Childrens Hour Christmas Programme 2016

Christmas is a time for celebration, a time for giving, loving, sharing and spreading happiness, peace, joy and good cheer. That is exactly what the boys of Std IV presented through their children’s hour on 21st December, 2016.

The programme began with a Christmas prayer followed by a dance, wherein the boys expressed their love in the form of prayer and music in their lives. The story of birth of Jesus was putforth in the form of Tableau. Everyone loves to decorate a Christmas tree with pretty buntings. These buntings are Christmas symbols which are of great significance to the life of Jesus Christ. This act was presented by showing each symbol and telling the meaning of it. A few of our Stanislites who were trained by Tr. Karen for the Inter School Carol Singing Competition performed for our children’s hour. Another group of boys showcased their talents by playing different musical instruments like the keyboard, drums, violin and the guitar and were joined by a group of boys singing Christmas carols wherein they wished everyone Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Teacher Jennifer then addressed the gathering.

Thus, the fun-filled morning came to an end by giving the message of Christmas.

Children’s Day Celebration November 2016

As it is rightly said, “ Children are like a rainbow…….they add colour to our lives.” So we the teachers of the primary section unanimously decided that this year we would organize  a special programme for our children on the occasion of Children’s Day. The programme was held on the 18th of November 2016. It began by invoking God’s blessings on each of our students followed by the hymn ‘Just like a child’.

There were three items presented by the teachers. The skit ‘ The Three Little Pigs’ and two dances. Every teacher participated in the items. The boys thoroughly enjoyed each item and were very happy and excited to see their teachers perform for them.

The P.T.A. also put up a presentation on one of the children’s favourite cartoon shows ‘Motu Patlu’. They also organized a Magic Show and Clown Show which fascinated the boys.

To make the programme more interesting certain boys of each standard were called on stage and they were asked questions. Those who answered correctly were given a spot prize.

At the end of the programme all the teachers came up on stage and wished the children  ‘A Very Happy Children’s Day’. This was  followed by the vote of thanks given by the headmistress of the primary Mrs Jennifer Pereira. It was indeed an enjoyable morning both for the children as well as the teachers.
