Mangaluru, Apr 6: ‘You should not fall prey to bad habits, on the other hand, you should make the best use of the opportunities available to you’, said Kadri Police Station sub-inspector Umesh Aiyappa.
He was addressing the students after inaugurating the ‘Besuge Sinchana’, a one-day summer camp organised by St Agnes PU College in association with St Agnes Higher Primary School here on Tuesday, April 4. Stating that opportunities don’t knock every door, he called upon the participants to make use of the opportunities whenever they get. “Not all are as lucky as you are”, he said and added that there are many students who lack opportunities in their life for various reasons.
In her address, St Agnes PU College principal Sr Norine Dsouza said that there was a time when students were waiting for annual holidays to spend time at grandparents place. But in the modern era of nuclear families, many students are glued to the four walls of their house or limit their activities to indoor games or computer games.
This summer camp is an attempt to bring the best out of the students and also to engage in some creative activities so that they enjoy their holidays, she said.
The day long camp comprised various events such as Ice Breaker, glimpse of Mother Veronica, Mojina Rasayanashatra, theatre for daily life, language flair and dance. All the students took active part in all the events.
Nearly 150 students from six schools belonging to the Apostolic Carmelite congregation took part in the camp. St Agnes Higher Primary School headmistress Sr Jyothsna introduced the chief guest and welcomed the gathering, camp co-ordinator Dr Tressie Menezes proposed the vote of thanks. Jyothi compered the programme.
