CARMEL OF ST. JOSEPH - ORLEM, MUMBAI


ORLEM, SEPTEMBER 21, 2010: CARMEL OF ST. JOSEPH - STD X ORIENTATION

The AVEC team organised a two hour orientation program for two hundred and twenty students of Standard Ten from Carmel of St. Joseph, Orlem. Thanks to Sr. Shalom principal of the school, who took the initiative to have this session in Value Education for the students. The students were also accompanied by a number of teachers. After an initial introduction by the principal, Mr. Rochwyn began the session with a prayer song followed by an awareness session through a short meditation. The students took part in this exercise whole heartedly.
Fr. Glenn Lowe then took the students through a 'Twelve point' program in order to motivate the students to begin living their lives more meaningfully; to make a difference in their own lives first and then to 'be' a difference in society too. Using everyday life experiences and short video clips, the students were able to align themselves to cherish and own the values that were being clarified.

The students were deeply moved from within - many committed themselves to make a new start and to live a life of purpose and meaning. Time was too short.... but the message was for a life time. Given below are some of the observations written by the students in the AVEC log book:
