28 Nov Spectacular Annual Day of Classes VII to XII
We celebrated our 12th Annual Day of classes VII to XII on 28th November 2019. The school ambience had a festive mood. Dr. A. M. Khan, Registrar (Evaluation) Mangalore University escorted by the Principal, members of the management and PTEC was welcomed in a traditional south Indian music “Chande”.
The school orchestra with its symphony gave a soulful feeling to those in the audience. The school choir invoked God’s blessings on all gathered through their soul stirring singing. The chief guest, parents and well-wishers were welcomed by a graceful dance. This was followed by convivial words of welcome by the Principal Sr. Melissa. She also appreciated the presence and participation of parents, in her words of welcome.
To mark the celebration of 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the students paid a fitting tribute through a musical skit highlighting the principles which he preached and practiced. Indeed, a legacy to every Indian. This year, being the sesquicentennial year of the Apostolic Carmel Congregation in India, an apt tribute was paid to the foundress Venerable Mother Veronica through the Cantata depicting a part of her life from far off France to India and the growth of the Apostolic Carmel in India.
The annual report highlighted the striving of the school towards its motto ‘Higher and Nobler’. The meritorious students of the previous year were felicitated by the chief Guest. The special prizes of the year were given by the Joint Secretary.
The chief guest Dr. A.M. Khan was happy and proud to be a part of the programme. He appreciated and applauded the Management and staff for providing holistic growth to the students through various activities apart from the academics. He urged the parents to inculcate in their wards the much needed culture of compassion, character building and respect for all religion.
The Joint Secretary Sr. Marie Lucy congratulated the students for their power pact performance and acknowledged the unstinted support of the staff. She assured the parents that the school will strive to meet the dreams for their wards. Teacher Sylvia proposed the vote of thanks.
As U.N has declared 2019 as the International Year of Indigenous Languages and we Indians being privileged to have 22 languages, there was a flow of melodious song in different languages. The skit “Mind your Language” placed the audience in their most relaxing mood. The senior secondary students soothed all present through their enchanting music and singing. “Navarasa” – the nine emotions of nature, if unveiled appropriately or inappropriately has its own repercussions not only on humans but also on Mother Earth. Awareness was created through a graceful dance ballet to save Mother Earth.
The programme was compeered by students Craig, Larissa, Vedant and Bhoomika. It ended with the singing of the school song by school choir.
