In a world under the wave of the rapid
advance of the Industrial Revolution,
Don Bosco emerged as a pioneer in
education. He set about realizing his
vision for youth through a programme
of education for life and career by
forming young men for the challenges
of a new economy. He armed them with
skills in the new trades, ensuring them
with a bright future and also equipping
them with a reliable moral and religious
compass to orient them in their career.
Don Bosco’s magnificent vision of
reaching out to millions of youth
across the globe is being realized today
through his faithful followers – priests
and lay people who through various
initiatives aid young people to find
happiness and a meaningful status in
life. Don Bosco Technical School, Liluah
is one such initiative, making a huge
difference in the lives of young men and
women in India today.

of governing their lives.
Our active presence among the students- which is one
of loving kindness and understanding- has no other aim
than that of seeing to the integral development of their
natural gifts and of safeguarding them from physical

individual. Our system of education helps the individual
to love himself, others and God.

(Given by DON BOSCO)
Boys should look upon their school-mates as brothers
and upon their Teachers and Superiors as Fathers/
Respect every teacher whether of your own class or not.
Be grateful towards those who taught you in the past.
Show your teachers those exterior signs of reverence
to which they are entitled, such as, greeting them
whenever you meet them.
Be convinced that your teachers deeply feel their
serious obligation of promoting your welfare in the best
way they possibly can, and that in advising, commanding
and correcting you, they have nothing else in view but
your own good.
After piety study is most praiseworthy. Therefore, your
first occupation must consist in doing the tasks assigned
to you by your teachers.
Always rise when your teachers enter the class and
again when they leave. If they delay in coming do not
make any noise, but wait for them in your places in
silence reviewing your lesson or reading some good
Remember that we have been created in order to love and serve
God, our Creator and that all learning and wealth in this world
amount to nothing without the fear of God on which our temporal
and eternal welfare depend.
Give glory to God for whatever learning you have for He is the
Author of every good. Do not glory in any ability.
Give yourself to the practice of virtue while you are young. The
virtues to be cultivated most are modesty (purity), humility,
obedience and kindness.
By modesty is meant a proper and decent manner of speaking and
acting. This virtue is one of the best ornaments of your age.
Avoid any kind of sin, especially three evils should be particularly
a) Taking of the name of God in vain
b) Impurity in thought, word or deed
These evils draw God’s anger up on us. But if we keep these evils
far away from us, God will never fail us with His blessings.
■ During class avoid whispering or interrupting.
1. Strive to edify your school mates by your good example at all
time. In fact no sermon is more efficacious than good example.
2. Never make fun of those who are backward in their studies or
not so quick to grasp their lessons. Let there be no ridiculing of
anyone on account of his physical defect. What you laugh at or
despise in others may some day befall you.
3. Gladly help one another at recreation; make no distinction in
the choice of your companions. Let no one be slighted in any
game and let there be no selfishness. If there be need to make a
sacrifice for the sake of the team let it be made cheerfully.
4. When you are asked by a superior regarding the conduct
of some of your companions, answer to the best of your
knowledge especially when it is a matter of preventing or
remedying some evil. To be silent would not be beneficial to
your companion and would be offensive to God. Always avoid
exaggeration and speak truthfully.
1. To write or draw on the blackboard (except when called
upon to do so), to write offensive words, to spoil walls or
maps or anything else are things absolutely to be avoided.
2. Take great care of your text-books, copy books and other
belongings. Beware of appropriating your neighbour’s
property even if it be the smallest thing. Should you find a
lost article, give it at once to the Principal / Vice-Principal.
3. Keep the floor and surroundings clean by allowing no
paper, dirt etc… to fall on it. Cleanliness and purity of soul
are reflected by a clean and neat exterior.
4. Speak no ill of your mates, or of the discipline or
management of the school. Everyone is perfectly free to
remain or not to remain in the school.
5. Always speak well of your school and of your teachers.
6. Performances on the stage of the school auditorium are
permitted for your instruction and entertainment. They
should help to bring out the fine qualities of your hearts,
and never be an occasion for the least sin.
7. Attend them cheerfully and with gratitude to your
superiors for permitting them for you.
8. To enter the auditorium in such a hurry or even to run
the risk of hurting your companions, to try to go ahead
of others in order to secure a better seat, to stand when
you should be seated, to shout, to whistle or hiss, or in
any other way give evidence of disapproval or dislike,
are things absolutely to be avoided.
9. Do not ridicule any one for his mistakes or
awkwardness. When the curtain is lowered, applaud
generously but not boisterously.
10. Be gentlemanly also when things have not been
according to your taste or as perfect as you expected
them to be.
11. In leaving the auditorium do not push or shove one
another. Go out in an orderly manner.
12. Speak well of all, think well of all, do good to all.

t. John Bosco (popularly known as Don Bosco)
was born in Italy. He is remembered as a
man who dedicated his life to the service of
abandoned young people. John Bosco created
an order in the Catholic Church, called the
Salesians. He was a great educator, employing
teaching methods based on love rather than
punishment. His method of education is
known as The Preventive System. He believed
education to be a “matter of the heart,” and
said that the students must not only be loved,
but know that they are loved. Don Bosco
Institutions are not mere schools; they are a
family and education here is a way of life. To
have a full comprehension of how it works it
has to be seen in action.
