He said the high quality of technical and vocational education and training provided by the various Don Bosco Schools has been recognized in the field and for you the graduates are appreciated by the industry not only for their competencies in the different trades attested by their hands on capabilities but also for their better work discipline, quality technical and vocational education and training in the country.
“You abide by the guidelines you have been given because they are meant to form you in to a good Christian and an honest citizen of Solomon Islands.
Here your education to the faith is of utmost priority. It is like a Parish which evangelizes” Mr. Bosamata said.
“Similarly these guidelines are aids in marking your stay in DBTI a happy, memorable and interesting as you relate with the school community.
“Don Bosco is a playground where friends meet and enjoy themselves and never forget that you a Bosconian in the Campus and out of it as well, as your behavior, good or bad, will be a reflection on the name of the school.
“Always manifest your good training by polite manners, respecting all alike, whether lady or gentlemen. Remember you are Bosconian always and everywhere: once a Bosconian always a Bosconian” Mr. Bosamata said.
