• Independence Day Celebrations - 2016 : Our Nation’s 70th Independence Day was celebrated with much fervor and passion. The students from Nursery to Class XII participated in honouring our country’s heroes who laid down their lives for our freedom.. The tiny tots danced to patriotic songs waving the National Flag dressed in the most vibrant national colours. The Junior School performed a beautiful dance with the Junior School Choir singing “We Shall Overcome” in English, Hindi and finally in Bengali. Class Three presented a beautiful skit portraying how the British enslaved us and through the great sons of the soil, like Mahatma Gandhi (Bapu), Jawaharlal Nehru, Bhagat Singh, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Lal Bahadur Shashtri, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and so many others, we obtained freedom. They children carried their costumes well and enacted their parts. Patriotic poems were well recited by Debolina Mondal and Sreejita Maity from Class IIIA in Bengali; Ruchika Prasad from Class III C in Hindi and finally from the Senior School, Hritik Sarkar of Class XIA. The Senior School girls danced to a beautifully arranged medley of songs: Vande Mataram (by A. R. Rahman), Desh (from the movie Fanna) and finally Vande Mataram once again (by Kavitha Krishnamurthy) paying homage to the nation. A tribute was paid to the Jawan who is constantly vigilant, day and night, protecting our borders from our enemies. A paranormal play written by Mashira Ambareen of how the spirit of a dead soldier who died protecting our borders, returns to bring victory through another soldier presently fighting on bravely in the same place and in a similar situation which he experienced and died fighting to protect our motherland. As Mashira Ambareen read out the play four of our students acted out the storylines. It was heart rendering and in a moment realization dawned upon us, of how we take for granted the peace provided to us by our brave soldiers. Songs were sung to the accompaniment of the guitar played by Sebastian Romeo Makhal (XII C) and the synthesizer played by Antariksh Venkatarman (XI A). The songs sung were ‘Chunnar’ by Arjit Singh and ‘Vande Mataram by Lata Mangeshkar. The programme was well hosted by Abhilasha Singh (Head Girl). At the end of the programme our Principal, Dr. M. P. Rozario and Ma’am Mrs. Rashmi Rozario shared their views on Independence Day and thanked the children for presenting the programme which was well planned and executed.
  • The Final of the Inter-House Football Tournament was played out on Friday 11th August. Red House (St. Mathew) and Blue House (St. Luke) teams assembled on the ground looking very enthusiastic and excited to commence the match and win the Bruno Rozario Memorial Trophy. Bruno Rozario was the fifth son of our Founder Mr. Christopher Rozario. He was a great athlete and an excellent sportsman who excelled in football. He was the Captain of his School’s team and was a much sought after footballer even representing many local clubs. There were predictions that one day he would soon adorn a famous club jersey. But fate denied him the honour and his demise at the age of 18 years was a shock not only to his family but to all his well wishers. The week began with much rain and the effects of a severe depression. After three days of rain and overcast weather the skies cleared and there was plenty of sunshine. The teams showed some great talent and ball control, but it was Blue House (St. Luke) which opened their account through Tuhin Saha from Class XIIA. Red House (St. Mathew), were never given a chance to equalize as the solid defence of the Blue House (St. Luke) team foiled every attack. It was not long before Tuhin moved forward and slammed in his second goal. The final whistle was blown and the triumphant Blue House (St. Luke) team broke out in ecstasy as they were crowned the Bruno Rozario Memorial Trophy Soccer Champion House of 2016. Commiserations to Red House (St. Mathew), better luck next year. Later in the afternoon of 11th August, the Daddies of the students of St. Sebastian’s School gathered at the grounds to play in the ‘Daddies’ Football’ match organized by St. Sebastian’s School. For the 7th consecutive year ‘Daddies’ Football’ was organized by the School Management. Many of the fathers entered their names but 30 were chosen by a draw of lots. Two teams were pitted against each other; they were ‘Manchester United’ and ‘Real Madrid’. The Daddies showed immense skill and stamina and it was Daddy Sujit Kr Mondal which opened the scoring for Real Madrid with a super header. Barely a minute later Daddy Md. Kamal Reza the captain of Manchester United equalized after a melee near the far right post. The game went into the second half and it was the Man of the Match, Daddy Sanjeev Singh who scored for Real Madrid from an acute angle to take the lead and seal the outcome of the game. After both matches were over Dr. M. P. Rozario our School Principal congratulated all participants for making both matches interesting. He later handed over the Winner’s and Runner’s Up medals to all the players before finally presenting the Winner’s Trophy. There were victory chants as the Blue House (St. Mathew) Captain Md. Wahabuddin of XII-A raised the Bruno Rozario Memorial Trophy. Snacks and refreshments were served to conclude an eventful day. The Daddies on their part reciprocated their best wishes to Principal Sir and Mrs. Rashmi Rozario Ma’am by presenting them with floral bouquets and Mementos.
