COLLEGE INITIATIVES

FRANCISCAN GREEN CANOPY

             

Being followers of Franciscan ideology, the College accentuate a transformational synergy among students to become vanguards of green earth.Keeping pace with the Little Flower Value Eco-Sensibility, we train our students to be sensitive to the needs of the earth and environment. We propagate a respectful co-existence rather than utilization of earth. We have an Eco-Park honouring St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology. The College also maintains Botanical Garden, Butterfly Garden, Herbal Garden and Vegetable Gardens. The heritage zone named Victoria Park is a beautiful garden in honour of our pioneers especially Rev. Sr. Mary Victoria the first Principal. Provision is made to segregate and collect waste in different pits. The campus records a total number of 800 coconut trees, 182 mango trees and 468 other trees and more than 1000 potted plants.  The trees planted by various departments and clubs during the Vanamahothsava and Environment Day celebrations every year have increased the green canopy of the Campus. Campus cleaning is taken up earnestly by the faculty and students during the CSS hour every week. All the internal and external initiative under taken by the Institution like Unnath Bharath Abyan, Swacha Bharat Abyan and all Collaborative green Initiatives organised by various Departments enhance the ideal concept of a Green Canopy.
