Mumbai school kickstarts 150 year anniversary celebrations
Nov. 24, 2013
One of the oldest schools in city, St Mary’s ICSE, Mazgaon, kicked off its 150 year anniversary celebrations on Saturday amid much fanfare. The school, which was founded in 1864, will host a series of events over the next one year.
Governor of Maharashtra, K Sankaranarayanan, who inaugurated the celebration, said, “During the last 149 years, the School has rendered invaluable service to society by providing value-based education to several generations of students.” Municipal commissioner, Sitaram Kunte and Cardinal Oswald Gracias, Archbishop of Bombay were also present. Remembering his school days, the Governor said, “School days are the most memorable days in one’s life. Today, however, I am feeling a little envious of these students. The students of this institution are fortunate to have one of the best equipped Schools with an outstanding faculty to teach.”
The postmaster general, Col. K.C. Mishra (VSM) also unveiled a special postal envelope to commemorate the occasion. The schoolboys entertained the audience with action songs and a live band.. The school was founded by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), a Roman Catholic religious order founded by Ignatius of Loyola in 1540. The school annually hosts ‘Immaculata’, an inter school fest with a lot of innovative events.
The school alumni include renowned conductor, Zubin Mehta, actors Boman Irani and Kunal Vijaykar, business tycoon, Azim Premji. In September 2013, when Zubin Mehta was visiting the city, he inaugurated the logo for the 150 year anniversary celebration.
