In his inaugural address, he exhorted the children to grow as upright citizens and God-fearing children. Rev. Fr. Babu Manissery welcomed the gathering and Rev. Fr.

The formal inauguration was followed by the prize distribution where the students who received first prize for the youth festival were awarded with certificates and trophies.

The grand celebrations of the children’s day in the Don Bosco Youth Centre started with the Pallet Pals Painting Competition organized in the Children’s Park, Ernakulam on 15th Sunday 2009. The competition was inaugurated by Rev. Fr. Joffie Puthuva, the director of the youth centre. The competition began at 10:30 am. This was indeed one of the well attended programmes where several children exhibited their talents. All those who participated were given prizes.
The second episode of the children’s day at the youth centre was at 02:30 p.m., when about 400 children gathered together for the painting competition organized in the youth centre hall. In fact the judges found it pretty hard to make the judgments as the contestants were fighting shoulder to shoulder.
On the same day Don Bosco, Vaduthala witnessed yet another mega event, KID’S EVE ’09. This Twelfth Kid’s Eve was celebrated with more elegance and grandeur, owing a lot to the praiseworthy efforts of Br. Josh Kanjooparambil SDB and the Inters group of the youth centre. In the evening Sonu-Monu (the twin cine artists, the ANNANTHAMBI fame) inaugurated the Kids’ Eve. Rev. Fr. Joffie Puthuva presided over the function. After the inauguration there was a smiling competition, attended by over 200 children in four categories. From among the winners of each category, the Baby King’09 and the Baby Queen’09 were selected. At the end of the programme Rev. Br. Philip Vakkaparambil gave away the prizes.
