Seekers of wisdom, welcome to the website of Don Bosco School Purnea!
Don Bosco envisioned a true education system as Preventive System of education which is built on the three pillars of Reason, Religion and Loving Kindness. A child needs to be reasoned out–whatever a parent is doing, teacher is doing, elder is doing, peer is doing should have a reason behind – it may be for a short time or for a long time- so that the child is encouraged to think, speak and do with reason. “A child is created by God and sustained by the Divine Almighty and led to the Creator at last” is the concept instilled in the mind of child through the pillar of Religion and child becomes a Divine Oriented and God Fearing person. Love and Kindness conquer everything, including the child. Love mixed with firmness brings true wholistic formation of a child. All these are possible by the continued accompanying presence of the educator among the children. In this way the Preventive System of education brings out Divine Oriented People and Responsible and Honest Citizens for the world.
Who accompanies the child? Who is accompanied? These questions lead to another three pillared structure of education – a triangular pillar which in no way, a side or an angle can be misfit, over smart, less important, if so, it can bring an imbalance in the triangle. Which are these equal pillars? Which are these equal triangles? Which are these equal sides? I would say: they are, the School Management (Educators consists of Salesian Staff, Administration, Teaching Staff, Support Staff) as First Pillar, Parents (Guardians) as the second Pillar and Students as the Third Pillar. Of these, at the adolescent stage of a child, which is his / her school life, the first two pillars play an Other Oriented role and the third, that is student, plays a self oriented role. Certainly the pattern changes as the child grows into a responsible citizen. Failure of a child is failure of all the three pillars. Success of a child is success of all the three pillars.
So, come on!, let us build this castle of education interacting with, supporting and encouraging each other and achieve the best for the nation and the world by begetting Divine Oriented People and Responsible and Honest Citizens from Don Bosco School Purnea.
Thank You and GOD bless you all!
