Bond of Boys 2015 – an evening of friendships and memories

The background of St. Stanislaus was lit up to welcome its alumni for Bond of Boys 2015 our annual reunion on Saturday 3rd January 2015.

Over 170 alumni and their wives came back to their alma mater to spend an evening rekindling friendships and memories. Grown men pranked each other shouting school “pet” names like they were back in school. 130 serving and retired teachers and principals and staff made the night memorable.

This year’s highlight was a performance by the Indian Navy band that also regaled over 600 students and teachers from schools across Bandra who had been specially invited for the evening. The crowd went ecstatic with the appearance of our alumnus Shantanu “Shaan” Mukerjee (Class of 1988) who then went on to sing with the Indian Navy band.

To inspire our present day students we felicitate our alumni who have excelled in their field of expertise. We also felicitate four ex-teachers each year to expresses our gratitude for the difference they have made in our lives. This year we felicitated Mr. Roger Drego (Class of 1967) an exceptional sound engineer, Maj. (Retd.) Leon Fonseca (Class of 1955) accomplished army man, Fr. Francis de Melo (Class of 1961) former Provincial of Jesuit Bombay Province and accomplished educationalist, Dr. Satish Arolkar (Class of 1967) accomplished orthopedic and plastic surgeon, Mr. Roger Pereira (Class of 1955) accomplished media professional. The teachers felicitated this year were Tr. Anna Menezes, Tr. Gladys D’souza, Tr. Peggy Albuquerque, Tr. Vivienne D’souza and Tr. Benedicta Fernandes.

An evening filled with nostalgia and fun came to an end with the singing of our National anthem.
