History of the School
• In 1815, on August 16, the father and friend of youth John Bosco was born. At the age of nine John had a mysterious dream, which led him to his future mission that he decided to become a priest and commit his life for the welfare of young people. To complete his education John had to do his share work on the family farm and study in the evening. John entered the seminary and was ordained a priest on June 5,1841 and from then on he was known as Don Bosco(Father Bosco). In 1853 two small workshops had been opened, a Shoemakers’ and the other a Tailors for teaching the unemployed youngsters to earn an honest livelihood.

• In December 1859 these young people were formed into a simple society. In May 1862 they took the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience thus forming a true religious congregation. In 1869 this community of men was officially recognized by “Salesians” after St. Francis de Sales.

• Don Bosco called his method of education the “Preventive system”, based on Reason, Religion and Kindness. Don Bosco also founded a Congregation of religious nuns known as the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians.

• Don Bosco died on January 31, 1888 at the age of seventy three. He was declared a saint on April 1934.

The Society, Don Bosco founded now numbers over 16092 members working in 133 countries through more than 2400 institutions. In India there are over 2500 Salesians serving the educational needs of the children through 450 institutions scattered throughout the country. The Daughters of Mary Help of Christians have a membership of 14420 and they work in 57 countries through 1438 institutions.
