While the rest of the city was busy with provincial day celebrations, the Don Bosco Technical School in Port Moresby today celebrated Parents Day.
Parent’s day was part of the schools celebration of its 29th foundation day, the school rector’s birthday and the presentation of report cards to parents.
Finally after 7 years the Don Bosco Technological Institute held its Cultural Show.
The main objectives for the event was to uphold PNG’s diverse culture as well as appreciating other international cultures in our community and to raise funds for a school bus to assist students who travel from distant areas and those experiencing PMV issues.
The cultural show started off with a presentation and parade of Contestants from different parts of the country in their traditional attire.
Traditional houses were also part of the event and were built by students showcasing provincial traditional art.
DBTI SRC President Brendon Kaita, said the cultural show was a way for students to appreciate their culture as well as help themselves.
Kaita says the school is planning to have another cultural show next year this time they’re hoping for the event to be staged for two days.
