Retreat- a time to regroup ourselves

“In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion."

St. Stanislaus High School has always aimed at nurturing and developing academically, physically, spiritually and emotionally strong young ‘Stanislites.’ Hence a special Retreat was planned for our std. X boys on 17th and 18th July from 8:45 am to 3:45 pm. The Catholic boys had their retreat at the Retreat house in Bandra and the boys of other faith had a retreat planned for them in the school.  Various topics that would help our boys were touched upon. They got a chance to focus on themselves, their spirituality, their future and their relationships with each other and God.

St.Stanislaus Alumni kick-start Film and Media Club’s activities for 2018

Our Film and Media Club boys of St Stanislaus High School were presented with one such opportunity to expand their minds and horizons on Saturday, 28th July 2018. This was in the form of a workshop conducted by alumni of our school – Errol, Milind and Nikhil. The workshop focussed on various career options in the vast world of media- namely film, advertising and event management.

Errol, an actor, director and producer by profession shared his expertise and experience in the film industry and the editing aspect of film.

Milind, an advertising professional took the students on a journey through the winding streets of the advertising world. The boys learnt about the interesting and competitive strategies employed by the big players in this field through case studies on popular brands like Volvo and Burger King.

Nikhil gave the students an insight into the glamorous world of events. The students realised the effort and team work that goes into organising events that range from intimate gatherings to the global leve

The boys were an enthusiastic audience who greatly appreciated and benefitted from the practical knowledge and experience of these three wonderful facilitators. It was indeed a marvellous beginning to the club’s activities for 2018!



It is always a proud moment for the Teachers and students of St. Stanislaus High School when their Std. X boys do well at the Board Exam.

This year too our boys made us proud with their success.  Their hard work and determination helped them to achieve their goal. Hence a special programme was held where we felicitated them for their efforts.

 Students received Scholarship, academic and non academic prizes.

There were 27 Students who topped the school by scoring 90% and above at the Boards. These toppers along with their parents were applauded for the commendable performances.

In total there were 90 students who received prizes.

The experience shared by these boys will surely be a benchmark for the present boys to follow.


Vice Principal’s Day

We celebrated the birthday of Fr Malcolm Nato S.J. as the Vice Principals Day on 6th July 2018. It began with a holy eucharist con-celebrated by Fr Frazer Mascarenhas S.J. our manager and Fr Malcolm Nato S.J. our Vice Principal. A prayer service for boys of other faith was conducted in the school hall. It was followed by cutting of the cake in the staff room during the short break. A special assembly was prepared by STD 10 C in honour of Vice Principal’s Day. The student council expressed their love and gratitude with a birthday cake and a card.


Van Mahotsav

On 17th July 2018, our school celebrated Van Mahotsav in the Arupe Hall, to create enthusiasm among students for forest conservation and planting trees.

The programme began with the felicitation of our guest Mr. Marvin Fernandes and his team. Fr Gerard S.J., Tr Anna, Sr. Arockia, the teachers and students who are members of the nature club were partakers of this celebration. A video on the significance of Van Mahostav was presented to all which was then followed by a meaningful song, ‘Na Kaato Mujhe Dukhta Hai’ that highlighted the pain of Mother Earth and nature which is gradually ceasing to exist due to the impetuous attitude of human beings.

Fr Gerard S.J. gave a very inspiring thought on Care for Nature. He agreed that at some point he too did affect nature but he also shed a light on how nature always gave back to him. He encouraged the students to protect the environment in all ways possible. Our guest Mr. Marvin gave a presentation and had a very profound interaction with the boys on the topic. After this, small saplings were planted by our guest Mr. Marvin, Fr Gerard, Tr Anna and the Nature Club committee members. The programme ended with the distribution of saplings to each student with a promise to grow and nurture that plant into a huge one and become nature crusaders.

This celebration was the best way to promote the need for planting and tending of trees to prevent global warming and reduce pollution.

We were then taken for breakfast after which we were shown our timetable. Our schedule was very tough. Waking 4:30 in the morning for roll call, drill practices, P.T etc. We also enjoyed games we played like volleyball, Tug of war etc. On the 21st of June we all practiced yoga as the day was observed as the international yoga day. we were shown the different parts of the rifle and all of us had a hand on it. We got a chance of range firing. It was a wonderful experience for all of us. Then we were divided into 4 groups and we competed against each other in sports, volleyball and tug of war. 5 of our school boys won medals. Alas!!! The most awaited event for all of us. The finals of the drill competition. We could not believe that we stood first in the competition leaving all military schools behind. Thanks to our ANO Mr. Rostan D’silva for training our boys so well. We were awarded in a cultural program in which many of our boys took part in singing and skit. It was a wonderful experience for all of us and we enjoyed a lot. We returned back home on the 27th June morning.
