Montfort Junior School students and teachers looked on in awe as a giant balloon rosary floated above their heads right up to the highest level of the four-storey school building.
Made up of 59 helium-filled yellow and blue balloons complete with a balloon-shaped cross, the special structure was created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Mother Mary’s first appearance to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal, on May 13, 1917.

The greatness of Mary lies not in her being the biological mother of Jesus, but in the fact that she was His spiritual mother, keeping God’s word and always saying “yes” to God and doing His will right up to the cross.
Archbishop William Goh shared this during a Mass held at St Joseph’s Church (Victoria St) to mark the centenary of
Mary’s appearance at Fatima, Portugal.
Those who have a true devotion to Mary would be transformed, just as the shepherd children who saw her were transformed, Archbishop Goh said during the May 13 Mass celebrating the feast
day of Our Lady of Fatima.
