Welcome to Auxilium School, Kattappana
TOGETHER FOR A BETTER WORLD
The Salesian Educational institutions originated in Italy as a divinely inspired initiative of St.John Bosco, our Father and Founder, and St. Mary Domenica Mazzarello, our Co- Foundress, both great friends and guides of youth. Their deep communion with God and readiness to learn from Mary, the Blessed Mother, made them attentive and sensitive to the cry of poor young people for help. This mission was handed-over to their followers and became part of an over-all plan for the holistic education of the youth spread all over the world. In keeping with the charisma of Don Bosco and Mary Mazzarello, we, the Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco of the Sacred Heart Province of Bangalore, work in various spheres for young people, especially the poorest, who are the wealth and treasure that God has entrusted to us. They are the theological bases, the holy ground from where God speaks to us. We consider our educational institutions as important and privileged places to reach out to the young people for the following reasons:
• An educational institution is the preferred cultural medium of education in which we can give a systematic response to the needs of pupils in proportionate to their growth.
• It is an institution that determines the formation of personality because it transmits the view of the world, of human kind and of history and
• it is one of the most important means of fostering human dignity and integral development.
The educational institutions run by the Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco of Bangalore Province are in general, known by the name”Auxilium’.
I am pleased to address you all, on this occasion of the launch of our new website, that would pave way for our commitment to bridge the gap of accessibility of information. It also gives me immense joy and satisfaction seeing the coincidence of this launch, with the bicentenary year of birth of Don Bosco(16 August 1815- 31 January 1888), our patron and founder. According to Don Bosco, “without confidence and love, there can be no true education”. Our committed team of staff establishes a conducive environment that allows our students to grow intellectually, emotionally and socially.Efficacious education is not possible, unless a symbiotic approach and interdependent relationship exist among the educator, pupils and parents. Credible and timely information on scholastic systems, processes and people are paramount in establishing and sustaining such a relationship. In the present scenario of knowledge explosion through technological means, we need to improvise the existing skills of organizing information and prioritizing actions. In this digital age, when our students have become search engines intuitively acclimatized to technological advancement and use of varied gadgets for social net working and sharing of ideas, it is prudent and befitting on our part, to extend this burgeoning interest into intra-mural learning process as well. Thus, this website has been launched with an optimistic view,that it will become a reliable and updated source of related news and information of the school for many demographic groups like parents, students, staff, alumni and other stakeholders. Being a maiden venture, it may not be a foolproof output from the very beginning; but with dedication and continual improvement, we would march to perfection.
I hope you would find this website informative, useful and user friendly. We welcome healthy criticism and request your valuable suggestions for making it better.
With best wishes and prayers,
