Nirmala Niketan College, Churchgate

Nirmala Niketan College, Churchgate
Session for Students

Fr. Leon Rodrigues along with Fr. McEnroe Lopes conducted a session for the students of Nirmala Niketan College.

The session started by a short prayer service which helped one and all to get in touch with their inner selves. This was a continuation of the session Fr. Leon had taken at the start of the year for the students. Frs. Leon and McEnroe continued to focus on leadership. The session was interactive with many games and fun filled activities. The students were helped to understand that a leader needed proper vision to guide his/her team, yet in-order to develop this vision, a fine-tuning of the heart needed to be achieved.

During the session some students came forward and shared their personal experiences.

The session ended with a vote of thanks.

St. Xavier's Fort

St. Xavier's Fort - 10th October 2017

Fr. Leon Rodrigues conducted a session for the teachers of St. Xavier's Fort, CST.
The teachers were invited to take a look on their role as educators. They were invited to forge ahead as makers of the future. They were called to change the collective thinking of their students. "Teachers", Fr. Leon said, "you can make a difference."

The teachers were invited to become aware of their children in class. They were invited not only to become educators but also develop a friendly rapport with their pupils. Following the principle of Don Bosco they were called to 'love what the children love so that the children would follow what they teach."

The teachers were made aware of the present scenario - the growing influence of Social Media on the student. They were told about the 'Blue Whale Syndrome' and how to tackle such a scenario.

All in all it was a very interactive session.
