Mangaluru: The Department of English, St Agnes College (Autonomous), held a student enrichment programme on 22 August 2023 titled “Career Avenues in English” for the students of English Major. Toastmaster Suneetha Pereira, an English language trainer who has held teaching positions both at school and college levels in her early career was the invited speaker and chief guest for the programme.

The programme commenced with a lyrical invocation after which the chief guest was introduced and welcomed by Nandana Prem, III B.A. Addressing the student audience from the English Major batches the chief guest said that she graduated in English four decades ago and she faced almost the same doubts and challenges that the students of today face; she said that the students today are indeed fortunate to have access to a wide arena of opportunities and resources, particularly due to the advancements in technology.

Suneetha Pereira urged the students to take active part in seminars and also get involved in student clubs and such other academic and co-curricular activities as it could help them to develop their leadership skills and contribute to team building skills. She also told them that it was equally important to develop hobbies and master some crafts, just as much as it is important to pay back to society through community service activities.
