17th June 2017 was a day filled with excitement, joy and anxious emotions as the kindergarteners were all ready for the onset of their formal education. The term BIENVENIDO is derived from a Spanish word, which means ‘Welcome’. Bienvenido couldn’t be more apt to describe the momentous occasion. A half a day program was organized, arranged and executed in two segments. The inaugural function was graced by Fr. Joshy Phillip as the president of the ceremony, Mrs. Anu Susan John as the chief guest, Mrs. Greeshma Geovar as the guest of honor and the most respected and admired Principal Fr. Soby Thomas. The dignitaries were led to the dais by the school band, cabinet leaders, flower girls and NCC cadets. Following which, there was a prayer song, lighting of the lamp and a very informative, necessary general talk on the functionalities of the school by Fr. Joshy Philip, Manager SFS Academy and President of the ceremony and the school Principal.

Students of SFS Academy staged a most magnificent cultural program for the entertainment of the new members of SFS Family. The theme of the program was centered on the relationship and the role of a teacher in a pupil’s life. The second segment of the ceremony was the introduction and orientation program led by Mrs. Anu Susan John for the esteemed parents of our new recruits. The key areas that were touched upon; a). The school system, b). Rules and Regulations of the School, c). Role of a parent in bringing up their wards. Suggestions were welcomed, doubts were cleared and the audiences participated actively in the orientation program.

This year’s curriculum was also introduced through a presentation made by a new English language learning program - KARADI PATH. Parents were exposed to the new methods the school has introduced this academic year onwards. The program concluded assuring the parents of the strong relationship and the interplay of the roles between them and the institution.
