    "My heart overflows with thanksgiving; I will recount God's greatness forever" - These typical expressions of the psalmists have become a reality on the occasion of their Diamond Jubilee celebrations. It is our deep pride and immense joy to come together to tell the humanity and the world of young people, God's long standing intervention spanning over sixty years and His faithful accompaniment in the growth of our prestigious institute. On this beautiful moment, we remember with grateful hearts all the eminent personalities who with the extraordinary academic brilliance have brought glories to our institute.

    The magnificent dreams and giant visions of Don Bosco were always aimed towards education of young minds and saving their souls. The historical pages of the life of St. John Bosco clearly mentions how he was very keen in forming and developing the total well being so that they may ultimately become God's children and good citizens for the society.

    A deep sense of gratitude and thanksgiving overflows from our hearts as we look back the wonders God had manifested in our school. Our school has made marvelous achievements, reached incredible heights with the passionate and dedicated staff members working from the start of our school. The principals and teachers indeed have taken pride in reaching out to the students both in teaching and in forming them, thus together taken extraordinary efforts to make our institute grow with remarkable progress.

    The quote of Nelson Mandela, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" and the quote of Mahatma Gandhi, "By education, I mean an all-round drawing of the best in child and man in body, mind and spirit" rightly exemplifies the true scope and motivation of a school. In fact, our school offers the same purpose focusing on efficiency, loyalty and integrity in all its undertakings. May this celebration of Diamond Jubilee of our school assure us God's blessings for the coming years and remind us for more dedication in our service keeping in mind the charism given by our father and founder - the development of young people in our institute and upcoming as God's children.
