WELCOME TO DON BOSCO ALUMNI MATUNGA UNIT
Don Bosco High School began operating in Matunga in 1941, but the Salesians of Don Bosco started their work in Tardeo, Bombay in 1928. This date is important to remember because 1978 is not far off; that year will notch up 100 years of Don Bosco in Bombay—a Golden Jubilee occasion for big debralions in which, it is to be expected, our Past Pupils will play a major role. Fifty years is a long span of time during which much good work has been done; from one small beginning in Tardeo we have now in Bombay alone, six important houses, including a Technical School and an Orphange.
The origin of the Don Bosco Past Pupils’ Movement, as is well know, can be traced back to the initiative of a small group of twelve artisans of the Oratory of Turin who, with Charles Gastini and two of his friends presented to Don Bosco to express their wishes, gifts and heartfelt gratitude to him on his feast day 24th June 1870. Within a few years this spontaneous and informal practice become a tradition. This attraction passed on to his boys and found its practical expression in the Past Pupils’ Moveinnt which is today spread out through the whole world.
That historical meeting was repeated 16 times with an ever increasing number of past pupils. Don Bosco always appreciated that token of gratitude and used to address his past pupils as “Salesians in the world.”
