Dear Students, Staff and Parents,
Welcome to the start of another academic year 2020-21. In spite of the onslaught of the Covid19 pandemic, we managed to successfully complete 2019-20. Kudos to our Principal and her team of committed staff that went into overdrive to see that portions were completed and the students were kept engaged through online teaching during this unprecedented lockdown period. We also congratulate our first batch of 10 th graders who came out with flying colours in the IGCSE examinations held in March 2020…
Our School Affairs
Our school has all the offering for our students which includes transportation, food, living houses and uniforms
Don Bosco’s message of care and pastoral duties has never been in so much need as of now and DBIS has reached out, practicing charity, through love and respect.
On the academic front, we are carefully monitoring GRs and other circulars from State Education authorities. Frequent changes, for example ban on online classes for pre-primary to revoking the ban, has not severely affected us, as we, with the Parent’s approval, managed to conduct Virtual classes for all sections of the school. From the feedback that we received and articles from educational sites, learning in virtual classes has better retention as well as helps in parent-child bonding. I thank the parents for their support and cooperation.
Dear Meena Ma’am,
To the school,
I have been working on this letter to all the teachers in my mind over past 4 months. I just haven’t been so sure how to put it across. Today I decided the best way to start is just begin.
While world around is going virtual for our children, certainly one thing real for them are teachers, who are humans, humanitarians and preaching the practice of being humans to the next generation basis education.
Here comes my two days of experience on the occasion of consultation record with Home room teachers as well as specialist teachers.
An extremely well-planned virtual meeting coordinated by Ms. Meena Saldanha, Ms. Gladys Gonsalves, Mr. Edgar Mascarenhas and Team ICT led me to our specialist teachers. The punctuality, the patent of DBIS was well maintained in this online consultation too.
The teachers were not only well organized about a particular student’s school dairies but also knew where exactly the problem exists and what improvising is needed. At the same time, they knew her or his strength story too.
I was extremely impressed by the Home Room Teachers gesture of keeping the examples ready which is an exact area of concern.
Most importantly, each teacher had maintained the decorum of warmth in spite of the day long job to address all the parents. Their approachability was fantastic. The whole process was virtual but it had a real school impact.
Through this testimony I would like to thank specially,
Home room Teachers
