Our Founder

Don Bosco – The great Modern Educator
  • St. John Bosco, popularly known as Don Bosco was born at Becchi, in Piedmont, Italy on August 16, 1815.

From a very young age he was called to work for the poor young people of his time, when Europe was under the grip of Industrial Revolution and many a young person who came to the cities to study or in search of work fell an easy prey to the many social evils of his time.
He lost his father at the age of 2 and was brought up by his mother, who was truly his guide, his model and his educator. From early years of life he discovered his leadership qualities especially among his peers. At the age of nine little John Bosco was given a mission in a vision. He was to transform the young people “NOT WITH BLOWS BUT WITH LOVING KINDNESS” that was the goal of his life. Overcoming untold hardship and hostility he became a priest on June 5th 1841. His determination to be a priest for young people combined with his dynamic optimism resulted in the flowering of his long cherished goal.
Don Bosco was an educational practitioner rather than educational theorist. It is impossible to understand his approach to education without reference to his experiences in life, because he actually incorporated the lessons of his own life experiences into his pedagogy. This style of education consists in involving young people, their parents or guardians and the educator in a family atmosphere. This system is based on Reason, Religion (Faith in God) and Loving Kindness. The goal is integral formation. This embraces developing physical, intellectual, moral, social and spiritual aspects of a person’s life.
Today Don Bosco’s unique Charism for young people lives on undiminished, in its original freshness and dynamism in every corner of the earth. Where youth exists there Don Bosco is present through his Sons and Daughters for whom Don Bosco is a Father, Teacher, Founder, friend and Leader... ever relevant for Yesterday... Today... and Tomorrow...

Our Co-Foundress

St. Mary Domenica Mazzarello
  • God’s ways are marvellous. Contemporaneously with Don Bosco Mary Mazzarello in the hamlet of Mornese a little village in Piedmont, Italy thirsted with the same desire to help girls. Mary Domenica Mazzarello was born on May 9, 1837.

She too did receive a heavenly mandate. While walking down the uninhabited slopes of Borgo Alto she saw a group of girls playing in the nonexistent playground and a strong voice-firm and steady, communicated to her the divine mission : “I entrust them to you” was it a dream, a hallucination? Yet there she was fully awake. Walking in full consciousness...
In 1864 came the momentous meeting with Don Bosco, “He is a saint! I can feel it!” She said to all. Don Bosco too saw something equally precious in her. In Mary Mazzarello a like-minded soul, Salesian by instinct Don Bosco found a ready, active and creative collaborator. In 1872 he founded the Society of the Salesian Sisters (FMA) with Mary Mazzarello at their head. Imbibed with the spirit of the Founder they would march forward in the quest of providing integral formation and education for girls. 1875 saw the first expansion of the Salesian work outside Europe. India welcomed the first Salesian Sisters in 1922 and in North East 1923.

Our Educational Approach


The system of education followed in the Schools run by the Salesian Sisters is the Preventive System. It is the key that gives access to the heart of every young person. There are very few people who rebel in the face of genuine goodness. One gets discipline by using a blend of kindness and firmness, and by never asking what is beyond the strength of the child. Loving kindness is order to have a true educational value must be based on a healthy equilibrium, which while surrounding the child with genuine love, avoids every form of false affection, and renders the teacher-pupil relationship, a shared search for true values. Don Bosco’s philosophy of education is summarized in this principle, which explains, justifies and actuates it : “Education is a matter of the heart.”
The sisters, Teachers, Parents and Students constitute an integral unit known as the Educating Community whose primary aim is to form the young to become builders of an honest society, women of upright thinking and acting, commitment and competence.
