BIS #6519 Don Bosco Lonavla children's day prayer
by Cleric Ambrose Monteiro for BISMumbai
“There is no garden as beautiful as childhood... We were all children once. We all share the desire for the well-being of our children, which has always been and will continue to be the most universally cherished aspiration of humankind."
A day honouring childhood focuses on children and their enjoyment. The day, commonly known as ‘Children’s day’ is celebrated to pay tribute to the legendary freedom fighter and the first Prime Minister of Independent India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, popularly known as ‘Chacha Nehru.’
Keeping this in mind, today was celebrated as Children’s day at Don Bosco High School and Junior College, Lonavla for all the students from classes V to XII on Monday 15 November 2021. The day began with a holistic prayer service which included an introduction of Chacha Nehru, followed by a hymn, scripture reading, reflection, intercessions and conclusion.
To make the occasion more joyful, games were conducted by teachers online which created excitement and fun among the students. Finally the celebration came to an end where the students thanked their respective class teachers.
