The website ‘www.donboscoschoolshirva.com’ is the mouth-piece of Don Bosco English Medium School, Shirva, inaugurated on 15.4.2017 in order to communicate up-to-date information on the life and activities of the school to the parents, alumni/alumnae and general public. The school has a history of 35 years and is on the threshold of affiliation by the CBSE Board. We fondly hope that the website will serve as a powerful link between the school and all those who are associated with it.
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime,” advises a Chinese proverb. Education, being the primary redeeming factor to our society, aims to draw out the best from the students. With formation of character as the main concern, the school not only informs but also forms and transforms the students into integrated persons and global citizens/leaders. Gandhiji dreamt of an education which would activate the moral, spiritual and physical faculties and enkindle the body, mind, heart and spirit. True education cannot be limited to the books alone but has to cater to the building of relationships among our youth. Personal interaction with the teachers/parents/friends helps the blooming of the personalities of the children. The students of Don Bosco, with ‘ignited minds’ (Dr Abdul Kalam), shall be the ambassadors of peace and harmony in the global village of the day.
May the website continue to serve as a medium of communication between the school and the stakeholders. God bless the school, students, parents, alumni/alumnae and all its well-wishers.
