The students of the schools at Vasai celebrated Christmas with lots of joy and vigor. The arrival of Santa Claus to Jingle Bells created a lot of excitement and enthusiasm for the children. The mystery of Christmas — peace, joy and love — was shared through Christmas plays, carols and cakes. The Sisters, staff and students of SCN institutions in Vasai, wish you a peace-filled Christmas and a prosperous new year!

Christmas is neither a time nor a season but a state of mind to cherish peace and goodwill. It is the season which calls us to spread Gospel values among people. It also kindles the fire of charity and hospitality in our hearts.

The Students Council of Nazareth Convent High School in Vasai was proud to make this advent season different from other years. Apart from decorating their classes, singing Christmas carols, and preparing cribs, they decorated their Christmas tree with good deeds done by fellow students.

With the help of their principal, Sister Elizabeth Jaya Rani, the Students Council introduced a unique project this year during advent. The project was that whenever any student did a good deed to fellow students, they received a star from leaders and placed it on the Christmas tree. The beautifully decorated tree gives the message of Christmas that it is a time for peace, harmony and reconciliation.
