Mangaluru: Mount Carmel School decennial year celebrations off to splendid start

Mangaluru, Jun 20: The story of Mount Carmel Central School is a story of a decade of students, parents, faculty, staff and alumni who believed in the Apostolic Carmel sisters and their ideals of empowering through education and extending their service to all, promoting holistic excellence. 

The audience which comprised of students, staff members and PTEC members witnessed a celebration of the nine years of service with an array of events and programmes organised on Tuesday,  June 20 in the school auditorium. A sense of fulfilment was in the air, the audience was enthusiastic and ecstatic, while the mood of the dignitaries who graced the occasion as well as the performers was upbeat.


June 2 in 2008, a new landmark in the history of the Apostolic Carmel Sisters of Karnataka Province where in the first CBSE school at Maryhill, Mangaluru, by the name Mount Carmel Central School came into existence with 136 students on roll from KG to Class V, who were driven by the zeal to bring out the best from these talented children, has come a long way since then. It has secured a place of pride in the hearts of the people in Mangaluru.

The esteemed guests Dr  Sr Olivia the former Provincial Superior and visionary of the school, Sr  Sylvian the founder principal, Sr Maria Jyothi the Joint Secretary, Sr  Carissima the administrator and Annantesh Prabhu, Vice President of the PTA were accorded a grand welcome by Sr  Melissa the Principal. This welcome was touched upon by a colourful rthymic dance by students.

To raise the hearts and minds of all in gratitude to the Almighty, for the blessings over the past 9 years, the students helped embark the spirit of all, though a prayer service.

To feel a part of the solemn moment of the officially inaugurated Decennial year, students reflected their joy through a dance performance.

The small and steady steps taken over the past 9 years that led to a sincere and strong foundation by the Apostolic Carmel Sisters through truth, beauty and goodness in the lives of every staff and student was symbolized through the lamp lighting ceremony by the representatives of the past nine glorious years of the school - Wilona and Zeenath of 2008 batch followed by other students to enlighten the milestones of each year. The Decennial year was inaugurated by lighting the centre Diya by the dignitaries on the dais.

Celebrating the inaugural, the tiny tots heightened their happiness with their charm and cheer through a celebrity dance. It was a treat for everyone who witnessed the programme and a befitting part of the celebration.

The investiture ceremony of the new school cabinet for the year 2017-18 of MCCS followed next. Principal Sr. Melissa administered the oath taking ceremony. The ministers took pledge to work for the welfare and uplift the school community.

The felicitation function followed recognising and awarding the winners of CPS Olympiad for the academic year 2016-17. Srs Sylvian and Maria Jyothi felicitated the achievers. Addressing the cabinet members Sr. Sylvian recalled the hardship faced in 2008 and motivated the cabinet to work for the betterment of the school.

What our young achiever Master Shreejithin did in skating, left all speechless, as he has already kick started this academic year 2017-18 with awards. And for his exceptional achievement both at the National and International level in Roller Skating he was felicitated along with his father at the school level by Dr  Sr Olivia.

Dr Sr  Olivia in administration as the Provincial superior while starting this school in 2008 gave the Decennial inaugural address through her words of encouragement and appreciation.

Sr  Snehal the Vice-Principal delivered the vote of thanks and Meghna Shenoy of Class X compeered the programme.
