Fr. Blaise Fernandez
Don Bosco Senior Secondary School, Nerul

We are happy to welcome amidst us our new principal, Fr. Blaise Fernandes who is very much a man of ideas and intelligence. Fr. Blaise Fernandez takes over as Principal in 2020 after his tenure in the same post at Don Bosco, Alirajpur. He exhibits exemplary leadership qualities for others to follow. Having been in a number of our prestigious schools in the province, he comes with experience to disarm any difficult situation simply by showing care and willingness to hear them out. He is known to be fair and consistent. His forte is that he is able to connect to people together and find ways to earn their trust. Team-work and trusting one another is his secret to success and I am sure that with this he will take our school to great heights.


I am excited and honoured to welcome each and everyone of you to the beginning of a new scholastic year. This year will be a year of setting and reaching attainable goals, working harder and smarter and taking our Junior College and student achievement to the next level of GREATNESS.

Thus, we can say he is not only born great but achieved greatness at a young age his prolific managerial skills and talents is a proof of his greatness. He is known to be a model Administrator par excellence. For thirty years of his life he has been an administrator, be in the mission land or in houses of formation, he has always been a perfectionist with an eye to scrutinize things with minute details. He is very Salesian in his approach and humble, bringing his touch of order to wherever he has been.

Fr. Adolph Furtado
Student Mentor
Don Bosco Senior Secondary School, Nerul

Fr. Adolf has several facets to his persona, has been in various places and positions of importance in the Province and Salesians of India, after he returned from the US, where he studied in Berkeley. He has been Principal in various Salesian schools, changing those to very modern systems, he began in Don Bosco Matunga where he changed the style of teaching and learning and did the same at Dominc Savio, Andheri where he was Principal and Rector. He was In - charge and founder of the Don Bosco International School Matunga and was Rector of St. Joseph's Kurla, where he turned that institute on its head from a simple ITI producing grade V and VI category work force to re-inventing the institute to what it is today. He established there a Management institute with Bachelors and Masters' degree, An Engineering institute with degrees and diplomas in IT, Marine and Electronic engineering. A top end Hospitality degree institute and a well equipped Mass media and Communications Degree College. Least to say, it is one of the premier institutes of the Salesians in India, all due to his leadership and vision. We know he brings a great depth of his wisdom and innovative perspectives to DB Nerul, much beyond the Student Counselor position he will be handling at Don Bosco Nerul.
