Through Group Discussions, students find out reasons to be grateful to God

4 Feb 19: During the Value Education class, Dr. Jose Palely focused on the need to be grateful for the life we have, through a motivational video. This was followed by a group discussion in which the main points of the video was discussed in groups of five or 6 students. After this, time was given to identify at least 20 reasons why we need to be grateful to God.  It was very interesting to see the youth taking active participation in the discussion and identifying as many reasons as possible. It was an eye opening experience for them to realise that there are so many things that we need to be grateful about.
