It is during our school days that our real values of life are formed. The holistic education received here in Don Bosco, the bonds of friendships formed, the academic excellence and the discipline helps one to soar high in society. The physical, intellectual, spiritual, social and psychological formation received in one’s alma mater speaks volumes about the individual and the institution.
Don Bosco’s Preventive System, with its emphasis on Reason, Religion and Loving kindness, runs through every activity both inside and outside the campus. Our staff are able to apply this system with ease.
Parents are the first teachers and teachers are the second parents. Parents are ready to spend their money, but are they ready to spend their time for their children? Are they ready to make sacrifices like giving up on watching serials? There is a tug-of-war between screen time and seen time. Face to face conversation is better than Facebook conversation.
If the management, staff, parents and students do what is expected of them in the Don Bosco way, then nothing can hinder us from forming a happy family of Don Bosco, Krishnanagar. Remember Happiness is not one day’s work, but is our way of life.
St. Don John Bosco
John Bosco the father and friend of youth was born on August 16, 1815, in a peasant family in the little hamlet of Becchi, some 20 kilometers from Turin, Italy. When John was only two years old his father, Francis Bosco passed away. His grief stricken mother, Margaret Occiena Bosco, had a harrowing time to bring him up.
To complete his education John had to do his share of work on the family farm and study during his spare time. Working as a servant, teaching, assisting a tailor, doing chores for a black smith and keeping score at a billiard table were some of the things he did in order to pay for his food, lodging and tuition while ate school. In due course John entered the seminary and was ordained a priest on June 5, 1841. From then on he was known as Don Bosco (Father Bosco).
Don Boscos work for boys started with one boy, a masons apprentice. Soon this boy brought others and the number of Don Boscos friends multiplied. He gave them facilities for games and taught them their religion.
Don Bosco called his method of education the Preventive System, based on REASON, RELIGION and KINDNESS. He told his disciples that education was to be based on love, on selfless service for the mental, emotional, moral and spiritual growth of the pupils.
From Principal's Desk
Education is a shared commitment and noble aspiration between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations. Don Bosco School Of Excellence is lucky to associate with all three aspects in abundance on campus.
Over the past few months, I understood the role of the school is not only to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate and empower students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers and productive members of an ever changing global-society. Definitely our school provides the students a vast arena to think, express and exhibit their skills. They are encouraged to channelize their potential in the pursuit of excellence. This can only be possible in a holistic, Student – centric environment.
Our school is striving hard to make the best possible efforts in inculcating strong values combined with academics and extra-curricular activities. In short, the objective of this initiative is to convert every student to be self-reliant and independent. While academic excellence is our major thrust, the School is also devoted to prepare students for lifelong learning, to face the challenges of tomorrow and encourage them to be socially relevant. Taking the strong advice of Don Bosco, “Study to become very rich, but rich in virtue, because the greatest of all treasures is the holy fear of God”. I am very proud of our parents who beautifully understood that education is not only the subject learned and taught in school but also exploring the various opportunities that come in the path of a student. Parents have more strengthening power in moulding the future of our children. I extend my appreciation for your belief and trust in us.
May the journey be a stepping stone to maximize exposure of exciting activities taking place throughout the year on our campus….
DON BOSCO IN INDIA
In India, the Salesians of Don Bosco began their work with a trade school and hostel for poor children at Thanjavoor, Tamil Nadu in 1906. The Society today has over 2500 members (Fathers and Brothers). Its services are offered through Don Bosco University, 28 colleges, which include 2 engineering colleges, over 100 technical schools, and a large network of high schools and scores of non-formal technical and agricultural centers, spread across the country, covering the entire spectrum of social development. The society is also involved in literacy centers, shelters for street children and rehabilitation and relief operations. The government of India has recognized the Salesians of Don Bosco as the largest non-governmental provider of technical education in the country.
At the moment Salesians work in eleven provinces in India and they are:
Bangalore Province | Chennai Province | Dimapur Province | Guwahati Province | Hyderabad Province | Kolkata Province | Mumbai Province | New Delhi Province | Panjim Province | Silchar Province | Tiruchy Province
Don Bosco had a comprehensive concept of education. It entailed helping the young person to develop and grow as a human being and a Christian, so that he could find his proper place in society – a good citizen and a good Christian, as Don Bosco would say. Don Bosco regarded every situation in which he came into contact with young people as an educational situation. Don Bosco stated clearly, “Education is a matter of the heart, of which the Lord is the master”. What sets Salesian education apart from other ways or systems of education is the fact that relationships are of prime importance in the Salesian educational process.
As Salesian educators, we show our love for the young in two ways: the Preventive System (relationships, the way we relate to young people) and the Oratory Model (experiences, those that we create for the young people).
The Preventive System is based on the three keys: Reason, Religion, and Loving Kindness. From this basis, we see the relationships that Don Bosco encouraged: the educator seeks to make oneself loved, takes the young where they are, believes in their capacity for good, wants to be with them.
Relationship creates the experience; experience is sustained by the relationship.
We, as Salesian educators, follow this method.
We work hard to prepare every student for adult life and

Greetings from all of us at Don Bosco. I hope and pray that you and your children are enjoying good health. Because of the pandemic and uncertain situation we have not opened the school and also not able to tell you when exactly we will re-open. I know that children are missing the school and we all miss their presence very much. Now it is important that they do not lose a year of study. That’s why we started the on-line classes. I am aware that it is not the best channel of instruction as it has a lot of disadvantages. Though some section of media and neo-educationists extol it. So parents do not get worried if your children are not able to make use of it a hundred percent. We will try to make up once the school starts.
SYLLABUS: Some parents were asking for the syllabus. So we have sent them to you. Please do not get panicky and complain that it is a huge syllabus. It is full year’s syllabus. We will adjust it as per requirement. What is important at this stage is that they become proficient in English and master in Mathematics.
FEES: Many of you were inquiring about the fees. In this regard I must mention that I was touched by the concern and generosity of the parents. When I told them that we are not collecting fees for the month of May, but only for the rest of the year, they told me that they want to pay for the whole year as the teachers need to be paid. God bless these generous souls.
We are aware that some parents may face financial problem because of the lock-down. So we have decided:
1. Not to charge late fine for this year.
2. Fees for the month of May is optional (Just to give some relief to those parents who may have financial problem) but we will appreciate it if parents who can afford, pay.
3. The fees for the rest of the year will have to be paid.
NEWS: The new school building work came to a stand-still due to the lock-down. We hope to restart it at the earliest. The villa adjacent to the present school building has been renovated for this year’s use. We are getting two more class rooms, one new toilet for the girls and a small play area. We have added 6 stacks and more books to the library. We are awaiting the arrival of 3 more smart boards for the use of classes 1 to 5 and smart TVs for all the KG sections. We have also ordered more games material.
IN CONCLUSION let me tell you that I really miss our wonderful students. I have been daily praying for them and for you. I shall continue imploring our Heavenly Father to bless you all and keep you safe in this time of pandemic.
