Deep in the Earthís Crust I found you,
Wrapped with clusters of talents and skills within you,
You were the precious diamond, the world never knew,
As time passed, knowledge enlightened in you as you grew,
Sparkle brightly like sapphire blue,
These are our wishes and blessings to you.
The 46 out-going class X students of St. Francis of Assisi school were
overwhelmed with emotions of sorrow and unhappiness to depart from Alma Mater.
On February, 2nd 2019, a fabulous farewell was organised to these diamonds of
our school. Rev. Fr. Ajit Rodrigues OFM Cap., Japan Missionary, the chief guest,
Fr. RaviRajesh OFM Cap., Vice Principal of Trinity School, Udupi, the guest of
honour, Fr. Arun Lobo OFM Cap., the president of the Valedictory function along
with 46 outgoing students were set a red carpet welcome to the dais with the
school band . A warm welcome was highly extended to the children by blasting
paper crackers and presenting a memento with a flower as a mark of love and
salutations. Assisi choir invoked Lordís blessings upon the programme through
their devotional prayer song. Colourful and stunning performances from class,
Nursery to IX were beautifully staged by the children. Your unique abilities,
mastery over the English language, skilful ideas and knowledge may shoot out to
the world like thunder in the ears, were the words well described by Rev. Fr.
Ajit in his speech. Five Academic Excellence awards were presented to the
achievers of the 2017-2018 ICSE board examinations and out-standing performance
of Master Bharath Choudari for scoring 100 marks in Mathematics and Master Rahul
Balikai in Physical Education, specially honoured by school. Leadership was my
tag, by abiding it I fulfilled my responsibilities at its best, now itís time to
surrender my task to you to the rest. With this motto the lightened torch was
handed over by SPL to the DSPL of the school. A voyage which began always needs
to end, itís really hard to depart from friends and the embraced hands who
taught us to read, write and play. With sorrowful eyes and feelings of gratitude
class X students hymned in a choir with candles lit in their hands. At the end,
St. Francis of Assisi school staff greeted adieu to the 46 precious diamonds by
wishing them BETTER FUTURE AHEAD.
