On the 10 March 2021, the teaching staff had a unique outing -a day long Eco Retreat at Mount St. Joseph. The session started with an enlightening presentation on 'Caring for our Common Home' by Rev. Fr.Xavier Savarimuthu SJ, Environmental Scientist and Professor at St. Xavier's College,Kolkata. This was followed by a rejuvenating Nature Walk in silence, stopping at various locations to pray for all the elements in nature. A brief session on Pranayama by Dr. Vasanthi,HOD of the Kannada Dept. helped us learn to regulate our breathing pattern for optimum benefits. After a sumptuous lunch, fun-filled group activities brought out the child within each one of us. A delightful day, well spent amidst nature!
