Std. 2 Childrens Hour Christmas Program

It was a beautiful morn on the 20th of December There was a frantic bustle in the hall upstairs; std. 2 teachers taking care of costumes, checking sound and lights and peons setting up chairs and props.

Our boys sat silently through the prayer service of Christmas petitions. The tableau followed which gave the kids a semblance of the actual Biblical event that is the reason for the season. However, it isn’t Christmas without a Christmas tree and so our boys recited ‘The Christmas Tree’ while standing in a tree formation complete with ornaments in keeping with the festivity.

Two of the std. 2 students took center stage and entertained with carols, while accompanying themselves on the guitar and keyboard respectively. As a reminder of the merriment at a Christmas Dance, our boys and ‘girls’ skipped and pranced to ‘Jingle Bell Rock’, a 1950’s classic. This set the tone for the entrance of the one and only fat and jolly fellow in the signature red suit: none other than Santa (our smaller version). Needless to say, he was the highlight of the show for the kids!

Our programme ended with the entire cast assembling on stage to wish our audience a Merry Christmas and a vote of thanks from our headmistress, Mrs. Jennifer Pereira. Our std. 2 teachers (Mary, Joemilla, Lisa and Malaika) were pleased that the programme went off smoothly without any glitches in spite of the time constraints.

Cheers to you, standard two!

English Elocution Competition

Our annual elocution competition was spread over two days, the 27th and the 28th of November, 2017. Our judges for the competition were teachers Milred and Dorris ( For standards 3 and 4) and teachers Calista, a teacher from Bombay Cambridge School, and Steffa, from our secondary section (For standards 1 and 2).

Teachers in charge (Teachers Lorraine, Michelle, Malaika and Perpetual) had a difficult job short listing  students for the finals. Across all grades we saw raw as well as honed talent shine through. It was indeed a pleasure  to encourage it as developing this skill has multiple benefits: boosts confidence, improves speech clarity, increases volume range, etc.

I can imagine how we set an even greater task before our judges to pick the best from the best. Going by the silence in the hall, the students were left spellbound by the performances, as were the teachers. From badly behaved sisters to  pigs who could think, the poems were well selected and entertaining; Roald Dahl and Ken Nesbitt poems being the common choice of our young performers.

The judges remarked at the excellence displayed. Our winners of the day received participation certificates and prizes. Other participants received participation certificates.

We hope that other children will be inspired and will give recitation a shot next year.

The students were given a lovely surprise as they entered the school premises to the sound of foot tapping music and a mini fair which thrilled them. Each class was allotted a time slot in which every child enjoyed the rides, games as well as jumped on their ever favourite Jumping Jack. They danced with their favourite cartoon characters Motu-Patlu and Bheem. To end their day they were treated with a yummy snack.

The campus was buzzing with excitement, joy and smiling faces of little Stanislites. It was a day filled with love from the teachers and parents to the little Stanislites.

Appreciation Day 2016-17

The annual prize distribution of the primary section went off with a bang on the 16th of September. Our programme began with a walk down memory lane, which brought  to mind how action packed the past year was and also set the tone for our little ones to invite our guests to ‘celebrate good times’.

Fr. Gerard addressed our parents and stressed the importance of a daily attitude of gratitude ; ‘thank you ‘ being one of the three keys or for our tech savvy boys, passwords!

The boys received their prizes very proudly from our chief guests, Fr. Gerard Rodricks S. J., Fr. Andrew Rodrigues S. J., Mrs. Lynette Dias , Sr. Arockia Anthony as well as our headmistress Mrs. Jennifer Pereira and our craft teacher Mrs. Chitra Thadani.

We were enthralled by the talent of Simon Cardoz, Rylan Enthiado and Mark D’Mello , who took center stage at such a tender age and entertained us with their performances from different competitions.

Ace productions which trains our boys of std. 3 in speech and drama also trained a few of our students with a mime and poetry recitation.

Our finale, the circus themed play, which took weeks of practice to be put together, did not disappoint. It focused on ‘harmony’, the theme of the year, and while being a delight to watch, gave a valuable lesson to our boys and parents. Many a deft hand went into the making of costumes, painting of faces, etc; our team of parents did a splendid job! A special mention must be made of our creative backbone: the one and only Darryl Loyola! I think everyone will agree with me when I say ‘there’s no dazzling without Darryl’!

The team of teachers in charge : Mrs. Priya Divecha, Mr. Arnold Lobo, Ms. Cursina Valles, Ms. Lalita Nirmal , Ms. Lisa Pereira and Ms. Malaika Rodrigues along with Mr. Sagar Parab , were happy that their efforts bore success.

Rekindling Patriotism

To spread the feeling of patriotism and to celebrate our 71st Independence day, a  programme was organized which was dedicated to our brave heroes who have laid down their lives  for us. We were fortunate to have Major General Christopher Emanuel Fernandes  as our chief guest for this programme. Students from different schools were also invited for this function.

The programme began with the  lighting of the lamp to  invoke Gods presence .It was followed by  the primary students who  dressed  as different freedom fighters of our country.They emphasized the important values of peace, love, equality and unity in our motherland. A poem titled ‘The Indian Soldier ’ was then recited by the students to help the students realize the courage and sacrifices that our Indian soldiers  endure. The students  truly inspired us to go and make a difference in the world  through their dance performance.         

Keeping the spirit of unity and harmony alive , a bhajan and a prayer dance was performed by the secondary students. To help bring in a patriotic fervor the inter school band competition winners  and our very own  Stanislites  performed a few patriotic songs and kept the audience entertained with their energetic performance. The girls of St Joseph’s Convent left the audience fascinated and awe-struck with their amazing dance performance on the song  Vande Mataram .

The main highlight  of the programme was a performance by  The 7th Sikh regiment pipe band which was headed by their  Conductor Company Havildar  Major Jaswinder Singh. This band plays essentially for the army, to motivate and encourage the armed forces in the time of war. Our students were also very fortunate to witness the Sikh band perform

The chief guest then addressed the gathering followed by a vote of thanks given by our principal Tr Anna.  As a mark of respect to our country the function was then concluded by the Sikh band performing the National Anthem along with a student representative from each school joining the band to sing our national anthem to honour our country.

71st Independence Day celebration at St. Stanislaus High School

15th August 2017, the occasion of our country’s 71st Independence Day was celebrated with patriotic zeal in our School.  We began with the tricolor being hoisted by our Chief Guest Bro. Conrad Fonseca, the singing of the National Anthem and reciting the  Pledge by the students and Staff.

A short and meaningful programme was conducted in the school hall thereafter.

It began with a Patriotic song and a rousing speech by Master Reuben D’souza.  A skit, based on the school’s theme for the year “Called to Serve”  highlighted the message that everyone is called to serve in some way or another.

A passionate speech by Master Yusuf  Zakaria was followed by a heart touching tribute to our soldiers of the Indian army which enkindled in all the students a sense of pride for all the armed forces protecting our Country.

Bro. Conrad then spoke about the true meaning of Independence and how we can be of service to our school and our nation by always being prepared – spiritually, morally and physically.

Our Std.X toppers who scored above 90% were felicitated.  A very helpful interactive session ensued where in these toppers and their parents were questioned on various aspects of their preparation for the SSC Exam.

The Vote of Thanks was delivered by the Principal, with a strong message to practice acceptance and tolerance and to shun violence, not only in school but also in the world.

The School Anthem was sung with great gusto and the programme ended with the hall resounding with the ‘Bharat mata ki Jai’.

This celebration concluded with a short fellowship between the teachers, the SSC toppers and their parents.
