The 1st of August, 2014 was the 28th Founders’ Day of Mayo College Girls’ School, and was a special day for students and teachers alike.
The day began with a special assembly for the school, where the school vice principal, the school captain, and the school vice captain made speeches about the school’s longstanding repute and excellence. After that, the students and teachers sat down for a pooja, which was followed by tea and cake for everyone. The staff and students then spent some time playing fun games which like Tug of War and Footsie Pop.
However, the biggest event of the day was the school fête, a huge celebration of the school’s founders’ day- or as the students like to think of it, the school’s birthday- and MCGS as well as Mayo College came together to celebrate. There were stalls and stalls of scrumptious food, including a school stall put up by the students who have opted for Village work in SUPW. The latter was called “Aao, Khaao, Nacho”, and sold nachos to buyers. All proceeds are to go in buying fans for the village school.
All too soon, the day came to an end. The stalls were empty, the people full and content, and it was time to go back to our houses- or homes. To mark the end of the day, fireworks were lit, and the night sky was bright and cheerful as everyone began to head back.
It was a perfect day, and a wonderful celebration of the school’s journey of twenty seven years.
