Sympathy and selflessness

Lt Col George K Poonjatt

Father More was indeed an institution in himself. He steered Campion in a manner that probably no one else could do!! He was strict in the conventional sense, but was endowed with an enormous quantity of sympathy and selflessness.

I have seen myself during my 4th grade at Campion in 1970, the dear reverend Father cleaning the school lavatories himself. He lent an air of glamour and large dollops of sophistication to the school, in as so much that the local populace were envious of every single Campionite in Bhopal.

Thanks to his farsightedness, Campion was the only institution that boasted of a full fledged Scouts and NCC troop!! No wonder, he was the first Air Scout of India!! Many do not know this fact.

Thank you Father, for giving us the right direction and the right thought during our initial schooling days!! We still cherish the same.
