Don Bosco School, Katihar is an unaided, Minority Christian (Catholic) School for boys and girls established and administered by the Salesians of Don Bosco (Northern India)[order dated 19 Aug, 2014, case no. 542 of 2014]. As such it is a minority institution belonging to the Catholic Church. Provision is also made for the admissions of non-Catholic children. It reserves to itself the right to run the school according to its norms and close the school if it is in any way prevented from doing so. Don Bosco School, Katihar, established in 2008, is affiliated to CISCE (Council for Indian School Certificate Examination)(I.C.S.E) , New Delhi, having the school code - BI 036.
The aim of the institution is to impart sound value based education by forming in the students habits of Piety, Virtue, Discipline and Self-reliance during the years of their studies, thus enabling them to be dutiful members of the Catholic Church and useful citizens of their motherland - India.
Don Bosco School, Katihar offers its students not only professional qualification but also a holistic human education, the possibility of building up their life based on Christian principles of justice and charity. It aims at the integral and social growth of the students, by bringing them to an encounter with their cultural, humanistic and technical heritage. It functions in the light of the Christian concept of life centered on the teachings of Jesus Christ.
The method of education followed in the school is the Preventive System taught and practiced by St. John Bosco. It is based on Reason, Religion and Loving kindness. We seek to form the young, through education, into persons of Character, Competence, Conscience, Compassion and Commitment who will foster uprightness in public life.
Religious Instruction: Being a Christian institution, the classes of Christian Doctrine (Catechism) are compulsory for Christian students. All other students must attend classes of Moral Science/Value Education, which deal with moral principles, values and rules of conduct. A student must strive to attain qualities of mind and heart and integrate into his/her life, virtues such as honesty, sincerity, piety, compassion, generosity, love for nature and self reliance.
Discipline: Special attention is given to ensure a high standard of morality and discipline in the school. Guardians are requested to collaborate in this with the School Authorities by insisting on regular attendance and punctuality of their wards.
Students are answerable to the school authorities for their conduct in and outside the school. Hence, misbehaviour of any sort justifies dismissal. Irregular attendance, habitual illness or idleness, objectionable moral behaviour, conduct detrimental to the ordinary life of the school, continual failure to make satisfactory progress in studies and above all discourtesy, disrespect and disobedience to Staff are each a sufficient cause for dismissal.
