Don Bosco’s Educational System
Don Bosco’s philosophy and method of education are acclaimed the world over as one of the most brilliant systems of education. This system emphasizes that educators should accompany their students as a friend and guide. It is a student centred, friendly and holistic approach to education. It creates a climate that ‘draws forth’ (educere) the best in the student, that encourages the student’s complete and fullest self-expression, that assists children in acquiring convictions and attitudes that will lead them to opt in favour of what is good, right, joyful and life-enhancing.
Don Bosco International School
The Don Bosco International School was launched in June 2014 at Matunga and it brings together the very best in the Don Bosco and Cambridge systems of education. It provides a unique learning experience that helps children grow into outstanding global citizens.
Our Classrooms are ergonomically designed to ensure our children are comfortable depending on the subjects they learn and the grade they are in. Younger students have lower chairs and tables and these will become increasingly more functional when the child goes to higher grades.
All our classrooms will be wifi enabled and each classroom will have a multimedia projector available for teachers to use and build rapport with students.
Dance & Arts:
To encourage creativity and also improve their kinaesthetic skills, we have built two areas for dance and arts. Each of these facilities has dedicated staff and is an opportunity for students to understand themselves and explore potential areas for their own growth.
The IT lab is well equipped with the latest computers and software. These are all networked. Selective internet access will be made available based on curriculum requirements.
Reading books encourages children to explore the world though their imagination. Our library is designed to help children access what they need and in the format they can best absorb the information.
