    Thanks to Principal Fr. Anil D'Costa and all the teachers and students for promoting cotton bags at Udupi market. People must be constantly made aware not to use plastic bags which goes against ecology. It is really good move to introduce cotton bags to the people.
    Looking at the another side, it is also a good and practical lesson for the students to know the realistic situation in the market. Most of the children with rich background do not know what happens in the market, by taking them to the market they learn the realities of life. Congrats to Principal Fr. Anil D'Costa and all the teachers for this unique initiative. THE LEARNING SHOULD NOT BE LIMITED ONLY TO THE CLASS ROOM!
