He reminded the students that every religious text, be it Hindu, Christian or Muslim, called upon their followers to be good Hindu, Christian and Muslim. Recent developments in Mangaluru such as moral policing were a blot to the communal harmony that this place was known for, he added.

In his presidential address, Rector of St Aloysius Institutions, Fr Denzil Lobo called upon the outgoing 7th standard students to be focussed on their goal. He said that they must always keep the goal ahead of them, with the guru (teacher) guiding them from behind.
