St Patrick’s School has turned out students since 1891 and the alumni today may be 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.
The use of some school information, minor and immaterial though it may be, which a few of these ex-student bodies have acquired is unethical. We request all to refrain from indulging in acts that are dishonourable and detrimental to the goodwill of the school, and not in keeping with the Patrician spirit.
One understands that the school has, in its archives, the records of all admissions and withdrawals, the results of all the examinations and the fees paid by the students from 1891 till November, 2014. Anything a student of St Patrick’s School may need, can need or will need is available in the school itself. In addition to this any and every detail regarding the parents of students over the ages, the staff, the community and our relation with the world at large can be found in our records. This is confidential information and we remain the sole custodian of all such information. Alumni are provided references and testimonials from our database, the only authentic and official source, when required.
Though our blessings and good wishes are with all our old boys and all student groups, St Patrick’s School accepts, regards, believes and states that SPAAA is our alumni body.
We urge all alumni to join SPAAA and help in the growth of our dedicated alumni body.
All TWENTY-SIXTEEN functions will be conducted by the school itself, aided by SPAAA, where required. We have NOT authorised any student body to carry out any activity related to our school functions celebrating our Jubilee@125.
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.
