A Day at Dominos

As part of student social responsibility act, a group of students from St. Xavier's College thought of giving the children of St. Catherine's School an exposure to the world of pizzas.

Bernice Priscilla Paradesi, a management student alongwith her classmates took the children from St.Catherine's School, Veera Desai, Andheri (W) to the Dominos Pizza at Thakur Village on 30th Jan. St. Catherine's Home is an associate project of Indian Development Foundation (IDF) a leading national NGO based at Goregaon west which runs an empowerment class for the students.

Bernice who is also the Student Social Ambassador of IDF does a lot of social responsibility activities along with her collagemates. What more can be satisfying to us than giving the children an exposure of the world of pizzas, said Bernice.

A group of 50 students from St. Catherine's School were taken to the Dominos Pizza on Wednesday. The visiting children were given a warm welcome and were straight away taken to the workstation of making pizzas. They were shown the method of making delicious pizzas which the children enjoyed.

Pizzas are generally liked by children and i love eating them, said one of the student from St.Catherine's School. We thank St. Xavier's College students and the Dominos for bringing us over here. We really relished the tasty pizzas which would have been only a dream for us, said the other student.

We immediately welcomed the idea of the BMS students of St.Xaviers Colleges and accepted the social responsibility programme, said Mr. Ravindra Shelar the store manager of Dominos.

Fr. Frazer, Principal of St. Xavier's and Ms. Neelam Shetty, Co-ordinator of St.Xavier's BMS wing congratulated the students for such innovative social programmes. Joining hands with Indian Development Foundation and various other NGOs and helping them in reaching out the havenots is indeed a creditable gesture, Dr. Narayan Iyer, Co-ordinator of IDF said.

The team from St. Xaviers College included Bernice Paradesi, Vinita D'souza, Shalanta Mascarenhas, Disha Rayen, Ansa Abraham and Ninatte Quadrose.

The event was co-sponsored by Hangout Cakes and organised by Mr.Sanjay Waghmare and Mr. Jayaraja Acharya from IDF.
