    Address :Don Bosco School,Park Circus,23 - Darga Road,Kolkata - 17
    Phone :033-22404157/2287 2989

    About School : John Bosco was born in the little hamlet of Becchi some 20 kms. from Turin, Italy. His father, Francis Bosco, was a hard working peasant who died when John was only 2 years old. The grief-stricken words of his mother, telling him that he was now fatherless remained deeply impressed in the child's mind, and perhaps helped to instill into his mind the intense empathy for the orphans and the homeless which became the dominant note of his life.

    The story of the exertions and sacrifices made by him and his mother cannot be told here in detail. Working as a servant, teaching, assisting a tailor, doing chores for a blacksmith and keeping score at a billiard table were some of the things he did in order to pay for his food, lodging and tuition while at school. But the worst was over when in October 1835, with an outfit provided by charitable neighbors, John Bosco entered the Ecclesiastical Seminary at Chieri.

    In the pre-independence era the education provided by the elite schools of Kolkata was based on Western mores, which completely ignored India´s rich cultural heritage. Parents who wanted their wards to receive an education based on traditional Indian values were thus faced with a moral dilemma. It took one eminent thinker, our founder, the late Sri.L.N.Birla to translate vision into reality.
