08 Mar Women’s Day 2014
International Women’s Day 2014 was celebrated in the school on March 8 for both the juniors and seniors section in the school.
The students of Class IV B based their entire programme on the theme “Inspiring Change.” The programme began with a meaningful prayer service. A few students gave the significance of the day and how the International Women’s Day came into existence and how it is celebrated now in different countries. This was followed by a series of dances highlighting the role of a woman in her different stages of life. A skit on Women Empowerment was also enacted by the students. The students greeted their teachers with a rose and a card. Finally a meaningful message on Women Empowerment was delivered by the Principal Sr. Melissa A.C.
It was the privilege of Class I B to celebrate this day for the juniors. The programme commenced by invoking God’s blessings. Students showed their love towards their teachers by offering a rose each. A few children felt proud as they spoke a few words about the achievement by the great women personalities throughout the world like Mother Teresa, Kiran Bedi, Indira Gandhi, Aung- San- Suu Kyi and J.K. Rowling. Some of them also spoke of how the celebrations are carried out in different regions throughout the world. Children enacted a skit followed by a dance which conveyed the message that in olden days women were not treated equal to men and educating a girl child was a liability. But how in modern times the scenario has changed and it is worth educating a girl as she has contributed in all the spheres of life. And so we need to change our perspective of looking at a girl child. The programme concluded by a message from the administrator Sr. Carissima A.C.
Prior to the actual day of the celebration, Mrs. Patsy Lobo and team of Catholic Association of South Kanara (CASK) had conducted a half day’s symposium to our class IX students on March 6th, which included a number of activities like guest lecture, quiz, discussion and role plays.
