Introduction - Our Principals and Teachers
Eastleigh Secondary School has had a number of Principals over a period of time. The first one was Mr Kashmiri Lal. When he retired, Mr Uppal took over with brief intervening periods of Acting Principalship by Mr Sobti. Mr JES Jones became the Principal when Mr Uppal retired. When he was 'promoted' to head the Kenyatta Teacher Training College, Mr Briggs became the Head – who we have been unable to contact as yet but will continue to persevere. When Mr Briggs left, Mr AN Sharma (Narad) became the Principal before he retired to Chandigarh in India and later died in 2002. We have penned a brief profile of him too.

All five of them – Messrs K Lal, Uppal, Sobti, Jones and Sharma were different, passionate about Education and committed to the cause of ESS students. Unfortunately, they are no more. We have taken their profiles from previous ESS magazines. Relatives and other students have helped write sections from their experiences. We could not get a complete profile for Mr Jones and have attempted to put together a couple of paragraphs from our own experiences. We are sure you will have your own ones too.

May their souls rest in peace!
