Addressing the gathering, Pius L Rodrigues said a few words: “Some parents are present here for the annual program of the day to see the talents of their children. You are all studying in a reputable institution. Aloysius by name has a brand all over the world today. I am an alumnus of St Aloysius ITI. I learned the value of time from St Aloysius ITI and it helped me a lot in my career.
In his presidential address, the Rector of St Aloysius Institutions, Fr Melwyn Joseph Pinto SJ said: “Once upon a time, who was smart and who was weaker was decided based on their grades in schools. Students who scored above 60% were considered smart and those who failed were considered worthless. A student studied engineering and became an engineer but he didn’t know how to fix the switch or a fuse because he was only studying theory. But a technician knows how to repair the switch or a fuse because he does hands-on work. We must give importance to the development of our emotional aspect because they play a very important role. We all know what IQ is. Today’s world is in dire need of EQ, or emotional quotient. Along with other skills such as hard skills and soft skills, emotional skills are also required and St Aloysius institutions emphasize the development of this aspect. The person may know what components are present in the food, but he may not know how to cook it. We like to eat out. But at last we come home and eat the food prepared by our mother and we say that it is tastier. It’s tasty because she prepares it with all her love, care and affection for her children and family members. May God bless you all and your future is very bright.
The formal program was followed by the cultural program.
