On the 11th of August the celebrations began.70 priests had been invited for the inaugural mass. The programme was a cultural splendor. The history of the college was presented as a dance drama .The principals of the past 50 years took us back to the times of their journey through the portals of Jyoti Nivas .
Day 2 Saw the entire college in bright yellow,geared up to participate in the 20 km walkathon from St.Fracis Xavier school (the old campus of Jyoti Nivas college )to the present campus in Koramangala. Principals, Staff and Students began the walkathon, carrying the lit torch and the banner of the college, completing it successfully. Day 3 was dedicated to HEALTH AND WELBEING. 50 stalls were put up on the campus to cater to well being.
At this moment we are obliged to thank all those who have helped us in different capacities.

For us Sisters of St. Josephs of Tarbes the overwhelming feeling is that of gratitude/ that we have been miraculously navigated through these 50 years/ by the ALMIGHTY LORD.
Ladies and Gentlemen I conclude by surrendering and offering all that we have achieved to the Lord, praising and thanking him on behalf of my sisters I conclude with the words of the Psalmist
The LORD is God and he has made his light shine on us.
You are my God, and I will praise you;
you are my God, and I will exalt you.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
His love endures forever.
