Eight kilometers from the town of Thrissur on the Palakkad highway, in the village of Mullakkara (Mannuthy) on a sprawling 16 acre plot is situated Don Bosco Bhavan. It occupies the pride of place among the other institutions that sprouted here over the years: Don Bosco Higher Secondary School, Don Bosco LP School, Don Bosco ICSE School, Don Bosco Youth Centre. Anyone entering the campus cannot but be impressed by the vastness, elegance and serenity of the place. The campus is home to around 3000 children and youngsters receiving an education according to the style and principles of Don Bosco.
Faithful to the ideal of Don Bosco, the educator who gave great value to games and recreation, the institution has not spared pains to provide ample playgrounds for the students to recreate themselves.
Audio Visual Hall
A state of the art Audio Visual Hall is available for the presentation of multimedia programmes, both for educational and entertainment purposes.
The aspirantate can boast of two beautiful chapels, one spacious and the other smaller, which offer an environment of silence and tranquility where in their welcoming and recollected atmosphere the seminarians can gather together both for community worship as well as moments of personal intimacy with the Lord.
Former students of Don Bosco Bhavan organize periodical gatherings of their companions and staff. All are encouraged to enroll themselves officially in the Association of the Past Pupils of Don Bosco in the unit nearest to where they live or work.
The first of the three years in the aspirantate is dedicated to assisting the seminarians to acquire proficiency in the English language, gain familiarity with the life and mission of Don Bosco and have a live-in experience of the Salesian spirit and system of formation. In the second and third years they complete their higher secondary studies. At the end of the three-year period those found suitable proceed to the Pre-Novitiate in Mysore, Karnataka for their next stage of formation.
As part of our involvement in the neighbourhood we run a youth centre, where more than 100 adolescents and youngsters of the locality can gather daily for recreational and cultural activities.
So too to enable the financially weaker section of youth and children to have access to education, scholarships are made available through the CFCA (Christian Foundation for Children and Aging) for deserving candidates.
