Mr. Henry  Roche  had  his  primary education at Moodahadu Primary School ,  Pandeshwar,  Sastan. He joined National High School , Barkur for continuation of his secondary education and got his . B. A.degree from Lingaraj University , Belgaum . After  completing  his  education he selected teaching as his  profession  but  could  not continue for more time, as he jumped to  business  at an early  age of 30 years, i.e. in the year 1972 itself.   As a successful transporter he earned name and fame in this line and  helped  many  to  earn  their daily bread. His contacts, leadership qualities, helping nature were mainly accountable for his success.

Apart from  business  he  involved himself in many social service  activities.  He  is  the  PRESIDENT  of  St. Peter's Association, Barkur  (Mumbai).  In his leadership the group is marching ahead and instrumental in uniting  Barkurians residing in Mumbai and is  helping in many ways to students studying in various schools of Barkur. This year they have donated uniforms to the students of  Mary knoll  Higher   Primary  School , Barkur (from std. 3  to std. 7). St.  Peter's  Association has  also sponsored an English teacher  to  the school.  The  people  of Barkur are ever greatful to the Association.
