Fr Philip Thayil, SJ.

The tenure of Fr Philip Thayil, SJ as the Principal. The major infrastructure development of this period is the construction of the Southern wing of the ICSE block at a cost of Rs. 29 Lakhs in 1993 and the addition of a football court and the purchase of a new bus and the fencing of the school grounds. On the academic front, he initiated tentative computer training shortly after his assumption of office and later introduced the ISC course, in 1993, and maintained the tradition of 100% pass and about 90% Distinction in all streams.
Loyola’s position among the schools in India during this period is clear from the fact that in 1989 two students distinguished themselves in the ICSE exam by securing the IInd and IVth Rank, respectively— a feat repeated by R. Anand who was the national second in the ISC exam of 1994. Quiz was another field where the school made an indelible mark, bringing home more than 35 trophies during this period. One of the most prominent visitors of this period was Rev. Fr Peter-Hans Kolvenback (Jesuit Superior General) in 1990.
