    The Third Term at St. John's was no exception; it too wasjam-packed with numerous events. The 190th anniversary which the College celebrated on the 4th of May 2013, culminated in a grand final celebration on 7th December 2013. The highlight of this function was the ''Happy Birthday Dear Old Boys'' Birthday Party, a special event organized for Old Boys celebrating their 50th, 60th and 70th Birthdays this year. Those who were over 70 years too were invited. Old boys who were born in 1963, 1953, 1943 or before celebrated their birthdays with the 190th Birthday of their Alma Mater. It was the College's turn to make the Old Boys, who had been, have been and will be a 'Guardian Angel' of St. John's, smile. It was the College's little way of saying a BIG THANK YOU to the Old Boys for being the backbone behind all its achievements.
