Be good citizens: Priest


FINAL-year students of Don Bosco Technical Secondary School in Port Moresby have been reminded to be good Christians and honest citizens.
General-counsellor for missions Rome Fr Alfred Maravilla told the 250 students of grade 12 and industrial training course two: “When you go out from here and into society, be good Christians and honest citizens so that your work in society is meaningful and fulfilling.”
He said the school had not only given them an opportunity to be employed or pursue education, but spiritual and holistic formation.
School rector Fr Pedro Sachitula reminded them that there were no ex-Bosconians as being a Bosconian was a way of life.
Principal Martin Dai reminded the students to remember their training as Bosconians and urged them to use the values and principles they had been taught.
“A Bosconian is about using the experience you have gained to positively shape how you see and interact with the world around you,” he said.
Patrick Mu-uh of grade 12 who received a certificate in machine fitting and machinists thanked the Salesian community and school staff for imparting to them the wisdom and knowledge necessary to succeed in their lives and become role models in their communities.
