Rev Fr Bernard Lawrence, parish priest of Sagaya Madha Church Velachery, was the chief guest. In his message to the audience he said, “In the early tradition of Christmas, people exchanged hand-made gifts. This symbolises that every individual is the gift of Christmas.”
Rev Father B Anthony, Correspondent of the school, thanked members of the staff, parents and students saying, “Christmas is the spirit of humankind and the attribution of the love of God.”
Principal of Don Bosco Matriculation School Jothimani, Headmaster of St Joseph’s Higher Secondary School Savarimuthu, Headmaster of Good Samaritan Primary School Victor, Principal of Don Bosco Primary School Jaya, were also present.
