Tercentenary Celebration, a reflection
It was indeed a pleasant and refreshing, break for all the staff numbers to gather at St. Paul’s Hr. Sec. School, Aizawl for a seminar cum entertainment under the Tercentenary Celebration of our founder , St. Montfort.
It was nice to meet all the other staff members of the Schools of Montfort Brothers in Mizoram to gather under one roof and share our experiences and personal thought with each other.
It would be beneficial if we would often have such kind of gathering as it encourages us to aspire higher and also becomes a ground for refreshers course for all of us.

I am very happy to be one of the teachers from St. John’s Kolasib administered by the Montfort Brothers of St. Gabriel to attend the Grand Celebration of Montfortian Tercentenary held at Aizawl, Mizoram.
The Celebration Schedules was fine, complex, somehow spontaneous than I had expected. Not only the religious, all of us had a chance to expresses our inner Montfortian being.
The Organising body as well as the Provincial Superior and the Brothers made the programme solid and I thought it might be an expensive programme, lent it was a fruitful to me. Hence, the real background, initial stages of the Montfort, the Montfortian Congregation, the Mission which were never known has revealed to me a lot. This has impressed me much.
There are many more to say, but let me find my lines by saying ‘Long live Monfortian Education’.

We attend a Tercentenary Celebration at St. Paul’s Hr. Sec. School, Aizawl, Mizoram and were so impressed. We received our places for the Centenary Celebration which took place 28th – 30th September, 2016. It was well worth the wait. We had a wonderful weekend! All the staff without exception were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much a trouble. The quality and range of food provided was superb. Reception, catering and service staff were excellent, could not find fault with any of them.
The presentation of the life of Montfort were inspiring and were well presented. There are no examples more inspiring, more worthy of remembrance and esteem in every age, than those of Saints like St. Louis de Montfort on this Tercentenary of St. Louis de Montfort, his writings and teachings remain ever fresh and inspiring.
Three hundred years of wisdom
Three hundred years of service
With blessings from above
Long live our Alma mater.

The Staff members of St. John’s HSS Kolasib along with the Principal and Vice Principal started the preparation much advance. The yearlong Celebration was concluded at the two day seminar for all the staff members of the Monfortian Institutions in Mizoram at St. Paul’s Higher Secondary School, Aizawl.
The staff of St. John’s had decided to put up a Cultural programme on day two of the seminar when each School was given time to showcase their talents. We had come up with a theme ‘Variety is the Spice of Life’. The Johnian Staff came up with their ingenious ways of depicting various cultural themes that arranged well to elaborate our theme.
Each member had made elaborate arrangement with unique cultural costumes and lots of practice went into wearing whole programme that lasted about 20 minutes into a colourful presentation of a rich cultural fiesta.
