Port Moresby DBTI
DBTI, Port Moresby, PNG, 4 October 2019 -- Don Bosco Technological Institute Past Pupils in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea (PGS Viceprovince) start the Christmas celebration together already from October. A few days ago an Alumni Game Tournament kicked off to celebrate the Christmas vacation together. It is part of strengthening the mutual relationship among our Past Pupils and also to promote the values of Don Bosco - family spirit, helping each other and coming together to help others.
The Tournament is not just a DBTI Alumni affair. Most of the DBTI Past Pupils form their own teams with their relatives, friends, colleagues and even families to participate. The 'wantok' social - cultural system of PNG is also here in action. So far the Don Bosco Tournament is being run smoothly every Saturday in DBTI-Port Moresby sports grounds.
The DBTI is located in East Boroko - Port Moresby (Rector Fr. Alex Garces), and now with the more than 800 students is probably the largest IUS (Salesian Higher Education institution in the whole EAO Region), at present the school offers two BA courses and the path towards the University is being followed. The DB Alumni are involved in the school as teachers and technical instructors, and in view of the 150th Anniversary of Don Bosco Alumni worldwide (June 24, 2020) try to stir more animation dynamics in the whole Association.
