Children and parents pour out their thoughts in Campion School souvenir
TIRUCHI: When was the last time you pulled the window screen at the break of dawn to relish the greenery and breathe fresh air? Many would scratch their heads harder to recollect the faded memories of savouring a tryst with nature.
With the world teeming with eye-catching entertainments, nature ceases to be fascinating for the kids. ‘Wisdom in nature,’ a souvenir of Campion Anglo-Indian Higher Secondary School released on Monday, is an attempt to propel students’ interests through insightful writings.
Experience of trekking in the hallowed hills of Eravikulam National Park, short poems on environment and creative strokes of lush sceneries by kids comprised the fat souvenir, which was released by Sr. Rozario, delegate of the Sisters of Charity of St. Mary.
Parents, students and teachers have poured in their thoughts in the souvenir, along with Principal Bro. S. Soosairaj’s writing on his trekking experience in Western Ghats.
Briefing on the souvenir, Bro. Soosairaj said people had forgotten to live with the nature in the pursuit of material gain.
“The never-ending chase for living has turned waters murky, choked nature’s invigorating atmosphere with suffocating gases and sullied her bosom with mindless activities,” he said.
Calling it a ‘suicidal path,’ the Principal observed that the students must be sensitised to the need to protect environment.
The souvenir threw light on countless ways to rebuild the shrivelling nature. Rev. Fr. Gnanam, Redemptorist priest, and Principal of Monfort School Bro. Mariannan also spoke.
