MUMBAI, FEB 26, 2016: Don Bosco High School and Junior College, Borivli showcased the talents of a majority of students from the primary, secondary, junior college and NIOS sections during their annual Thanksgiving Day celebrations on January 29 and 30.
The wonderfully coordinated performances included the grand Guard of Honour, which was followed by a medley of Prayer Dances, a welcome song and an action song that was sung by children of the primary section.
Father Ajoy Fernandes, Director of Prafulta and the Don Bosco Research Centre at Matunga and Rajendra Ahire, Assistant Director of Education, Mumbai, were the Chief Guests, on each of the two days respectively. The Chief-Guests and the Fathers in the Management, together with the headmistress, the supervisor, the co-ordinators, the representatives of the PTA and the Don Bosco Alumni were all felicitated and welcomed during the felicitation ceremony.
This was followed by the Prize Distribution during which the academic stars received due credit for their hard-work. The Annual Report summed up all the milestones achieved by the students and the institution during the academic year.
Saint John Bosco was a dreamer, who believed that every young lad has the potential to achieve greatness. During the second half of the programme, the institution celebrated this spirit of every person who has a dream, through the story of another young boy named Joseph, who had the potential to turn his dreams into a reality, through Andrew Lloyd Webber's world famous musical, 'Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.'
Under the able guidance of Father Donald Fernandez, the principal and directed, choreographed, trained and executed by the teachers of the school, the students put up a spectacular performance on both days.
The event ended by giving giving thanks to God for His manifold blessings and imploring Him to continue watching over the school always.
