NERUL-MUMBAI, OCTOBER 4, 2014: Raas Garba Programme (Primary Section) for the academic year 2014-15 was held on September 29, 2014 at 5.30 p.m. in the ground floor assembly hall. The teacher in-charge of this programme was Tr. Chhaya Desai. Approximately, 400 students of the Primary section were a part of this celebration. The programme aimed at celebrating the festival of Navratri and dance to the tunes of the traditional Garba Raas.
The teachers, parents and students came to school in their traditional apparel, making the school hall look like a canvas of bright colours. The students were grouped according to their class. The competition was held among the different sections of different classes. All the students danced to the energetic Gujarati songs. The beautiful blend of thumping music and well dressed Gujarati boys and girls made the campus of Don Bosco Senior Secondary School reverberate with joy and laughter. The enthusiasm was so overwhelming that the parents and the students of the secondary and senior secondary section also came forward to be a part of the celebration.
The programme ended with the prize distribution for the best dancers from every class and the best section among different classes. Lastly, the young dancers, sweaty yet enthusiastic were treated to scrumptious snack. The parents, students and teachers went back home after a breathtaking and delightful celebration.
