The students of STD VIII & IX sat upright and alert. Their eyes opened wide, with the entrance of the dapper white uniforms of the Indian Navy. It was a special moment when St Dominic Savio High School was honoured with the esteemed presence of Commodore Ashutosh Ridhorkar,VSM, accompanied by Sub-lieutenant Mayank . This was a part of the visitor programme, which endeavours to make education relevant and real.
Commodore spoke to the boys about career opportunities in the Navy, stories of valiant Navy officers, great leadership, importance of discipline, citizenship and chivalry. His experience and charisma kept the boys interested and curious. The event ended with an interactive Q & A session and the vote of thanks.
We are grateful to our past pupils Mr Vineet Doshi and Mr Jimmy for being instrumental in making this session happen.
