Much awaited day finally dawned as the Claretian Seminary celebrated the “YSM Day 2020” on 13th February 2020, under the title “Our Environment is Our Life”. The title was chosen foreseeing the necessity to consceintize the young minds on the issues faced by our Mother Earth.  This event marked the culmination of the School Ministry undertaken by the students every year in order to impart moral and value-based education to the students under the banner of YSM (Young Students Movement), while equipping the seminarians in formation with organizational competencies. The seminarians put in their heart and souls to bring the event to a grant success.  The distinguished guests of the day included Fr. Rayappa Kasi, a renowned conservationist, Fr. Joseph Susainathan, YSM secretary, Archdiocese of Bangalore, Fr. Varghese Karukulathel CMF and other speakers.

There were 186 students from various schools who participated actively showing keen interest with innovative ideas to protect and preserve our Mother Earth and her bio-diversity. In his address, Chief Guest Fr. Rayappa Kasi emphasized that the young generation of millennials should unlearn many aspects of consumerist generation where everything is evaluated in terms of economic growth, without regard for Mother Earth. Fr. Varghese Karukulathel CMF exhorted students to make self-discipline as important aspect of life. The students themselves exhibited their aptitudes through various competitions and were given the prizes for further enhancement. This day was one of the significant milestones in the academic year of 2019-20, while imparting to students the YSM values: “See, Judge and Act” in preservation and conservation of Mother Earth.
