My Dear Salesians, Staff, Parents and dear Students
“Happiness is our way of Life”
Being in a Don Bosco Institution, you cannot but be happy. In particular being in Don Bosco, Egmore, makes one have a broader smile, because of its broader outlook. I am happy to join the Don Bosco, Egmore family, when it is eagerly preparing to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee. Having had its humble beginnings in 1958, Don Bosco, Egmore has grown in leaps and bounds and continues to keep its flag flying high. The past pupils of Don Bosco, Egmore are found all over the globe, making it a global village.
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, Egmore. Remember Happiness is not one day’s work, but is our way of life.
