History and Ideology
DON BOSCO ENGLISH SCHOOL is a dream come true project of our Founder Trustee Mr. Sanjay Singh. It was his vision that modern education must remain true to the spirit of Indian ethos and culture. He insisted on value-based education, believing firmly that a community uncaring for its traditions is decadent and insubstantial. The need to establish a quality educational institution for the benefit of the people of Badlapur was his vision, which became reality in the year 2002. The school was named after Don Bosco, one of the greatest educators of modern times and the secret of his envied success in the field is embodied in the pithy wisdom. He said “without affection, there is no confidence, without confidence no education.” At the very early stage itself, the School was well furnished, spacious with ventilated classrooms, a well-stocked library, computer laboratory, science laboratory and a playground.
“Tamaso mā jyotir gamaya” means “From darkness, lead me to light” Symbolic or deep meaning is “Lead me to the enlightenment from ignorance created by my actions, thoughts, and understanding”.
It is from the Shanthi Mantra from The Brhadāranyaka Upanishad, which is one of the older, “primary” (mukhya) Upanishads.
“Knowledge is Power“
At DON BOSCO ENGLISH SCHOOL we believe that a happy child is a successful one. We are committed to providing a positive, safe and stimulating environment for children to learn, where all are valued. We believe that all children should enjoy their learning, achieve their potential and become independent life-long learners. We believe that education should take place in a fully inclusive environment with equal opportunities for all and that all children should learn to value religious and cultural differences. Our school strives to be at the center of the local community with positive and effective links to the wider and global communities.
Our mission is to make children aware of the beauty of the world around them, sensitize them to the environment, social and otherwise, and help them to make right and responsible choices in life. We strive to enable children to see, feel, sense and touch life as it is. We at DON BOSCO ENGLISH SCHOOL, pledge to build the base of a future India right from the very first step the child takes in our School and carries on till he passes out of its corridors as a knowing, caring, responsible and extremely conscientious citizen of India.
