It is indeed a historic moment in the history of the annals of St. Dominic Savio Andheri, for on this day, Saturday, June 18, 2011, with the help of friends and benefactors of the Institute, Mr. Sailesh Parab the Municipal Corporator of Ward 69, Andheri East, was responsible for giving us St. Dominic Savio Chowk.
Many Shiv Sena dignitaries were present and the function began only at 20.00 hours. Shri. Ramesh Latke the MLA Advocate pulled the curtain to declare it St. Dominic Savio Chowk. Soon after there was the prasad with the traditional breaking of the coconut and the slab with the name of our Municipal Corporator was also thrown open to all present by Shri Ramesh Latke and Shri Anil Parab.
Among the Salesians present were Fr. Michael Fernandes, Provincial; Fr. Ajoy Fernandes, Vice Provincial; Fr. Godfrey D’Souza, Rector; Fr. Crispino D’Souza, Principal; Fr. Edwin Colaco, Administrator and Bro. Roshan Gonsalves.
There were lots of benefactors, Cooperators, Past-Pupils, Teachers of the school and friends of the Institute who were present for this auspicious occasion. It was indeed a feather in the cap for all of us at St. Dominic Savio’s.
We are indeed grateful to one and all who contributed in so many ways to help St. Dominic Savio’s Chowk become a reality.
God bless you all!
