Rashmi Sinha (1983), said the ice cream bars she used to buy for 50 paisa after the school is the first memory that pops in her mind as soon as she is reminded of the school. “Co-curricular activities like the SUPW classes where I learnt sewing is something I use even today,” she added.

Every time Mona Pant Tolani missed her school she ended up singing the school song ‘Martinear Martinear sing a little louder, Martinear took my heart away and loves you so dear’. “I still remember how we used to study near the washrooms for the exams after the light in the rooms went off,” she said. Hitesh Keswani (2006), developed a taste for music after being influenced by teachers Roy Robinson and Alister Freese. “I was introduced to disc jockeying by Robinson and later I earned enough money to pay my college fee with that,” he said.
