The celebrations of the Cambodian Bicentenary of Don Bosco is an occasion to evaluate the social impact of the Salesian works in the Kingdom since the refugee camps. For this reason, there was a Semi-permanent exhibition of the Don Bosco projects. Fr. John Visser and Fr. Roel Soto showing the exhibition to Princess Norodom Aronreaskmey.

The Celebrations included sports and culture, of course, where young people could show their their talents and meet their friends. Teams from different schools met in friendly games.
