This was followed by a birthday song sung by Master Jason and group. The toast was raised in honor of the celebrants Master Numan Hashmi and Master Fabian. Fr Henry Saldhana and Fr. Leo Pereira replied to the toast in their turn.

Master Denzil and group presented a dance performance giving expression to the festive character of the event.
