TAKE YOUR CANDLE, GO LIGHT THE WORLD!
-by Ms. Jansi Dharamraj
“Let your light shine before men!”. Matthew 5:16
The students of class 6A presented their class assembly on 7th August, 2018, at 9.15am in the gym area of the school. The students of class 5 and 6,their respective class teachers, and Father Bernard Fernandes, the Principal, gathered for the programme. The theme of the assembly was, ‘Take Your Candle, Go Light the World!’
The assembly began with the National anthem followed by the morning prayer and pledge. Miss Jansi, the class teacher of standard 6A, led the assembly into a meaningful meditation. The students of the class presented a skit which brought out a powerful message on anti-bullying and how our neighbour becomes our responsibility. It also showed practical ways to help others around us and make their lives beautiful. The song ‘There is a candle in every soul…’ was sung by the students with a symbolic holding of candles in their hands. The lyrics of the song had a message for everyone – that we have the power within us to light the world around us in a unique way.
Father Bernard, appreciated the class 6A along with the class teacher, “Well-prepared assembly, well thought which has brought out a deep message.” A student from class 6D said, “The meditation by Ms. Jansi calmed me and it was incredibly presented.” “I was in need of some encouragement. The meditation and the song soothed me,” said Ms. Angel with a touch of emotion.
