WADALA, FEBRUARY 3, 2011: The most important event of the year - a day of gratitude and thanksgiving - was celebrated on January 28, 2011. On this day, Rev. Fr. Aloysius Furtado, was felicitated for his completion of forty years of priesthood and fifty years of religious profession in the Lord’s vineyard.

All the members of the Joseph’s family looked very busy as they sat down to plan and prepare for the upcoming Annual day and to make it a memorable one. Finally, the much awaited day arrived. The evening was packed with entertainment and music with a special message to CARE FOR CREATION. Our young students thrilled the dignitaries and guests with their magnificent performance.

The chirpiest tiny-tots of the primary section welcomed everyone with their lyrical jig to the tune of Waka-Waka. Thereafter, the wriggly-wobblers of Stds I and II presented a mini musical ‘At The Bottom Of The Garden’ highlighting the theme of the year and focusing on the five R’s: Reuse, Recycle, Renew, Reduce and Recover.

The school was put on Cloud9 when Ms. Nicole, our vice-Principal, unfolded the school’s achievements through the school annual report. Later, the dream-go-getters of the school were honored with medals and certificates.

The comperes kept the audience wanting for more. To keep the special feeling of ‘Care for Creation’ alive in the atmosphere, the budding artists took the stage for the most awaited program- ‘ONE PLANET FUTURE’, the musical. The attention-gripping scenes, foot-tapping dances, melodious singing of the hundred and fifty-strong choir, lively props, mesmerizing lights and rhythmic sounds brought out the theme for the evening more forcefully.

Many worked hard on stage, as well as off-stage to make the enchanting evening a memorable one. Fr. Principal praised everyone who worked tirelessly to make the program a success. Each one present for this function took home the message to do his/her bit for our lovely, yet endangered, planet. And for us at St. Joseph’s, it was a moment to cherish and to thank God for yet another bountiful and blessed year.
