DON BOSCO HIGH SCHOOL, BORIVILI: STD X VALUE ORIENTATIONAugust 28, 2012: The AVEC Team today organized a One-day Value Orientation Program for One Hundred and Twenty Three Students of Standard Ten at Don Bosco High School, Borivili. The session began with a word of appreciation and welcome from Fr. Allwyn Misquitta, Administrator and acting principal of the school. The theme for the day’s session was “Lead your Life by a Value Compass”. The session was divided into three sections.
In the first section, Mr. Rochwyn Fernandes, AVEC Program Coordinator, invited the students to join in a prayer song ‘Sarveshaam Swastir Bhavatu’ that invoked God’s blessings of peace, prosperity, love, joy, fullness, health on everyone. This was followed by a moment of fantasy meditation. The students were asked to focus on their breath and visualize an inner journey to bliss and restfulness. The session truly enabled the students to relax and calm down. Mr. Fernandes then introduced Fr. Glenn to the students.
The final part of the session was the culmination. The students were challenged to ‘Reset their Clock and Reset their Life’ by focusing on what was worth living for and dying for in one’s life and investing one’s personal time on it. “Resetting the clock and compass was a sure path to transform your ‘trashed up past life’ to discovering the treasure within the future ahead of you. The students took the time to make three commitments that would enable them to become MAD – Make A Difference!
On behalf of the students, Dhruv Dholakia and Bravin Fernandes proposed the vote of thanks. Students Kunj Rawani, Karan Mody, Rahul Tauro also came forward to express their appreciation for the day’s Value Orientation Program. Fr. George Carlos, Principal of the school was also present for the ending. He too, took the time to thank the AVEC Resource team for a wonderful session with the students.
