HISTORICAL MOOT COURT

Christ Junior College Model United Nations Society on 2nd, 3rd and 6th of August held its first ever edition of the Historical Moot Court under the guidance and support of the teacher coordinator Ms Dolly Martin. 

The event comprised three rounds – firstly, 24 duo teams faced off in a turncoat round where one of the duo had to represent for the topic and the other against the same, allowing only 10 teams to move ahead to the second round of media trials. In the second round, the teams were furnished with a press update. They had to deliberate upon it by taking sides and managing to convince the judges and the audience through their orating skills, logical arguments and so on.

The competition saw an influx of participation from law enthusiasts who hustled through two elimination rounds only for two victorious teams to reach the finals as prosecutor and defendant for the infamous criminal case of Lt. Anil Kumar versus INA judged by Christ Junior College alumni and law students Calvert Nazareth, Divya Govindan and Vikrant Dwivedi. The defendants exhibited their arguments with logic and swayed the judgement in their favour.

Winners – Shrikar BN and Abhay 

Runners up – Sarah Bohra and Kashvi Golecha

Investiture Ceremony and Clubs and Associations Inauguration

“Leadership is an action, not a position.” -Donald McGannon.

With this spirit in mind, the Investiture Ceremony and the Inauguration of Clubs and Associations took place on 24th June 2022. The ceremony took place offline in the auditorium after a span of almost two years with the traditional lamp-lighting ceremony while the invocation hymn was melodiously rendered by the college choir.

The blessings of the Lord were invoked with an introductory prayer by Rev Dr Fr Peter M V and the readings from various scriptures. The gathering was then wholeheartedly welcomed by Dr Shruthi Jose, Coordinator, Student Welfare Office, followed by an address by our beloved Principal Rev Dr Fr Sebastian Mathai, who stressed on the need for holistic development, thus encouraging the students to participate in the various activities of the clubs and associations. The Chief Guest of the day, Ms Chitra Shenoy, a renowned actress and producer, reiterated the importance of working on our talents besides excelling in academics. It was then time for the induction of the Teacher and Student coordinators, who were sworn in by a formal oath presented by Anish Sanghvi of II CAME L. A capturing video presentation elucidated the essence of each club and association. To conclude the programme, an enthralling dance performance by the cultural team captured the crowd’s heart and mind.

The vote of thanks was proposed by Ms Philu Rose Jose, Student Development Officer, followed by the powerful rendition of the college anthem. And on that proud and lively note, the programme ended, as all good things must, with the hope of great times ahead.

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end” Seneca

The inauguration took place in two sessions; the first session was scheduled at 8:30am for the IBDP and Science students and followed by the second session for the Commerce and Social Sciences students at 12:30pm. 

The event started with the lighting of the lamp by the dignitaries and the I PU class teachers and the invocation hymn was rendered by the choir. This was followed by introductory prayer, scripture readings, intercessory prayers and concluding prayer. The Principal, Rev Fr Sebastin Mathai addressed the gathering by emphasizing the college culture and mentioned Christ’s countless opportunities for their holistic development. The second rank holder of the PU Board Examination for the academic year 2021-2022, Sai Chirag B of II PCMB I, was felicitated on this auspicious occasion. He scored 597 out of 600, making his parents and institution proud.  

The most vital prerequisite for the students is to explore and learn new things for their holistic development and training for the outer world. Keeping these things in mind, Christ offers numerous training programmes for the students and Ms Philu Rose Jose, Teacher Coordinator of the Student Development Office, briefed I PU students about the same. Dr Shruthi Jose, Coordinator of the Student Welfare Office gave the general instruction for the academic year.

The cultural team of Christ Junior College performed a powerful dance, ‘Aazadiyan’, which symbolizes freedom from all perspectives, to raise the enthusiasm and spirit of Christites. The event concluded with the college anthem, which rejuvenated the Christite spirit.
