Mangaluru, Apr 25: It was indeed an emotional day for the entire Lourdite family as we bid farewell to the four beautiful stars Ivan Mascarenhas, Metilda Pinto, Theresa A’lmeida and Maxim D’Souza on April 22.
The programme began invoking God’s blessings led by Roshan Cordeiro and team. Leena Sequeira welcomed the dignitaries and the entire gathering.
“Appreciation can make a day and even change life”. So on behalf of the Lourdite community Roshan Cordeiro, Lavita D’souza, Alica D’silva and Rohan Sequeira expressed their words of appreciation and gratitude. Later the outgoing staffwere felicitated by manager Dr John Baptist Saldanha, principal Fr Robert D’souza and vice principal Belita Mascarenhas.
In his speech principal Fr Robert D’souza said it is a great blessing to be in an educational institution. He said the four stars are young at heart, peaceful and have touched human lives and influenced many students. He thanked them for always standing for the Institution and for their contribution in the growth of the Institution. He thanked them for their dedicated and committed service, and wished them good luck in their future endeavours.
Dr John Baptist Saldanha addressed the gathering and said all the four outgoing staff members had unique qualities in them and urged the Lourdite family to remember each one of them in their prayers. He also requested the staff members to keep in touch with the outgoing staff by visiting them once in a while. He blessed each one of them and congratulated them for their achievement.
