Fr. Abundius D’souza had a vision,
And established a high school and that was his mission!
With the help of villagers and the leadership of Fr. Theodore,
Who carried sand bags on his back to build the institution,
He laid foundation to a high school in the year nineteen fifty-nine.
Denis D’silva was the first Headmaster from fifty-nine to sixty,
He was a man of discipline and dedication,
Students saw his passion for teaching every day,
The commitment you had shown for your profession,
You touched the students in countless ways.

Deju Uchill took over the task in the years fifty-nine to sixty-four,
With your untiring efforts and devotion,
The first batch of students appeared for the board paper,
This produced graduates who have achieved success and recognition.


B.A. Samak who took the charge from sixty-four to sixty-nine,
With his intelligence and approach in planting seeds,
His motivation and kindness assisted us to refine,
Helped the school to get its first rank and students succeed.


Fr. Rego who served from sixty-nine to seventy-six,
Set off expanding the school premises and leveled the playground,
Allowed the students to build up the bricks,
And experience wonders of physical exercise and the joy was profound.

Fr. Alexander Lobo took charge from seventy-six to eighty-three,
Set out to do something different than the rest,
Started pre-university college so students could get a degree,
For your work, you earned “Rajya Prashashti,” which made you the best,
You showed us how to be a strong advocate for what you believe,
And stood tall in everything you have achieved.

Fr. Marian Pinto who served for a year during eighty-four,
With your expertise, vigor and dedication,
You honored the 25th anniversary of the school we adore,
You put together a splendid silver jubilee celebration that was galore.

John Menezes took over the charge from eighty-four to 2003,
And he, the pilot, who led the course for the longest term,
With your wisdom and grace, taught us to affirm,
How to live and to do what’s right instead of wrong,
To guide us so that we can lead and learn how to be strong.

Fr. Paul Sequeira undertook the task from 2003 to the present
For all to steer by, honest, unafraid,
Introducing new courses, labs and modern facilities,
For generations the people will remember your accomplishments,
All the activities you’ve planned have brought us many possibilities,
A principal with principles, so true
Not an easy thing to do!
