The second day of the Sports Festival was set aside for the inter-school athletic meet to mark the Platinum Jubilee celebration of the school this year. Our honourable chief guest for this occasion was Rev Fr Edwin D’Souza, Rector at the Shrine of Don Bosco’s Madonna, also a proud ex-student of this esteemed institution. The sports meet was initiated with a well synchronized March past of the various houses, RSP, NCC and Scouts followed by the drill displays and the School band. To do the honours of lighting the flame the torch bearers’ team comprised one of our parents Mrs Mary Benson(Sports educator at G.N Khalsa college), our staff members Mr Rakesh Singh and Ms Barkha Shah ( Science/ Maths Faculty), and our student Master Shakshay Pradhan (Athlete/Basketball). The Sportsman’s prayer and oath were led by Master Rajiv Mehta and Master Aman Manghi respectively. The Sports Meet was declared open by the Chief guest, Fr. Edwin D’Souza.
After a short break, the inter-school athletic meet witnessed the Salesian and the neighbouring schools along with Don Bosco High School Matunga vying for top honours in the different athletic events.
