The young and fledging Bosco Tech in Sabbavaram Mandal, Visakhapatnam, opened its doors to a new batch of Business Process outsourcing (BPO) students. This is the second batch of students at Bosco Tech, Devipuram, after the institute started its operations in the month of May 2014. The students were welcomed by the director of the institute, Fr. Thomas Thottiyil SDB.
The Chief Guests for the event were Sr. Annie (The Provincial of MMM), Sr. Valasamma (The Vice-Provincial of MMM) and Ms. Amala. The proceedings for the day started with a pledge taken by the students, followed by welcoming the guests with bouquets and with a welcome song by the students.
Fr. Thomas Thottiyil, speaking on the occasion explained the importance of Bosco Tech in empowering the youth. He cited the examples of Don Bosco and few Bollywood actors like Shahrukhan who used to borrow Rs.20 every day to appear for auditions, has now become a famous actor. Amitabh Bachan who failed in the audition test conducted by All India Radio never gave up. After many falls and failures over the years he has not only grown bigger and iconic but has become an institution that is inseparable from the lore of Indian cinema. Fr. Thomas advised the students to invest their hard work in order to climb the ladder of success and Bosco Tech provides support and ample opportunities for that.
Sr. Annie (The Provincial of MMM), officially cut the ribbon and inaugurated fresh batch. She advised the students to develop full potential and energy. She also challenged the students to welcome failure into their lives. It’s how we grow. What matters is not that you failed, but that you recovered. Sr. Annie expressed her great happiness seeing many young boys and girls in Bosco Tech premises. She concluded her short speech by appreciating the Don Bosco staff and management for their commendable work.
Vennela and VijayaLaxmi students of BPO beautifully summarized the work of Bosco Tech in the form a song and underlined the present education system wherein education is not available to poor who can’t pay thousands of rupees. But expressed their joy and appreciated Don Bosco organization for providing free skill training for their better future.
The program was concluded by distribution of sweets and fruits.
