“Caravane de la Science” - Sir Leckraz Teelock SSS


I was at an Interactive Session on the occasion of the “Caravane de la Science” visiting Sir Leckraz Teelock SSS, Flacq. It gives me an immense pleasure when I see students and professionals organising and attending such events that will allow them to increase their knowledge in science which is in fact very important for the development of our young and talented scientific minds. My sincere thanks go to the Ministry of Education and Human Resources, the Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre, the Sir Leckraz Teelock SSS and all stakeholders. I would also like to impress upon the rectors and teachers to motivate their students to participate in such kind of activities. I wish all students all the best as they pursue their passion in Science and Technology. I am confident that they will rise to meet the challenge and be a significant part of our nation’s human capital to realize a prosperous and vibrant nation.
