Don Bosco welcomes you

Until the time of the Enlightenment, progress was synonymous with growth in wisdom. From generation to generation, the treasures of knowledge were accumulated and interwoven. Scientific advances were entwined with cultural, social ethical and aesthetic advances so as to form an integrated tradition that could be passed down from parents to children.  Post-modernity has fragmented the forms of knowledge and discourse and has frayed the inherited tapestry, which is now transmitted only in the form of remnants: enormous chunks of technology, small pieces of ethics, a few strands of solidarity, and several stitches of culture are bound together to create a tangle of cloth and thread incapable of generating harmonious progress. At this juncture, Don Bosco’s system of education prevalent in Salesian College – a Don Bosco Institution - is offering something new to our Motherland, which has rich potential and human resources. The educational institutions of Don Bosco are more like homes. Students felt safe and secure, and lived in a relaxed atmosphere. The system of Don Bosco is a ‘promoting system’, which welcomes critical reflections on culture, history, religious traditions, economic conditions, media, gender discrimination, political structures and the like. Such a system will help the students to discern what is true and false, good and evil, beautiful and ugly in the present world. It will help them to weigh what should be done or avoided and to consciously make responsible decisions. Education has to be life oriented. The educators’ role is to transmit wisdom and not mere knowledge. Why are a car’s windshield so large and the rear view mirror so small? Because our past is not as important as our future. So look ahead and move on. Congratulations to our Principal and all those responsible for the new website.

The Principal

Welcome to Salesian. Welcome to pursue  Art and AreteArt, originally a Latin word, meant in the earlier centuries of its usage 'the ability to make an artifact'; the skill to do painting or sculpture or dance and got extended to mean developing any of your skills. Arete is a Greek word in its origin and means Excellence or Quality. Arete, as quality and excellence is the essence of the Universe, and it is a potential in You.

Congratulations on embarking on this Journey in Salesian. Enjoy what you Do. Perfect What you Do. Be the Spark of Quality. A Flame that Enlightens and Enlivens!
