The SSC farewell was held on the 18th of February 2017. The boys were welcomed to the undercroft with showers of flowers as they made their way to the venue of the farewell programme. The day’s programme began with a very meaningful prayer service conducted by the teachers. The ceremonial lamp was lit by a student representative from every class. The prayer service was followed by a message from Fr. Rector. He reminded the students of their first milestone – how they left the warmth and comfort of their homes and stepped into the unknown ‘school’. Fr. Rector concluded with a lovely closing thought – “Make God the power behind all your efforts”. The talk was followed by the blessing of the students and their hall tickets by Fr. Rector and Fr. Principal.

A small entertainment program followed. Teachers sang a song wishing the boys. The games, songs about the students and spot prizes brought the audience to their feet. Snacks and cold drinks were served. Master Parth Kapasi – the school captain – gave the vote of thanks.

The farewell program concluded with a beautiful message from Fr Principal –“Be a unique Boscoite. Go out into the world and become men who contribute to the society”.

Next was their turn to rock at The Jam session (something the boys were eagerly waiting for) and there was some frenetic dancing to some popular foot tapping music.
