"Tree Lovers" felicitated on Vanamahotsava at Milagres English Medium Schools


Udupi : Vanamahotsava at Milagres English medium school, Kallianpur near here this year had a unique touch of its own to the celebration. Every year students take saplings home and plant them. But what about rewarding them for their commitment of the bygone year?

This year the school honoured the 21 “Tree Lovers” namely the students who took responsibility to look after the sapling taken last year. They were rewarded with a memento by the Management for their commitment to the saplings they planted and cared for a year.

 

Students were asked to submit two photographs of the stage of growth of the plant last year on the day of planting and the growth of the plant this year. About 21 students were thrilled to receive the maiden award from Sr Linet D Souza, Superior of SRA Candidate house, Santhekatte,  the chief guest for the programme.

Rev Fr Lancy Fernandes SJ, Headmaster, in his speech said that the initiative is geared towards motivating the modern young generation towards developing committed affection for nature. Mr Steevan Pinto, staff co-ordinator of Vanamahotsava was instrumental in this initiative.
