Sophian Anthem


  • The bells of dear Sophia at break of grey dawn,

    From slumber deep wale us, ringing gaily on;

    They herald a new day of duty and love

    To praise our Great father in heaven above.
  • The bells of dear Sophia, Ohark; they are calling,

    The loved once, the loyal once, Sophians, one and all

    Come seek ye true wisdom, their echoes are pealing

    Ring on, ring on O Sophians hark to their sweet call.

hey g8 job really good to see pics of our school well plzz add some more pics
a msg for all newcommers N juniors

welcome to ST ANGELA SOPHIA SCHOOL

times i have not forgotten
of my schooldays which r like autum

the prayers we say in morning hours
n lunch we take between the class

not forgotten the faces when we get marks
slowly n slightly inside we laugh

teacher.s scolding is like ever in our heart but frndz sympathy is alwys a part

not forgotten the fates of our school
girlz presenting them best n cool

the teacher,s pet shows them over respect
which makes other feel somewhat neglect

the skirts r always above the knees
whic makes our teachers never please

treat makes us know the other girl as we never know who,s the birthday girl

time spend in school is never forgotten as it always been like autum

last but not the least my juniors plzz respect ur teachers n sisters becoz when ull leave frm this place u will be known by ur school only

ur school will be ur identification
n the person who dont give respect to their teachers dont get respect anywhere in the world

ur school has given u foundation to stand in this moving world
when ull leave the school than only ull get to know it

so enjoy life n ur school time

wishes to all of u

best of luck

PRABHA said...

Hi Akanksha,

I am an old student of this school. I too remember Sr. Theodra and Sr Janet. I did my 6th grade to 10th grade there. I have no records of my friends etc. I am just trying to see if I could get in touch with my best friend. Her name is Neelima Khandelwal. I passed on in 1979 or 1980 i.e my 10th grade. I moved out from there to mumbai and lost touch with everyone.


Good job Akanksha.. Keep it up!!..

Thanks dear...

Jaswant K Matharu said...

Hello all you sophians!

This is fantastic - I left sophia in 1968 - I' love to get in touch with anyone from that era.

Sister Janet was Head and I remember Sister Theodora, Mrs Joseph, Miss Bhalla, Mrs Vaish.

Oh my god! all those memories are flooding back. I moved to Delhi and from there I have been in England since 1973...wonder if any Sophians are in the U.K.?

I'd love to hear from anyone who might remember me and my sisters.
We were the furniture suppliers - OBHI Brothers at Mirza Ismail road.

My name is Jaswant ... if you do.. please get in touch at:

My warm best wishes and sweet memories to all who remember us!

Hey every body, My daughter Monika is a student of class 3 in St. Angela Sophia Jaipur. She used to be a bright student,bubbling with energy and new ideas,always ready to participate in school activities and used to perform and win almost all the school competitions.Since last one month she is under depression because of the new principal of primary section Sr Merillyn She behaves almost like a dictator and punished my innocent child for a petty mistake she did'nt even do.It was just that she was standing with the girl who committed the mistake. Now my child is not ready to participate in any of the school activity.I feel really bad for her. Sr Merillyn does'nt deserves to be the head of such a nobel institution. She does all to h arras the students and their parents too.I feel
being a Principal is the greatest of all services that can be rendered by men to Almighty God,and that is the education and training of children, inculcating discipline and moral values too.
