The 8th Don Bosco Rongali Bihu Utsav was inaugurated on the morning of May 16, 2013 at the Don Bosco Bihutoli at the school playground at Panbazar.

The chief guest also released the 51st issue of the school magazine – The Bosconian. This was followed by the rendition of Sreemoyee Asomi by the school students, followed by some foot tapping Bihu dances by the participants of the 10-day long Bihu workshop (May 6-May 15) that preceded the Bihu Utsav. Prior to this, school administrator Fr. Sebastian Kuricheal, in his speech harped upon the importance of Bihu as a festival that unites people from the entire length and breadth of Assam. An inter school Bihu Nritya competition was also held among six city schools, namely Sarla Birla Gyan Jyoti School, Happy Child School, Faculty Higher Secondary School, Gurukul Grammar School, South Point School and St. Mary’s School.
