A Tribute To My School – Ameeta Rebelo Monteiro – Class of 1978

November 4th, 2008

Ameeta MonteiroHello!

Let me begin by congratulating the organizing committee and the Web Master, Clara for making this celebration a reality and for helping us, the ex-students of this prestigious school, re-connect old friendships.

This is so exciting…the pictures took me down memory lane and brought back wonderful memories of school days. Spotted lots of familiar faces and was pleasantly surprised that I could remember most of my classmates.

I was saddened to hear about Mrs Gupta’s passing. Still have a vivid picture of her gentle smile and kind spirit. Sir Menon, Mrs. Singh, Ms Zelia…were instrumental in me choosing the teaching profession.

Here are some of my most nostalgic/naughtiest memories at St Therese’s.

Going to school was definitely something I looked forward to every morning. Was it the awesome teachers, friends, or maybe even the vendors selling those samosas, Read the rest of this entry »

Ambadas SawardekarAn alliance of thousand and odd days is enough to be nostalgic, as you reminiscence those old days at my school, St. Therese’s High School, Vasco da Gama, Goa. Wow! And my school is celebrating its Golden Jubilee. What a feeling! Seasons, some tiring ones, have rolled to the dictate of the successful management of the institute, who left no stone unturned to mould the future progressive citizens of our great country. Today, Doctors, lawyers, engineers, bureaucrats, you name them; bow their heads to their alma mater.
