Governor Surjit Singh Barnala being briefed about a model at the expo on Thursday.
CHENNAI: Governor Surjit Singh Barnala on Thursday underscored the need for educational institutions to be more research-oriented and not mere centres of learning.
He was speaking after inaugurating ‘Bhoomi-2009,’ an exhibition on earth and astronomy at Sri Vidhya Academy International Residential School in Sokkanallur, off Poonamallee Bypasss Road.
The educational institutions must create awareness of environment conservation and hygiene among the students. Lauding the efforts of Sri Vidhya Academy, he said that the institution not only nurtured potential of the students but also inculcated a sense of responsibility among them to preserve nature.
Mr. Barnala laid the stone for an indoor auditorium at the school. The exhibition showcased various models on a range of topics from four seasons to global warming. Models of weather parameters, including rain gauge, were on display besides exhibits on natural disasters. School chairman Nanjil R.Kennedy and principal S.Muthukrishnan participated.
