Fr Biju Michael, the Principal, in his concluding speech highlighted the study of Theology as an essential ongoing process especially for Priests and encouraged the students who graduated to continue their ongoing formation in Theology as they work in various fields. Drawing from Don Bosco’s words, “For you I study, for you I work, for you I am ready to give up my life” the Principal drew attention to the example of Don Bosco who highlighted ‘Study’ as one of the very important aspects of his priestly life and dedication to the youth. He pointed out how serious study contributed to the success of Don Bosco.

The concluding ceremony ended with a barbecue for all staff and students in the basketball grounds. The next academic year will begin on 17 September 2012.
