CLASS XI students of St Joseph’s Co-Ed School, Arera Colony, bade farewell to outgoing students of the school at a grand function organised at the school ground on Saturday.

The programme ‘Memory Lane Adio’s Unforgettables 2005-06’ began with the lighting of the lamp by the principal of the school Fr Maria Stephen and manager Fr Abraham. Class XI students welcomed students of Class XII with tilak, arti and flowers.

A discussion was held in the first session of the programme and principal Fr Maria Stephen interacted with the outgoing students. He asked students what they had done for the institution.

The students replied that they had contributed in various ways. Some said they had set examples for juniors by being disciplined, sincere and punctual. Some said they had contributed to the school by winning prizes in various competitions.

The principal told the students that artificial smiles, gestures and wealth would never give them real satisfaction. “Only simplicity will give real joy and satisfaction,” he said.

The outgoing students also gave some valuable advice to their juniors. “Living within the bounds of rules and regulations and satisfying our needs is the key to success,” said the manager of the school Fr Abraham. Following the discussion session, interesting titles and mementos were given to the senior students.

Class XI students presented various cultural programmes like songs, dances and skit on the occasion. The most interesting part of the programme was the selection of ‘Mr and Miss Eve’ of the farewell function.

Pallav Dube won the ‘Mr Eve’ contest, while Divya Dhrangadharia bagged the title of ‘Ms Eve’. ‘Mr and Ms St Joseph’s Co-ed’ titles were given on the basis of the students’ all-round performance throughout the academic session.

Mrinal Shrivastava won the ‘Mr St Joseph’s Co-Ed’ title and Shrobona Karkun got the title of ‘Ms St Joseph’s Co-Ed’. Principal Fr Maria Stephen and Manager Fr Abraham congratulated the winners and wished them success in their future. Headmistress Sr Mercy and Head Coordinator Sr Julie were also present on the occasion.
