Today Wednesday the 16th June 2010 the Primary school had their first Assembly with the students from the I standard to the IV standards. The children were well behaved and sat in perfect silence. The assembly began with the Vande Mataram, the National Anthem and the pledge.

and Fr. Administrator, Fr. Edwin Colaco making an entrance

The little compere, then took us through the programme with a recitation of a poem by a group of boys who recited a stanza each of 'All things bright and beautiful.' A poem was later recited by one of the boys to welcome the group for the new academic year.

The theme for the assembly was 'Care For Creation.' This is the theme taken up for the year and promoted by Pope Benedict XVI. As a school we have taken this theme and will see that it runs through the entire programme of the school at the assemblies.

Every bird every tree....sung by the chorus in keeping with the theme

The boys then sang ' Every bird every tree, helps me know helps me see...' in keeping with the theme.
Fr. Godfrey D'Souza the Rector was then invited up to say a few words to the assembly. He introduced Fr. Edwin Colaco, the new administrator to the boys and he also spoke of Bro. Roshan Gonsalves and said that Bro. Roshan was also new to the salesian community and the institution.

Fr. Rector spoke in keeping with the theme and told the assembly that God gave us a beautiful creation and we need to take care of the same. When we do not take care of the environment we are in fact destroying ourselves little by little. Hence it is important to take care of our surroundings. He also insisted that we need to do our little part in keeping our home, school and its surroundings clean and green.

Fr. Crispino the Principal gave a few instructions to the boys before we ended with the school anthem.
