Teachers Day 2015

This year we began the Teacher’s Day celebrations of 4th September with a Eucharistic celebration. Bishop John Rodrigues was the main celebrant. The choir trained by Tr. Yvette and Mrs. Marisa Pereira, a parent, added to the festive spirit.

On 5th September the teachers were personally escorted to their classes by the respective monitors and parent volunteers. The class teacher and accompanying subject teacher were greeted with a card and chocolates. This was followed by an entertainment programme put up by the class boys.

The teachers were then transported to Willingdon Gymkhana for a party hosted by the PTA. They were treated to lively Hindi and English songs, good food, games prizes and surprises galore.

Light Waves Annual Prize Day 2015

The Annual Prize Day is one of the most eagerly awaited events is the school’s academic year  This year it was held on 29th August, 2015. As is customary we worked around the theme set by the UNO- Year of Light and Light-based Technology.

The Chief Guests for the evening were Mrs & Mr D’Mello parents of our ex school vice captain Jason D’Mello and Mrs & Mr Shah parents of our school SSC topper at the March 2015 Exams Ansh Shah.

The highlight of the evening was the ‘infortainment’ programme which comprised of dances, skit, videos, and the innovative use of light to create a shadow play and a specially composed song. This was conceived by our ex teacher Maria D’Souza who helped us bring it to fruition along with videos done by our ex student Aniruddh Kothari. This was not only entertaining but informative as it emphasized the contribution of light and light based technology which touches evey aspect of our lives and culminated with a social message to consider pledging one’s eyes after death.

We have made a conscious effort to do our bit to protect the environment, so the School Annual Report instead of being printed was projected.

Change being constant, this year we experimented with a different method of prize distribution as we had over 560 prize winners. This was met with approval from many parents as it went fast and wasn’t boring. There was a houseful till the end which was noted by the principal in her vote of thanks. The function ended with our school anthem. Congratulations to our stars of the show the prize winners who upheld the motto of our school ‘Born For Greater Things’
