Yellow House Celebrates ‘School as a Family’
-Mrs. Elizabeth Soares
The Yellow house family considered themselves privileged to celebrate loving kindness in action with the entire Don Bosco School family with the celebration on Yellow house day on 9th Feb 2018. Shades of yellow that signified brightness and happiness enveloped the school campus. The school interiors looked captivating with yellow charts bearing beautiful quotes on the family spirit in school. The rangoli decoration at the entrance with marigold flowers and the student usher representatives of the Yellow house made every school family member welcome to their home – the school. It spelt a sense of belongingness. Every school staff member was welcomed with the message tag that read ‘Consider myself privileged to belong to the Big Don Bosco Family’. In the staff room, the entire staff together as one looked beautifully clad with yellow outfits. And the welcome drink of the yummy pineapple flavour refreshed the feeling in the air.
The morning assembly began with the prayer service invoking the presence of God and thanking Him for the wonderful family feeling. This service was followed by the creative presentation of the theme through the creatively named Big Don Bosco FM 09 Radio Station .The RJ’s for the morning was a team of two students along with a teacher from the yellow house. The RJ’s with the script and the tracks selected for listening pleasure enthralled the entire school family with apt songs from the present and the yester years. Music filled the air and the young cute students of the yellow house from Std 5 danced with the Management and representatives of the family making the moment truly a treat to every heart. Fr. Rector on behalf of the Principal and Vice -Principal dedicated the special English track ‘Tie a Yellow Ribbon’ to the entire school family. The non-teaching staff along with the teaching staff sang to the karaoke -Tera mhujse hai pehele. Towards the end of the dedicated time everyone joined in singing the track – Hum saath saath hai. The day continued with a short power point presentation in every classroom. Later on during the break we had the cutting of the cake with the management and the Yellow house representatives. The ‘minute to win it’ games were conducted for the students with song tracks playing during the lunch break.
It was indeed a meaningful school family day that connected hearts together. Blessed to belong to the Big Don Bosco Family!
