Don Bosco High School believes in holistic development of its students. The students put up a spectacular show and it could not have been possible without their ardent commitment towards it. Apart from this, students also took part in various events such as sprints, relay, long jump and shot put while they beat the heat by participating in all these events earlier. Our students learnt the importance of the Sportsman’s spirit, team work, cooperation and self-confidence. The strong force behind this great event was our ever supportive and encouraging Principal Fr. Avin Carvalho, the Supervisors, the Coordinators and our very diligent teachers.
