26 Jan Republic Day Celebration – 2012
Republic Day was celebrated at Mount Carmel Central School on January 26, 2012. The students assembled in the open air grounds at 8.30 am. The day began with a prayer service followed by hoisting of the flag by Dr. Sr. Lydia A.C., former principal of St. Ann’s College of Education and Superior of St. Ann’s Convent, Mangalore.
Students of class VII came up with a short cultural programme and entertained the gathering. A message of patriotism was conveyed through their performance in the form of dance, song and skit.
The certificates and medals for the winners of various competitions of the year were distributed by Sr. Lydia after which she addressed the students. In her message she urged the students to cultivate true patriotic spirit towards the nation and to stay on and work in India and contribute their share for its development, instead of migrating to foreign countries after they complete their studies.
