St Agnes College Commemorates 103 Years with Community-Driven Vana Mahotsav Celebration
Mangaluru: In observance of the 103rd anniversary of its establishment, St Agnes College (Autonomous), Mangaluru, orchestrated sapling distribution and planting on August 4, 2023. Organized by the Department of Psychology, NSS Units, & ATC in collaboration with Udayavani, the event celebrated the institution’s commitment to environmental preservation. Esteemed personalities, including Sri Naveen D’Souza, Sri P. Sridhar, Sri Madhava D. Ullal, Sri Naveen D. Padil, and Sri Venu Vinod, graced the occasion.
Central to the event was the distribution of 103 saplings, symbolizing the institution’s dedication to the Save Earth Project. Each sapling represented a commitment to a greener planet, highlighting collective responsibility and positive change.
St Agnes College’s community-driven initiative, “Agnes Towards Community,” orchestrated a one-day visit to the adopted villages of Amblamogaru, Munnur, Kuthar, Kotekar, and Harekala on August 5, 2023. As an integral part of this endeavour, 153 students embarked on a journey to foster community engagement and environmental stewardship. Under the guidance of faculty members, the students planted saplings in designated locations. The students joined hands with residents of the villages and educators to plant saplings across the village premises. This collective effort underscored the commitment to sustainable practices and community involvement.
The Principal, Sr Dr Venissa A.C., and ATC Coordinator, Dr Shailaja H.G., provided unwavering support, increasing the initiative’s impact and solidifying the institution’s commitment to holistic education. As St Agnes College marks its 103rd year, this endeavour serves as a reminder of the institution’s enduring legacy and the shared responsibility to nurture and safeguard our environment.
