To celebrate this occasion, Master Joel Pereira from Std VC read an address in honour of the Provincial Fr. Savio.
Addressing the staff and students of the Secondary section over the intercom, Fr.Savio thanked the entire family of Don Bosco High School,Matunga for according him a warm welcome in their midst. After the assembly, the Rector Rev. Fr.Crispino and the Principal Rev. Fr. Bernard accompanied Fr.Savio on a guided tour of the campus observing the different activities that happen in the school. The Provincial reminisced the time he spent in the campus for a year as a cleric taking care of the students in the boarding then.
In the afternoon, the Provincial addressed the Management and staff in the conference hall. The In his address, Fr. Provincial thanked each one for contributing massively towards the institution further asking everyone to focus on two points. The first- Are we making our children feel loved, cared for, valued and help them find their place in life? In the race of chasing attractive pursuits, care should be taken not to do damage to our children. The second point that the Provincial emphatically made was – What kind of children are we turning out from the school? It is our moral responsibility to follow in the footsteps of our Father and founder Don Bosco to train our students to be honest persons, who will stand up for values and principles they believe in. Fr.Savio very strongly urged the staff to hold on to this objective and not leave it to chance.
The secondary Supervisor Mrs. Elizabeth Soares thanked the Provincial on behalf of the sataff of Don Bosco High School,Matunga for his presence and guidance and wished him God’s blessings in all his future endeavours.
