BIS #2287 GOODBYE AND FAREWELL ARE NOT FOREVER

Neelam Rodrigues

BORIVLI, FEBRUARY 17, 2011: The staff and the students of Don Bosco, Borivli, bid a fond farewell to our dear students of std. X on February 15, 2011. The program began with a grand entry of the students along with their respective class teachers on the beats of lezium. It was really nice to see the teachers shower them literally with petals as they entered the venue hall.

A meaningful prayer service brought a very solemn mood at the beginning of the agenda. The students and the teachers prayed for the guests of the day, to give them the strength and the power to face the challenges ahead in their lives. The boys were further inspired by a very rousing talk delivered by the Rector, Rev. Fr. Ronald Menezes. A few melodious songs and some foot tapping dances added spice to the event. The audience burst into laughter on seeing a spoof on the famous serial C.I.D. The next to follow was the distribution of gifts to our dear boys as a token of our love and the beautiful memories they shared with us.

Finally, the time came when we had to say a bitter- sweet good- bye to those lovable minds whom we nurtured for twelve long years. However much we want them to be with us, they have to leave. But the journey has not ended; they have only encountered a milestone in their lives.
