Hi there this is a website for Paulites and Ex-Paulites.
So if you are a St. Paul's High School student do join this site.
St. Paul's High School is a Jesuit-run High School located in the Cantonment area in Belgaum, India. It was founded in 1856. It celebrated its 150th year in 2006. It is a boys' school and is recognized by the Government and managed by the Society Of Jesus.
The school has an outstanding tradition in sports; mainly football, hockey, cricket and athletics. The Father Eddie Memorial Football tournament for Senior Boys (Under 17) and the Indal Trophy (Under 15) are conducted every year on St. Pauls 'A' ground, while the Royceton Memorial Trophy (Under 14) is conducted on 'B' ground. The latter draws a big crowd with teams from Goa, Kolhapur, Bombay, Pune, Bangalore and other cities taking active part.
The school divides its students into four Houses namely Gold, Green, Blue and Red.Each house colour is depicted on the student's uniform,either as a badge or as a coloured shirt. Competition is fostered among the pupils of each house in sports and studies alike.
The school magazine is the Paulite. It was known as the St Paul's Annual initially.
The motto of the school is ‘Put on the armour of Light’, which means 'Be a Light to others, bring Light to the world around you by your words and above all, by your actions'.
The school was founded in 1856. Fr. Charmilliot, an Austrian Jesuit first stepped into the compound of St Paul's as the chaplain of Our Lady of Mount Carmel chapel, that existed on these premises. From that day the Jesuits never left these premises even though their nationality might have changed. First the school had Austrian and German Jesuits fathers. Then they were replaced by the Portuguese Jesuits. Now Indian Jesuits of the Goa Province run the school.From humble beginnings of 4 class rooms and 66 students the school has grown to over 2000 students. Though it was started primarily for the Catholics, it has opened its doors to students of all religions, castes, ethnic backgrounds and colour. Chances and opportunities to develop their talents and qualities are provided to all, whether rich or poor. Admissions are not decided on the basis of economic status or religion. At present scholarships and help are provided to those who are economically backward.
The school anthem is Cheer Boys Cheer
Cheer boys, cheer, cheer the Blue and Gold
Hail to thee O St. Paul ! (twice)
We thy loyal trusted band
We will ever be true
Light bearers and labourers
True and pure and steadfast
Chorus: Let's put on the armour light
Glory of St. Paul
Let's put on the armour light
Fight for God and Country
Alma Mater, our friend and guide
Stay in shade and sunshine (twice)
Lend us light and wisdom lore
Ne'er to fail or falter
Be life's journey perilous
Thou to us a beacon!
