Celebrating Marathi Bhasha Divas – Primary section

-Ms. Blossy D’Silva

Marathi Bhasha Divas was celebrated in the Primary section on 27th February 2018 as a tribute to the Marathi language and in keeping with the birth anniversary of late V.V. Shirvadkar Kusumagraj.  Maratha being the official language of the state Maharashtra, the main focus of the celebration was to promote the Marathi culture among the Boscoites.

Prior to this day the classrooms and notice boards were beautifully decorated with charts and cutouts to affect students learning.  The day started with the morning assembly in Marathi conducted by Ms. Blossy who gave some brief information about the great poet Shirvadkar and the importance of Marathi language. The students got to view videos, poems and songs to build social skills and help children build Maratha culture. On this special occasion Marathi Elocution competition was organized for the students of Std. 3 and 4. The judges were Mrs. Shewta Shelke, Mrs. Smita Kendre and Mrs. Vrushali Manjrekar. The boys recited the poems with great skill and enthusiasm. Later the winners were declared by the Primary Head teacher Mrs. Griselda Fernandes. The programme concluded with a vote of thanks.
