On Friday, 22nd November 2013 we were proud to launch the Special Postal Cover. This cover has been specially designed with the attractive, heritage structure of St. Stanislaus School and pictorial postmarks; a desirable collector’s item and a novel gift.

Francis de Melo, Director, Xavier’s Institute of Engineering & St. Xavier’s Technical Institute, Mahim, ex- Provincial of the Jesuits (Society of Jesus), Bombay Province and Post Master General of Mumbai Mr. H. C. Agrawal handling mail and postal operations in Mumbai. He also held the post of Director, Mumbai GPO, which is the country’s largest post office.
