MUMBAI, AUGUST 24, 2015: The Student Council of Don Bosco High School, Matunga proved its leadership credentials by successfully organising Kala Utsav – an annual festival – aimed at bringing creativity to the fore amongst students on August 21 and 22.
The Council, along with the working committee, took charge of the entire programme, right from the planning stage to the implementation, with minimal intervention on the part of the teachers.
The Utsav included elocution, debates, choral recitations, essay writing events, mono acting, talent events, quiz, handwriting event, word search, sudoku puzzles, art events and the much-loved vocals event.
As part of the sustained efforts to inculcate the reading habit in our students, a 'Readathon' event was organised, wherein each student was encouraged to read a book of his choice in class.
A spelling bee was held, aimed at improving not just spelling but also at building vocabulary. Students also made colourful and creative displays for their classrooms.
Finally, the boys viewed two short films on Don Bosco. Kudos to the Student Council and the members of the working committee for a job well done and congratulations to the winners of the various competitions!
