BORIVALI-MUMBAI, DECEMBER 30, 2013: The enthusiastically awaited Sports Day was enjoyed thoroughly by the athletes of Don Bosco High School, Borivali on the 19th of December, 2013. This year the event had a perfect blend of Christmas themes and sports. The parade had a merry charisma to it, the baton was replaced by colourful Christmas candles and the staff donned Santa Caps.
The day dawned and it was a wonderful December morning. The gentle breeze blew, and the athletes waited with bated breath for the events to commence. The meet began with a Christmas themed parade: the Middle School depicted the various scenes of Christmas, while the High School spread the joy of the season through the parade. This was followed by a stunning lezim routine and a Mass Drill by the students of the Primary Section that showcased excellent discipline. The Malkhamb Performance by the students of the Primary Section was a fascinating display of co-ordination.
The Chief Guest, Rev. Fr. William Falcao then declared the event open. The audience enjoyed the exciting races that followed. The spectators thundered with applause and cheering as the runners of the relay raced around the tracks.
The winners of all the events were awarded certificates and trophies. A surprise event for parents and the Staff was organised. It was the Christmas variant of 'bombing the city'. The last event was one of the most anticipated- it was the mile race. This event proved, like always, to be the highlight.
