Mangaluru, Dec 24 : Christmas is for joy, for giving and sharing, for laughter, for coming together with family and friends, for tinsel and brightly decorated packages.

It was surely a Christmas to remember at St. Agnes CBSE School. The essence of Christmas came alive on 19th December 2020, when the students and teachers got together and shared the merriment amid the Pandemic. The programme began by invoking God's blessings by the students through a virtual prayer service. Christmas is something more than gifts, lights and holiday spirit. Students rediscovered the true meaning of Christmas by explaining the meaning of the Christmas symbols like the babe in the manager, Mistletoe, angel, candle, bell, wreath, gift with a bow and the meaning of red and green colour . Singing Carols at Christmas time is a popular activity to bring the families and friends together. The students virtually sang melodious Christmas carols and danced beautifully to wish one another . Several online competitions were conducted for the students . Grade I and Grade II students dressed like little angels and Christmas tree. Grade III students prepared a Snowman, Grade IV students had to prepare a Christmas bell and Grade V Santa Claus Card. Grade VI and VII students prepared a Christmas Wreath and Star. The higher Class students of Grade VIII, IX and X had participated in making a Christmas Card , Wreath and Star making respectively.

Not only did our students celebrate the birth of our Saviour, The Principal and the staff too made the event a grand success.

The significance of the festival was explained by the teachers through the Christmas story. Teachers Nayana and Shanthi compered the programme. The presence of the tableau and the carols made the festivities even more magical. The celebration took place in the open air in the natural surrounding of the School. Leaving no stone unturned to sprinkle the magic of love, the trees and the vegetable garden of the school was decorated by the teachers with stars, tinsel, balloons etc. to make the Christmas spirit come alive. Santa Claus arrived at St. Agnes jingling with bells of happiness and joy on his scooter with two magical elves to meet his loving fans. Santa and his team conducted various games for the teachers, Christmas cake and Kushwar were shared . The boundless joy of Christmas was visible on the faces of the staff when they exchanged the handmade Christmas card to their secret friend. The celebration was graced by the appearance of our guest Sr. Dr. Lydia Fernandes A.C, the Superior and the Joint secretary of the institution. The Chief Guest appreciated the teachers for putting up a vibrant programme amid the Pandemic. She gave a message to celebrate true Christmas by welcoming the Saviour into heart and by reaching out to the poor and the marginalized.

The Principal Sr. Maria Gracilda A.C along with her staff gave a benevolent touch to the entire celebration by sharing their joy with the underprivileged by visiting the inmates of :

  1. Veronica Vihar home for aged , Maryhill
