Addressing the gathering Pius L Rodrigues spoke a few words “Some of the parents are present here for the annual day programme to see the talents of their children. You all are studying in a reputed institution. Aloysius by its name has a brand all over the world today. I am an old student of St Aloysius ITI. I learnt the value of time from St Aloysius ITI and that has helped me a lot in my career.”
In his Presidential address Rector of St Aloysius Institutions Rev. Fr Melwin Joseph Pinto SJ said, “ Once upon a time it was decided who was clever and weaker by their grades in schools. The students who scored above 60% were considered clever and students who failed were considered good for nothing. A student studied engineering and became an engineer but he didn’t know how to repair the switch or a fuse because he studied only theory. But an Technician knows how to repair the switch or a fuse because he is involved in practicals.”.
“We must give importance to the development of our emotional aspect as they play a very important role. We all know what IQ is. The world today is in much need of EQ, that is, Emotional Quotient. Along with other skills such as technical skills and soft skills, Emotional skills are also required and St Aloysius Institutions lay emphasis on development of this aspect. Person may know what are the components present in the food, but he/she may not know how to cook the food. We like to eat outside food. But at last, we come home and eat the food that is prepared by our mother and we say that it is more tasty. It is tasty because she prepares it with all her love, care and affection for her children and family members. May God Bless you all and may your future be very bright.” added Rector.
The formal programme was followed by the cultural programme.
