82nd ANNUAL DAY CELEBERATION

The Annual Day celebrations of St. Joseph’s Academy were held from 18th to 21st of November, 2015. The four-day event, commemorating 82 glorious years of SJA, was a cultural extravaganza which saw participation of nearly a thousand Josephites, and was widely lauded by one and all. While it was Lt. Gen. O. P. Kaushik who graced the occasion with his presence on 19th Nov, on 20th Nov, Mr. Ashok Kumar, ADG Intelligence and Security, Dehradun was the honourable Chief guest.

This was also the time when the trailblazers in academics and sports were felicitated. On 19th Nov, the ICSE toppers were awarded for their exemplary performance, while Arya Avi Savan was given the prize for the  Sportsperson of the year 2013-14 and Jahnavi Srivastava and Utsav Thapliyal were the Josephites of the Year 2013-14. On 20th Nov, ISC toppers were similarly awarded. Sumit Semwal was awarded as the  Sportsperson of the Year 2014-15, while Madhav Dobhal was the Josephites of the Year 2014-15.

On the evening of 21st November, eminent environmentalist and Padmashree winner Dr. Anil Prakash Joshi graced the occasion as the Chief Guest. Commencing with a mesmerizing semi-classical Invocation Dance that drew “ooh’s” and “aah’s” from the audience, the programme went on to showcase the adroitness and sheer talent of the adorable Junior Josephites. Through their cute gestures and expressions and colourful costumes, they told the story of the Genesis of the earth and mankind, the First Sin, the Fall, the Great Flood and redemption of mankind by Noah and his ark. Also in store was a grand musical, “Aladdin”, performed by Middle and Senior school students. Transporting the audience straight to the magical, mystical land of Agrabah, where magic lamps granted all wishes and paupers became Princes, the performance proved to be a great entertainment. From the evil Vizier’s maliciousness to the Genie’s exuberance, no one could deny that the actors’ performance was worthy of high praise.

It was also an occasion for the Principal, Rev. Bro. Dennis Joseph, to detail the school’s myriad achievements and activities through the past academic session. From team-based events like Milestone and Capta Caelum, to fields like creative writing, debating, quizzing and art, SJA left its mark everywhere. The school year was also peppered with a number of occasions such as the Investiture, the Cultural Week, the Independence Day, Teachers’ Day, Children’s Day celebrations etc. all of  which serve to add colour and vitality to life here at SJA.
While addressing the gathering , the Chief guest ,  Mr. Joshi spoke about the importance of keeping our environment clean and saving  the natural resources as we owe a lot to the planet Earth. He also praised the SJA family for organising such events that make the all round personality development of the students possible.The function  concluded with the vote of thanks by the Principal  followed by the rhythmic rendition of the school song.
