1. Intellectual Formation

Don Bosco Technical Secondary School, Embu follows Kenyan Educational System. Its educational approach stresses on a high quality of academic performance. In this school, the pass mark is 50% and is equal to C according to our grading system. From Form I to Form III every student is expected to attain 50% in all subjects; below 50% in any three subjects a student will not be promoted the following year into the next Form. In the case of failure of any student to cope with the educational demands, the school does not allow repeating the class. The concerned student must leave the school and find another school on his own. Text books are provided to the students. The reference books remain in the Library. The students are encouraged to use them to broaden their knowledge through extra readings.

2. Cultural Formation

By means of study and work, individuals take command of the world, cooperating with God the Creator in a never-ending process of creating a better world. The pupils of this Salesian school are taught the dignity of work and a sense of responsibility. Manual work is a necessary and noble element of the Salesian system of education for the formation of young people. Through manual work, students are prepared to embrace any kind of life. Work also encourages solidarity with the millions of Kenyans who toil for their daily sustenance, as well as with their parents, who make enormous sacrifices to pay their school fees. The school promotes all cultural elements of the people of Kenya that align with the Catholic faith, while simultaneously discouraging foreign cultural elements that are destructive and, at times, contrary to African culture.

3. Social Formation

The Salesian school is a big "family" where mutual respect and affection reign. The Rector (Director) is the father of this family. The students are always free to turn to him for advice, guidance, and encouragement in their difficulties. The same family spirit assists and inspires the students in all their activities. Corrections, admonitions, or punishments are necessary to ensure personal improvement. Obedience is a necessary virtue in the formation of the young. All the Salesians and staff members are there to take the place of the parents. With love and concern, they will make every effort in the formation of the young people entrusted to their care. Therefore, all students promptly obey the authorities of the school and the regulations of the school.

4. Groups and Movement

The school promotes various groups and movements to help the students develop their different talents and skills, as well as to provide them with the experience of togetherness. With permission from the school administration, students can form associations, solidarities, or clubs for the benefit of the community or for their own enrichment. The group will have an assigned patron who will guide and support the group in its journey towards the desired objective.

Our School Band

Our school band is a vibrant and dynamic ensemble that captivates audiences with their exceptional musical talent and infectious enthusiasm. Comprising dedicated and passionate student musicians, the band demonstrates an unwavering commitment to musical excellence and teamwork. They tirelessly rehearse and collaborate, honing their skills and perfecting their performances. With a diverse repertoire ranging from classical masterpieces to contemporary hits, the band showcases their versatility and ability to adapt to different musical genres. Through their captivating performances at school events, concerts, and competitions, our school band not only entertains but also inspires and uplifts the entire school community. Their harmonious melodies and synchronized rhythms truly exemplify the power of music to bring people together and create unforgettable moments.

Sports Facilities

The football ground provides a spacious and well-maintained pitch, allowing players to engage in thrilling matches while honing their skills and teamwork. The basketball ground offers a state-of-the-art court where students can showcase their agility and basketball prowess. Additionally, our volleyball pitch provides a dedicated space for students to enjoy competitive and recreational games, promoting physical fitness and camaraderie.
