The 8th Alumni Day of the Past Pupils of the Andheri Unit was held on Sunday, 9th December at 7.00 pm in the school hall. Fr. Godfrey D'Souza the Rector of the Institute was the Chief Guest. Fr. Edwin Colaco the Delegate of the Past Pupils of the Institution was also present with Fr. Barnabe, the Director of Don Bosco Balprafulta.
A number of retired and present teachers were also present to make this a memorable day. There was a welcome to the guests with a floral tribute and a welcome song by the boarders. The Evening Study Girls put up a dance that rocked everyone in their seats.
The organizers then had a PPT on the activities that were held during the year and a short documentary on the Past Pupils who shared their thoughts, dreams and ideas on what the past pupils can do and how they can reach out in a bigger and better way.
Last year in its Alumni day they had decided to start a corpus for the retired teachers to assist them especially in their medical needs when required. In appreciation for their labour of love each of the retired teachers were presented with a cheque.
Fr. Godfrey together with a number of others in the documentary mentioned ways in which the past pupils could reach out to help the marginalized and the underprivileged.
There was the release of the brochure by Fr. Godfrey and each teacher present was given a copy of the brochure.
There was a hamper on auction and the proceeds would go to the Boarding fund to assist the boarders. The past pupils collected more than sixty thousand on that evening through the auction.
The dinner brought the night to a close and it was good to see past pupils of various batches coming together united as Savion for a cause to reach out to many more youngsters who would benefit in the years ahead.
We thank all the organizers of the event for making it a very memorable evening with the past pupils and their families.
We look forward to meeting you once again next year!
