CHENNAI: It was a fun-filled day for children from in and around Mylapore. Staff and students of Dominic Savio Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Santhome, organised a `mega fancy fete' for school children, to celebrate their golden jubilee.
Inaugurated by Prince of Arcot Nawab Mohammed Abdul Ali on Sunday, the event featured 66 stalls, several competitions, games and activities. Children with colour pencil kits flocked to the area where the painting competition was held, while a few of them were getting ready for a fashion show scheduled for the afternoon.
From ice cream to steaming hot biryani and small ferris wheels to play pens, there was enough to keep children entertained. There were also stalls with candies, toys, stationery, video and computer games.
Children crowded around a stall with `the tree of fortune' where each child produced a coupon to receive a gift corresponding to the number he or she chose. One child grabbed toys, while another got a cup of gulab jamuns. Another ran away with his favourite cartoon character toy. The school's parent-teacher association was involved in putting up stalls. Eager parents and teachers were busy directing children to different stalls. Rev. Fr. Tuena, who was then the Rector of parent school St. Bede's Anglo-Indian Higher Secondary School, started Dominic Savio Matriculation Higher Secondary School in 1957. About 600 students are studying in the school, where classes LKG to V are offered. The school now follows matriculation syllabus.
