The theme seemed to have been so close to the heart of the students that they smartly got into preparations with gusto and delight. Their active participation was clear proof that the corona crisis did not hamper their stupendous power of productivity and creativity. Their response was overwhelming. Their creation was astounding.
Mr. K. Govindarajan, the Deputy Director of Secondary Education, Karaikal, was the chief guest. He commended the efforts of the school for conducting such a unique event to help the students unleash their creativity. There was something special about his visit to the exhibition; he visited each one’s work with patience and calmness. Moreover, he expressed a keen interest in knowing how each craft was made and expressed his appreciation for the work. He was truly an inspiration to all.
The presence of the Salesian team, namely, Fr. Charles Stephen (Rector), Fr. Williams (Administrator) and Deacon Arockia Anbu gave a lot of motivation and encouragement to the students. They admired each one’s craft work. The array of attractive crafts grabbed the attention of every visitor. A good number of parents, teachers and students from various other schools paid a visit to the Expo. They did feel that the exhibition was a real feast to their eyes and minds. We could hear them talking excitedly about the variety of presentations of the students as they were leaving the campus; it indicated a sign of success. Every little craft had something to communicate. The students chose just ordinary discarded materials for making the crafts. But the way the students transformed them into something ornamental, artistic, decorative and utilizable was mind blowing. Their ability to see the usefulness of the disposable is to be lauded. The exquisite crafts could be produced because of the strenuous effort, many days of hard work and the persistence of the students. It is a lesson that they teach us. Students are creative and they are creators as well. Definitely, waste was made beautiful and useful.
