MATUNGA-MUMBAI, AUGUST 27, 2014: A time to shut shop on books and class work, and love what our children love! August 22 and 23, 2014 brought to Don Bosco High School, Matunga, an extravaganza of performing arts: The Bosco Kala Utsav.
The students of classes V, VI and VII kept the audience entertained on day one, while it was the turn of the class VIII, IX and X students to showcase their talents on day two. The two day fest witnessed the students of the four School Houses compete against each other in events such as the Choral Recitation, Group Singing, Solo Singing, Mono Acting, Folk Dance, Prop Dance, Debates and the Elocution. For those not too comfortable performing in front of a huge audience, there were off-stage events such as Essay Writing, Folder Making as part of a Craft Competition, Sudoku, Handwriting and Word Search.
It was mandated that students could participate in only one group event, thus encouraging maximum participation and the opportunity to discover and display a multitude of talent. A host of judges obliged them with their time and expertise to give points to all those who performed. Thus the events had a fair appraisal of quality and performance. The programme ended up being quite a tiring day for the teachers, as also for the big number of students who were audience, as they sat from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm. Nevertheless it was a valuable experience for all.
