Hyderabad, May. 30. For the first time in the history of Don Bosco Navajeevan, Hyderabad, two of our boys, Shiva and Pavan, got selected for the coveted Andhra Pradesh Residential School (APRS) programme.  The entrance test conducted on April 27, 2014 was taken by five boys from Navajeevan, besides the thousands from the state. Securing this coveted admission, purely on the basis of their hard work, in spite of not having the best of education so far and the least of comforts, is what we congratulate them for.
For the first time in the history of Don Bosco Navajeevan, a home for street involved children and young at Risk of Hyderabad, five of our children appeared for the selection exam conducted on 27th April 2014 of Andhra Pradesh Residential Schools admission Test. These schools are run by the Government of Andhra Pradesh for the children who are economically poor but good in studies and selection is purely on the basis of merit.  

In our first attempt itself two of our boys Master Shiva and Master Pavan residing in Don Bosco Rehabilitation Centre, Ramanthapur secured this coveted admission. Studying at the Zilla Parishat Elementary School, Ramanthapur and being qualified for the admission into A P Residential Schools under APREI Society, Hyderabad is the a great achievement. Master Shiva is given admission in APRS Vanasthalipuram in Hyderabad district and Master Pavan is given admission in APRS Keesaragutta, Ranga Reddy District.

By getting admission in AP Residential Schools, these boys are eligible for the following benefits: Free residential education from 5th to Intermediate, good training in spoken English, Sports and games training, integral formation, Yoga and meditation, dance and music, They are also prepared for the AP Competitive examination and are given EAMCET coaching, free medical aid, and other basic needs like clothes, shoes, tie, school bag, notebooks and text books.

We thank Fr. Ignatius Peyyala SDB, the Dean of Studies for taking the good initiative to encourage children to write these competitive exams and get selected for free education sponsored by the government of Andhra Pradesh.  Shiva and Pavan are now inspirational models for children in our centres to aim and strive for excellence in education, through dint of hard work and support. We wish them all the best and a bright future to them.
