Can you whistle?
Don Bosco: What is your talent?
Bartolomeo: I have none and I can’t do anything!
Don Bosco: Can you whistle?
Don Bosco: You are good, let’s whistle together.
This dialogue took place 180 years ago, and that is considered to be the beginning of “The Oratory” and this day has become a memorial celebrated in all the Salesian houses in the world.
For this reason the Salesian Institute “Don Bosco” in Cairo organized a celebration with the title “Can you whistle? in the presence of:
–Bishop of the Latin Catholic Church: Claudio Lorati
–And two representatives from the Italian Embassy Dr. Chiara Saul, Consul at the Italian Embassy, and Dr. Annalisa Wagner, Educational Coordinator for Italian Schools at the Embassy.
And a representative of the Ministry of Education in the Sahel Administration
– Dr. Anwar Ibrahim, Director of the Department
– Ms. Samia Ghaly, Director of Special Education at the Department
– Ms. Nadia Pasha, responsible for the talent committee in the administration
– Major General Khaled Al-Shahed, Director of Security in the Department
–Mr. Osama Radi, Director of Relations in the Department.
During the celebration the students demonstrated their cultural talents.
We were impressed by the performance of the students, seeing among them musicians, singers and actors and some of them present digital art exhibitions. The students were wonderfully creative with their talents, and everyone appreciated their efforts. Many the past pupils attended the celebration, as they are an integral part of the Salesian family.
The celebration was filled with love, joy, and happiness.
