General to Indian Police Services and Income Tax Commissioner to the Indian Revenue Services, a Head to Rajasthan State Mines and Minerals Ltd. and an industrialist (Wolkem India Ltd.) to the Indian Nation.
“The occasion of the Reunion of St. Paul’s 1967 batch students brought peers together to seek blessings of each other, the teachers and the Principal of St. Paul’s School once again to lead an ethical life. Ethics and self discipline, we imbibed in the school from our great teachers, have been pillars of strength,” said one of the alumni.
The Manager of Udaipur Diocese – Rev. Fr. Marcel Dodiyar and The Principal Rev. Fr. George V.J. welcomed the students, alongside their spouses and felicitated them with garlands and souvenirs. Each Ex-Paulian addressed the students and expressed heart-filled gratitude to the school, teachers and Late Rev. Fr. Avito Coutinho, who was their Principal, during their student life.
