 ‘Playing Fields + The Dons = Untold Joy’ proclaimed the backdrop with pride, and two days of unbridled excitement and superior sportsmanship it was, as Don Bosco, Matunga witnessed their heart thumping, mega adrenaline rush annual extravaganza. Basketball, football, cricket, rink football, hand tennis, kabaddi, volleyball, chess, carom, table tennis, fun games, cycling, tug-o’-war, shot put, discus throw, march past, relays and the numerous races were all enjoyed with great fervour, and more importantly, with the true spirit of sportsmanship. Day One saw the entire secondary section of the school participating in an event of their choice, in order to fetch points for their Houses. The secondary school quadrangle was a beehive of activity as students either played their respective events or cheered their House mates on. Day two saw the boys on the field for all the track events. Mr. Edgar Mascarenhas Sr., hockey player of international repute graced the occasion as the chief guest. A keen sportsman himself, Mr. Mascarenhas urged the students to avail of the opportunities offered by the one school in Mumbai with the best sports infrastructure and the biggest grounds to boast of. The two days of sporting activity resulted in the Red House being the overall winners, but as every true Boscoite will be quick to affirm, the Bosco Sports Fest resulted mainly in the glory of sports, thoroughly enjoyed by all.
