inculcate this value in the ‘hearts and minds’ of children, St. Francis of
Assisi school celebrated friendship day on August 5, 2017. Children came with
variety and colourful friendship bands and tied to their best friends and
teachers, expressing their sentiments of love, respect and gratitude to them.
Speaking on friendship, Fr Jason Principal of the school quoted the quotation
from Book of Sirach, “Faithful friends are a sturdy shelter: whoever finds one
has found a treasure (6:14).” Thus, he stressed the importance of friendship and
truthfulness in the dealing with one’s friend. It’s only genuineness can
transform one true and faithful friend. As the Independence Day of India is
