The Independence Day Program at SDSHS was celebrated with great pride and vigour on the morning of 15th August 2019. The day began with the Holy Eucharist on the occasion of the feast of the Assumption of Mother Mary. This was followed by the Flag Hoisting Ceremony – by our Rector & Manager, Rev. Fr. Brian Moras accompanied by our Principal, Ms Valerie Mascarenhas – coupled with song, music, dance and speeches. Our Chief Guest for the day, Rev Fr. Brian Moras, enlightened the gathering on the meaning and importance of freedom in our lives today.
An Independence Day program at SDSHS is incomplete without the felicitation of the meritorious students and their parents, of the outgoing SSC batch. Our Guests of Honour Mr. & Mrs. George, parents of Mast. Alan George who topped the school with 94% at the SSC Examination March 2019, thanked the Management, teaching and non teaching staff for their tireless efforts in striving for the best for their children. The meritorious students of the SSC batch 2018 – 2019 were then honoured with certificates of merit for their overall academic performance at the Board Examination and in individual subjects.
The students of the Art & Craft, Art & Moulding and Pre Primary section displayed their artistic creativity and skills at a well planned and put together Art exhibition.
It was indeed a day of pride and honour for the entire fraternity of SDSHS.
