As the College geared up to celebrate the birth of Christ, the Students’ Union took the initiative to spread the Christmas spirit by organizing fun activities over 3 days, from 20 -22 December 2016. A carol singing competition was held which saw 7 diverse teams come together in song and dance. The students were thrilled to join in the merriment.

A unique initiative titled “Project Woods” was curated to deal with the after-effects of the destruction caused by Cyclone ‘Vardah’, by fashioning resourceful and handy products out of the College’s natural reservoir of logs, twigs, leaves, etc. It was a delight to see the various creative items made by students from lamps to decorative ornaments, tiny Christmas trees, and bouquets which were exhibited in the OAT for all to admire. The cherry on the cake was a grand installation of The Crib that was built by the Visual Arts department in collaboration with the Students’ Union and the Enviro Paw Pals club.
The last working day before the college closed for the season’s hols, was a day to share joy and cheer through a small programme at which, Dr. Agnes Fernando, former Vice Principal and Head of the UG department of English gave the Christmas message. An energetic cultural performance was put up by various clubs - Western Dance, Classical Dance, Folk Dance, Western Music , Light Music and Mime, concluding with carol singing. With seasons’ greetings being exchanged and everyone preparing for the blessed occasion, it sure was beginning to look a lot like Christmas….
