Mangaluru, Dec 23: There was something unique in the atmosphere on Monday December 23 - The Kindergarten Day at Mount Carmel Central School.
The guests of honour, doctor couple Anoop Joseph and Sowmya Joseph were ushered in by a Poornakumbha welcome along with joint secretary, Sr Marie Lucy, administrator Sr Carissima, principal Sr Melissa and PTA vice-president, Nisha Castelino.
The programme commenced by praising God for His blessings of love and faithfulness which was led by the Nursery students. Another batch of Nursery kids gave a joyous dance of welcome.
Sr Melissa along with her words of welcome gave the greetings of hope, joy and peace to the people of goodwill who made the audience. It was amazing to watch the rhythm and synchrony coupled with the message like Swacch Bharath, Protect wildlife presented by LKG children through music and movement. It was an eye-opener to know the lifecycle of a butterfly performed by UKG students, as well as the story ‘The Fox and the Crane’, presented creatively in dance and song.
The chief guest, Dr Anoop Joseph in his message appreciated the power-packed performance of the little ones, acknowledged the efforts of the staff and urged the parents to inculcate values, spend quality time with their children and to cultivate the habit of reading at the earliest age. Teacher Neeta proposed the vote of thanks.
The Christmas play 'Little Angel' truly transported the audience to the city of Bethlehem and the message of Christmas ‘Giving love is how you get wings’ sank into the hearts of everybody present at the programme. Santa and his entourage of carol singers danced and lifted high the spirit of the festival of Christmas, wishing everyone A Happy Christmas and a Prosperous 2020.
