 Founders History

SETH KHURSHEDJI SHAPURJI SOPARIVALA
   

Seth Shapurji had only two sons, Seth Khurshedji and Seth Jamshedji. Seth Khurshedji was born on 12th April 1852 in Karachi. He inherited a loving temperament from his mother, Bai Virbaiji and the indomitable will of his father. From early times he took a keen interest in welfare of the school. He served as the Chairman of the School Board to the day of his death. His interest was so practical that at times when there was no Headmaster he acted as the Head. His interest in the welfare of the youths expressed itself in the fact that he was elected the Vice President of the YMZA and appointed the Trustee of the Hirjikaka Dar-e-Meher.

For twenty-one years after the death of his father Seth Khurshedji carried out the duties entrusted to him in an exemplary manner. He died on 4th September 1915, leaving behind him four sons and two daughters.

The resolution bemoaning his death ended with these words, "… During the term of Presidentship, nearly 21 years, he has rendered valuable service to school. It is difficult to fill up such a irreparable loss."

Two of his sons Seth Edulji and Seth Kawasji continued the traditions of the family, and have acted as Chairman of the School Board.
