Religious and Moral Formation


RELIGIOUS AND MORAL FORMATION

The management respects the religious beliefs of all the groups and denominations represented in the college.  However, only catholic religious services will be held at the Institute at which the Catholic students are expected to be present and take an active part.  Regular religious / moral instructions will be held for all the students.  Its purpose is to help the students to reflect on the great questions of life, to understand the meaning of being human, to facilitate one’s ‘inward journey’ and value clarification.  Study and discussion on issues such as human rights, social justice, social harmony, adolescent problems, etc. will also be part of this programme.

DIGNITY OF LABOUR

All Don Bosco Institutions value physical labour.  To inculcate the real dignity and value of labour, as part of our training, students will be asked in turns to clean shop floors, class rooms, wash basins, drinking water closet, walls and ceilings, etc.  Students should feel proud to participate in the keeping the institute clean and cooperate with the teachers in carrying out all the tasks entrusted to them and should not feel in anyway ashamed to do such work.

PUNCTUALITY AND REGULARITY

Students must be punctual in the Institute on every working day.  Late comers should not enter the class without the written permission from the Principal / Dean of Studies.

No students shall absent himself / herself without obtaining prior permission.  Leave must be obtained by a written application from the parent or guardian.  No absentee returning to Institute should enter the class room without the written permission from the Principal / Dean of Studies.  If the absence on account of illness lasts more than 3 days, the application for leave must be accompanied by a medical certificate.

Games and Sports

In Don Bosco’s system of education, sports and games are a important factor, since they promote a sound physical development, relief from the tension of work and help effectively in the formation of character.  Hence, all the students are expected to take an active part in the games and sports conducted by the college.  Prizes and certificates will be awarded to the winners.

Industrial Visits
