LONAVALA, JULY 25, 2011: An Interschool indoor football tournament was organised by the Past Pupils Unit of Don Bosco Lonavala for all the schools of Lonavala on July 24, 2011 in the indoor Don Bosco Lonavala.
Don Bosco High School, D.C High School, Bhonde High School, All Saints High School and Urdu Medium High School were the participants of the tournament. The event began at 9am with a short prayer service, followed by words of welcome by Fr. Cletus D’Souza, Rector of Don Bosco Lonavala. He urged the participants to strive for excellence in whatever they do, be it academics, music, sports etc. This year being the Golden Jubilee year of Don Bosco Lonavala, a series of events have been chalked out to ensure the holistic development of the children not only of Don Bosco Lonavala but of the entire Maval Taluka. The league began with Don Bosco Team A winning the first match against D.C Team B.
The league continued and reached its climax where Don Bosco Lonavala Team A and Don Bosco Lonavala Team B fought their way to the finals. However it was a sweet victory for the members of Don Bosco Lonavala Team B in the penalty shootout leaving Don Bosco Lonavala Team A with runners -up position. “Team B played exceptionally well today although we had high hopes from the Team A” says the Coach of Don Bosco Lonavala, Sir Dinesh. The Chief Guest for the event was Mr. Prakask Purohit the owner of ‘Ashray Resort’ and a collaborator of Don Bosco Lonavala.
The Principal of Don Bosco Lonavala was thrilled that the winners and runners were his own students. “This is just the first Gold we have many more to come and we will fight for nothing less than Gold”, says Fr. Lorenzo D’Souza the Principal of Don Bosco High School and Junior College Lonavala.
