BIS #2295 REMEMBERING OUR FOUNDER

Neelam Rodrigues

BORIVLI, FEBRUARY 22, 2011: The birthday of Robert Baden Powell, the founder of scouting movement was celebrated with much animation in Don Bosco High School, Borivli, on February 22, 2011.

The program began with the hoisting of the Bharat scouts and Guides flag, followed by the singing of the prayer and flag song. A couple of speeches delivered by the scouts enhanced our knowledge on this movement. A patriotic dance and song was an icing on the cake.

A small skit highlighting the duties of a scout was presented very efficiently. It was nice to see the scouts of std. IX actively participate in building the tents, pioneering gadgets, and making miniature projects. All these projects were displayed for the other class boys to witness.

It was indeed a splendid effort on the part of our scout masters, sir Nelson and sir Mark to have taken up this mission. One could see the curiosity on the faces of the younger students as they learned some new concepts and improved their familiarity about scouting.

We also seized this opportunity to felicitate the eight boys who participated in the Jamboree at Hyderabad and the other scouts who attended the Boscoree. The function ended with an advice from our manager and our dear Principal to all the scouts to live up to the ideals of scouting.

Good going scouters!!!! Keep it up!
