The Senior Prefects of all schools and other representatives gave some remarks,
The students were happy to meet the Bishop directly and express their joy and some of their concerns to him. The Bishop listens keenly to all of them and gives them the appropriate answers and grants some of their requests as well. The Bishop encourages them to be of good behaviour as they prepare for graduation and leaving the four walls of the secondary school life. He tells them never to throw away the formation they have received.
The students offer some gifts to the Bishop and the Bishop blesses them all. They had some moments to taking photographs and they obviously share some happiness together.
