I want to welcome and also thank Bah Ricky our clerk and also Miss Bahun our teacher. Both have work very hard for printing and getting the certificate issued today. Sincerest thanks to Miss Bahun – she has taught you just like a mother who nurses for her little child with much love and dedication.
We are here this morning to celebrate and say farewell to our graduates. This is a proud moment not only for the graduates and their families. It is also a proud moment for our institution. We celebrate this graduation in front of the statue of Don Bosco as today it is his feast day. We salute him – who never fail to stop inspiring us to love and care for the young. This institution that has served so many youth for the past 38 years, it is because Don Bosco through the instrumentality of Fr Cilia and others have believed that it is in ‘giving that we receive; - yes we have received so many blessings because we have given our best services to the most deserved youngsters.
A quick look at statistics tells me that this graduation cohort consists of 43 students coming from different parts of our state and even from other neighboring states. Many of you have given a very good and emotional feedback and majority of you proposed that the winter camp be continued. We will definitely make the program better and better for the betterment of our future generations.
Dear graduate; please know that together with you – our institution has trained 5012 students in 2021 alone. We have sponsored 173 poor students without taking a penny for their various training here in this year 2021. During the pandemic from June 4th to August 26th 2021, our institution served as a corona centre and we have treated 138 corona patients for free of cost. About 200+ students were given job placements in various companies and many are doing well today. All these are possible because of the love and co-operation we receive from both the management and the students’ community. The credit goes to all of you.
Usually on any graduation day, lots of awards are presented to students, but here we give a general award because all of you were outstanding in your performance. It will not be fair to pick up one or two and laud them.. you all deserved to be awarded.
A solid training for your future is what DBYC delivers. However, we also want you to become good citizens in today’s globalized world. This is the educational system of Don Bosco, our founder – this is our system. This, I think, you have noticed how our teachers and staffs interacted with all of you during your stay here. We are certain that you have profited from this, you have learned to appreciate each other and are happy to have made friends, good friends and form good citizens.
Dear graduates, today we bid you farewell. Thank you for your many contributions to DBYC. You are our best ambassadors. Spread the word that DBYC is a good place to be. And be assured that you find open doors whenever you pass by. We want to stay in touch – keep watching also the Don Bosco Media Network, our news channel and many other programs from here. Come and visit us any time.
Fare you well and may your future be bright.”
After his speech, Fr Paul O Lyngkot the chief guest also greeted and praise the youth who graduated this year.
