HINTS FOR BOYS IN SALESIAN SCHOOLS (Given by DON BOSCO)
ATTITUDE TO GOD ■
Remember that we have been created in order to love and serve God, our Creator and that all learning and wealth in this world amount to nothing without the fear of God on which our temporal and eternal welfare depend.
Give glory to God for whatever learning you have for He is the Author of every good. Do not glory in any ability.
Give yourself to the practice of virtue while you are young. The virtues to be cultivated most are modesty (purity), humility, obedience and kindness.
By modesty is meant a proper and decent manner of speaking and acting. This virtue is one of the best ornaments of your age.
Avoid any kind of sin, especially three evils should be particularly avoided: a) Taking of the name of God in vain b) Impurity in thought, word or deed c) Stealing
These evils draw God’s anger up on us. But if we keep these evils far away from us, God will never fail us with His blessings.
ATTITUDE TO TEACHERS ■
Boys should look upon their school-mates as brothers and upon their Teachers and Superiors as Fathers/ Mothers.
Respect every teacher whether of your own class or not. Be grateful towards those who taught you in the past. Show your teachers those exterior signs of reverence to which they are entitled, such as, greeting them whenever you meet them.
Be convinced that your teachers deeply feel their serious obligation of promoting your welfare in the best way they possibly can, and that in advising, commanding and correcting you, they have nothing else in view but your own good.
After piety study is most praiseworthy. Therefore, your first occupation must consist in doing the tasks assigned to you by your teachers.
Always rise when your teachers enter the class and again when they leave. If they delay in coming do not make any noise, but wait for them in your places in silence reviewing your lesson or reading some good book.
■ During class avoid whispering or interrupting.
SCHOOL MATES 1. Strive to edify your school mates by your good example at all time. In fact no sermon is more efficacious than good example. 2. Never make fun of those who are backward in their studies or not so quick to grasp their lessons. Let there be no ridiculing of anyone on account of his physical defect. What you laugh at or despise in others may some day befall you. 3. Gladly help one another at recreation; make no distinction in the choice of your companions. Let no one be slighted in any game and let there be no selfishness. If there be need to make a sacrifice for the sake of the team let it be made cheerfully. 4. When you are asked by a superior regarding the conduct of some of your companions, answer to the best of your knowledge especially when it is a matter of preventing or remedying some evil. To be silent would not be beneficial to your companion and would be offensive to God. Always avoid exaggeration and speak truthfully.
BEHAVIOUR AT SCHOOL 1. To write or draw on the blackboard (except when called upon to do so), to write offensive words, to spoil walls or maps or anything else are things absolutely to be avoided. 2. Take great care of your text-books, copy books and other belongings. Beware of appropriating your neighbourâ€™s property even if it be the smallest thing. Should you find a lost article, give it at once to the Principal / Vice-Principal. 3. Keep the floor and surroundings clean by allowing no paper, dirt etcâ€Ś to fall on it. Cleanliness and purity of soul are reflected by a clean and neat exterior. 4. Speak no ill of your mates, or of the discipline or management of the school. Everyone is perfectly free to remain or not to remain in the school. 5. Always speak well of your school and of your teachers. 6. Performances on the stage of the school auditorium are permitted for your instruction and entertainment. They should help to bring out the fine qualities of your hearts, and never be an occasion for the least sin.
7. Attend them cheerfully and with gratitude to your superiors for permitting them for you. 8. To enter the auditorium in such a hurry or even to run the risk of hurting your companions, to try to go ahead of others in order to secure a better seat, to stand when you should be seated, to shout, to whistle or hiss, or in any other way give evidence of disapproval or dislike, are things absolutely to be avoided. 9. Do not ridicule any one for his mistakes or awkwardness. When the curtain is lowered, applaud generously but not boisterously. 10. Be gentlemanly also when things have not been according to your taste or as perfect as you expected them to be. 11. In leaving the auditorium do not push or shove one another. Go out in an orderly manner. 12. Speak well of all, think well of all, do good to all.
Office Hours Principal can be interviewed between 9.00 and 10.30 am and by special appointment.
t. John Bosco (popularly known as Don Bosco) was born in Italy. He is remembered as a man who dedicated his life to the service of abandoned young people. John Bosco created an order in the Catholic Church, called the Salesians. He was a great educator, employing teaching methods based on love rather than punishment. His method of education is known as The Preventive System. He believed education to be a â€œmatter of the heart,â€? and said that the students must not only be loved, but know that they are loved. Don Bosco Institutions are not mere schools; they are a family and education here is a way of life. To have a full comprehension of how it works it has to be seen in action.
