BIS #6877 First Annual Day at Bosco Kids Kindergarten
By Fr Chris Ferreira for BISMumbai
Bosco Kids Kindergarten and Don Bosco English Medium School, Chhotaudepur, celebrated their first annual day on Saturday in the presence of esteemed dignitaries from the district, parents and well-wishers. The school has just begun this academic year, and the event set the standards of the quality of education Don Bosco offers to the young.
Shri Imran Soni, the District Primary Education Officer of Chhotaudepur, was the Chief Guest, and Shri Arvind Rathwa, the Education Inspector of Chhotaudepur, was the Guest of Honour. Both the dignitaries have contributed extensively to establish and begin the English Medium School from Kindergarten to Class 3.
Fr George Carlos, the Rector and Manager of the institute, welcomed the gathering among whom many were his pupils when he began the Gujarati Medium School nearly 30 years ago. The annual day celebration consisted of a cultural program wherein the students of the school performed western as well as Indian dances. The audience was captivated by the cute children as they danced to the beats of the music in perfect synchronisation. Almost all the students performed on the stage and participated in the annual day celebration. The little children also put up a yoga show for which they received a thunderous applause from an audience captivated by their talent. The audience also appreciated a heart touching rendition of the song 'You Raise Me Up' sung by 53 students.
The Chief Guest, Mr Soni, addressed the audience and expressed his gratitude towards the institution for championing the cause of education in Chhotaudepur. The Guest of Honour, Mr Rathwa, in his speech, appreciated the holistic education that the school imparts. The program ended with a vote of thanks by Fr Chris Ferreira, the Principal, who attributed the success of the event to the competent teaching staff. He said: "Just like a good building needs good beams and columns, a good school needs good teachers - my teachers are my pillars, they are my pride!"
