Mangaluru, Aug 20, 2016: Students of 1989 BCom batch of St Aloysius College celebrated in full gusto with a heartfelt and nostalgic  reunion. Fifty-six out of the total 78 past students attended.   The reunion was organised with top notch systematic planning. The alumni attended the programme with their parents, spouses, children, teachers and non-teaching staff too.

More than 35 alumni flew down from Middle East and other parts of the world. Some company executives and professionals had come down just to attend this programme.  A few former teachers from other parts of the world as well as the country attended the programme. The programme began with a thanks giving mass at St Aloysius Chapel, celebrated by Rev Leo D’Souza SJ, principal of the college in 1989 and attended by other priests of the college. 

Later, the former students went to their class room --- Room No 308 --- for nearly half an hour, bringing back moments of yesteryears. Chief guests Rector Rev Dynisious Vaz SJ, Principal Rev Swebert D’Silva SJ and Registrar Dr A M Narahari, while appreciating the  cordial gestures of the former students coming back to their alma mater, expressed happiness that they are upholding the ideals of the college as Aloysians and are well settled in life.

A presentation was made about the progress of the college in recent years. An appeal was made to help the college which is expected soon to be a university.   Leslie Noronha, presently in Dubai, was instrumental in leading a very big team from the Middle East. SACAA president Dr Richard Gonsalves gave a brief account of its activities and requested all students to attend the Founder’s Day programme held on January 12, every year.

More than 25 former teachers, including Dr A M Narahari, the non-teaching staff along and the spouses of the staff, who have passed away, were felicitated. Three girls out of four from the first batch after Aloysius College became co-educational in 1986 shared their happiness.

Later, former student and renowned DJ in Dubai Anil Mascarenhas, popularly called DJ MAS, mesmerised the audience with a musical programme.
