Farewells at Udayan

14 February 2017

It was an emotional farewell to Udayan today, particularly, with the girls in 12 Class (Pratima and Rosalie) as these girls won’t be around for the next visit of St Joan’s to Udayan. Both these girls will return home to study nursing at college if their higher exams (taken at 18) are good enough.

The same is true for the 10 Class boys. There isn’t the funding or space to accommodate these boys for the equivalent of Sixth Form. All these boys will be returning home and to local schools for their 16+ education or leaving school for employment. The 10 and 12 class students are the ones who we got to spend most time with as they are on study leave before their exams start on 22nd February (10 Class), 15th March (12 Class).

Fr Jose (pronounced Joss), celebrated a thanksgiving Mass for us in the Udayan library before the tears started falling as we boarded the bus to leave.

As we leave Udayan this evening we would like to thank all the staff and children of Udayan for an amazing 6 days with them. The experience has been so special to each an every one of us and we can truly say an experience we’ll never forget.
