Member of British Empire (M.B.E.)
Miss Iris Cynthia Philomene Auer came to India after she retired from
the Principalship of her school in England. She founded All Saints'
School in 1980. The acclaim that her School achieved is evident in the
growth from seven pupils in July 1980 to the present numerical
strength of over 2,500 pupils. Education and All Saints' was for Miss
Auer not just a learning process or an institution but a mission where
both teachers and students strove for academic excellence, and even
more importantly, for the vibrant lessons of humanity, service, love
and worship. A postgraduate in Psychology and with numerous degrees in
Music. Miss Auer was a weaver of magic through her poetry, music,
drama, dance, art and infinite other accomplishments of which she was
both an exponent and a paragon, she entered into the soul of culture and the hearts of children. A deeply religious person, Miss
Auer worshipped the Godhead as a true humanitarian. " It is in giving
that we receive" was her favorite dictum and a mission statement for
All Saints'. Education, Miss Auer advocated, is not only incomplete
but meaningless without the active awareness, expression and display
of cultural values and social responsibilities.
It was an occasion of great pride for the students, staff, numerous
friends and well-wishers and for Bhopal, when Miss Auer's capabilities
as an educationalist and administrator both in precept and example
were recognized in the award of Member of the British Empire
accredited to her in the Queen of England's Birthday Honours List in
1989. Her Royal Highness, Princess Alexandra of Kent presented the
award to Miss Auer in October of that year and a gala civic reception
was accorded to Miss Auer after the ceremony.
