S., Principal Sr. Philomene Saldanha, Vice Principal Sr. Lourdes, teaching, non- teaching faculty and a few parent representatives of St. Theresa’s School, Mangaluru gathered together to bid adieu to Mrs. Janet Noronha, a primary School teacher on 17th October, 2020.

A warm welcome was extended to all gathered reminding them that the school is a home where a large family of teachers and students grow together and will always be a part of it.
Retirement is not just a case of not setting an alarm anymore to go to work. It’s a major life changing decision. A few of the teachers and parents delivered short speeches expressing their love and thanking her for all the guide and support that she has rendered over the years for the little kids of the institution to rise and shine.
The Secretary, and the Principal felicitated Mrs. Janet. The Principal expressed her heartfelt feelings stating how much the school and the little ones would miss the contribution of Mrs. Janet whose hearts she touched for the past 19 years and 4 months.
The thoughtfulness of the teachers and students made them include a dance to lift up the sinking spirits and create a lively feeling.
Farewell song was sung in chorus praying and wishing her a fabulous life full of happiness and cheer.
Too overpowered with grief to say anything coherently, Mrs. Janet spoke a few words expressing her experiences and promising to stay connected with the school even in her post retirement years.
The vote of thanks was delivered to express gratitude to everyone for their unrelenting support and especially Mrs. Janet for all the years of commitment for the development of the school. Overall it was an unforgettable experience and left a lasting impression on the minds of everyone present.
