Graduation Day
Graduation is a momentous occasion to be remembered for a lifetime, for a milestone has been achieved in the lives of the graduating students.
'What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason!
How infinite in faculties!
In form and moving, how express and admirable!
In action, how like an angel!
In apprehension, how like a god!
The beauty of the world!
The paragon of animals!

Shakespeare's evocation of the infinite faculties of man represents the full faith of his age, in man's ability to scale the heights of thought, love and beauty. It is the power of emotion and reason which sets the homo sapiens apart from the other beings on the lower rungs of the evolutionary ladder. It is the utilization of these qualities, which moulds the personality of an individual either raising him to a God-like height, or reducing him to be the 'quintessence of dust'. True education is training of both the head and the heart. In the words of Steven Muller, "Universities are turning out highly skilled barbarians because we don't provide a framework of values to young people who more and more are searching for it".

In the words of Fr. Peter Mary Mermier “the heart of education is the education of the heart”. Intellectual education influences the head and values-based education influences the heart. A person who is morally educated will be a lot better equipped to move up in life or succeed than a morally bankrupt person with excellent academic qualifications.

SFS School has been instrumental in helping the children to recognize their hidden talents. It has powered them with energy, motivation, permanence, perseverance and persistence to chase their goals and to achieve excellence in life. Reminiscence 2013 (the Graduation Ceremony) was held on 22nd February 2013. Rev. Fr. Joseph Thayil preside over the function and Rev. Dr. Thomas Kalariparampil, the chief of the ceremony addressed the gathering and gave away the certificates to the graduating students.
