DBL showed true patriotism for its motherland, India, by having a fitting and meaningful celebration on 15 August 2018, the 72nd year of our Independence. The day began with the solemn Holy Mass at 6.30 a.m. with focus on Mother Mary, whose assumption into heaven is commemorated on 15th August. The Christians in India consider Mother Mary as the patroness of India.
The flag hoisting was held at 8.00 a.m. The tricolour was hoisted by the Rector, Fr. Tomy Joseph. The students of Class-11 sang patriotic songs, there were recitations in Hindi, Bengali and English. The flag hoisting ceremony was concluded by a vote of thanks by our Principal, Fr. Sunit Kiro. This was followed by the sit and draw and kite flying competitions. We thank Class-11 students and teachers for organizing it. Our appreciation and thanks to the Scouts, parents, teachers, past pupils and all our well-wishers who gathered at DBL for this occasion. Jai Hind!
