       Gabutu, Port Moresby, PNG, 01-06-22 -- Don Bosco Technical School, Gabutu had their Intramurals opening on Tuesday 24 May 2022 after the solemn Eucharistic Celebration of Mary Help of Christians.

       The different year levels including the staff showcased their talents through their creative banners and on-field demonstration. Each of the eight teams had one of the following saints painted on their banners – St Tarcisus, St. Calungsod, St. Charles Lwanga, St. Frassati, St. Sanchez, St. Acutis and Bl. Zeferino – leading them onward as they marched onto the field.

       Despite the blazing sun the students, Salesians and Salesian educators lined up for the start of the program. The national anthem and pledge were led by Leon Nebanat of Gr.12 Rinaldi, President of the Savio Club. The Opening prayer was then led by Raphael Dargam of ITC2 MVMA, Religious Prefect.

       In his opening remarks, Fr. Pedro Sachitula sdb, Rector of DBTS, encouraged the participants to take part in the different sporting codes and show their leadership skills. He reminded them of the objective of the day, which was to allow everyone to get to know themselves, their friends and to have fun together as a community, contributing wherever they are placed.

       “Let us also use this day to celebrate with gratitude to God for good health and the freedom we now enjoy as it has been two years since we came together for celebrations as this due to Covid. If you find yourself always winning, give space to others to also win so everyone is happy”, he added.

       Jeremiah Tenakanai of ITC2 Electrical A, Sports Prefect then led the entire school in the Oath of Sportsmanship.

       Suspense built up as the intramurals torch was carried through the wind by representatives of the different year levels. The Principal of DBTS, Mr. Martin Dai, then lit the main torch signifying unity, teamwork, honesty, and sportsman. Fr. Pedro then declared the intramurals open as everyone cheered with joy.

       The field demonstration then commenced, and each team battled it out in the main arena. The judges were: Br. Thomas sdb, Ms. Theresa, Salesian volunteer and Br. Philip, diocesan cleric. It was a difficult task for the judges as each team displayed tremendous talent and skills in dance patterns and synchronized moves.

       After lunch the different sporting activities - outdoor to indoor: basketball, volleyball, soccer, futsal, rugby touch, soccer table and darts commenced.

       The intramurals is an annual celebration held on the Feast of Saint Dominic Savio on May 6. This year it was pushed to the Feast of MHC on May 24. It is an event held to foster friendship, Salesian family spirit and good sportsmanship. The games continue in the weeks ahead.
