CELEBRATING THE SCHOOL SPORTS FESTIVAL
MY FIRST SPORTS DAY IN SCHOOL
This is my first year at Don Bosco High School, Matunga and my first sports day here. I participated in table tennis with my friend. We played in doubles. The opponent team was tough to beat but we gave our best and won the game. I was overjoyed. I really enjoyed the sports day especially because I won the table tennis match.

SOMETIMES YOU WIN SOMETIMES YOU LOSE
This year the Sports Day was a very special one for me. In the first place, it is the Platinum Jubilee year of the school, and special events were lined up for this occasion. We were seated according to our class and were given caps on which was written 75th year – DON BOSCO LIVES ON. My friends and I were divided into 4 teams representing our houses – red, blue, green yellow. We then played against each other eager to win. We played games such as carrom, volleyball, football, basketball, cricket, rink football, langadi, kabbadi, chess, hand tennis, and table tennis. I participated in kabbadi. There was music too to set the right mood during the games.
After my kabaddi match I along with my friends sat under the shade of a tree, played games and sang and danced to old Bollywood songs; we laughed and were happy for the last time since this was our last year together for the Sports Festival in school. We don’t know when we will meet together for such events. It was a wonderful day. Nobody can take away this time from me- my last sports day in school will always remain in my memory.

AN UNFORGETTABLE SPORTS DAY
We were celebrating the platinum jubilee of the existence of our school as well as the 25th sports Festival of our school. Every year we have two days of sports; this year too we had two days of festival. On the first day we had games like cricket, basketball, football, etc. and on the second day there was the inter-school athletic meet where the chief guest was Rev. Father Edwin D’Souza sdb. The second day program began with the March past by the different troupes. All the seven troupes saluted the chief guest. Once the sports meet was declared open by the chief guest, the athletic events began. The boys and girls from different schools ran different races. Some lost, some won, but there was a learning experience for all. The last competition was the tug of war and our school won that competition and it was possible only because of the combined effort of all the boys. After all, sports is all about team work.
This year the Sports Day was a memorable one for me. I got an opportunity to interact with students of different schools, which was a new and great experience for me. I also made new friends with the students of other schools. It was the second last sports day of my school life and everything went according to my expectations!
