Don Bosco High School - Matunga
STD X : Orientation to Life
November 19, 2013: at the start of the second term, the students of Don Bosco High School- Matunga, were given an opportunity to refocus on their life's journey to wholeness. Ninety seven students of STD X-C/F participated in a very lively, dynamic and open session that challenged the young students to look at their life's journey and to make the necessary 'Qualitative changes needed to make it more meaningful and purposeful. The session was animated by Mr. Rochwyn Fernandes and Fr. Glenford Lowe. Thanks to Fr. Bosco D.Mello, Principal and Mrs. Beatrice, Senior Supervisor for making all the arrangements.
 The session focused on Four dimensions: Listening Attentively, Revisiting one's Past, Reorganizing one's Future and Writing one's Problems on the Sands. The entire session was an open window experience... the students were able to look into the innermost depths of their life and make the 'qualitative changes'. Though, comparatively a very short session of an hour and a half, it was worth it. One could see a new sense of purpose and direction in the eyes of the students.
