NERUL-MUMBAI, JULY 23, 2014: Don Bosco Senior Secondary School, Nerul organised the Monsoon Sports Festival on July 19, 2014 from 10a.m to 12 noon. The event was organised on the School Ground. The objective of the Monsoon Sports Festival was to instill the values of team spirit, cooperation and sportsmanship in the students. Playing in the rain also gave them an opportunity to be one with nature.
Students of Classes VI, VII, VIII, IX and X were divided into Groups A,B,C and D respectively. The students of each group were further divided according to their houses. Games such as Basketball, Ring Football, Langdi and Dodgeball were organised where the houses vied with each other to win the maximum number of matches. The Sports Festival began with the students shouting for joy when they got drenched in the sudden downpour of rain.
The showers lasted only a while yet did not deter the students enjoyment for the games. Most of them had an adventurous time squelching mud and splashing in the puddles. The students had a fabulous time. Their faces were beamed with happiness as they returned home wishing for one more Monsoon Sports Festival. They thanked their Principal, Supervisors and the teacher in charge-Shailesh Sir for organising the event.
