Mount Carmel Primary students celebrate the Spirit of CHRISTMAS
Mangaluru: The Christmas celebration at the primary wing of Mount Carmel Central School, Mangaluru, was ushered in the festive spirit of love, peace and joy on December 23, 2023. The highlight of the celebration was the heartwarming performances put up by the students in grades C and D.
The programme commenced with a prayer dance. Avani and Reyansh welcomed the gathering, especially the Chief Guest, Sr Freda, the Superior of Veronica Vihar, Maryhill. The students articulated the true essence of Christmas very meaningfully. What happened in the town of Bethlehem 2000 years ago? The birth of the Prince of Peace, Lord Jesus, was nostalgically depicted in the form of carols, a dance, and a skit. Santa’s bell spread positive vibes among the students.
The Chief Guest, Sr Freda, in her message, signified the true meaning of Christmas. She said to open our hearts to love, extend our hands to help the needy, and find joy in giving rather than in receiving. The winners of the Children’s’ Day and Christmas competitions were felicitated. Shivanshi and Delony conveyed a note of gratitude.
As part of the celebration, the students exchanged kuswar in their respective classrooms and relished the cake distributed by the school.
