Christmas Celebrations

The Grinch had this epiphany in the famous children’s story written by Dr Seuss in 1957 and the boys at St. Stanislaus High School experienced the same on 22nd December 2018 at the Christmas programme for the secondary section. The theme for the programme was ‘Jesus – The perfect gift.’

It began with the exuberant singing of Christmas carols that brought alive the joy and wonder of Christ’s birth. Music, they say, is a powerful form of worship and the school choir helped the students to pay homage to the Christ child with their exultant voices and glorious music.

The Christmas skit this year involved some time travel as the students were taken back to the very first Christmas. There, they were charmed on encountering the holy family and realised that the first and most perfect gift, given to us by God was, Jesus Christ. The boys were presented with the astonishing but viable idea of ‘being’ the gift this Christmas season rather than ‘buying’ one.

The programme was filled with unexpected and unforeseen events as the Christmas decoration came alive and began dancing! The adorable reindeers, angels, snowmen and Santa Clauses enchanted the audience of boys and teachers alike. The students were further delighted when Principal Anna gave out prizes to the best dressed boys in the audience. More awards followed for the Stan Art Project poster competition winners whose posters were chosen for the school wall. The teachers weren’t excluded either! The four winners of the Inter-school essay writing competition for teachers were awarded certificates and cheered wholeheartedly by the students. Fr. Malcolm reinforced and emphasised the true meaning of Christmas in his speech to the boys. The students left with sweets and hearts filled with the magic of Christmas.  It’s rightly said, that it is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air and on 22nd December 2018, Christmas was definitely in the air at St. Stanislaus high School.

     

    ‘What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.’

                            Dr. Seuss. (How the Grinch Stole Christmas!)

Inter House Elocution Competition

Proper training in speech and drama and a lot of conviction are essential during any elocution competition. An elocution competition at school level gives students an opportunity to combat one of the biggest fear factors i.e. stage fright. It also allows the competitors to connect with the audience and to understand the concepts of Articulation and Voice Modulation.

The Inter House School Elocution Competition for the year 2018 – 19 was held on 22nd September 2018, in our school hall. The hall was packed with our school boys who cheered as the contestants entered the hall and took their seats. There was pin drop silence. The judges were introduced and a short brief about the rules of the competition was announced. There were 12 contestants in all.

Every single contestant performed well and the topics ranged from comedy to tragedy from current topics to environmental issues to speeches. The audience cheered the contestants on. The level of elocution was not surprisingly very high which made the job of the judges all the more difficult.

During her speech, one of the judges had profound praise for the standard of competition and selection of pieces and admitted that there was little difference between the winners and the others.

Alas! It was time for the results hearts were beating faster Joshua Vaz, Joshua Sequeira and Jayden D’mello came 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively. Overall the ‘Loyola House’ took the 1st place in the competition in keeping with their motto ‘Ideals in action’.

Principal Mrs. Anna Correa gave the vote of thanks. Everyone left the hall, having had a good time.

Children's Day and Kostka House Feast celebrations

Every happy memory created for a child is another treasure of a lifetime.

                                                                                                          - Donna Marie.

Our aim this year for Children’s day was to ensure a treasure trove of joy, laughter and fun for our students. As the feast of our school patron saint, St. Stanislaus Kostka (13th November) and Children’s Day (14th November) coincided with the Diwali vacations; the festivities were delayed but combined and celebrated in a grand manner.

It all began with a surprise arranged for the students from the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (formerly known as the Prince of Wales museum). The museum paid a visit to our school on 26th and 27th November 2018 through their Museum on Wheels initiative – a bus with travelling exhibitions on different themes. The students were fascinated by the exhibition within the bus and enlightened on the topic “History of Indian Money” with an audio – visual presentation, the dioramas, coins, coin replicas, banking documents and other artefacts related to currency from the 7th-6th century BC. They also had great fun while getting hands-on experience in “minting coins” which they could keep as souvenirs of this special visit.

On 30th November 2018, the feast of St. Stanislaus Kostka and Children’s Day was celebrated beginning with a mass at 9.15am in St. Peter’s Church followed by a tasty snack and drink arranged for the students. Entertainment for the day was set up on the school grounds and began with a fashion show staged by the teachers followed by a group dance competition judged by our very own ex-Stanislites Kunal Jessani and Melroy Pereira who pursued their passion for dance and made it a successful career choice. If the audience reaction was anything to go by, the programme was a super hit! The boys had the option of indulging in their favourite treats like chaat, Chinese bhel and ice lollies by purchasing coupons. Our ex-Stanislite Kunal got the boys rocking with his Zumba dance moves as the DJ continued playing popular chartbusters. The school’s German exchange students and their teachers were also present and introduced themselves to the boys. Principal Anna expressed her appreciation for the two committees and the P.T.A who had organised this fun-filled and memorable day for the children. The boys continued to enjoy themselves till the celebration ended at 1pm and then headed home with smiles on their faces and precious memories of a day dedicated to their enjoyment.

 They say, “A child has a special way of adding joy to every day”. This vibrant celebration was our way of appreciating and reciprocating the joy our students bring to our lives daily.
