Hi from Tony McMahon – Class of 1967

Tony McMahonHi there,

My name is Rohmer Anthony McMahon, known to everyone as Tony. Well it’s good to know that some one remembers us still – ha ha ha ! just joking – who would forget the McMahon’s from Vasco. I think we all were quite notorious and known by almost everyone in Vasco. I studied in St. Therese’s High School from the year it started till my passing my SSC in 1967. I remember the names of my class mates, they were Francisco Correa, Edgar Lobo, Anthony Vaz, Joseph Henriques, Maria Almeida, Juliet Gonsalves, the Concessao sisters from Desterro, Bina Mital, Maria Corvo, our brightest student of the class – Kiran Ranjit Singh, Theresa Pereira, oh ho can’t remember the rest of the names, its been a real long time back.

I am married and settled in Mumbai at Mahim, and have two boys. My mother was a teacher and taught the KG Class from the inception of the school till she left to settle in the UK, she had taught in the school when it was housed in Appu Poi’s building and even in Mangor. She was the Head Guide Mistress (or whatever it is called – she is in one of the photographs along with Mrs. Dias – Francisco’s Mother). I remember the first nuns, Sr. Karen, Sr. Patricia (later mother), Sr. Christine, and her sister (can’t remember her name), Sr. Bernadine, Mother Micheal, Mother Columba, then our teachers, Ms. Myrna D’Souza, Ms. Lorna D’Souza (staying opp. the Tourist Hotel, Vasco), Ms. Rosamma, Ms. Thangamma, Ms. Tessie, Sir Chandi who taught us physics and chemistry, Sir Dias who was our Scout Master. (41 years ago I left the school and these are all the names I remember)

The teachings of our teachers and they way they imbibed everything into us in those days, the way they taught us to speak, the way they presented the lessons to us and made us understand everything, the help and guidance they gave us when we were down, the time they spent with us as our extended parents – for all that they gave us and for what we are today – MY SPECIAL THANKS TO THEM ALL AND GOD BLESS THEM – TEACHERS THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I’m looking forward to meeting all who I can on the 28th of December.
My email is RohmerMcMahon@gmail.com and I can be contacted for any help that you all require.
My Mobile No. 9320750184.

I would like to register for the celebrations and would like to be present with my wife and two sons.
By the way congrats and keep up the good work of bringing back those sweet memories.

Tony
