The AVA Games 2022 was held on the 5th and 6th of November, 2022, by the Augustine’s Vasai Alumni (AVA) at Saint Augustine’s High School, Barampur, Vasai Road.


The event was inaugurated by Mr. Raphael Dias, father of an ex student Mr. Leslie Dias both, father and son being sportsmen at the national level, were also the main sponsors of the event. Speaking on the occasion, Dias complimented the AVA for conceiving and organizing such an unique event.

The event began with opening prayers by Rev Fr. Neelam, also an ex student. Among the special guests were ex teachers Miss Shobha Hegde, Miss Albina Britto, Miss Cynthia D’Costa and Miss Carolyn, who recalled their years spent in the school campus. Principal Br. Anish appreciated the hard work put in by the school alumni.

The Brand AVA made its debut presence with the introduction of branded merchandise like jerseys, caps, badges and wristlets.

A total of 104 participants took part in the knockout tournaments of table tennis, carroms, box cricket and basketball. Some senior ex students were back on playground after many years. Some people proved that they had not lost their playing skills despite advancing years.

All who participated were winners because they got a chance to once again relive, even though it was for a brief moment, the joys of playing in the school playground along with former classmates.

The AVA volunteers displayed great energy and enthusiasm, making the event a grand milestone in the celebration of the school’s golden jubilee celebrations.

Over a score of banners were sponsored by individuals and jointly by batchmates that co-sponsored the event.

AVA contributed a brand new championship table and racquets for the school students to practice and compete. Ex-students individually and jointly also contributed to the various projects to improve the sports facilities.

The prize distribution for the winners will be held at the next event on December 23.
