Children from the primary section took part in a prayer service on June 15. The new management was welcomed on June 16 and each member was given a shawl and bouquet.
Students- new to the institution- were given a flower each by their class teachers, as a gesture of welcoming them to the Don Bosco family.
Father Vishwas Pereira, the rector advised the students to study diligently, to live up to the school motto, 'Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow.'
The teachers were highly charged following their two-day orientation before school could reopen. Around 40 teachers from - Don Bosco English Medium School, Don Bosco Marathi Primary School, Don Bosco Vidhalaya and Junior College - attended sessions on motivation, hardwork, goal setting and time management.
