Mangaluru : St Aloysius Industrial Training Institute, Mangaluru has got a tie-up venture with a well known sanitary fittings brand ”M/s Jaquar & Co Ltd” for training the students of Plumber (Sani-tech) students. 2nd batch of students under this program graduated today (28th June, 2019). Chief Guest of the graduation programme was Laxmikanth-Deputy Sales Manager, M/s Jaquar & Co ltd. Addressing the students he said, “ From your studies you are now shifting to a career. We are happy that we have contributed in your skill development. Skill improvement adds value to your life. We congratulate the Aloysian Management for joining hands with us for this skill development initiative. Never lose any opportunity in life. Make the best of any opportunity presented to you and rise higher. Implement the knowledge you acquired in your career. Do not forget the organizations which have shaped your future. Wish you all the best”.
The program began with a prayer song. Vincent Mendonsa, Principal of the institute accorded a cordial welcome. Graduating students were honoured and certificates were presented. Tool kits from M/s Jaquar & Co were also distributed to the students. Students of ‘Centre of Excellence (COE)’ were also honoured on successful completion of their course and certificates were distributed to them. COE course is a special initiative by St Aloysius ITI targeted at SSLC failed students. Generally, students who get failed in SSLC exams, do not find any job opportunities and also do not qualify to get into any meaningful career. As a result, these youth are pushed aside and run a high risk of getting stuck into poverty-stricken life. Sensing the need to uplift these students and bring them to the main stream, St Aloysius ITI has taken up this initiative. In this course, students are trained in multi skills. Assistance and coaching is also given to them to clear the SSLC exam. This initiative has been successful in kindling a new ray of hope in the life of these students and therefore has won hearts of the public.
Delivering the Presidential address Rev Fr Cyril D’mello SJ-Director of the institute said, “Blaming the circumstances or people for our failure, is a common trait of a person. When we stop blaming & take responsibility, then the development starts. We don’t have choice on certain things in our life like birth, parents, birth place, family, siblings, etc. Accept the things which you cannot change and act towards changing what you can. Take responsibility of your life. Learn from your mistakes and go forward. Right ideas can change your life. We should not be stagnant at any level, instead should keep growing and rise to higher levels. I wish you all success”.
Two of the graduating students- Rohith from Plumber trade and Vishwas from COE trade shared their thoughts and thanked the teachers and the institution for selfless efforts in shaping their future. Romius Dsouza-Junior Training Officer proposed vote of thanks. Alwyn Menezes-Vice Principal compered the programme.
