The Color Games are the Salesian Olympics celebrated every year during the Day of Saint John Bosco in all Technical Schools. After Christmas time, students and teachers know already that January is the “month of Don Bosco” and it is full of many meaningful activities to remember the life and mission of Don Bosco (1816 – 1888) in favor of young people from poverty. Students watch every year the Don Bosco movie (3 hours) that was doubled in Khmer language by the Don Bosco Audiovisual Center of Sihanoukville in 2008. The Color Games includes 4 color teams (yellow, blue, pink and red), with youth meaning such as hope, courage, love and human values.
