Introducing Citizenship Club

On 10th September, 2018, a new club known as the citizenship club was introduced to the students of standard 8. This club fosters the importance of understanding our roles as citizens of India. It invites students to voluntarily participate in civic services.

To understand the purpose of starting up this club Mr. Ryan D’mello, a Program Manager at ‘Desh Apnayen’ took our students through a session held in the Arupe Hall. This session enlightened the students on what true citizenship comprises of. With the help of an interesting powerpoint presentation and a meaningful video, the students were able to learn the need for such a club in our school and society.This club will therefore help our students understand their role as citizens of India and allow them to make rational decisions towards our society.

Let us Pledge to CARE FOR CREATION - Annual Prize Day

‘Each of us has a personal responsibility to care for creation, this precious gift which God has entrusted to us.’Pope Francis.

The Holy Father in his encyclical ‘Laudato si’ has called on all to care for our common home. At St. Stanislaus high school, we have taken this message to heart and hence chose “Care for Creation” as our theme for the year 2018-2019.

On 1st September 2018, the 155thAnnual Awards Day programme expressed this message beautifully in the form of dance and drama. The evening started off with a grand welcome to the chief guests –Dr. Shariq Nisar and Mrs. Rabia Khan, the parents of School Captain Master Ahmad Yasin; Mr.Kiran and Mrs. Hetal Nisar, the parents of Master Hemal Nisar who was the school topper at the S.S.C. Board Exam, March 2018

The creation story was conveyed in the form of a contemporary style dance depicting the elements air, water and land which brought to mind the purity and majesty of God’s wonderful gift to us.

Humanity’s total disregard and abuse of Mother Earth was portrayed in the form of a musicalwith a dialogue between the Earth, endangered species and Stanislite boys. The audience comprising of students, parents and teachers were enthralled with the beautiful singing, colourful costumes and excellent acting. The musical communicated the simple yet potent message of taking personal responsibility and stewardship of God’s creation. Through the examples of the SSCP outreach program it motivated and urged all those present to be part of the solution rather than the problem.

The next part of the programme was the much awaited felicitation of the previous academic year’s prize winners from classes 6 to 10. The chief guests awarded the prize winners their certificates with the audience applauding them and the parents looking on with great pride. Such a fantastic way to be recognised and appreciated for their earnest endeavours!

The evening ended with a vote of thanks by the Vice- Principal, Fr. Malcolm Nato and the school anthem sung with great pride and joy. The inspirational takeaway from the evening can be eloquently summed up in the following quote from the Bible:

“Treat the earth as if your life depends upon it.”

Genesis 2:15
