St Joseph's School Darjeeling Annual Dinner 2019

 It was on the 10th of May on a sweltering evening when the merry band of North Pointers from St Josephs College ( School Dept) Darjeeling congregated together in the cool environs of The Saturday Club , Kolkata to spend a memorable occasion together among themselves , cutting across all barriers of seniority , age , caste and religion , a virtue synonymous with that rare true blue North Point ethos .

The highlight of the evening was to felicitate and honour their former teachers like Mr S.K Jha , Mrs Lekha Venkat and to also welcome the new North Point management like the Rector Fr K.L George S.J and Principal Fr Lawrence Manniar S.J . In attendance of the proceedings were Fr Felix Raj S.J , Vice Chancellor of St Xaviers University Rajarhat Campus , Kolkata.

One of the oldest North Pointers and driving force of the Alumni , the indomitable Mr Vashu Gulab , NP Class of 1949 , also made it to the meet all the way from Mumbai accompanied by his family . God Bless him.

Through out the felicitation ceremony and the revelry and camaraderie that followed , one feeling was evident…that the North Point spirit and motto “ Sursum Corda” ( Lift up your hearts) was firmly embedded in the DNA of every North Pointer present there .

The meet was very ably and thoroughly organized by the Kolkata Chapter lead by its dynamic president Mr Raj Bansal , Mr Brijraj Singh , Mr Gaurav Mathur and the rest of the team . A feature that has been prevalent through the last few decades.

Looking forward to this beautiful tradition being carried forward
