We have introduced this year and it will be more effective during the coming years as we now have the database. Here we will keep track of each and every child to see that the child continues to register and attend classes year on year. When we find a child who was with us last year has not registered for the current year we will get in touch with the parents to ensure the child registers and comes regularly for classes.
We have been able to progress steadily and continuously over the years by the grace of God Almighty and the prudent guidance and unending support, motivation and encouragement given to us by our beloved Parish Priest Fr. P A Jacob. Together as a team dedicated and committed to this noble cause we endeavour to give the children a Firm Faith Foundation in the Catholic Religion.
