DAKOR, JUNE 14, 2019: Don Bosco English Medium School Dakor opened its new academic year with an inaugural prayer service on June 10. 

The service consisted of prayer songs, action songs, and an offertory procession. At the procession, clay and seeds were offered. Clay symbolised the willingness to be moulded into better people and seeds reminded of the potential humans have of making their lives yield fruit for the betterment of humanity. 

Father Bastin Thomas, the Rector, welcomed everyone and stressed that children are a blessing for the institution. Father Justus Mendis, the Principal, then introduced the new teachers to the students and thanked the teachers for the organisation of the prayer service.

The students were glad to be back to school and meet their friends. Arya Parmar, a student of standard four, said, “This is where I belong. My school is my home”.
