St. Mary's High School, Mount Abu
There's never been an official SMS Alumni Association. But get a bunch of Abuites together and we jabber non-stop about the great old times, whether it was climbing Plummy, nesting, raiding tuck boxes or ragging "Hospi Sas." If there are others listening, it's hard to resist a good yarn about bears in the dorm, or sneaking past the gates of Sophia.
So for all the irrepressible nostalgics out there, here's a meeting place in Cyberspace, a way to track down long lost classmates, and to keep in touch with our erstwhile home.
SMS alumni are invited to contribute content in any of the following categories:

A School of Many Anthems . . .
St. Mary's has had at least 4 anthems over the last 40 years. Why is it that so many staff have in their time been inspired to put their feelings for SMS into song?
1965–1971 (Tune: The Merry Ploughboy)Oh we're the boys of dear St. Mary's School In the hills of Rajasthan Where we work and play, are employed each day Till we end our allotted span It's a school we all are proud to own And our teachers join us too In the dim and distant years to come To our motto we'll be true
1971–1981 (Tune: original, written for SMS by Br. B. McCarthy)St. Mary's, our own dear school Our voices we join in praise of you Your glory, so widely known, we proudly own In you we learn to work and play You direct us how to pray God we serve, and then our land These the loves for which we stand So God keep us true to you And bless our school
1981–? (Tune: With Cat Like Tread, from Pirates of Penzance)Together we stand, St. Mary's loyal men Comrades all, right until the end Our work all done, we always do our best . . . Forever true, Forever true To God and country we shall be And always our dear school to thee Faithful we'll ever be To our Alma Mater, now and ever after So that all shall see That we stand for unity
