       Honiara, Solomons, 19 February 2021 -- The Don Bosco Rural Training centre came alive on 19th February to inaugurate the new scholastic year invoking the Holy spirit.

       The Holy Eucharist was presided over by Rector Fr. Robinson Parappilly and con celebrated by Fr. Bai Albesa, the Principal of the school and Fr. Dai. The young people of the RTC very well prepared the liturgy with solemn dancing processions and singing with 'Kete' and 'feda' using the special musical instruments of Solomon Islands.

       During the Holy Eucharist Fr. Robinson inspired the students and teachers to have dreams quoting Holy Father Pope Francis's Encyclical Fratelli Tutti. He encouraged them to dream for a better future.

       "This is a moment to dream big, to rethink our priorities—what we value, what we want, what we seek—and to commit to act in our daily life on what we have dreamed of. What I hear at this moment is similar to what Isaiah hears God saying through him: ‘Come, let us talk this over. Let us dare to dream. God asks us to dare to create something new.’”

       He also told them the stories of Joseph the dreamer, St. Joseph the dreamer and Don Bosco the great dreamer. Their dreams had a vision and the mission followed.

       “We are here to fulfill our own cherished dreams and fulfill them following the vision mission of our RTC,” said Fr Robinson.

       This was followed by the official inauguration ceremony. The teachers marched in procession accompanied by Fr. Bai. After paying tribute to the land of Hapi Isles, singing the National anthem, Fr. Bai in his welcome address emphasised the Strenna of the Rector Major to Hope for the better. He said let us make all things new in our little RTC by our hard work. He presented the official report of the school year.

       Fr. Dai in his presentation, explained to the students the role and functions of various youth groups, sodalities and clubs and urged them to develop leadership qualities. “This year we will strengthen the youth groups in our school by enhancing extracurricular activities in collaboration with parish youth,” he stated. Every teacher took time to explain different subject matters and their importance in their studies.

       Fr. Rector in his official inaugural speech, acknowledged the contributions made by previous missionaries and Salesians. He said the school will develop Nationally and internationally accepted curriculum and will implement in the following years.

       “We will work in close collaboration with the Ministry of education, agriculture and like-minded NGOs and Universities to empower the staff and students,” he said. He exhorted the students to work hard for their better future and of the country.

       The ceremony concluded with the singing of the alma mater song by the Bosconians.
