Bidding a fond farewell to our SSC students

-Mrs. Elizabeth Soares

 

LIFE IS A JOURNEY NOT A DESTINATION – so said the words on the backdrop that aptly elucidated the send-off program for our SSC students. The SSC Farewell for the present batch 2017-2018 was held on 17th Feb 2018. The day began with the ceremonious welcome of the entourage comprising the Management and the students of the different divisions accompanied by their respective class teachers. The day was entrusted to God’s hands with the lighting of the diya, reflection and the prayer service. The Rector, Fr. Crispino D’Souza thereafter addressed the gathering with an inspiring and motivational talk. He shared his experience as a student and guided them with an advice to never lose one’s perspective, to enjoy the experience of preparing for the exam, and to pray. The talk was followed with an entertainment programme that had various awards and spot prizes, dance by the students of Std 9 and songs by the Primary and Secondary staff. The day continued with the Principal, Fr. Bernard Fernandes, blessing the hall tickets with a prayer for the students. Finally,the students were welcomed to celebrate the day with the Don Bosco Farewell March and the jam session that brought togetherness, camaraderie and cheer.

We wish our students success in their forthcoming SSC Board examinations and a bright future ahead!
