DON BOSCO HIGH SCHOOL - MATUNGA: STD IX A-E-F VALUE ORIENTATION
February 20,2014: Today marked the last session for the AVEC Team after a hectic scholastic year 2013-14. Over the course of the year, more than 65 sessions were held in schools with an outreach to over 8817 students and 1843 teachers! The last batch of STD IX students from three divisions, numbering 135 students of Don Bosco High School - Matunga, had the privilege of ending their scholastic year with a Value Education Orientation program.
The focus of the Value Education Orientation Program was on "EMBRACE VALUES: ENRICH LIVES". The session was divided into four parts: The Valued NOW moment, the Valued PAST, the Valued FUTURE and the Valued Problems that one faces in life. The whole session was very interactive and thought provoking. With the help of everyday situations in the life of a student, Fr. Glenn was able to help the young students to care for the Value of their own life first on the levels of the physical, intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social and environmental. Through a well prepared handout, the students were able to make the journey through the 'Spiral of Life' and the 'Wheel of Life' and to discover who they are, were and ought to be in the future.
It was an insightful session, a real window in one's personal life and the students really took the entire session very seriously and cooperatively. At the end of the session, a number of students came forward to write their impressions in the AVEC appreciation log book:
