BARODA, AUGUST 27, 2008: Don Bosco, Baroda was highly honoured by the first visit of the new Regional Councillor for South Asia Fr. Maria Arokiam, on Tuesday, August 26. He was welcomed and felicitated during the school assembly. True to the Gujarati culture, a traditional Dandia Raas was performed by our students of the Higher Secondary Section. During the programme, the X and XII standard students who secured the highest percentage in the Board Exams 2008 were presented trophies and certificates by the Regional. Speaking to the students, Fr. Maria Arokiam said that his visit to the school was not meant to present himself as someone great, but rather to tell the children and the staff that they are great and important, and that Don Bosco cares for them. He further went on to point out that in the Don Bosco culture the Salesians, staff and students come together not as an institution but as a family. He concluded by saying that he was very impressed by the programme and thanked the students for the same.
