SCHOOL PICNIC – XI and XII
The picnic for the Higher Secondary students was slated to unfurl on the 21st of November 2020. Unlike the regular estate visits, this time it was a game changer. Bro. Principal rolled out a new kind of enjoyment for the boys. The venue was fixed at the CS GRAND ADVENTURE THEME PARK that had its amazing existence near the Dharmapuri District. The students accompanied by Bro. Kennedy, Bro. Robert along with the teaching faculty had a bundle of flabbergasting events at the park. Filled with scenic pastures and coconut trees, the students discovered the active physical strength in them as they tried to conquer the rope games that stood gigantic at a height of 15 feet above ground level. The organisers were courteous enough in providing the students with the vivid meals and were with the students from dawn to dusk. The rain dance, the balloon burst, the trampoline games and many more games were organised to in still the spirit of teamwork and leadership among the young Montfortians. The retiring rooms had given an extra punch of amusement to the boys while they happy heartedly never found a reason to miss any of the events. The bullock-cart rides, the swimming pool, the astrology were the other events to serve the students with some extra surprises.
The wonderful day had come to a halt with a movie projected on an open screen taking its support on the vegetation there.
The boys gleaming with joy and gratitude to the officials of the park finally bid adieu as they left for their school later that night.
