January 2017 we begin another new innings











January 2017
December 2016 was a eventful month with the blog getting 8 posts. India recovers sluggishly after the 8 November Demonetization, passing away of Ms Jayalalithaa, chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Christopher Peacock and others.  With a new New Year, New Resolutions, we begin yet another inning with renewed Resilience.

What would be our scores this month? Do we see our missing bloggers coming back from Facebook, WhatsApp etc?

Mrs Samson with some visiting Students and Family


Another month . One Blogger, 6 comments. Can we buck the trend.
The last one month has seen some of our favourite folks moving to a better world.
Mrs. J. M. Samson passed away on 16th May 2016. She will be fondly remembered by the Stanes family. She served the School for 36 long years from 1952 to 1988. She was known for her discipline and commitment. She was a primary teacher and served the ICSE section for 5 years. Scores of Stanites had went to honour her at her funeral. 
Mr I J Mammen, who served the school from 1971 to 1989 passed away in Vellore on 03 June 2016. Mr Mammen, an enterprising person, managed the school office and was known for his ever helping attitude and bright smile. Many of us would remember for his soothing voice and loving nature. He will be fondly remembered by the Stanes family.
 Junes here, publishing our blog with new contemporary themes-lets spend more time on the blog.The Monsoon clouds are around, Kerala has started getting rains in abundance,  Bangalore has been treated to some unprecedented showers and development woes...Coonoor is not far behind but the dams are still to fill up.. ...Do we have more bloggers coming in or only the faithful five keeping the blog rolling?
