    Congrats to all concerned who are responsible for this tour of students from Belgium to visit St. Aloysius. I am sure these students will also visit the Beeri Project . Both the Principals of these institutions are doing a great job.

    Father Praveen Martis and Father Denzil Lobo I am sure will make this project very fruitful and may this be a forerunner of many more students to visit these campuses.

    It is time that our students too are exposed to these kind of studies
