'Develop knowledge to be competent'

The education sector is undergoing tremendous changes. Students have to focus on gathering knowledge in this competitive world, said film actor Elton Mascarenhas.

He was speaking after inaugurating the national inter-collegiate fest 'Melange 2018', organised by St Agnes College at the institution campus.

Stressing on the necessity of learning new things and building creativity, the actor said that extra curricular activities such as sports and cultural activities are as important as school curriculum. "It is important for everyone to have an individual goal which surpasses the peer pressure and which is based on personal interests," he said.

College Principal Dr Sr M Jeswina presided over the programme and said that there is no limit for success. Cultural aspects build our personalities, the Principal said.

St Agnes Education Institution Mother Superior and Joint Secretary Dr Sr Maria Roopa, Vice Principal Dr Sr Venessa, Programme Convener Prof Marina Lobo and Student Convener Mrunali J P were present on the occasion.

Students from 17 different colleges in Mangaluru, Udupi and Madikeri took part in the event.

During the valedictory programme held in the evening, St Agnes Education Institution Mother Superior and Joint Secretary Dr Sr Maria Roopa called upon students to develop leadership qualities.

A prize distribution programme was held on the occasion. St Aloysius College, Mangaluru bagged the overall championship while Maps College emerged as the runners-up.
