Let’s Be Friends Day
Friendship day is a revered occasion for friends all over the world. It is a day when people express their love and heartfelt feelings for their best friends and buddies and they promise to stand by them at all times in all circumstances.
The students of the Primary Section of Don Bosco High School Matunga celebrated Let’s Be Friends Day in school on the February 14, 2020. Each class conducted some activities in their respective classes based on this theme. Std. I had a delicious looking chocolate cutout where each boy wrote his friend’s name and what he liked about him the most to prove that friendship is indeed a sweet blessing. They also viewed a video on the story of The Lion and the Mouse which taught them that ‘A friend in need is a friend indeed.’ Std. II exchanged friendship bands which strengthened the bonds of friendship between them. Std. III enjoyed singing the song ‘You can count on me’. They wrote their partner’s name and four good qualities on rainbow strips which they attached to a cloud because they wanted to show that you are on cloud nine when you have good friends. Std. IV had an activity based on a word search and videos on friendship were shown to the boys. All the students finally did the fun filled worksheet on Let’s Be Friends Day. The students enjoyed the activities of the day.
The teachers gathered together in the staffroom to share moments of friendship and togetherness. They enjoyed the lip-smacking snacks arranged by their Head Teacher Mrs. Griselda Fernandes which was planned as a surprise by her. A spirit of camaraderie was prevalent during this small and simple celebration.
Good friends are a treasure. We should appreciate this divine relationship that is based on understanding and feelings.
