Mekanissa: A two day seminar was organized for the teachers and supporting staff of Don Bosco Mekanissa on 12 and 13 of October. The seminar was a long awaited one as plans for it were already in the process many months ago. The seminar was conducted by Abba Samuel Abraha SDB, the director of the Don Bosco School of Soddo
and currently holds the position as the in charge for Youth Centers in Ethiopia. Fr. Samuel is well appreciated in the province as he has been going around in various schools and parishes giving seminar and workshops on similar topic. In Mekanissa too, the seminar of Abba Samuel was highly appreciated by all the participants. Fr. Samuel touched upon the key topics of Salesian Pedagogy and Preventive System insisting with the teachers that Don Bosco's preventive system was not only a pedagogy but also a spirituality to be followed by the students as well as the teachers. The teachers expressed their appreciation by requesting such workshops more often in the school. Certainly the seminar has given a boost to the teachers to be more committed and dedicated in the formation of the young people.
