The Annual Prize giving of St. Benedict’s College
CollegeThe Annual Prize giving of St. Benedict’s College was held at the College open air stage on 19th October 2015. The day dawned bright and shining, the skies were winking, compared to the inclement weather buffeted by incessant rains experienced during the past week. The occasion was of historic importance as the College celebrates its 150th anniversary of its educational excellence this year.

Very Rev. Bro. Robert Schieler, the Superior General of the worldwide De La Salle Brothers Congregation graced the occasion as the Chief Guest. Very Rev. Bro Ricardo Laguda, the General councilor of the De La Salle Brothers Congregation for the PARC region was also in attendance. Rev. Bro Superior General delivered an inspiring enlivening speech based on few lessons we should grasp from Noah’s Ark, such as, to make sure that we do not miss the boat, and that we are all in the same boat, we should plan ahead! as it wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark, that we should not to listen to critics; but to get on with the job that needs to be done, we must build our future on high ground, that we should travel in pairs for safety's sake, and to note that the Ark was built by amateurs; and not by professionals as the Titanic, and last but not least that we should always remember that no matter the storm, when we are with God, there's always a rainbow ahead.

A large gathering consisting of Reverend Brothers of the De La Salle Brothers Community, teachers, old boys and parents added a touch of solemnity to the occasion.

It was a memorable occasion for those students who excelled in the academic field and in the co-curricular and extracurricular activities. A few entertaining performances kept up the tempo of the occasion.
