CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF TANGA

Don Bosco

School

Wazo la kuwa na shule hii lilibujitokeza mwaka 1998 wakati wa sherehe za miaka 100 ya ukristo Jimboni Tanga. Sherehe hii ya Jubilei ilikuwa ifanyike mwaka 1993, mwaka ambao ndiyo jimbo Katoliki la Tanga lilitimiza miaka 100, lakini kwa sababu ya Jimbo kutokuwa na Askofu kati ya mwaka 1993 na 1994 sherehe hizi ziliamishiwa mwaka 1998, miaka minne baadaye. Kwa maneno mengine tunaweza kusema kuwa Shule hii 'DON BOSCO SCHOOL ni kumbukumbu ya Jubilei ya miaka 100 ya ukristo Jimboni Tanga. Shule inachukuwa wanafunzi 60 katika fani mbalimbali. Fani hizo ni pamoja na Ufundi mbao, ufundi magari na pikipiki, ushonaji, upishi, mafunzo ya nyumbani, ufundi umeme, komputa na ufundi ujenzi. Pamoja na hayo wanafunzi hupatiwa pia mafunzo ya kitabia na masomo mengine mfano hesabu na kiengereza.

Tailoring class


Tailoring was already there since 1990 in St. Anthony Home Craft Centre under NVTD now under VETA (Vocational Education Training Authority). This centre (Home Craft Centre) for 16 years had offered 375 girls who own validly certificate.

In 1999 the Diocese got this plot of 9.7 hectors and on 11/05/2000 Tanga municipal granted a certificate for starting building. The construction started officially in 1999 with carpentry building. The work was so difficult because the Diocese had no enough money. Four years later the school got a good number of donors in and outside our country that were ready to support this project. From outside there were donors from Germany, Austria and Monaco.

The school was officially opened in 14/08/2005 by Rt. Rev. Bishop Anthony M. Banzi. The students of St. Anthony Home Craft Centre were shifted to Don Bosco. The school has already been registered. Together with the school exams students have to sit for VETA exams.
