St. Anthony's High School - Malwani, STD X Orientation


One Hundred and Ninety Two students of Standard Ten, belonging to St. Anthony’s High School, Malwani, were today given an opportunity to partake in a Students’ Leadership training program that was organized by the AVEC team.

Breaking up into three groups, the students had a better opportunity to listen attentively and participate effectively all through. Fr. James D’Costa, Principal of the school, welcomed Fr. Glenford Lowe sdb and Mr. Rochwyn Fernandes. Through various interactive moments coupled with PowerPoint presentations and short motivational clips the students were challenged to focus on their lives and to make a difference.

The Leadership session began with a short devotional song that spoke of God’s presence in the beauty of Creation. The students were then taken to a deeper level of self through a breathing exercise conducted by Mr. Rochwyn. Fr. Glenford Lowe then focused on twelve soft –skills that were a necessary ingredient of every leader. Time wasn’t sufficient for further discussions but every student felt that there was enough food for thought and inspiration for living life to the full.

The AVEC team was really impressed by the high level of discipline, attentiveness and participation given by the students. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Many students took time to pen a few words of appreciation. Given below are a few of their responses:

“We, the students of St. Anthony’s High school, studying in STD X-B, are very grateful to you for showing us this special and interesting program. We have learnt many things from this session.
