CHILDREN’S DAY CELEBRATION – 14/11/2022
St. Xavier’s Boys’ Academy celebrated ‘Children’s day’ on 14th November.
The theme of the day was ‘Be your own Superhero’ as we wanted to inspire and motivate our students to be the best that they can be. Students of class 7, 8, 9 and 10 were given ‘Inspirational Quotes’ booklets and students of class 5 and 6 were given little notebooks with a pen. All students were given chocolate wafer biscuits and then moved down to the school auditorium for a special entertainment programme to celebrate our students and the joy of childhood. The backdrop, prayer service, audio-visuals, speeches, songs, skits and dances were well planned and presented as we attempted to create an awareness of the plight of exploited children, make our students appreciate their blessings and urge each one of them to pursue excellence. The cheering and interactive participation of our students showed that they had an enjoyable morning.

The 14th of November – the birthday of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru is celebrated as Children’s Day. The staff of St.Xavier’s Boys’ Academy from all three sections collaborated to celebrate their students with all their heart after two years of online schooling.
The teachers expressed their love in many different ways one of them was by decorating the boards with the students names and writing little messages. After prayer our Manager Fr.Blaise D’Souza s.j. gave a heartfelt speech about nurturing ‘the child within’ despite one’s age. The symphony and lyrics of the song melodiously sung by the teachers deeply resonated with the students. A series of energetic dances which further boosted the excitement of the students was the next item. Ms.Adelaide Pereira shed light on the special theme of the day ‘Be your own superhero’ and our Vice Principal – Mr.Savio D’Mello was the compere for this event who did a commendable job.
Our School Captain – Keval Parekh expressed his gratitude to the staff on behalf of the students at the end of the celebrations. We have our super power – our teachers so we need not wear any capers to roar the skies as long as we cherish the bonds of love and gratitude with our teachers and friends.
Children’s day is celebrated on 14th November the birthday of Pandit Nehru who loved children immensely. Our school celebrated this occasion after two years of lockdown. All secondary students assembled in school by 10.30 a.m. and we were surprised to see the efforts taken by our teachers to decorate the blackboards and wrote our individual names on it. By 11.00 a.m. we assembled in the school hall to view a special programme organised and held specially for us by our lovely teachers.
As always every program starts with a prayer service. Teachers from all sections prayed to God for us followed by a prayer dance. Teachers of the secondary section put up an inspirational skit which clearly showed that education should be available to all sections of society. The teachers uplifted our moods with their melodious singing and dances and set the stage on fire by their superb performance. After the programme we were given our gifts – a booklet “ Be a cheerful giver” which was full of inspirational quotes and stories that will inspire us throughout our life. This was a funfilled day and we are very thankful to all our teachers and support staff for working so hard to surprise us most pleasantly on Children’s day.
