Rev Fr Valerian Mendonca in his introductory address expressed his joy as correspondent to see the renovated block and said St Mary’s is climbing the ladder of progress under the leadership of Principal Fr Johnson.

The Bishop said, there is double celebration and dual happiness. Firstly, the installation of Mother Mary’s statue at the entrance of the administrative area symbolises the role of the mother and her love, care and affection towards the children. Secondly, the inauguration of the renovated parlour, the heart of the institution gives a bird’s view of an institution. By referring to the hardships we are facing due to COVID-19 he opined in way the pandemic has proved to be blessing wherein a lot of new ideas, things and concepts are getting developed. The whole system of Education has changed. The teaching has shifted from within four walls to virtual teaching within the digital screens and in future there may not be any need of educational institutions if we think technically. As the world around is changing we must be ready to adapt these changes which are inevitable for the very existence of the System of Education with human values. He congratulated the correspondent, principal, vice principal and the staff by giving a call to be the light to and salt of the life of students entering this temple of learning. He wished that the school may reach its zenith of Glory with a difference.

On this occasion the engineer of the renovated project Mr Simon and Contractor Faraz, and all the others who toiled hard to give a new look to the parlour were honoured by the Bishop. The programme came to an end with the school anthem after the proposal of vote of thanks by Ms Rita Quadros, vice principal of the school. Mr Vinay Suvarna coordinated the programme fabulously.
