BIS #6572 Don Bosco feast at Don Bosco Nashik

by Diana Coutinho for BISMumbai

"Whatever you do, think of the Glory of God as your main goal," said John Bosco.

A very grand programme on the feast of Saint John Bosco was held in the assembly hall of Don Bosco School and Junior College Nashik on 31 January 2022. The programme began at 9.30 am, with the welcoming of the management, after which Rector-Father Royal D'Abreo garlanded the statue of Don Bosco, followed by lighting of the lamp by the other members of the management and jubilarians.

It was an apt time to show our love and gratitude to our founder father St. John Bosco through a prayer service which was presented in the form of a skit wherein we emphasised that it is ‘not with blows, but with gentleness and kindness’ that we need to deal with the negative situations in life. A video was presented as a memory for teachers Sujata and Tribhuvan who have dedicated 25 years in service to Don Bosco School and Junior College. The words of gratitude to our Silver Jubilarians were delivered on behalf of the teaching and the non - teaching staff by teachers Claribel and Nitin. Then our Silver Jubilarians were felicitated by the management. Teacher Ashoo expressed the gratefulness of the entire staff to the management in her address. After this the sirs, Deepak and Sachin presented a shawl and gifts to the management as a token of love and gratitude.

Father D'Abreo impressed one and all with his words of wisdom. A cake cutting ceremony was held at the end of the programme to commemorate Don Bosco’s Feast, the Silver Jubilee of the two staff members and as an expression of gratitude to the management. A vote of thanks was proposed by the Principal-Father Cedrick Sankul in which he appreciated the efforts taken by the staff members for organizing the Republic Day and Don Bosco’s Feast.

Interesting games for the entire staff was organised at the turf court with everyone participating enthusiastically. Since the students couldn’t be invited for the programme, a link through the school YouTube channel with the video recording of the entire programme was sent to the WhatsApp group of all the classes of the school and the junior college.
