Photo coverage: Prescilla
The 11th session of Domina Angels was held on 26th April, 2014, at ‘Samudra Restaurant-Party Hall’ (temporary venue) in CBD Area, Ruwi.
First time in the history of Domina Angels a record absenteeism ~ 10 gaveliers was reported, most of them away on a weekend holiday with their family. Ms. Krishna was registered as a new member. The Dominites present at the session were well prepared for their roles as advised by their mentors. Well done Gaveliers… A way to move ahead….
As a matter of fact, couple of gaveliers had not reported their absenteeism; therefore waiting for them delayed the proceedings…! Not a healthy affair at any Gavelier Sessions… as punctuality and time management is the prime quality of a Gavelier and is mandatory to follow.
Stand-in (Acting) Sergeant at Arms Gav Pearl Menezes opened the meeting for the day…She is a talented gavelier who displays confidence in whatever she does… Job well done Gav Pearl.
Subsequently, SAA Gav Pearl invited the President of the Club Gav Omari to carry on with the proceedings. In her usual wit and flair…, Gav Omari introduced the theme of the session ‘Festivals’ and shared a bunch of information about ‘Festival’ celebrated in different regions, countries and communities. Well Presented Gav. Omari… Keep up the good work.
The surprise of the session was Gavelier of the Day. Gav Joel Lobo… a talented, senior gavelier of Ana Gaval Club… studying in ISWK – 10th Grade, s/o. TM Judy Lobo a Dominite, was invited to the session as a guest and mentor for our Angels. He anchored the session very efficiently through impromptu sharing, filled with humour and personal touch, flawlessly. The variations, transitions, voice modulation, body language and usage of space… were a very good learning experience to all Domina Angels who are also very talented and fast learners. Gav. Omari introduced him at the meeting in a prim and proper manner. It is worth mentioning that Gav Joel is good at public speaking and has won numerous awards at various contests.
In an interesting manner Gav Joel introduced the Role Players.

General Evaluator – summing up with the entire sessions’ proceedings.
Since the topic was common for all the Project Speakers, there was voting for best Project Speaker, Best Table Topic Speaker and Best Role Player. Evaluators were not qualified, as some did not meet the time criteria or objective of the speech. However, every gavelier who performed their role, did a commendable job as they demonstrated the confidence to take on the podium and speak fearlessly.
Gav. Phiyola celebrated her birthday with fellow gaveliers.
The next meeting is called on 17th May and will be a contest for Role Plays of Time Keeper and Ah counter. All the Gaveliers should prepare themselves accordingly. Counsilors are proposing to have an award ceremony. Membership certificates & pins, along with couple of awards will be presented at this session.
The Meeting venue will be intimated in advance.
Domina mentors always strive to conduct the meetings differently every time, so that the children are not bored and will always retain interesting… therefore full house attendance is witnessed at every session. The confidence portrayed and the preparedness at every session, shows that the young gaveliers are very fascinated to groom themselves to make a difference in their own orbit. That is very interesting to note at this point and therefore motivates and inspires the Councislors to mentor their angels for their benefit.. at large to groom them as good professionals in the future.
