The Dawn and Development of Biology Laboratory
At the time when I joined Loyola as the Class Teacher of Standard 3 B in 1954, Mr. Blaise Khare was teaching an optional subject, Health Science, and General Science for upper Standards 7, 8, & 9. I handled all subjects, except Hindi, for my Standard 3 B class. I moved up as the Class Teacher of the same class year by year in Standards 4 B, 5 B and 6 B! To improve my qualification, I took study leave in 1956 -57 for acquiring my B. Ed Degree from Andhra University. After my graduation, I took up my schedule again as the Class teacher of 6 B, 7 B, 8 B, and 9 B as the years rolled on!
Physics and Chemistry Laboratories were very well established under the matchless care of Rev. Fr. Simon Kirsch, S. J. The final year Senior Cambridge students were sent to St. Xavier’s School in Hazaribagh for writing their exams, since Loyola was not yet a center for it.
Greetings on the occasion of the spiritual and joyful festive season to one and all!
You have been kept abreast of the happenings in our school through my occasional ‘letter to the parents’ as well as through the local newspapers. The joy, enthusiasm and appreciation that you have shared with us on the occasion of the inauguration of our Fasy auditorium were a great source of encouragement to each one of us. The little ones in our Junior Section have a beautiful children’s park to play and enjoy themselves. Our students have been bringing laurels and accolades to our school by their stellar performances in various competitions in local, regional and national levels. Probably this is the first time that our school reached the national finals of the Frank Anthony Debate competition in both Junior and Senior Categories and won third and second prizes respectively. This year too Loyola has been ranked number one in the whole of Jharkhand, but we have miles to go before we wrest the same in the national level.
