“Give Me Souls Take Away The Rest”… were famous words by St. John Bosco, the patron saint and founder of the Salesian Congregation that have its institutes all over the world. The feast of St. John Bosco is celebrated not only by the Salesian community but everyone the world over with fervor, pomp and gaiety. And so, it is fitting that Don Bosco High School, Matunga commemorates the feast of its founder with due solemnity and grandeur.  Hence, from 23rd  —  28th January, 2017, the entire Primary Section of the school celebrated Bosco Week.

Each day of the `Week` was meticulously planned with activities centering around St. John Bosco. Throughout the month of January, the teachers giving their morning talks narrated interesting stories on the life of Don Bosco. The children also learnt some melodious hymns on Don Boscoi viz. `Raise Your Voices`, `All Hail To Saint Don Bosco`, `Long Live Don Bosco`, from their Music Master.

In the classrooms, the Class Teachers of each standard conducted myriad activities such as narrating stories to students based on Don Bosco`s life, teaching them hymns and songs, passing on information to them about his tips for school children, etc. Finally, quizzes and worksheets were conducted to ensure that the children had comprehended and grasped the true essence of this mighty saint who loved children so very much.
