DBTC, Cebu City (Aug. 5, 2018) – The new administration of Don Bosco Technical College (DBTC) Cebu, Inc. has issued a reminder to students and an advisory to parents in time for the start of classes on Aug. 7.

FR. Fidel inspects the campus with Bosconian Odyssey editors. Behind them is the college kiosk, now off limits to Bosconians’ relatives who bring them to and fetch them from school.

“DBTC welcomes everyone for the new school year. Weather permitting, classes will open on August 7, 2019,” notes the message from the office of the School President, Fr. Fidel Ma. D. Orendain, SDB, Ph.D.

The advisory reminded the Bosconians to report to school with “a new and proper haircut,” and guided them to “bring (a) small bag with diary and prayer guide.”

As a kick off of the new School Year 2019-2020 and starting it with the right discipline, the school recommended to both students and parents who accompany their children to school to arrive before 7:00am.

DROP and go, driving parents are advised. Parking and standing in this area will no longer be allowed to avoid a bottleneck.


“Drop-and-Go will be implemented,” the school also announced.

It advised parents and those driving students to school to be out of the campus by 7:30am, “except those with transactions.”

Offices on Aug. 7 will open at 8:15am and 10:30am by Aug. 8, it added.

PARENTS are reminded to come to school in proper attire.

Meanwhile, those who will fetch the students after classes “are required to (wait and) stay near the guardhouse and not in the campus kiosks.”

“Please dress appropriately,” the advisory reminded the parents and members of the household who send Bosconians to and fetch them from DBTC.

With the new canteen now open, the school advised students who plan to have meals there to “bring their own utensils,” at least their own spoon and fork as food trays will be served to those who buy food from the canteen concessionaire.
