The celebrations got under way with the school’s own brass band leading the President of the function, Fr Andrew D’Souza, Parish Priest, St. Lawrence Church, Bondel, along with other dignitaries, being led to the vast school playground, escorted by Sr. Matilada, Headmistress, and other school functionaries.

Apart from the higher primary section, the campus hosts 382 Kannada medium, 222 English medium students in the high school and 287 Pre-University students Sr. Matilda said that in the 2012 SSLC Exam, of the 160 students, 150 passed and in PU, of the 130, 128 passed, giving a percentage of 95 and 98, respectively.
