Anaivarukkum Thirunaal Valthukkal (Happy Feast to all)

With the coming of February every Stanislite gears up to celebrate the feast of St. John de Britto the patron saint of the Britto House.

A special canteen organised by the boys of class of class V to VII on 30th January, 2018 started off the celebration.

This year we celebrated the feast on 3rd February. Our celebration began with a solemn Eucharistic Mass. Fr. Ambrose Machado was the main celebrant with Fr. Malcolm Nato as the concelebrant.

Fr. Ambrose through his homily called us to be the light to the world.

A small cultural programme was held in the school auditorium. The prayer dance and the skit based on the Britto House motto ‘For God and Country’ only reminded us that by serving our nation we can serve God.

Masters Aaron DeMello and Jaden Gomes were the compere for the day.

With the solemn investiture ceremony we ended our Britto House Feast Celebration.


Photography workshop for Film Club Students


‘You don’t take a photograph. You make it.’'Ansel Adams.

The boys of the Stanislaus Film and Media Club understood the truth in these words on Friday, 23rd February 2018 in a photography workshop conducted on the school premises. The film and media club members belonging to the 8th and 9th standard were given this wonderful opportunity to gain deeper understanding of the art of “making” photographs.  Mr. Vipul Chedda from KSHITIJ WORLD conducted the workshop comprising of theory and practical components.

In the theory component, the students learnt about the various types of photography – nature, wildlife, food, architecture etc. A power point presentation educated the boys about the different kinds of cameras available to use. The most enlightening aspect of the workshop was the “Rules of composition” where students gained insight on the technical aspect of a photograph and how to enhance the subject within it. Their knowledge was also enriched with various tips on making the perfect picture and how to handle the camera appropriately.

The much awaited and most enjoyable moment of the workshop was of course the practical session. The boys were paired and given a digital camera each to put their newly gained knowledge to use. This helped them to relate their theoretical knowledge to their practical experience. It was so difficult to put down their cameras once they got clicking! The workshop concluded with a vote of thanks to Mr. Vipul Chedda and his team. The boys were inspired and excited by their great experience at the workshop.

It is said that photography is the only language that can be understood anywhere in the world. Through this wonderful workshop, they have certainly learnt a new and powerful language that will help them capture not only smiles but also souls!

At St Stanislaus School, on 21st December 2017, the programme in the auditorium began with a Christmas Play – “Christmas – a new beginning” with a strong message…

“It’s not Christmas, but Christ

Not merriment, but the Messiah

Not good-will, but God

Not presents, but His Presence

That can make every day, Christmas!!!! “

Later the excitement built up with the special appearance of Santa as he conducted an X-Mas Quiz. Students were gifted with a T-shirt and a packet of Cocoa Cotton Candy each. Christmas carols sung by our choir sounded like the angels singing from above. If we keep our hearts open and sensitive to the needs of others, we will be truly blessed in many measures.

That is the promise of Christmas.

St. Stanislaus School launches FIH approved Sports Complex

Founded in 1863, St Stanislaus High School has risen to become one of the leading educational institutions in Mumbai. Not only are they leading in academic standards but also in the sports sector. St. Stanislaus has produced many international hockey stars. And to take this legacy ahead and provide the students with world class facilities, the School inaugurated the St. Stanislaus Sports Complex, which boasts an International Standard FIH approved Edelgrass hockey turf and a portable 200 m synthetic athletic track, with a prayer for God’s blessings!

Speaking on the occasion, Father Frazer said, “Our students have the same potential that the earlier international players from St. Stanislaus displayed. They therefore deserve the best international infrastructure, which we are pleased to say, Astro Sports has achieved.”

“No School can afford to rest on its laurels and by the addition of this world class Astroturf to our sports facilities, I am sure St. Stanislaus High School will reach even greater heights in its sporting achievements”, declares Principal Anna Correa.

The school organised an inter school exhibition tournament for School Girls and School Boys from Bandra. Noted schools like Duruelo Convent High School, St Joseph’s High School, Mount Mary Convent High School, St. Stanislaus High School, St Andrew’s High School, St Teresa’s High School and St Aloysius High School sent their students to participate in the tournament. These Under – 14 children were seen enjoying the new facility by playing hockey on 4 different pitches simultaneously.

An Under – 16 exhibition match was also played between Don Bosco High School, Matunga and St. Stanislaus High School, Bandra. The Jesuit Management had appointed a special selection committee which had noted dignitaries like Mr. Joaquim Carvalho, Olympian and Arjuna Awardee, along with Mr. Viren Rasquinha and Marcellus Gomes – both renowned international hockey players, and it was their expertise which helped to get the setup done along with the technical expertise of “Astro Sports Pvt Ltd"

Later, a friendly exhibition match was organised between Ex – Hockey stars where Viren Rasquinha, Dhanraj Pillai, Marcellus Gomes, Adrian D'Souza, Rahul Singh, Devindar Walmiki, Edgar Mascarenhas and Rajat Sharma played to support and encourage our youth to participate and excel in sports!

Mervyn Fernandes, Gurbax Singh Grewal and Dr. Vece Paes also attended the launch event.

Synthetic grass (Edelgrass Turf) enables players to practice in the four months of the monsoon too and it also reduces the chances of injury. Another hockey great, Dhanraj Pillai, felt that ``a great beginning has been made''.

``The thickness of the turf at MHA is 12 mm whereas the turf at St. Stanislaus High school is ....... mm thick,'' said Jigar, Pratik & Nikhil, representatives from Astro Sports Pvt. Ltd. who helped the school set up the Sports Complex. According to them, the turf at St. Stanislaus School was laid keeping in mind that this turf can also be used for other sports like football, cricket etc which would be a good option for the entire community to come and play together resulting in enhancing their skills in various sports. In the second phase, we will also be installing a state of the art basketball court which can be also be used for futsal and other sports.

Spread across 38,250 square feet, this hockey turf is designed as per international standards suited for the children and residents residing at Bandra and around Mumbai.  Through this ambitious project, St. Stanislaus Sports Complex, looks to cater to the hockey, basketball, cricket and football enthusiasts of Mumbai at large, from the age of 5  and above.

 ‘We strive to set higher standards and quality, time and again, so that you get the best experience and don't have to settle for anything less,’ say  Jigar Doshi, Nikhil Sachdev & Pratik Doshi from Astro Sports. Pvt. Ltd.”.

Welcome to St. Stanislaus Sports Complex.
