The students observed carefully and presented their reports beautifully in different ways such as charts, street play and skits. A session on the methodology - see, judge and act was also organised to make students know more about YCS and its importance and why and how we should implement it in our daily lives.
There were sessions on the national theme and thrusts which is 'young students for youthful life - self-identity, safe school and new society,' human dignity, promotion of life, leadership and spirituality, etc. These sessions were conducted by Fr.
