Stanislites celebrate Moon Landing Day

The science club and social studies club boys of St Stanislaus High School enjoyed a wonderful celebration of Moon Landing Day at the Nehru Science Centre on 19th July 2019.

The visit began with a large format science odyssey film titled Aircraft Carriers: Guardians of the Sea. Watching the film on a huge dome screen projector felt like we were on those large carriers sailing the seas. This was followed by an amazing, up close and personal look at the moon. Yes, you read it right! It was during the day and  with a special visual presentation through a giant animated sphere. The composition, surface, phases and previous lunar landing spots were seen by the students. Later  half the students took a tour of the science centre and participated in a workshop and demonstration of a water rocket. The other half watched a special screening of the movie ' First Man' which told the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the historic Apollo 11 flight.

Arthur C Clarke said,' The moon is the first milestone on the way to the stars.' This Moon Landing Day celebration was definitely an inspiration and a milestone for the future scientists and geographers of St Stanislaus.

On Monday, 1st July, the boys of standard 7th, 8th & 10th went for an educational visit to the Maharashtra Legislature (Vidhan Bhavan).  The Maharashtra Legislature comprises of the Legislative Assembly (Vidhan Sabha) and Legislative Council (Vidhan Parishad).   The Speaker, Chief Minister and the Council of Ministers at the Legislative Assembly debated on  issues arising due to water scarcity and water clogging in low-lying areas of Mumbai.

They further brought forth the need to ban plastic bags but also spoke of its aftermath with the rise of unemployment among the people working in large scale plastic making businesses. Later, the boys were taken to the Legislative Council where Mr. Vinod Tawde shed light on the importance of Marathi Language in schools and colleges, and spoke of different ways in which children can be engaged in learning Marathi with ease. It was definitely an enriching visit to understand our civil system.

Vale et Deus sit apud vos Fr. Malcolm

He came, he saw and he conquered our hearts

It seemed just like yesterday that we had welcomed Fr. Malcolm Nato as our New Vice Principal.

The first thing that caught our attention was the sweet genuine smile that he had for everyone.

As time flew by his pleasant persona helped him to create a niche for himself in our hearts.

A man with simple living and high thinking would be the best way that we could describe Fr. Malcolm.

His ability to see positivity in every situation, his calm demeanour, his affable personality helped to create a good rapport with the staff and students.

Even though Fr. Malcolm was with us for a short span of time we cannot forget the love and dedication with which he served this institution and now as he leaves us to continue his journey as a Jesuit educator, we the Stanislaus family would like to wish him good luck and good health always.

We would like to conclude our wish with this prayer:

As you go Father, may you walk on the bed of love on which our prayers are falling softly every day.

As you go Father, may you travel with Jesus Christ at your side.

As you go Father, may His light show you the path and be your guide.

And as you go Father, May God hold you in the palm of his hands always. Amen
