. Br. Paul Kinnear was appointed Director. The school started with 4 brothers and 13 boys. The rest is history which you are all aware of. To commemorate this, we at St Patrick’s feel it our duty and obligation, to mark this momentous occasion in a manner commensurable to its importance. We appeal to all students, present and past, to be an active participant in the making of the history of our school. It is in your hands, Patricians, to write the history of St Patrick’s School; 125 years and beyond.
