“The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it.”
– Mother Teresa.
‘Happy May Day’ to the workers! Workers are the invisible backbone of a nation,
as a nation is only able to stand strong because of them. This is the second May
Day during COVID-19 and hence as dark as it was in 2020, if not darker. The
students of class IX and XI prepared a special online prayer service for the worker
class. Speech by Siya Jain and Pranati Goswami of class X-C, Recitation and Posters
by the students expressing their gratitude to all the helpers were displayed online.
To let the students acknowledge the importance and dignity of labours, our school’s primary section celebrated Labour’s Day on 1st May 2021 with great enthusiasm. They participated in various activities like poem recitation, dressing themselves in outfit of various people who help us like plumber, gardener, farmer etc. and said few lines on their importance in our daily lives during live online classes.
Students were enabled to understand the importance and necessity of the day and were encouraged to respect and understand their continuous and selfless labour in our lives.
As a result of Covid-19 restrictions in schools, we could not celebrate our Foundation Day together as we normally would, so we had a virtual celebration making use of technology
We were hoping for dipping cases and happy faces of students and preparing for ‘return to normal’ fully functional new academic session 2021-22, but circumstances are grim so ‘Online classes’ will be continued. Covid-19 has posed significant challenges in the continuity of learning. Nevertheless it has not dampened our spirit. We started the new academic session 2021-22 by conducting online classes. Parents were informed as per the directives of the directorate regarding the new teaching session.
Since teachers are the second most important influence on a young person’s life, after their parents,the roots, the basis, the foundation of any other career a ‘Motivational Seminar’ was organised by our Principal, Sr. Leena to ‘Empower Educators’ through ‘Continuous Professional Development’. It’s hard for the staff not to miss the daily contact of their colleagues, the routines of their classrooms, and the in-person collaboration with other teachers. The ‘Motivational talk by Lt.Col. Deepti’ from the Indian Army was an inspiration for the teachers at the onset of the new academic session 2021-22.The entire staff of Sophia Bikaner had an engaging and enriching session with Lt.Col. Deepti.
It was indeed a special morning for all of us – the management and staff Sophia,Bikanerthe celebration of the inauguration of the New Block. We are all sure that God’s blessings of deeper love, fuller trust in God and a greater peace of heart have come down mightily on this new building and on all of us. Let’s hope that this temple of learning will stand erect for many years to come, giving the light of truth and knowledge and thereby fulfil the real purpose of education. Rev. Fr. Sebastian and Father Dony of BBS, inaugurated the New Block by cutting the ribbon. Rev. Fr. Sebastian and Father Dony lead the ceremony of blessing through prayer service, and blessed the entire school building by sprinkling the Holy Water.
We embrace our past on Founder’s Day while celebrating the present and looking forward to the future.Founders’ Day is extremely important for the school for two reasons: firstly, it is a day on which we celebrate achievement – our many achievements, individual and collective; second, it is an important occasion for the whole school to be together, to do things together, and to remember that we are an important and strong community.Keeping our Founder's words of enlightenment, the school conducted a special assembly holding all the necessary protocols of Covid on April 5, 2021.Our tribute to Rev. Father Henry Caumont exemplifies the continuation into the present day of the high standards of education for girls that he established.
A very exciting moment for the XII class students who have been waiting for this programme throughout the year. The program commenced with welcome note by our teachers followed by meaningful prayer service and inspirational skit and songs performed specially by the teachers for their loving students. Principal’s message was a source of enlightenment for the students. Program concluded with a very pious candle ceremony where the flame of knowledge was passed from 12th standard students to their juniors.
International women's day was celebrated in Sophia Senior Secondary School Bikaner on 8 March 2021 which amplified the social, cultural, economic and political power of female .To make this day more meaningful a very inspiring prayer service was organised by male staff members of our school in honour of women on the theme 'Nari tu hi Shakti hai' .
A meaningful message was portrayed through this prayer service which emphasized that female reflect the power of universe ,she is the nurturer ,she is the incarnation of 'Shakti' the goddess of Power.
Male staff members gave numerous examples of female empowerment in various fields of art, science , literature, civil services, politics, etc. They even acknowledged the mighty contribution carried by our Mission sisters of Ajmer. Sisters with their great vision and remarkable strength of perseverance run numerous colleges ,school ,hospitals and charity institution from past 100 years in empowering the female child.
It was indeed a wonderful day which left behind the imprints of realisation that females are equally an integral part of development for any country.
