15 Feb Farewell Day – February 15, 2015
Farewell program was organised for senior students of XII and X as they exited the doors of Mount Carmel Central School- Mary Hill here for the last time on February 14, 2015. Rather, smiles and hugs abounded. The juniors of VIII and IX stds went out of their way to make the outgoing students feel special, by organizing a “Farewell Day” celebration.
Prior to the formal celebrations, there was a mass held at the sisters’ convent chapel celebrated by Fr. Santhosh Kamath of Fatima Retreat House.
The formal programme began with invoking God’s blessings by the members of School band, followed by the inauguration of the celebrations by lighting of the traditional lamp by Sr. Carissima A.C. – the Administrator, Sr. Melissa A.C. – the principal along with couple students and teachers. Sr. Melissa AC in her address to the senior students said, “There is no substitute for hard work-if you have to keep moving, if you need to attain success.
One junior student expressed his token of love for the seniors in his speech by quoting beautiful word of collien “these are not secrets to success these are the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failures. This farewell party is not to say good- bye but is a small celebration of beginning of your new journey of life.
“This is where the chapter ends, And new one now begins, Time has come for letting go, The hardest part is when you know; All of these years, When we were here Are ending, But we’ll always remember; We have had the time of our lives, And now the page is turned, The stories we will write, We have had the time of our lives, And we will not forget the faces left behind, It’s hard to walk away from the best of days; And we will not forget the faces left behind, But if it has to end, we are glad that we found friends, in the time of our lives; We say goodbye, we hold on tight, To these memories that never die, We say goodbye, we hold on tight, To these memories that never die”- song sung by the X std students at the Farewell Party.
