On August 3, 2014, Fr. Braganza organized the Leadership Seminar for the monitors, captains, and prefects of the school. The seminar began at 9.30 am. The main purpose of the seminar was to uproot the seeds of violence in leadership and become channels of peace. The leaders were informed of different types of violence – physical, sexual, emotional etc.
They were given different incidents and were asked to present how they would react in a non-violent way. The seminar ended at 12.30 pm with a prayer of St. Francis of Assisi and a powerful song of Michael Jackson 'Heal the World'. The leaders thanked the resource person for his valuable contribution.
