The Summer Savio Fiesta 2010 conducted at St. Dominic Savio High School Grounds is indeed hustling and bustling with activity from 5.30 am to 8.00 pm with a variety of sports organized for those of the school as well as youngsters from the neighbourhood.
It is wonderful to see youngsters from 6 to 18 on the grounds in various disciplines of sports. It is also entertaining to see the parents of the children accompanying their kids for these disciplines and watching the progress their youngsters are making.
There are 133 youngsters who have registered for Football and are divided into the Under 16; Under 12; Under 10 and Under 8.
