We had the privilege of Mr. and Mrs. Vidya Bagalodi, Philanthropist who joined the school in exhibiting their philately collection related to science. We applaud the involvement of our parents without whose contribution this exhibition wouldn’t be one of passion and pride. Our teacher Ms. Sylvia Fernandes came on stage with her heart swollen with gratitude. The programme was compeered by Roshna Narayan of class XI.
