Media Release

Mangaluru, Dec 2: The 11th annual day of classes IV to VI of Mount Carmel Central School was held on December 1, Saturday evening in the school auditorium.

Inspector of Police (Kavoor) K R Naik, graced the occasion as chief guest of the evening.

The sweet voices of six little comperes Agastya, Gabrielle, Ciel, Tanisha, Samarth and Anas echoed across the auditorium, announcing event after event in the form of witty, informative and sometimes philosophical dialogues.

The programme began with an invocation to God for his blessings and guidance, followed by a prayer dance. 'Swagatham, Tavo Swagatham, Shubha Swagatham', a melodious welcome song, warmed every heart in the auditorium. Sr Melissa, the principal formally welcomed the gathering.

A scintillating rendition of national and international folk dances captured the audience as an array of bright colours to changing tunes whizzed before their eyes.

On the occasion of the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the students paid tribute to Gandhiji by enacting a play depicting his values and principles and how he drew great inspiration from the Sermon on the Mount and the beatitudes.

The annual report was highlighted through a PowerPoint Presentation, after which meritorious students were honoured for their outstanding performances in the field of academics.

The chief guest, K R Naik, gave a very pertinent message, encouraging the students and praising the institution for exposing the students to various arts besides academics. He began by stating that the standard of the school was clearly reflected in the perfection with which the programmes were carried out.

“I was reminded of my school days when things were much harder, but nowadays students have every facility to perform well and excel. Today’s schools help students to achieve their aims; they help in the all-round development of the child,” he said.

He also spoke about the ill-effects of modern gadgets such as mobiles, and internet, as well as the growing drug addictions among the youth, particularly ganja. Among those addicted are children of well-known white-collared professionals, who have tested positive for drugs contrary to the parent’s protests that their children are innocent. He requested parents to be very careful and alert and keep a close check on the children. He appealed the cooperation of all parents with the police to help save the children and give them a good future. “The increasing stress of today’s world is pushing children into these bad habits. I appeal to the educational institutions to reduce the stress on the students, which would greatly help in the proper growth and development of all students and ensure a better and brighter future for
the students and in turn build a great nation,” he added.

A lively group song brought smiles and set feet tapping, after which came the English skit – 'The Awful Eight', which imparted an insight into the destruction of the planet caused by man’s greed. A nature dance, unfolding the five elements of nature – earth, water, fire, air and space followed as a fitting sequel to the English skit and enthralled the audience with its grace and beauty, whilst driving in the message of “Save Earth, live and let live”, as per the clarion call given by Pope Francis in “Laudato Si - On Care for Our Common Home.”

The singing of the national anthem brought the 11th annual day celebration of classes IV to VI to an end, as the comperes thanked the audience and bid them adieu.
