Called To Serve
Robin Sharma , has rightly said ,” Anyone can lead when the plan is working .But the best lead when the plans fall apart” .The Covid -19 pandemic has been successful in making the academic plans for the year 2020-2021 to fall apart.
The management and the staff of St Thomas Academy would not let the crisis affect their working. On 30thJuly 2020, we as a school community met on the Google Meet platform to thank God for the gift of the newly elected –enthusiastic and dynamic leaders of our institution and bestow on them the governing responsibilities of the student council for the year 2020-2021.
The ceremony began by invoking the presence of God with a prayer service so that His Divine light would shine upon the members of the student council and guide them to carry on their duties to the best of their abilities. This was followed by the oath taking ceremony wherein the Headmistress Ms Zeenat Pereira, inducted and conferred on them their respective duties.
A word of advice from the Manager Rev. Dr. Fr. Francis Carvalho, and the Headmistress boosted the morale of the student council .The newly elected Head girl, Miss Blessy Lebanone, thanked the management and staff for conducting the induction ceremony online and showering their blessings upon them . On behalf of her team, she promised to give their best at all times and lead STA to great heights of success. We know that leadership and learning are indispensable to each other be it offline or online. Henry Ford has rightly said, “Coming together is a beginning, Keeping together is progress and working together is success “.
We congratulate the students’ council on their induction and extend our prayerful wishes and Gods choicest blessings on them. Mrs Venetha Sequeira
