Don Bosco (DB) Liluah hosted Boscotsav ‘23 this Saturday, 15 July. It was an all-day fest, with 28 schools across West Bengal and Bihar participating in 75 events. “Boscotsav is where we come together to celebrate the spirit of healthy competition that not only showcases talent but also forges and fosters lifelong friendship and collaboration among the youth and educational institutions,” stated Father Manoj Jose, Principal of DB Liluah in his morning address.

Speaking to Edugraph, Father Davis Veliyan said, “We believe that education is based on 3 H’s: Head, which is the intellectual part, Heart, which encompasses the emotions, and Hands, which stands for all the activities. Here we are trying to provide the boys with an enriching educational experience.” His thoughts were echoed by Father Anand Raj, Bursar of DB Liluah, who added, “Today’s event has been meticulously planned for the past month, and provides students with the platform to exhibit their various talents.”
