Though belated, I wish all readers and viewers of the school’s website a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. 2018 has begun and hope it will be a special year. The start of every year reminds us that the future is bright – a future to attain our dreams, fulfil our plans and an opportunity to start afresh.
With the dawn of the new year, the school also started the new academic year on 7th February. The chief guest and guest of honour for the inauguration were Deputy Commissioner of West Garo hills, Shri Ram Singh, IAS and Shri Swapni Tembe, IAS, SDO (Civil), Dadenggre respectively. They both stressed the importance of academic excellence as well as engagement of students in co-curricular activities. Don Bosco Higher Secondary School tries to cater to both aspects for a holistic development of the students.
Last year was an eventful year for us. We installed CCTV cameras in the campus and classrooms, set up a few Digital classrooms and School software management. One of the unforgettable achievements of the school last year was in the SSLC examination. Rahul Sen secured 2nd rank in the state. The whole school was in jubilation when the results were declared. The overall SSLC and HSSLC results were also excellent. Congratulations especially to Rahul!
The one memorable event last was the grand celebration of diamond jubilee of the school on 18th October. You might have already read about it in this website or elsewhere. It was an occasion of rejoicing. It was a thanksgiving to the Almighty and the persons responsible for the growth of the school. I would like to congratulate the staff and students for the grand success of the diamond jubilee. Thanks also to those who supported us to make the celebration a success.
One sad new in 2018 was the passing away of Fr. Abong who was Vice-Principal of the school. After a prolonged illness he passed away in Guwahati on 12th February. May God give him eternal rest! The SSLC and SSLC students are beginning their MBOSE examination on 5th and 6th respectively. They are called the Diamond Jubilee batch. We wish them success. Hope they bring laurels to the institution.
The school’s Annual Sports have already begun. The Grand Conclusion will be on 9th March. We will keep you update on the events that will take place in the he school. Keep visiting our site and enjoy reading the updates and viewing of the photographs. See you soon.
