The edifice of St. Stephen's School stands as a testimonial to the awe aspiring vision of a man and the courage to see it realized. With the efforts of Mr. Harold Carver and some other reputed educationists, the dream of the school began to take shape from three bungalows and culminated in a magnificent building that bring delightful memory to all those who have had the opportunity of studying there. TOSS is a continuation of the same vision and dreams, to build on the foundation laid, a network of alumni taught the same values.
In its five years of existence, TOSS has already built a network of ex-Stephenian's - the ones settled and successful offering a helping hand to the ones struggling or taking their first few steps on the work front.
