Reading Week Celebrations (June 19- 26)
Poster Making Competition
A Poster Making Competition was organised by the Book Lovers' Club in St. Peter's College in connection with the Reading Week celebrations. Students were given 3 days' time to prepare and submit posters demonstrating the importance of reading. The poster prepared by Donna Augustine of II MA English was adjudged the best poster.
With a view to promote reading habit among students, a Readers' Desk was instituted by the Club on Reading Day (June 19) which was inaugurated by the Principal of St. Peter's College, Dr. Thampy Abraham. The Readers' Desk is placed near the Department of English which displays an array of carefully selected newspapers, magazines and informative articles. The Readers' Desk provides an opportunity for students to skim through important news and educative write ups with ease. Sreelakshmi Saju of II BA English is the student in- charge of the Desk.
