- Mrs. MILDRED GRANT
January of this year closed with the assassination of India’s beloved disciple of peace Mahatma Gandhi; this was n unparalleled state of national mourning and taking its part in the sad obsequies Campion School hoisted the flag half-mast.
A new member of the staff in January was Miss Y Carvalho for standard IV and later Mr. Norris to take over standard V. The school bid sad adieu to Miss Palin in February and Miss M Labouchardiere in April. A stirring event amid-terms was joyous settling of Campion into its Wellesley House premises. And even if it was to have only the ground floor as a taking off; well all great rivers from little streams arise.
On July 12th a happy house warming took place. His Lordship assisted by Re. Fr. Angelo officiated. Among the guest were Fr. Superior the Principals of St Xavier’s College and St. Mary’s High School and Fr. Domenech. On August 20th timely aborted fire took place in the precincts of Campion School at 2.a.m. due to a short circuit in the main fuse under the stir way. With this summary on it Rev. Monsig Dyer’s incidental passing by synchronizing so providentially with the flash of the first sparks; and Fr. Savall’s fatidic talk on this matter the eve before seemed almost the setting of a vigil.
All these put together could have provided Robert Hugh Benon with enough material for another best seller. Late in October the school enjoyed a lovely picnic to Elephanta. In November arrangements were made to use the Municipal Gardens for P.T. The P.T. instructor was Mr. P R Gaikwad. December ‘s sports and prize distribution had a neighboring setting viz. the Cooperage and Mr. Kanga Director of Industries presided, while Mrs. Kanga gave away the prizes. Wedding guests on December 5th assisted at the nuptials of Miss J Labouchardiere to Mr. de Gama
