Children’s Day Celebrations at DBHRDC, Gagillapuram

16 November 2015

110 children from three villages around Gagillapuram – Lakshmipatigudem, Vavirala and Annaram – participated in the Children’s Day celebrations organized on Sunday, 15th November 2015.

The day was full of fun, learning and entertainment with a chirpy group of over 250 children in the age group of 10 to 16. Apart from the children of BSK-run tuition centres, there were 20 children from Adorers Convent, 58 from Holy Trinity Parish, Begumpet and 68 NSS volunteers from St.Francis College, Begumpet.

5 priests from the Gagillapur Parish and School gave inspirational and motivational talks on responsibilities of children, the need to set goals in life and work towards it. Members of the Children’s Parliament gave a demonstration of how they conduct their weekly parliamentary sessions, hold discussions and make resolutions. It was an enlightening moment for the other children who were not aware of this unique concept.

In the afternoon, the children had a session on film appreciation where three children’s films were screened. Thereafter, it was all fun and games. There were several group activities and sports conducted by the DB Tech Students of DBHRDC, Gagillapuram.

The entire day was held in the beautiful premises of DBHRDC. At the end of the day the whole programme was successful due to the diligent efforts put in by Fr.P Arul Das – Director of BSK, Mr. Anthony – In-charge of DBHRDC, Mr.S Ambedkar – Coordinator of Children’s Parliament, staff, teachers and sisters from Adorers Convent who collaborated to make it a memorable day for the children.
