LAAS Christmas Celebration December 2018
In December 2018, LAAS decided to celebrate Christmas differently.
Christmas is a time for love and sharing. It is fun to receive gifts from
others but last Christmas (2018), we decided to be the ones to share our blessings with others.
Half a day on 12th December 2018 was spent with at Anand Bhavan, Laitumkhrah Shillong – Home of Missionaries of
Charity (Mother Theresa) with the orphaned, abandoned and neglected children. There were about 35 children, all
below the age of 14 years but most of them were below the age of 7 years.
A warm welcome was received from the Sister in charge of Anand Bhavan which continued with a prayer. Children were given gifts
such as new school bags, pencil box and towels. As gifts were given out to the children, the atmosphere changed as there was
excitement in the eyes and behavior of the kids. Clothes, Soaps and detergents were also given so that it can be used for the
children. They were well treated with snacks too and had a cutting of the Christmas Cake. The kids were very happy to receive
all this and were overwhelm with the gifts.
This event was accompanied by a group of Christmas carol singers and a musician who were students of Loreto Convent. They were
enthusiastic and kind enough to take part and made the event lively and meaningful to the occasion.
This was a good initiative by LAAS as it gave the deprived ones a chance to enjoy the good food and gifts especially being Christmas time.
This gave the privilege to these less fortunate children to feel loved and feel special. It was a wonderful day for the kids. All the gifts
and snacks came from LAAS, but most of it was sponsored/gifted by the a few generous Ex LAAS executive members , a few of the current LAAS
executive members and also ex-pupils of Loreto Convent Shillong.
We thank the Sister incharge of Anand Bhavan who allowed us to visit the children, Principal of Loreto Convent School – Sister Mercia DSouza for
her support, the LAAS executive members who organized this event and their contribution, the singers-Loreto girls, everyone else who contributed
to this event and it’s success and the ex-LAAS executive members who continued and still continuing to hold our hand and motivated us to move forward.
Annual General Meeting Sept 2017
When the good ol' days call yet again, nostalgia surrounds us as we walk the hallowed
boulevards of our youth. As the years pass by and winds of change keep blowing,
let's reconnect with our Alma Mater to relive the carefree days. After some great
conversation, all those years wherein we have not seen each other will just fade
away. You would never want to miss the excitement and renewed camaraderie. We look
forward to seeing you on 23rd September, 2017 in the new school building at 2pm
for the Annual General Meeting.
