HISTORICAL BACKGROUND >> The Years from May 1973-1974


There was a state of emergency and drastic measures had to be adopted. Immediately after Mr. LaValette’s resignation in April 1973 was accepted, the Governing body appointed Mr. S. Putty as acting Principal. A man of experience, he took up the challenge courageously. A new face for the staff and students his appointment as acting Principal was not accepted very eagerly. Yet he put to rest all misgivings and proved himself capable of handling the prevailing situation. Within two months he was confirmed as Principal of B. W. B. S. His tenure was not an easy one.
In every way the school had been adversely affected; a number of withdrawals had lowered the total strength of the school; fresh appointments to the faculty had to be made. The burden fell on the teachers to make up for the lost time. Adjustments were made in the syllabus to enable the students to cope with the subjects and the examinations. Care was taken to ensure that basic and better facilities were made available especially for the boys residing in the hostel. On the top floor of the main school building a bathroom was constructed. Improvements and adjustments were made in the kitchen as well. And all rounded effort was made to restore normalcy in the school.

The recuperative phase is never an easy one, the pressure of work and the responsibility began to tell on the health of Principal. Aware that his ill health would hamper his work he choose to resign. Short through his tenure was, his contribution to the school was no less significant. At a time when the school had been shaken to its very foundations Mr. Putty’s fortitude saved and stabilized it.
