Talent Search

It was a herculean task for the Talent Search Team – comprising of Tr. Mary, Tr. Lorraine, Tr. Michelle and Tr. Lisa  to first of all short list the vocalists who were all indeed vying make it to the finals.

After sitting through and listening to our little talented singers, we finally cut down on 36 finalists.  There were also very talented little instrumentalists too.  The auditions were held on two different days for the vocalists and instrumentalists

Eventually the finals were held on the 7th of March 2017, where an extremely talented and experienced musician Mrs. Lenny Serrao was called in to give the final verdict.  She spoke to our little musicians and encouraged them to keep soaring higher and to make a notch in the field of music.  Kudos Stanislites remember you are Born for Greater Things.

Brainwave 2016

As we at St Stanislaus are committed to the all round development of our children, we promote not just academics and sports but many other extra - curricular activities as well.

One such activity to check the general knowledge of our boys of Standards 3 and 4 was Brainwave 2016-17, a Quiz held on 16th December, 2016 at 9.30 am in the School Hall. An elimination round was held earlier that month and four students (from each house) were selected to represent their respective houses to be quizzed in different fields such as Sports, Entertainment, Current affairs, Books and Academic subjects such as English, Maths, Science, History, Geography and many more.

The quiz comprised of five rounds.. namely, Kaun Banega Champion where each team was asked two multiple choice questions, an audio round identifying tunes of cellular companies and musical instruments. There was also a visual round identifying animated films and company logos. The most exciting was the rapid fire round and the last round 'Try your Luck' where the children were asked to burst balloons and answer the questions written on slips of paper that were in those balloons.

The Loyola House were the winners of Brainwave 2016-17.

All in all it was an entertaining and engaging morning that compelled even the audience present to put their thinking caps on a morning truly well spent!
