New Auditorium: Groundbreaking Ceremony
Loyola School has never stayed back in promoting new avenues for the all round development of its students. An important feature of the school’s facilities is the Fasy Auditorium. The auditorium, named after one of the founders of the school, Fr. Carrol Fasy, has seen generations of Loyoleans take centre stage and prove their mettle. The auditorium, a legend in itself has been home to an array of events showcasing the best talents from not only Loyola, but also the country. To keep up with the increasing demands for conducting large scale events, the idea of a new and larger auditorium was conceived.
