Charity Drive: Charity is the act of giving help to those in need, to help bridge the gap between people who are willing to aid the less fortunate in positions of necessity. The decision is made by the heart without expecting any reward in return the teachers of Don Bosco CBSE school organised stalls such as gamezone, Mehandi, fun zone, sports, Biryani, crazy games, traditional food items, ice cream zone, lottery zone, Manchuria, fancybazaar, Ariselu, mixed grain chat, water, cool drinks and vegetables stalls.

The parents and students had a fantastic time, the students were engaged in all the fun games as they played, they also visited the different food stalls along with their parents and enjoyed the lot of spicy delicious traditional food items and refresh themselves with ice creams and cool drinks. Everything was sold out like hot cakes.

                All thanks goes to our well esteemed and inspirational Rev: Fr. Bhaskar for the positive and enthusiastic leadership and his ability to energise and motivate all of his teachers, parents and students into making this charity drive a grand success.

“It’s not how much we give but how much we love to we put into giving no one has ever become poor by giving.”
