05 Sep Celebration of Teachers’ Day 2021
Commemorating the birth of Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, our School celebrated Teachers’ day with a Thanksgiving Mass by Rev. Fr Rudolph Raj Pinto OCD, who in his homily propounded the significance of nature and nurture, emphasizing the importance of teachers in nurturing a student’s life.
A get-together of the Management, staff and a few PTEC members followed in the School Auditorium. Sr Melissa, the Principal in her welcome address cheerfully greeted and welcomed the Joint Secretary, Sr Maria Anita, the administrator Sr Carissima, the PTEC members, the teaching and the non-teaching faculty. She thoughtfully acknowledged and appreciated the MCCS staff for their joyful and dedicated service. A heartfelt yet entertaining online programme organized by the students of Grade X and XII was streamed, adding to the merriment of the occasion. Tapping to the music of Indian raga, the students performed a welcome dance and greeted the staff through a song. The significance of Teachers’ day was sketched, elaborating the contribution and achievements of Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. Adding humour and laughter to the programme, the play highlighted and represented the efforts of the teachers during the testing times of the pandemic.

The release of the School Magazine “Carmel Syndeo” by Sr Maria Anita, the Joint Secretary along with the Editorial Board, brought forth a nostalgic charm of two years gone by.

Teachers play an important role in this process. Sr Lidwyn, the vice principal, got the teachers on to their competitive best by conducting a few games.
