In the first week of November 2015, Media and Computer club of Auxilium Convent School, Dum Dum celebrated Media Week 2015-16.The theme given by Pope Francis this year for the World Communications Day is “Communication and Mercy: a fruitful encounter”, an advance theme which was never before thought of. Through the entire week the club tried to present a programme highlighting the capacity of good communication to open up a space for dialogue, mutual understanding and reconciliation, thereby allowing fruitful human encounters to flourish.
On the inauguration day, 2nd of November, 2015 the club inaugurated the week by lighting the lamp by Sr. Superior Sr. Teresa A., Sr. Principal Sr. Esther, the Moderator of the club and the President of the club followed by a prayer song portraying that “in prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”
Sr. Superior in her speech stressed on the importance of spreading humanitarian values through social networking, media and technology which is nowadays being used for evil welfare.
On the 3rd of November, the middle school had to put their thinking caps on to confront the Quiz competition with all their zeal. A slide show presentation based on the subject “Media: A medium to communicate!” was also presented. On the 4th, the club presented a short programme depicting how one can communicate through music. The very talented musicians of the middle school performed a musical piece along with a slide show based on human virtues and vices. On the 5th was a very special day as the high school presented a self made short film based on “Cyber Crime” along with a Quiz competition that proved to be a huge challenge to the high school participants.
The final day was the closing ceremony of the glorious Media week in which the club presented a dance depicting the story of a girl who gave her eye sight to her sibling, a song depicting the importance of spreading love through communication as a message of God and a skit depicting the pitiable condition of disabled (deaf and dumb) people in our society and the atrocities done to them. Sr. Principal delightfully congratulated the club and appreciated them for their efforts and asked everyone to use social networking sites safely for the welfare.
