                “Understand your worth. Value your life. Appreciate your blessings”

                Life is a beautiful gift of God and one should learn to value it. For every human life is roller coaster ride, the ups and downs in one’s life give them lessons for life. People end up complaining about the things they never got in life, whereas there are others who despite having resources are unable to make the best of it. On occasion of World’s AIDS Day the students of St Xavier’s High school decided to take an initiative and talk about the taboo topic of AIDS and break the barrier of primitive thinking. The students aimed to bring awareness about the deadliest disease to which no cure has been diagnosed. The only cure to the disease is the prevention against it. The assembly began by seeking Lord’s blessingsfollowed by the news updates. The students also talked about the causes, prevention and cure to the disease. The assembly also had a synchronised choir which sang harmonious prayer song to bring hope and aspiration to the people struggling with this painful deadly disease.Two students also recited self-composed poems creating the aura of good spirit and motivation to beat the stress of disease. The nimble feet of the dance troopshowed a very soulful performance showcasing the plight of the people struggling through the trauma of AIDS. The audience was spellbound to see the contemporary dance form and could relate to the performer. The theme of the dance focussed on the fact that life is too ironic, it takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to appreciate silence, and absence to value presence.

                The school principal Mr.Stanley Anthony also addressed the assembly and talked about spreading the awareness about the disease.

                The assembly concluded with the National Anthem leaving everyone inspired to build an acceptance towards the dealing with disease and helping them have a comfortable normal life routine.

                The value of life is not based on how long we live but how much we contribute to others in our society”
