CHILDREN AND TEACHERS DAY CELEBRATION – 2019
Holy Family Convent, Bambalapitiya celebrated ‘Children’s and Teachers Day’ for the year 2019 in style on the 1st of October under the theme; “Be True to Yourself”. This year’s celebration focused on how you should not change yourself according to society’s standards, but that you should indeed be true to yourself and be the person who you strive to be.
The day started off with a prayer service organized by the students and teachers and continued with the teachers renewing their ‘Teacher’s pledge’. Fitting to the date, 4 teachers who had successfully completed 25 years in school were felicitated for their services.
Next, the entertainment items took the spotlight with the students showcasing their singing and dancing skills. This included the Kandyan dance, the Oriental musical item, the annual Prefects’ dance and the special dance done by the primary teachers. The prefect’s body had also organized a Horror House for the student’s amusement. The day ended off very happily with everyone thanking the Lord for blessing the day with sunny skies…..
