Before the proceedings began for each section, Fr. Crispino asked the Rector, Fr. Godfrey D’Souza to speak to the representatives. Fr. Godfrey spelt out the duties of the PTA representatives and that they would need to liaison between the parents, teachers and management and bring suggestions and complaints to the respective bodies.
Fr. Godfrey highlighted the need that whatever we do, we need to keep the good of the child in mind so that changes benefit the child in his growth and maturity.

After briefly explaining what was expected of the PTA members, he then had a clipping on Parents as role models followed by a power point presentation on Parenting by Example. Parenting by Example was taken from the book by Dr. Phil McGraw ‘Family First’. He ended with another clipping that was meaningful and apt to the occasion and the topic.
Those chosen from the Secondary Section are:
Mr. A. Srinivas - President; Mr. Mario Pereira - Secretary & Mrs. Pricilla Viegas - Treasurer.
Those chosen from the Primary Section are:
Mr. Titus Menezes - President; Mrs. Liza Menezes – Secretary; & Mrs. Pricilla Viegas – Treasurer.
There was a group photograph of the various sections before we parted.
