Growing up, Children’s Day would always be one of those special days in schools — from food packets, to fun games planned by teachers, to those hours of fun in school. Alas! This wasn’t the case this year. However, at St. Dominic Savio High School, trust every occasion to be a special one and so was this Children’s Day.
The program, held on 11th November 2020, was well planned. It began by invoking the blessings of the Almighty on our little young Savions. Our Rector & Manager, Rev. Fr. Brian Moras, in his address, enlisted numerous ways and activities to enjoy childhood meaningfully and joyfully, while our Principal Ms. Valerie Mascarenhas, refreshed the young minds with the history behind Children’s Day and shared a few inspiring words.
Then came the most awaited part of the program – the fun games. The teachers had planned some very interesting, entertaining and energetic games for our savions. From scavenger hunt to dumb charades, human housie to zoom out; from word puzzles to riddles, our Savions enjoyed every bit of every game played.
“Very good, excellent, amazing, stupendous,” are some of the many adjectives used by our savions to describe the virtual celebrations.
“It was a very nice session. We played many games. It was an unforgettable experience,” said Mast. Parth Prajapati, a student of STD VI. Mast. Hansel Xavier, a STD X student, commented, “It was a great experience celebrating Children’s Day online. It felt as though we were sitting in our class and enjoying it.”
Finally, at St. Dominic Savio High School, we always express gratitude for what we receive and our young savions have picked up this value too. “A big thank you to all the teachers for their hard work and making Children’s Day fun, even on google meet,” remarked Mast. Tyrone Dmello (STD VIII).
This day was indeed a distinct celebration and will be etched in the minds of our young Savions.
