Don Bosco High School and Junior College Baroda – 28th – 30th August
Fr. Mcanroe and Fr. Leon conducted a three day intense course for the teachers, leaders and catholic students of Don Bosco, Makarpura, Baroda Gujarat.
One the First day, the Fathers invited the teachers to make a decision – whether they wanted to complete the curriculum in class or educate the child holistically. Through questioning and discussion the teachers were oriented into helping their pupils become better individuals. This required that they first become aware of themselves – their likes and dislike, their good qualities and the not so good qualities that they possessed. As the day progressed they were oriented to become good and authentic leaders.
On the second, the Fathers helped the school leaders to come to know themselves. Through activity and discussion, they helped the children understand the nuances of leadership. They helped the leaders understand that to change the world, they had to first change themselves for the better.
The third day was dedicated to orient the Catholic students of the school and college. Frs. Mcanroe and Leon helped the students realize their true vocation – that they are called to be children of God. They told the children that God is always in search of them as he wanted to make them his friends.
