The students of the Armenian Catholic Mesrobian High School worthily celebrated St. Vartan’s Day, renewing their vow to remain faithful to their Homeland and Faith protection generational legacy.

On this occasion, a ceremony was held in the school main yard on February 23, during which an appropriate artistic program was carried on with the participation of students from different sections.

After the opening speech delivered by Anna Maria Ghazal on behalf of the students, the KG2 students performed a song and a recitation. Next was a performance by the school's Little Swallows Choir, conducted by Mr. Manuel Keshishian, followed by three group recitations by elementary and high school students. ‘Himi el lerenk’ was performed by the students’ quartet and the Great Swallows ended the ceremony with the song ‘Vartanants Asbedner’.

In his message to the students, Mesrobian's Principal, Mr. Gregoire Kaloust, noted that very few nations so proudly remember the ancient events of their history and honor their ancestors as the Armenians do. Nearly 16 centuries later, Armenians proudly celebrate the Battle of Vartanants during which, and despite the fact that, Brave Vartan and his 1066 comrades-in-arms were killed, Armenians glorify that sacrifice, believing, like the martyrs, that "Death is acknowledged immortality." He stressed that the preservation of the Armenian national identity in all its manifestations is itself a battle of Avarayr, the citadel of which is the Armenian school along with the Armenian Church, especially in the Armenian Diaspora.

St. Vartan’s Day was also celebrated in Mesrobian’s Kindergarten and Nursery through activities adequate for children.
