Poetry is a form of expression of one’s feelings on a particular thought, to express the feeling on protecting the earth a beautiful yet a very strong poem was delivered by a student. We also had songs sung by the students with a beautiful message conveying – ” Stop Deforestation” in Hindi and Kannada.
To express our token of love on Environment Day saplings were presented to Principal Sr. Irene Albuquerque and Vice Principal Sr. Ida Wilma Fernandes which were planted in school garden.
