New Don Bosco Technical College in Samoa

A new Don Bosco Technical College campus has been opened at Salelologa, in Savai’i, Samoa. The new compound  consists of eight classrooms, a computer lab and a workshop.

Unlike the Don Bosco Technical Center in Apia, the school teaches trades and high school subjects in Year 9 and Year 10. The school also educates both males and females. “There are plans to include a Year 11, 12 and 13 in the next few years so we can be called a College,” says Principal Father Mosese Vitolio Tui. The students of the vocational center can study in Savaii and continue at Don Bosco in Apia after two years.

Don Bosco in Savai’i was an initiative by the Archbishop Alapati Mataeliga because there is no Catholic college in Savaii following the closure of Logoipulotu College and Ulimasao College’s transformation into a technical center.

The school was opened by the Archbishop  who said in his sermon that “The idea of setting up Don Bosco here at Salelologa is to keep students in their homes while attending school. When they leave home to go to school in Apia, they are exposed to all sorts of problems.”
