The much awaited Annual Sports Meet 2017-18 was held on 02 December 2017 in the lush green premise of Don Bosco School, Liluah.  The good turnout of the parents and other guests along with the pleasant weather were a perfect boost for the students.  Mr. Zafar Ajmal Kidwai, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Howrah (North) graced the occasion as the Chief Guest.  Other honorable guests present were Mr. Angshuman Adhikari, ADM Howrah, Mr. Indranil Chakraborty, Special Superintendent of Police (CID) and Mr. Sailesh Pandey, the parent representative.



The event commenced with the welcoming of the Chief Guest who was escorted to his place by Fr. Tomy Joseph, Rector, Fr. Sunit Kiro, Principal, Fr. Antony Vayalil, Bursar, along with the DBL Scouts.  The drum beats then rolled, the band struck up and the command was given for the March Past to begin.  The synchronized swing of the arms and the sound of thudding feet saw one and all appreciating the boys marching to the tune of the BSF band.  The march past was indeed a spectacular feat.  After the singing of the National and School Anthem, the Sports Meet was declared open by the Chief Guest.  The Chief Guest was overwhelmed seeing the discipline of the school and he commended the school authorities for it.  He also stressed the importance of games in our day to day life.



The track and the field events comprised the races, the relays, the tunnel ball, the tug-o-war, kangaroo race, three-legged race etc.  Rua House won the Tunnel Ball while Savio House emerged winners in the Tug-o-War.  Vecchi House stood first in the grand relay as well as the march past.  Finally, Rua and Vecchi were declared joint overall winners.



The DBL Sports is never complete without its Drill display by the boys of classes 6 to 8. Showcasing their skill and precision, the boys coordinated their formations precisely to form the varied movements which finally culminated with the formation – “The Year of the Family 2017.”



The Sports Meet came to an end with the vote of thanks by Fr. Sunit Kiro.  The Chief Guest then extinguished the flame which finally marked the close of the event.
