St Lawrence Church, Moodubelle and St Lawrence Educational Institutions are two different entities registered under the relevent government acts. The parish is not responsible for the financial transactions of the schools or colleges which are run by the parish through individual institutional management commitees, though the parish can appeal the parisheners to donate willingly the required finannces as all these institutions come under its umbrella. Therefore my adivice is to allow them to run their institutions and get credit for good governance or pay for the bad decisions they make. Why break our heads unnecessarily?

Dear Victor Boliye, you are absolutely right. But the question is at whose money the experiment takes place. Certainly parishioners money will be wasted if this project did not succeed. Now a days the construction cost is gone up and in my opinion the management must have spent not less than 1 lakh rupees to this project. Now we have to think do the management really need to take these type of risks ????

Who is going to run this facility? Fr Seqeira? I don t think so. College staff? Never! Students? Beats me! Surely this facility is given on rent to someone who is confident of running and making a profit out of it, if not bear the loss. All that the college admin can do is control the prices. Your child is free to use it and help the caterer to make a profit or shun the facility and force him to close down. Why fret on something which is not our concern? Relax and chill out!

My son is studying in Belle High School. I don’t think this cafeteria business is any of use to my Child, as per my son they get hardly time to go anywhere during the school hours except the noon lunch break. Secondly they have already noon lunch arrangement in the school. I think it is waste and may be useful to teachers and office staff who used to go to Belle hotels to have refreshments during their break hours.

Dear Ronald Sabi, the situation/conditions in Moodubelle are entirely different from Gulf countries. In Gulf counties most of the time both parents are going for work and that too by 6.30am they leave home and come back around 7PM. And students come back home in the afternoon for lunch. Here in Moodubelle situation is entirely different. At least mother will be around to take care of the tiffin. Afternoon school is arranging mid-day meal at a nomial cost sometimes free also. And the school starts around 9.30am and close at 4pm with 30 min lunch break. So they may not get time even to visit cafeteria during the class hrs and recess time. And it looks like an invited trouble.

This is another blunder ...I bet this is not going to work at all and will close soon. Mark this point. Guys do not comment when you do not know the reality of the school conditions. Predictions are good in some extent but the actual conditions of Moodubelle I educational institutes are really not good.

Cafteria in the institution is a good idea and development since students can not go out of the campus to buy a cold drink or lemon juice or a quick bite snacks. People are free to air their opinion! For some people...their children can do it while they are in the city school or abroad. Why such facility for village school children eh??? Generation gap widening?? A few days in a year we are unable to pack sandwich or juice and I or my wife give them small amount of money to buy it from school cafeteria. No one here is forced to use cafeteria...those in need will use it! It is entirely up to parents and their ward! I consider it as an added advantage to the children of the school. I do not think in todays world parents dislike their children eating some food. Because most parents struggle to feed them! End of the day junk food may not be available in such cafeteria. Drawing comparison on Bisiyoota and canteen may not be just! One is available only during lunch and latter is available all the time! Even staff, parents or others can use it when they visit school. I congratulate the management for adding a small improvement facility to the institution. Keep it up!

hahaha...what a dream at this point of time? This is another source of making money and tempting poor students to spend their parents money! What an idea Sirji??
Kevin Dsouza, Doha-Qatar Wed, June-25-2014, 10:10
I failed to understand either our schools got excess funds and management do not know where and how to utilize those funds or someone is really dreaming taking his back seat! when there was a need of these facilities it was not there and now this cafeteria business definitely not made for the benefit of the students. Bisioota already in place and now what is the need of cafeteria? I am sure this cafeteria is made only for the teachers and lecturers. My question is are we going to cover the expenses of this cafeteria? As Mr. Philip mentioned stationary Book stall could be the best option rather than cafeteria as we have already bisiyoota in the same premise. We should be really realistic and understand the necessity of the school to attract more students from neighboring villages by increasing our educational level and get good result to the School. Let us dream about this and not cafeteria or hotel or Cinema Theaters. We have wasted/misused lots of innocents hard earned money in Belle Schools and colleges. At least now someone has to take a serious call on this and make sure our educational institutes goes in right direction and live for long years.

Is the management collectively taken decision to start the cafeteria at the campus. I dont think parents are encouraged to send their children to school because of cafeteria. Most of the students are from middle class or economically poor families. This will put unwanted burden and tension on parents to fulfill their children requirements. I feel it is a wrong step by the management to start caferia at High school/Junior college where the strength is less than 500. Now the question arises that who will supervise the hygienic conditions and quality of the food which will be served at cafeteria. Instead of wasting money on these uneconomical cafeteria business, parents should have been encouraged to send tiffins and strengthen mid day meal facility which is already existing. They could have utilized the money for development of the infastructure works and for providing extra co-curricular activities which are very essential for the overall growth of the students along with their regular studies. I request management to study the requirements properly and take the opinion of the commitee and well wishers then only take decision to utilise the funds properly.

A stationery, book and Over The Counter (OTC) medicine store could be next on the dream list of Fr. Sequeira and Edward Larsen..

Is this cafeteria really necessary when there is "BISYUTA" facility in School/College.
