NERUL, SEPTEMBER 27, 2011: Don Bosco Senior Secondary School, Nerul organized an 'EXHIBITION BONANZA' on September 24, 2011 from 8.30 am to 1.00 pm, for Classes III to VIII with a view to enhancing knowledge through a `hands-on' approach. Mr. Jose Kurian, Principal of DAV Public School, Nerul, inaugurated the Event.
All the students from classes III to VIII were divided into eight faculties, namely: English, Hindi, Marathi, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Computer and Art/Craft. Each faculty displayed twenty-two exhibits each, in venues allotted to them.
Teachers and experts in their respective fields were invited as judges for each faculty. Prizes were given per group as follows:
Group A - Classes III and IV – three prizes
Group B - Classes V and VI – three prizes
Group C - Classes VII and VIII – two   prizes.
One got to witness beautiful working models in Science and Social Sciences. The Mathematics faculty inculcated craft in their exhibits. The language faculties had puppet shows, role-playing and explained scientific reasons for simple word formations. There were word-building games to enrich vocabulary skills. The Computer faculty used PowerPoint presentations to explain different aspects. The Art and Craft faculty showcased students’ talents through various displays.
This Exhibition Bonanza was truly the culmination of weeks of brainstorming, hard work, creativity and expression. It beautifully encapsulated the ‘Don Bosco Way’ of Expressive Education.
This one-of-a-kind exhibition provided students and visitors loads of information in innovative ways. Students and their teachers from the neighbouring schools also visited and expressed their appreciation as they went around.
All in all, it was an enriching experience for the participants as well as the visitors.
