An Exhibition by Students in Departmental lots will be held at the premises of the school followed by a bonfire and Jama night on Friday 1st November 2019.

A Health walk, Health screening exercise, sports festival and a special food bazaar that seeks to create a bond between old and current students will fall on Saturday 2nd November, 2019. A Thanksgiving Service to climax the celebration will be held on 3rd November, 2019.
