Another Deanery level meeting for the Value Education Coordinators was organised by AVEC for eleven schools within the Santacruz Deanery. Fr. Vernon, the Dean and Parish Priest of Sacred Heart school welcomed the twenty one teachers from the various schools and wished them well for the day. Mr. Rochwyn thanked Fr. Vernon and his community for hosting the event and for providing the premises, the snacks and the facilities of the hall, projector and sound system. As a sign of appreciation, the AVEC team presented Fr. Vernon with a set of Value Education posters.
Mr. Rochwyn then presented the responsibilities of the AVEC and also gave a brief of the last year's achievements and the plans for this year. He then invited Sany Joseph, from ASIA BOOK HOUSE to present her talk on Values and to brief the participants about the 'Roadmap for Better Living', a best selling Value Education Series for schools.
"What you see, is what you get!!!" said Fr. Glenn as he began his presentation on the need for creating enabling Value based schools in the archdiocese of Mumbai. The Value Education coordinators of the schools were invited to take up the role of being a 'ROOT' and a 'ROUTE' - to set a strong foundation and to set the direction for Value Education in every school. Through a very lively, humorous and participative approach all the teachers took home one message... Building a New Humanity through Universal Values.
Mrs. Pooja, a teacher of Sacred Hearts, Santacruz then proposed a vote of thanks. Mr. Jimmy then presented "Certificates of Participation' to all the teachers. A group photo was taken to freeze this wonderful moment in time.
