LCS Women’s Day 2024

“There are two powers in the world; one is the sword and the other is the pen. There is a third power stronger than both, that of women.” – Malala Yousafzai  .

Every year on March 8th, Lourdes Central School joins the global celebration of International Women’s Day. This is a day dedicated to recognize the incredible achievements of women, highlighting the struggles they overcome and advocating for gender equality.

In this regard the occasion was celebrated in Lourdes Central School and it was marked by the conduct of a special assembly by the students of the school. 

The programme commenced, as the MC Aman Karkera of Class 8 led the audience in a contemplative mood by reciting the universal prayer followed by Prayer Song and intentions.  The significance presented recognized the sacrifices of women in the society.

Thought for the day by Anantesh of Class 8 provided a reflective interlude, drawing inspiration from Michelle Obama who said that “No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half its citizens”.

The significance of the day was expounded by Abhimanyu  of  Class 12 under the guidance of Mr. Girish Suvarna. International Women’s Day is a reminder that women play a vital role in shaping our society. They are mothers, daughters, sisters, leaders, educators, and change makers. This day allows us to celebrate their contributions and advocate for a world where women have equal opportunities to thrive.

Songs play a powerful role in celebrating any occasion for several reasons. So the students of Class 8C sang a melodious song highlighting the qualities of women such as strength, resilience, compassion, empathy, determination and so on.

The event culminated with an address by the Principal Rev. Fr. Robert D’Souza, who commenced his speech with a message, “Women have always been the epitome of strength and resilience.”  A charming woman does not follow the crowd. She is herself. The most beautiful thing a woman can wear is confidence. The Principal emphasized the paramount significance of sacrifice, commitment and goodwill of the women in the country.

The programme was compered by Aman Karkera of class 8C under the guidance of Ms Mini Kumari. The programme helped the students to acknowledge and value the role played by mothers and teachers in their lives.
