Sports Day at Don Bosco Wisdom Town
The eighth Annual Sports Day at Don Bosco Matriculation School, Wisdom Town, Chennai, was held on 3rd August 2013 at the Don Bosco National Football Stadium, Red Hills. Hon’ble D. Kandhasamy, M. A., Assistant Commissioner of Police, and Fr. Joseph Jayaraja SDB, Rector of Don Bosco Theological College, Kavarapettai, were the special guests. The stadium, colourfully decorated with flags, buntings, balloons and rangoli, and the students in their smart uniform gave the whole event a festal look.
On his arrival, the chief guest Hon’ble Kandhasamy was welcomed by the school scouts led by the PET Master. A prayer dance was performed by the students to seek the blessings of God on the day’s events. The chief guest then hoisted the flag and released the balloons that floated into the sky as a symbol of the human spirit aspiring for the heights both in sports and in life.
The impressive march-past of the students was a treat to the eyes. The Chief Guest inspected the parade, took the salute and declared the Sports Meet open.
The dexterous Drill Display by the students and the "Don Bosco Vision 2013" dance, choreographed by the well-known L. G. Abraham Lincon of Udayam Foundation were two of the items that captured the imagination of everyone.
Preparations for the day had commenced a month earlier and the entire work was done by the students under the careful and efficient guidance of the staff.
The Principal Fr. Samala Sundar Raj SDB, the Rector Fr. K. V. Sebastian SDB and Fr. Gerard SDB, the founder of the school, were felicitated and honoured. Fr. Jayaraj gave away the awards and prizes to the winners of the competitions.
