ST. AGNES HIGH SCHOOL – BYCULLA: STUDENTS’ VALUE ORIENTATION
July 13, 2012: Over two hundred and fifteen students of Standard Ten, from St. Agnes High School – Byculla, participated in a Diamond Value Orientation Program ‘Value Sills for Life: Living by Values’ that was organized by AVEC in the school hall. The school Principal, Sr. Louisa, welcomed the speakers. Two sessions were held in order to accommodate the four divisions in one day.
Mr. Rochwyn Fernandes began the session with a Prayer Song that invited the students to focus on being a ‘Light’ in a darkened world. He then took the students through a silent fantasy meditation that enabled the students to focus on their breath of life. The speaker for the day, Fr. Glenn was then introduced to the students.
The sessions were an eye opener to many a student and the response to the sessions could be seen in the various comments that were written in the AVEC log book.
