His Vision …… Our Inspiration (1815-1888)
Saint John Bosco, popularly known as Don Bosco, was a priest of the Catholic Church, who came to the rescue of the poor, disadvantaged youth of his time with his innovative method of educating them through total immersion in their world, with personal involvement in their lives and aspirations, with a dedication that was total.
To ensure that his dedication to their cause shone through his actions, he lived with and for them. He based his education on the three great principles of reason, religion and loving kindness, as a caring father, doing everything possible for their welfare.
The system of education that he envisioned aims to create generations of young men and women who are intellectually competent,morally upright, socially committed, spiritually inspired and devoted to their country and the world. Don Bosco is the founder of the Don Bosco Society, continues to be our inspiration.
