“The old order changeth yielding place to new and God fulfills himself in many ways
Lest one good custom should corrupt the world.”
As we usher in the summer break, we also usher in change in the Loyola Management. We Jesuits believe in regularly rediscovering and reinventing ourselves while simultaneously ensuring that Jesuit tradition and ethos continue to be preserved. The changes will ensure there is a fresh approach to running the institution while at the same time ensuring that the values and principles basic to Jesuit education are intact.
We bid adieu to our Rector Fr E A Augustine S.J. After having served Loyola for four years, he moves on to take complete charge of XITE Ghamaria. During the four years with us, Loyola has benefitted immensely by his rich experience, his passion and his love for this institution.
His place will be taken by Fr C L George S.J. who brings with him a vast ocean of knowledge and experience which he has gained at XLRI, Jamshedpur and XIM BBSR, where he served as the Dean Administration and Finance. He has served Loyola School as the Vice Principal during 1983 – 1984. He takes over as the Rector on 6th June 2013.
Fr Alex Mascarenhas S.J. who was the Treasurer, has been posted to New Delhi w.e.f. April 2013. An absolute professional in his job, he was an expert with numbers and injected professionalism into the Accounting System of the school. He will however be best remembered for the setting up of the School Maths Lab which he did in record time, with the able assistance of our students.
With effect from 10th June, the school shall have a new Principal Fr Sebastian Puthenpura S.J. Fr Sebastian is a well known name at Loyola School since he has already served the institution as the Vice-Principal. Fr Puthenpura is an able administrator who will take Loyola to new heights of success and glory.
As I bid adieu to you all, I take this opportunity to thank you for having been such a pillar of support during my tenure at Loyola. Your unconditional love and encouragement ensured that my tenure here was smooth. It has been an absolute delight heading this wonderful institution for six long years and I leave with many magnificent memories. I am sure you will continue to extend your cooperation to the next Principal and together you will take Loyola to greater glory.
Though I look forward to my new responsibility as the Director of eight De Nobili Schools in Dhanbad as well as the Principal of De Nobili Bhuli, I shall always cherish many fond memories of Loyola and shall miss my students and teachers immensely.
My best wishes to each and every one of you. Happy Holidays.
Fr. Victor F Misquith, S.J.
