OUR HOLY SHRINE – MOTHER EARTH
We began the year 2015 with an awareness programme on 'Saving our Environment' and maintaining a balance in the eco-system.
The Jesuits, Fr. Lucas S.J. and Fr. Rayappan in collaboration with the Jesus and Mary sisters initiated this programme at the behest of our Pope Francis message, 'On Care for our Common Home.'
A seminar was organised for our students wherein they were made aware aout the plight of our environment and the care that should be taken to prevent further damage and destruction.
The Holy Eucharist was celebrated in the laps of Mother Earth and as Fr. Rayappan expressed in the 'Holy Basilica' created and gifted to us by our Almighty Father, God himself.
All our programmes conducted in our school centred around the theme of ecology. The major events, Sportsday and Annual Day depicted the ruin of nature and Mother Earth, its effects and impact on mankind and growing concerns about the dangers and harm to the ecology.
Students, under the able guidance of their teachers put up an excellent display during the Annual Day. A dance drama, titled, 'A Place in the Sun', elaborately brought out the harm caused by man and the implications on mankind. The effect of global warming, heavy downpours, scanty rain, floods, pollution have played havoc with nature. These scenes were portrayed in contrast with the beauty of God's creation.
The message conveyed to the audience during the Annual Day programme was loud and clear, 'Save Mother Earth'.
The 50th Annual Athletic Meet comprised of P.T. Displays and pyramids centred on peace, justice and the environment.
Our sisters, staff and students have contributed their best to spread awareness even through the Science exhibitions, the projects made to save and conserve energy and the tree plantation programme to nurture nature.
We shall continue with our efforts of doing our best in nurturing and saving the environment especially in our own surroundings.
May the beauty of God's marvellous creation, the earth continue to shower its manifold blessings on us and may we always respect and value this precious gift of God to mankind.
