The tiny tots of Don Bosco English Medium KG section (LKG/UKG) enjoyed thoroughly their annual sports meet with loads of fun on January 20.
The wonderful sports event began with a school band escorting the honourable dignitaries of the day to the stage namely Fr Stany Tauro, correspondent, Fr Mahesh D’Souza, principal, Babita Aras, chief guest of the day, president, Mahila Mandal Shirva, Wilson D’Souza, vice-president, Pastoral Council, Leena Machado, secretary, Pastoral Council, Melwyn Aranha, Julian Rodrigues and Gilbert Corda. A beautiful prayer song was rendered by little kids invoking God’s blessings.
Fr Stany Tauro in his address to the little kids praised them for their wonderful march fast and wished them a wonderful day ahead and requested them to enjoy the sport day by participating in all sport events. He also thanked Fr Mahesh D’Souza for organizing such a great event and wished him all success.
Irine Rodrigues welcomed the gathering and the little kids offered roses to the honourable dignitaries. Flag hoisting ceremony held thereafter and Babita Aras declared sports event open.
On the auspicious occasion Babita was honoured by the dignitaries by a shawl, fruit basket, garland and a memento.
The honourable chief guest speaking to the kids said that the march fast by little kids was very impressive. “I remember my childhood days, when we used to play a lot with school friends out in the open and our neighbour kids until we are tired. Unfortunately, that trend has vanished now and nowadays kids only play on their mobiles rather than play on ground.” She thanked Fr Mahesh and the staff for organizing this sport event so that the little kids enjoy open on the play ground and requested parents to encourage them to play all the time.
Fr Mahesh announced the winners of the march fast. Not to discourage any kid all the four LKG/UKG girls and boys were declared the winners and Babita gave away the winning trophies to the smiling kids.
Emilia Santhos rendered the vote of thanks.
Ivin D’Souza conducted the programme.
After the inaugural function, sports events were held which was thoroughly enjoyed by all the kids.
