The School of Don Bosco in Siliguri imparts education in English medium with affiliation to ICSE board in New Delhi. The location of this school is in the Himalayan ranges foothills in the region of North Bengal in India, somewhat closer to Darjeeling.

The reason for the setting up of this institute was to provide assistance to the boys in their growth phase to become mature, responsible and honest denizens of the country and give them the right education to score good marks in the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education and Indian School Certificate Examinations.

Salesians of Don Bosco run this school and Salesian system of education, which is also known to be a form of preventive education is followed in the Don Bosco School.

History:

It was in 1960 that the Don Bosco Salesians first arrive in Siliguri. They aimed to set up a centre to train people who wished to be a part of their society and for this purpose, they acquired a piece of land at the area of Ektiasal in Siliguri. During the aggression by the Chinese in 1962, they had to move out to a place near Kolkata called Bandel. The Salesian building was taken over by the british army, which was initially used as an hospital for the army and then a central school was started in the building. In the year 1965, the site near 2nd Mile in Siliguri was purchased where the present day school is located. Then Fr Venia and Bro. Joseph Paranthara, the first two to arrive in 1968 on 31st January, started residing in this location and plan for an agricultural school was finalized. But then it was found that the soil couldn’t be suitable for agricultural purposes. When Fr. Paul Taverna came in place of Fr. Venia, he observed the requirement of a good school for the boys and therefore in 1973 on 15th January, he set up a school with standard 7 with 6 boys. Then in 1976, these boys gave the exam for the ICSE.

In the year 1988 and month of June, XI and XII standard classes were started with science and commerce subjects and for the March 1990 session of ISC examination, the first batch became eligible.

In 1998 on March 21st, the Silver Jubilee was celebrated.

By the blessings of the God and dedicated hard work of salesians, the staffs and the determination of all the previous principals, Don Bosco Siliguri has reached its zenith position in the city.
The God’s providence is duly acknowledged because of His plan to bring success to the Siliguri Don Bosco school.
