Today Wednesday, the 16th November 2011, the Green House had its turn for the School Assembly.and had as its theme: Reason and self-belief. 

The House teachers, Miss Valerie and Miss Renilda trained the boys well and they placed before all the students the example of General Michael Magone a student of Don Bosco who seemed restless until he met Don Bosco and shared his difficulties and problems. The programme was filled with song and dance that brought out the theme well.

Fr. Rector in his talk to the students shared with them the story of a young lad Julio who had a desire to be a great footballer and goalkeeper for 'Real Madrid.' He was selected as a goalkeeper for the team and one evening in 1963 he went out with his friends to party and met with an accident at 20. He had to give up his dream. He did not get discouraged, though he was very sad and depressed. He took to writing poems and song and when he entered the first singing competition he won the first prize. The song he sand was 'Life goes on the same.' A footballer turned singer who became one of the ten greatest singers and sold 300 million copies of his album: Him name is Julio Iglesias.
