“Each one of us should adopt a positive attitude towards life.  The youth, especially those in the age group of 12 to 17 years must give positive strokes to their mind by saying everyday “I Can, I Shall, I Will’.”  Welcoming the students to the training, Fr Oswald Monteiro, the Director of CODP, also encouraged them to think, speak and act positive in their day-to-day life.  He expressed hope that the training would benefit them in studies and also wished them well in their future.
