Our Annual Functions are unique in their own way. St. Helena’s School celebrates all National Days, with a sense of great patriotic pride. On Republic Day, we have a Parade, followed by a Traffic Signal Display, performed by the Road Safety Patrol. On Independence Day, we invite the first three toppers in the ICSE exam, of the previous year. The first topper comes as the Chief Guest, to address the school and hoist the tri colour.
is celebrated with great excitement, as the girls of std X, put up a variety entertainment and organize games for the teachers. One year Fr. Cletus D’Souza from the Don Bosco Youth Centre, ran a workshop on teaching skills, for our teachers.
The teachers, in reciprocation, entertain the children with a Programme on Children’s Day where students are treated to a variety of refreshments.
both junior & senior, are also conducted with much enthusiasm and excitement, with the Houses vying with each other, for the top rank. The Army band provides the music for the March Past and concludes with Beating the Retreat- a solemn ceremony indeed. This year, we had Brig Bhatt as the Chief Guest, taking the salute at the March Past. One of the highlights of our Sports Day is the Pyramid Formation performed by the students of all classes. The girls of Standard X form a ‘human gate’ which opens & closes to each pyramid formation.
Prize Giving Day, is another much awaited event, where the toppers in all classes, receive both prizes and certificates at the hands of the Chief Guest, where dignitaries, such as Mrs. Anu Aga, Chairperson, Thermax and Mr. Niteen Kareer, the Muncipal commissioner, have been invited. Then follows a Variety Entertainment, where students of all ages, exhibit their talents in the various fields of all our other extra curricular activities.
We, at St. Helena’s, eagerly look forward to the month of February as it is time for our annual fete.
The Centenary fete was declared open by Rev. Kenseelan, who was the Presbyter of St. Paul’s Church. This annual event, is a major attraction for one & all. The Children were thrilled with the merry go round, the Giant wheel, The Micky and Mini-train and Every one enjoyed the day of fun and fanfare. The funds collected from our Centenary Fete, are to be used for the new building structure.
is celebrated on the Death Anniversary of our founder, with a Thanksgiving Service, where, invariably, an ex student is invited to be the chief guest and recount memories of her years in St. Helena’s. We had Mrs Roshan Barucha, on one such occasion, as our Chief Guest. Senior students visit the grave of our Founder and decorate it with white flowers to pay homage to her memory. Students also visit various charitable organizations, where donations in kind, are made by the children themselves.
