August 14th will remain an undeletable day in the memories of the auxilians as the yearlong celebration of bicentennial of Don Bosco’s birth had its culmination with the closing ceremony spearheaded by red house who had inaugurated it as well. The solemn ceremonial was launched with a slow parade led by the school captain, vice captain and the four captains with the portrait of Don Bosco with an entourage of little girls showering rose petals on the portrait giving a sort of heavenly reverie. Sr. Stella garlanded the picture and Sr. Rosy Veliyan the principal lit a candle giving a spiritual aura where a couple of prayers and self-composed poem was rendered. A group of primary class students arrayed in dance to honour the saint of the young. Three boys depicting the nine year old, teenager and grownup Don Bosco conveyed that his presence is required to bring solace to the chaotic world of the young even today. The maxims of Don Bosco was made a living reality by taking them as an oath by the students. The celebration concluded with the concluding speech of Sr. Stella which was poem illustrating the multifaceted personality and the greatness of Don Bosco.
The great celebration also included the “BOSC – O- QUIZZARD” in which Green House bagged the first prize along with all the other houses performing wonderfully well. The tiny toddlers made the stage more colourful with their “RAMP SHOW” Portraying their love for their favourite Bollywood stars. The final closure was marked by folding and handing over the bicentennial flag as a symbol of the students good will in preserving the values which were which they learned from the multitalented maestro, Don Bosco.
