DB Azimganj Redesigns World class Computer Lab
Don Bosco School Azimganj inaugurated a newly redesigned computer lab on July 24, 2017. The lab set up in 2009 had reached comatose stage, was revived with much fanfare, thanks to benefactors like Don Bosco Siliguri which sponsored twelve of the thirty two computers.
The vision and courage to take bold steps made the school authorities to relaunch computer education in a big way in the locality. The school is hopeful that some generous benefactors will chip in for the rest of the computers taken on credit.
The students are super excited seeing so many computers in their lab. A new computer teacher too is hired to provide quality education to those in the periphery. It is hoped that his salary will be paid from the additional fees collected from the students for this purpose. The school eventually intends to reach out interested young people of the region with some short term computer courses, possibly with certification from the government.
Computer literacy will not only boost the self confidence of the students but also opens up new vistas in their academic possibilities and professional development.
Other programmes in the pipeline are a faculty development programme the teachers and an orientation programme for the senior students on academics and life skill management with a separate session only for the girls. There will be a career assessment programme followed by an awareness session and discussion on the various careers available today for the senior students of the neighbouring schools, colleges and the parish.
