The boarders of the Boys Home celebrated Savio Nite on the 5th July 2010. Br. Brenden had a number of Savio games, puzzles, quizzes, group songs and ads for the occasion. The boarders were indeed delighted to participate in the Nite and it was something very new for the new comers who at first seemed lost with what had to be done. They soon took an active part in the nite that went on till after 11.00 pm.
Master Nigel Rodrigues welcomed the gathering and introduced the occasion.
