You are seeking admission for your son in Don Bosco School, Park Circus. We wish to be of maximum service to you in this regard. You are very well aware, the number of seats is limited and the admission seekers are numerous. The admission is based on successfully completing certain admission formalities and procedures which includes a lottery. Therefore after meeting the parents and the children and after scrutinizing the application forms and the documents asked for, the admission seekers will be short listed and subsequently the final selection will be made on the basis of a lottery.
Don Bosco School Park Circus is a Christian Minority Institution and as such the norms of minority institutions are applicable in the admission procedure.
The selection is done by the Principal with the help of the Fathers of Don Bosco School, Park Circus only. No one else in the school or outside the school has anything to do with the admission process. Hence, beware of touts or middlemen who claim otherwise.
Let me also caution you about certain things:
Please avoid any third party that approaches you in connection with the admission and neither should you approach any third party for admission. Beware of touts who try to cheat people during the admission-season. Recommendations for admission are also not entertained.
Do not offer any money to anyone who approaches you asking for money in the name of admission, posing to be well connected with the school, or pretending to have something to do with the admission procedure. We do not accept any money for admission. Therefore, do not spoil the name of this institution by offering money to anyone.
And if it is known to the school authorities, even subsequently, that money has been paid to anyone in connection with an admission, that admission will be cancelled and the student will have to be withdrawn.
Finally do not believe anyone who approaches you for money saying that the above mentioned facts are just pretensions.
I hope your child will be successful and we will have the opportunity of serving you.
God bless you.
FR. SIBY JOSEPH VADAKEL, SDB.
