Our beloved Founder Late Shri John Bosco.
Words fall short in describing a magnanimous personality like his. He was born on 24th Nov 1943 in Kerala. He Post graduated in English, Philosophy, and History and obtained a BachelorDegree in Divinity from Italy. He worked as a teacher and a Principal at Dharwad, Nargund and Kerala before opening up a school in Vijayapur. In 1994, Sir started St. Joseph’s school in a small rented house in Viveknagar with just two students. With his constant dedication and hard – work, Sir succeeded in building up a gigantic institution which boasts of more than 3000 students with about 160 teaching and non- teaching staff. Nearly 2400 students have passed out of the portals of this institution. Teachers who worked under him will never forget his distinctive disciplined framework during his all time teacher- ship at the workplace. He was the best teacher for his students and an icon for many teachers. He was able to realize his idea of creating a unique educational environment in Vijayapur. He was a multi-lingual person, an efficient orator, a professional teacher, a proficient administrator, and above all, a true gentleman. Sir left for the Heavenly abode on Jan 14th, 2012. Though he is not physically present with us today, his memories will be enshrined in our hearts and his set of ideals will be the guiding light for every Josephite.
