Christmas-The Spirit of Giving
Everytime we love, everytime we give, its Christmas! Christmas season comes along once and the spirit of the festivities remind us again of sharing, caring and giving freely. Adding to the colours of Christmas, on December 18, 2018 the boys of Std 1 showcased their abounding and varied talents on the Christmas themed Cultural Day held in DB Bianchi Hall.
The show began with a warm welcome to the parents and the young comperes invited them to spread the magic of Christmas around with their love and presence in our midst. Father Crispino D’souza our rector, Father Bernard Fernandes our principal, Father Roy Noronha our vice principal, Mrs.Griselda Fernandes our head Teacher and Ms. Shobha our KG. supervisor were welcomed by the boys of ID to the tune of ‘Snow is falling’ and meaningfully composed lyrics.
The little angels of class IB led the congregation into prayer with song and dance praising God for a wonderful year. This was followed by the charming moves and shakes of the boys of Std IC. Their performance was mesmerizing and rocking.
Addressing the gathering, Fr. Rector said that he was thrilled as Santa got them in a sledge for the programme and was glad to see the parents all dressed in red which symbolizes love spreading the joy and spirit of Christmas.
The little performers of Std ID dramatized the theme on giving. Their message for all was that we need to change from ‘what will I get to what will I give’. Boys of Std IA reverently enacted the traditional nativity scene.
Father Bernard Fernandes our principal, in his speech was effusive in his praise for the organisers-staff together with parents-and the children for a well orchestrated and heartwarming Christmas program.
“The first gift of Christmas was a sacred gift. Gift of love and life, peace and hope given by God to his children.” says the students of Std 1. This beautiful gift came alive at their cultural day! The program ended with a thank you song from grateful hearts of the little one’s.
