BIS #6647 A New Beginning at DB Kawant
By Cl. Alan D’Silva for BISMumbai
To implore God’s blessings at the start of a new academic year, Don Bosco High school conducted an inaugural prayer service on 17 June 2022. The theme of the service was ‘Journeying Together Towards Excellence’.
The programme commenced with the lighting of the lamp, followed by a reading from Scripture. Fr Charles Anthony, the Rector and Manager, gave a short message to the students encouraging them to excel in all the activities - both academic and extra-curricular. Deepak Lalu, a student of Class 10 recited a prayer on behalf of all the students. Towards the end of the programme, Fr Rixson Nigrel, the Principal, addressed the students, reiterating the message presented through the theme of the prayer service.
After the message from the Principal, the new students were welcomed into the school by a symbolic gesture of applying kumkum on their foreheads and giving a pencil.
