Mangaluru, Sep 25: ;Students Day 2k23' was celebrated with a flourish at St Agnes PU College on September 22. This day is an eventful milestone in a student’s life. The cultural programme which was held in the auditorium commenced with a prayer song by the staff who invoked divine blessings on their beloved students.
This was followed by a slew of entertainment programmes by the students. This served to break the monotony of academic life and instilled new vigour and exuberance in the students who performed with pizazz.
The II PU students presented spectacular and hilarious spoofs on movies and tickled the funny bones of the audience. The I PU students had a variety programme where they showcased their skills in singing and dancing to trending viral songs. The students who were exceptionally talented were also given a platform to dazzle the audience with their scintillating and distinct acts during a special slot carved out for them.
Principal Sr Norine D'Souza quoted Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Azad, "A dream is not that which you see while sleeping; it is something that does not let you sleep." She exhorted the students to be focused and not let obstacles discourage them. She also complimented them on their self-confidence and creativity.
Students were also awarded prizes for their sparkling performances in the various competitions conducted in the college that won them recognition and acclaim. The prizes were distributed by the PTA joint secretary Dr Divya Damodhar.
In the afternoon, the teachers decided to surprise the students with a medley of performances and they conducted several exciting games for them. The programme was hosted by Rhema Shereen and Mareena Aviva D'Souza.
