Renovation of Kallarackal Hall


All the Dear Alumni of St. Berchmans
St. Berchmans College sends its best wishes to all its alumni.
As you are aware the year long ‘Navathy’ Celebrations of the college was inaugurated in a grand manner on 29th July 2011 by our distinguished alumnus Hon. Sri. Oomman Chandy, the Chief Minister of Kerala.
The curtain raiser to the Navathy Celebrations was the staging of Shakespeare’s ‘TEMPEST’, under the auspices of the SB Arts Club and the Dept. of English, in February 2011 on the open air stage in front of the Arts Block.
The year long Navathy Celebrations will feature International Seminars organised by the various Departments, Extra Mural Lecture by Nobel Laureate, Science Exhibition, Science Museum, Campus TV Channel, Media Seminar, Education Seminar, Arts Festival, Cultural events, Construction of a New Sports Complex, Stadium and Women’s Hostel.
This is also a time to maintain some of the old buildings on the Campus. The Arts Block, the oldest building on the campus which houses the Dept of English, Malayalam and Economics recently underwent extensive renovation work.
The Kallarackal Hall, the first auditorium, of the college evokes nostalgic memories to generations of students. We need to preserve and maintain it for the generations to come. This heritage building, like the iconic college tower which underwent massive maintenance, is in a state of urgent repair. The time has come to rebuild and thereby restore the glorious past of the Kallarackal Hall.
May I, on behalf of St. Berchmans College, earnestly solicit your generous contributions, be they big or small, towards this noble venture of resurrecting the glory of Kallarackal Hall.
Let us all join together and express our camaraderie, fraternity and loyalty to St. Berchmans, our Alma Mater.
Rev. Dr. Tomy Padinjareveettil
