On an average, the national delegation addressed around 1800 students who displayed great enthusiasm during the meet.

Apart from the three institutions mentioned above, the Past Pupils also arranged for the Delegates to visit Sneha Bhavan and Don Bosco, Palluruthy, kochi.  The visit to Sneha Bhavan – the childrens’ home was the highlight of the visit; the inmates of the home are destitute children from the Kochi/Ernakulam vicinity in the age group of 5 to 14 years.  The Past Pupils unit of the home are actively involved in supporting the Salesian community in caring for the children.
