4th August, 2010: Andheri Deanery - Value Coordinators' Meeting
St. Dominic Savio' High School today hosted the first ever AVEC meeting on Deanery level for thirteen schools. Twenty four Value Education Coordinators met together with the AVEC team this morning for over four hours to understand better the workings of the AVEC and to plan for the future together.
Mr. Rochwyn Fernandes welcomed the participants and in a special way thanked Fr. Godfrey D'Souza, Rector of Dominic Savio and Fr. Crispino D'Souza, Principal for hosting the Value Education Coordinators' meeting. Ms. Michelle D'Souza presented a set of three dozen AVEC posters to Fr. Godfrey as a memento.
Mrs. Sany Joseph, from ASHA Book House presented a talk on the importance of Value Education in all our schools and invited the participants to have a look at their 'Roadmaps to Living' as a resource book for their schools.
Fr. Glenford Lowe sdb, director of AVEC then addressed the participants on how each one of them could be 'deep roots' for the AVEC and to nourish the dreams and plans of the AVEC for the future.
How "Value Education" is different from Moral Science and Community living was well explained.
The participants had time to interact with one another and took time to go through all the available resource material and promised to take greater interest in the future.
Tasty snacks were also provided by the schools for all the participants.
Mrs. Vidya from, Dominic Savio's presented the vote of thanks.
