Having spent a year, or maybe more, together and having created much cherished memories, the students of Standard X hosted their Farewell on the 29th of January 2014.
The previous day, on the 28th, students invited all the teachers and staff members of the school and spent their time decorating the hall, the school auditorium, where the much awaited program was to be held. The venue was decorated with hearts, as the theme was, "Valentine's day" the day love is shared.
The students of Std X, as a little token of affection, created a tribute for the teachers, which was shown to them on the day of the program. Teachers were extremely pleased with the video that was made and having started the program on this note, the performances were underway.
Students came together and put up dances, and songs which were much appreciated. The programmes were conducted in an informal note and the students were given the chance to speak on stage about their views and how they felt about the school.
The program started off with a prayer by Ms. Milly D'Souza, Headmistress. Fr. John Mannarathara, Principal, spoke on the occasion and Fr. Johny Mathew had an opportunity to speak too. Mr. Ravi JZ, Coordinator of the Senior Secondary, the class teachers of Std X, and Ms. Remy Alex, class teacher, spoke and expressed their views.
The program was wound up by 5.30 pm after which refreshments were supplied to the students and teachers present.
The photo session was held afterwards where students and teachers brought wonderful smiles as they bid goodbye and parted their own separate ways.
Farewell was a day to remember, a day when the students walked their paths in the hope that they would cross again.
